All the way from the Yukon!

Look what I recieved in the mail amidst the bills and advertisements and pizza coupons....this little bit of loveliness created by Kim Henkel! I just love it with it's little windows and her art. It is so nicely done with a layering of wax on top. So many different techniques here that all work so beautifully together. Check our her blog for more of her heartfelt creations! Thank you Kim, I will treasure it!

Also, I got word that Chantal received hers in the mail as well. This was really a great project to take part in. It didn't require much time but certainly put some rusty skills to use and it's just simply amazing to realize how small our world really is.  From Australia to Florida to the Yukon...kindness and creativity travels along our globe. So happy to take part.

Also, today is Wishcasting Wednesday with Jamie Ridler. I missed last week and it was all about celebrating. I am most definitely one who can find things to celebrate! This week's prompt is "What do you wish to invite in?" I wish to invite in a sense of comfort and relaxation. I have been so harried and hurried these last few months, that I really want to feel relaxed. I know that my life is probably going to keep going at this pace given all that I want to do, but I'm wondering if there is a way to be relaxed in my comings and goings and especially my doings?  To be able to check things off the list and run the errands and juggle the balls of modern day life but to do so in a relaxed, comfortable manner?  I have always thought of myself as a person who thrives on racing to the deadline. I often will leave things to the final stretch so that I will feel that rush of getting it done, kind of like a challenge to myself. I think I have always been this way....but maybe there is a different way for me?  I don't know, I'm going to have to think on this. Anyone else have any thoughts on this? I'm going to take a breath and invite some relaxation in this Thanksgiving weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate it! And even if you aren't in the States, feel free to be thankful....it doesn't really need a special day!

  11. I am glad my postcard made it to you safely. I enjoyed making it, and am glad you like it. I wish for you both comfort and relaxation. Yes life can get super busy at time - I too seem to challenge myself to fit it all in, but finding time to relax is so important. Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend.
