"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

A Little Slice of Adventure!

Just wanted to let you all know that I 
haven't forgotten about you.
You are all way too special to me to forget! 

  I've been busy creating and creating for an 
art festival that I am a vendor in, coming up this 
weekend and the next.  I've not had much time to visit
with you all 
or to put up many blog posts either.
I miss writing and I miss You!

Our daughter Jaymie came to visit us this past weekend
and when that happens the camera always comes out!

So this is a quick post I'm leaving today
so I can get back to creating. 
(Although, I'm not sure how to do the quick thingy)

I've not done this vendor thing before so
 I'm a little apprehensive but loving the idea of
trying a new adventure.  It's part of what makes 
life so fun and interesting.
I'm acting out of obedience
to my  "Action" word that I committed to
during my 2010 new year.

That is why, even if I don't sell one creation, I can still
pat myself on the back and be proud that I 
stuck to my commitment and tried something new.

Wow, it sounds like
I'm giving myself my own pep talk here!
Really though, my wish for you my friends,
is that you too, will
not hold back because of fear of failure! 

 My new "Pumpkin Patch"
original watercolor pendant creation

"People go farther 
than they thought they 
could when someone thinks they can."
John C. Maxwell

......and I know..... YOU CAN!!!!

Do something new today, or this week!  Do something
you've never done before.
Even if it's as small as
trying a new recipe or taking a walk outside
on a new path 
you haven't stepped before. 

 "Star light. Star bright.
                     Look up at the sky tonight
and breathe in some of that
      magical stardust.
            Don't worry - it won't  
                                   make you sneeze."
         Cheryl Hawkinson  

On to Adventure!

(see, I told ya I didn't know how to do the quick thingy!)

You are your girl are so cute. Love that picture. Good for you for doing the art fair. I haven't braved such a thing yet. I'm just lazy I guess...or afraid. Can't decide which. Your pumpkin necklace is adorable. Sooo much talent!!!
