Refresh. Renew. Rejuvenate. Revive.

So simple. The longest part of the whole project was waiting for the paint to dry. I took a 6x6 canvas and painted it with acrylic paints (burnt sienna and green-blue) and then used cardstock and ribbon and stamps and brads to make the rest. The quote on the inner most part reads, "Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy." Guillaume Apollinaire

I have hung it on the wall behind my desk, in the space that is cut out for a large monitor to go (my desk has cubbyholes in an upside down u shape sitting on top of it.

Today is the last day of vacation (weekends don't count) and it's only 16 degrees out which is too cold to run (ask me how I know this.. my new "too cold temperature" is 20. My cheeks have finally recovered from running in the bitter cold last Monday before Christmas) and so I'm going to go snuggle under my blanket and knit a sweater for that little niece who will be here in less than 3 weeks.

I like this lots.

I wish I'd known....people were getting her to sign stacks and stacks of books; I could have gotten you one.

You would like the Twilight books, hands down. I know you would.
