A Love Quote


A Love Quote

I found this quote on Pinterest. Like many images on Pinterest, the source never led me to the original. I really wanted to print it out, so I made my own version. And I made this printable so you can print it out, too!

This quote is so perfect because it reminds me to look for the magic in those that I love. We all get so bogged down with the day-to-day grind that we end up yelling, blaming and criticizing those that we adore, which is all wrong. Let’s print this out and hang it in our bathrooms (the place where we will surely read it every day) to help us look for the magic, and turn to love. ♡

Have a happy week!

Creativity Takes Courage


Creativity Takes Courage

The winds are picking up outside, the trees are swaying. I think my power is going to go out at any minute. I should be packing, we have a noon town-wide curfew. We are going to a friend’s house, to her basement. It’s Frankenstorm 2012. But here I am at my computer, creating one last post. Some words to think about this week while we have no power (they are predicting a 10 day outage).

I love this quote from one of my favorite painters, Henri Matisse. For me, creativity means stepping outside of the box and putting yourself out there.

Stay safe, my friends! (During the storm, I mean…not in your creative life!)
