Ramblings





I do not remember the source of this picture to give credit..... I also thought it may be from Tracey at French Larkspur.... I always love her belongs and lovely inspiration....



It rained over night... the sun was shinning for 5 minutes and now it is grey and more rain expected... according to the forecast... I am thinking of heading to the basement rec area for creating a birthday card for my sweet grand daughter and a couple Valentines for a couple friends... I feel the need for some "ME" time... I hope once down there I don't suffer from creative block of which happens every one in awhile...especially if I am sewing... I have had many ideas traveling through my head as of last as a desire for some change seems to be occurring... I have this one spot in the kitchen-dining area of our home I would like to change out... I have been thinking I would like some unique blackboard there that I can write some beautiful French words on to add some romance to that area... This idea may take awhile as the search takes place... A trip to the antique stores or flea markets will most likely be needed and I am not sure that is in the budget right now... Just maybe a old cupboard door or window may be somewhere to be found that can be re purposed with some blackboard pant... I did search the Internet and found the one... but 249.00... Loved it but you got to be kidding me right.... no way is that in my allowance.....Finding a way to transform a object for re purpose will bring meaning , pleasure, and purpose. Creating with what I have or a found object may not allow me to have the 249.00 blackboard but it is also important that I don't find myself disappointed not being able to allow myself this sort of luxury... I actually can honestly say the challenge of creating and searching out something presents something I find rewarding...
REMEMBER...
Believing when you follow your heart... dreams can come true.. Creating even on a tight budget shouldn't stop you from doing something that you love or you find important to you.... With these thoughts always embedded in mind, many lovely things have been created.....
