I love Sundays...truly the best day each week in my book. Busy? Yes, but a good busy, and when the busy is over and I'm home with my favorite people, it's the sweetest feeling.
It's quiet right now...with one snoring, and one playing right here by my side, no TV chaos, no distractions, just us, and I love it. These moments seem few and far between at times and I realize they are fleeting, and with that knowledge, comes the desire I have to cherish them, hold onto them, and capture them in my heart and mind.
So today's project was created for Sizzix and uses another one of Brenda Walton's beautiful dies...her dies are delicious to my shabby, crafty, soul, so I find I am always drawn to them. This is the Sizzix Bigz L Notepad Cover Die. So for you post-it note lovers, a fun way to dress them up, give them away as gifts, and maybe just create a little beauty for life's ordinary moments.
I used Crate Paper's Kiss Kiss collection to dress up my notepad cover, and then created a band to secure the notepad cover using vintage trim, My Craft Spot scrunched seam binding, and a metal badge from A Flair for Buttons, Let Them Eat Cake collection.
So, because it's my favorite day of the week, and I'm feeling happy inside, I will be giving this little project away to one of you. Just leave me a comment telling me what brings you deep happiness...the kind that makes you thank your lucky stars for the life you have been given...the kind that gives you a glimpse into what heaven must be like :).
I'll choose a winner on Tuesday and will announce them here later that day.
Today, this quote is speaking directly to me...and is something I work on each moment of each day.
I will conquer this hurt though...it's my challenge for this life, and I will not let it change me, except for the better. One day at a time, yes?
Lift up your heart and know you are loved today.
