Give Thanks

Give thanks as you go about your week maneuvering through the hustle and bustle of, cooking the turkey, family & friends, travel and shopping remember to give heartfelt gratitude along the way mixed in with some patience in your pocket as you stand in line.

Reflect on your blessings, the love you have for others and that they have for you. This can be a very sad time of the year for some and this year it is for so many to so reach out, give a random act of kindness to someone. Love each other. Give hope. Give peace. Give laughter. Give hugs. A smile. A song or two.

The blindness of color reveals the brightness from within. Take a moment to see the light, the love, the peace we each have to offer within us in our own unique way and share it! Over and over again.  Share kindness, compassion, joy. Be the light others want to follow and share. Be the smile others may hardly ever see. Be the laughter some may never hear. Be the hope, the peace many wish for but rarely see. Give thanks for all you are and where you are in your life. You are worthy, blessed, beautiful and kind and truly make a difference. I'm forever grateful for each and every one of you. May your harvest be abundant and the laughter, smiles, hugs, love, peace, and hope never ending!

Look Book Series 16: Glue Books

small books made using glue and scraps of paper

Glue books are super easy and so fun to make you can't stop at just one! It's a great way to use up all the little scraps of paper from other projects and make something new. Here is a little 5-minute video of a flip through for the ones I created. These glue books were inspired by my creative friend Robin Mead & Nik the Booksmith. Enjoy.
