January 2013 Sneak Peek #3


Have you ever pressed up against a deadline so closely that you could see your breath fogging up the glass? That is becoming familiar territory for me. I just put a bow on our January 2013 introduction and the catalog has to go to print today!! I am feeling a little worn down with this and the season at Marmalade (we had a Midnight Madness event last night. Til, you guessed it….midnight!) so might have a nap in my future, but I wanted to share the next few cards with you.

I love this image and think it is going to look smashing as a canvas. This one speaks for itself, I believe it to be true.

I feel like the idea of 'living your dream” is a tad out of control in our society today. Perhaps rather…out of context.

Now, you know me, I am no dream crusher! I love dreams… I have them all the time! Sometimes several times a day! But I think the trouble is when we expect them to happen. We are entitled to do the dreaming, not to have them come true…that part is up to us. And dreams are hard work….and risk and trust and failure and try agains…and failure…and try agains. It's big stuff. In fact, the bigger and more personal they are, the harder they get. But the more magnificent also.

So, this lovely little reality check is brought to you today by Curly Girl Design and the road less traveled. Get on out there!


Let me know what you think!
