I ran into my Hallmark store to pick out a birthday card for my sister. Beautiful cards are my thing. They are expensive but a thoughtfully selected card conveys just the right sentiment for the moment. I noticed the slogan on the bag when I got home. "Life is a special occasion." It stopped me in my tracks for a moment. Even though I know it's a Hallmark promotional phrase, I love it! I hope to have this philosophy when I am old and gray ( oh wait, I already am graying)...let me re-phrase this. Throughout my life, no matter how long it lasts, I hope that I have this attitude. Some days are tough to get through and some days are like a beautiful summer breeze.
I was styling some photos for my etsy shop the other day, when I decided to take a few shots just for the beauty of it.
I hope you take the time to make today a special occasion and simply view the beauty around you and love those in your path.
The three great loves of my life are,my friend and Savior Jesus, my husband and my four children. Ever since I was a tiny girl with strawberry blond hair and a nose covered with freckles, I have been creating beauty with my own hands. I have been blessed with an artistic eye and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty in my search for unique and beautiful treasures. I can often be spotted about town wearing a slight dusting of glitter and a few burns on my fingertips from my glue gun.
