Can you imagine starting your day this way? "Making it Happen" doesn't mean you have to achieve and finish in that very same day. It can be something small, but doing it with a positive attitude that you will start with the intention of making it happen. Just cleaning out a closet is making it happen instead of procrastinating. I am a firm believer in substituting a negative thought instantly with something more happy and positive driven.
Each night I write the things I would like to get done in the next day. When I awake I tell myself "I'm gonna Make it Happen". I may not get to everything, but crossing things off the list makes me happier than a bird with a french fry!
My new book coming out end of summer/late fall this year had one thing missing when I sent in the manuscript to my publisher. The "head shot" photograph that goes on the back of the book. I don't like getting my picture taken. I am way to critical of myself.....those aging lines,5 inches cut off of my hair, visible signs of loving cheese, bread and sweets a little to much, medications that puff ya out. But the time came for me to get this done. I went over to Bonnie McCaffrey's studio ( a few miles from my house) where she did the photo shoot. Tomorrow I will be reviewing with her the official "head shot". She did some fun pics of me as you can see above. Bonnie makes you feel comfortable and says some pretty funny stuff to get ya laughing.I've come to terms that pictures are inevitable and I am Me and that just how it has to be! Here is her Facebook link to see some awesome portrait photography she does. CLICK HERE.
On my Facebook professional page, I was showing how I make a workshop kit with all the pieces traced and cut so you are ready to begin. (You can click on the picture above if you would like this pattern). Sherry Rogers-Harrison asked if she could do something special with it and I am tickled to what she did.
It goes to show you you that an applique pattern has multiple purposes!
One thing I can't so without, is my little electric battery eraser. It even erased colored pencil beautifully. I own 2 of these! To me, these are worth every penny!
And.....Your Color Fix for Today!
