“I’m Crafty and You’re Glue…”

Lately life has been hard as it tends to become on Wednesdays in September.  (Although they have nothing on 4:25pm on Thursdays in January.)  For some reason, quotes work for me.  So I’ve decided to occasionally share some of them with you.  When I remember.

As many of you know I’m incredibly crafty and so I made this:

I should get a job at Hobby Lobby

I should get a job at Hobby Lobby

If you’d like to make it, buy greeting cards, 2 pieces of paper, tape and a frame and have at it.  (If you spend longer than 10 minutes, you did it wrong.)

Here is the greeting card (Upper right in the frame) I’ve been reading a lot lately:

The secret to the fabulous life is to Live imperfectly with great delight.

In small print: the great thing is, Once we let go of being everything, we have the opportunity to be gloriously ourselves.

It’s pretty much the same as the e.e. cummings poem I have practically memorized:

To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.

Some of you may be surprised I have to remind myself to “just be me.”  But there you have it.

What are your go to quotes?

    Love that quote! It’s going on my quote list. (I have a list but I don’t know what to do with it.)
    One of my faves is a question…
    What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
    It’s on my tea mug. 🙂
