my last post was the Queen of Patience award presented to Audrey Frelx of Cute and Some, she deserves this award again for remaining a loyal and patient follower of my blog. Audrey continues to visit and leave beautiful words of friendship despite my long absense from the blogging world. many times in my absense, i have thought of deleting my blog because of my lack of posts. however Audrey always seemed to visit when i was at that point and i would remember how encouraging my blog followers (or as i like to refer to them as, my artful spirits) had always been.
i also remember why i started this blog...i wanted to have a place where i can upload photos of the cards and crafts that i create, so i have a record of what i have tried, what worked and what did not. papercrafting is a passion and my studio is my zen space for me to go to and let my "artful spirit" express itself. my blog was never meant to be a daily blog or a blog of my personal life. right now my real world is taking up a lot of time and energy and my zen space is getting more difficult to get to and i have no time to even visit the beautiful blogs i enjoy following.
the photos i have posted, are the pumpkin table favors i made in the summer that were used at a fall wedding. the newlyweds' photographer sent me the photos so i could see the final tablescape and enjoy how the pumpkins looked with the other table decor. with my american friends celebrating thanksgiving soon, i thought i would share this photo, even though most of us papercrafters are thinking christmas. i want to leave this post with my sincerest wishes for a season of thanksgiving and a heart of peace and generosity to all. give a gift of yourself even if it is just a kind word or a smile, you never know how far that simple act will take another person.
