Well, it's the last day of January--end of the month and end of my Phrase A Day endeavor. Sadly, what I'd hoped to achieve with this personal challenge did not necessarily happen. I'd wanted to learn more about the Procreate app, to explore and try some different writing styles. Unfortunately, having been sick for most of the month, I could only manage to squeak out a few here and there in their somewhat traditional sense. Don't get me wrong, practicing writing with the iPad Pro 10.5 did help, but I had wanted to get more out of the app to [...]
What would it be like to have a 'perfect' life? hmm. I'd venture to say it would be pretty boring, wouldn't you? It's the downs that make the ups so sweet. The important part of life is how you approach it. Just live the best life you can and it will be perfect in its own way. Say hello to today's Phrase A Day. I thought it would be a perfect accent in my home. Just a sweet reminder that our life is pretty darn good--even with the downs.
You wouldn't think that someone who works in this creative industry would need this as a reminder, but boy, do I! I need to get more creative with my personal documenting for starters. Even this Phrase A Day personal challenge didn't even work out like I'd planned, what with being sick and all most of the month. There's just so much I want--and need--to do. Alas, here's today's Phrase A Day....
If there's one thing I'm pretty darn good at, it's appreciating the beauty in even the simplest of things. A laugh, my daily Dr. Pepper, fresh air, a spontaneous drive....there are so much beauty and things to be grateful for in everyday life--so much to be joyful for. You can find it anywhere. And that's what brings us to today's Phrase A Day. It's just amazing how your perspective on life can change when you look for what's good in it rather than dwell on what's not going right.
Admission time. I love Harry Potter. I own all the movies, yet when it's a Harry Potter Weekend on cable, I'm so excited! Am I the only one? My favorites are 3, 5 and 6. Although, in the 6th the movie it ends when Harry and Dumbledore go off to the island to find the horcrux, In my world, Dumbledore doesn't die. ;) We often quote this movie in our household...all of us being HP fans and all. And so I thought I'd do a Harry Potter quote for today's Phrase A Day. Not only would it be [...]
Graduation of a child, particularly for high school, can be an overwhelming time. So many things happening that I think that we can forget to capture little details. That's why I love this spread by our Miss Marcy! This is such a sweet moment, forever displayed in her traveler's notebook. I know it never occurred to me to capture my girls 'primping' for the big moment. This is so simply and beautifully done! love it. Here's what Marcy has to say: I’m proud to say that keeping my memory keeping simple is a mantra that has followed [...]
Something very exciting has arrived in the land of KBS! If you are a fan of the stamps By The Numbers and Brooklyn, then you're gonna love theses! Say hello to Brooklyn XL (right) and Brooklyn SM (center). Brooklyn XL is the same size as By The Numbers. The letters are 1.5" tall and come on a 6x8" sheet. Soooo many of you have asked for an alphabet in this size and now we have it. It is, however, LIMITED QUANTITY. Once it's gone, it's gone. Please do not wait to order this if you think you may want it because [...]
If you've never heard the song Always Stay Humble And Kind by Tim McGraw, you are missing out. It is the most amazing music and lyrics. It touches me every time I hear it. The world could use more of this. And it's today's Phrase A Day. And if you need to hear it like me...here it is.
You all know what a big fan I am with nature. Even sitting here in my chair (rather than laying bed this past week) where I can see my beautiful mountains on these gorgeous clear days in January has got me loving what I'm seeing, even though I'm not out in it. It's so true, even the smallest dose can change the way you feel. Nature is the today's Phrase A Day.
What is it about new clothes that make you feel so good? I mean, the 'old' clothes were new once too. They should make you feel good still, right? Some may, some may not. All I know is I've been down that 'feel good' road a bit myself after getting new jeans into the wardrobe...daughters approved jeans even. It may have snowballed from there, but I will neither confirm nor deny that. And it looks like our darling Laura has been on the 'feel good' road trip too recently! Only I wish my road trip was for the same reason [...]
