Well there's one benefit to being down with a cold....lots of free time!  I've spent the last couple of days browsing my Annual Inspirations Idea Book, hitting the consultants website and pinning away.  Really love being inspired to create!

Oh yeah and I ordered some new supplies!  I'm like a kid in a candy shop except my addiction is Making Pretty Things :)  Can't wait to get back in my studio later this week.

So, what have you been working on?  Recently I signed up for the Hospitality Team at my church to help with our Alpha program this Fall.  I got really excited when the coordinator asked about favors...well that led to centerpieces too.  I love sharing my talents and of course Making Pretty Things ;)  So the centerpiece vision came easily but what I've struggled with is the favor.  One would think that was the easy part, papercrafting right???  Not so much!

Sometimes I really struggle with perfection which in turn shuts me down and brings on a whole load of negative feelings.  You know those thoughts that say you're not good enough, not talented enough, etc.  Then an act of simple obedience reminds you of who you are in Christ.  A friend posted this verse today, it was exactly what I needed to hear.  I am Thankful for words of Encouragement.  I am Thankful for my friends and family.  I am Thankful for the Faithful followers of Christ who remind me of His promises.

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

Happy Creating!
