"When I talk about being present, I mean it in the most literal sense possible. I mean being in my life. I want my mind to stay inside my head for a little bit. I want my heart to dwell here, in the rooms of my days."
Don't you just love this??? I have always had a great love of quotes & poetry. Since I am the world's worst writer (seriously, that is why I taught math) I always appreciated finding an author who could put into words exactly how I might be feeling or paint a picture of something as real as if it was standing before me. What a gift that is to be able to do that . . . this excerpt was from an article written by Lindsey Mead. She has an awesome blog - A Design So Vast - definitely put this on your reading list!!!
What has been happening - we recently returned from our trip visiting Great Grammy in New York :)
And have been getting ready for fall - I know it is early but seriously, my son is obsessed with the holidays/seasons -
created some fall headbands . . .
some pumpkin faces . . .
some yummy fall cupcakes . . .
my other little man is growing bigger & bigger every day . . .
and already showing me he will not be a willing participant in picture-taking (see how he is covering his face) . . .
On the scrappy front . . .
I am currently under a pile of scrappy goodness - yes I have been scrapping. Since we talked last I have created 2 single page sketches, 2 double page sketches, 3 single page layouts, 3 double page layouts, and a mini album - WHAT???? Can you believe that??? And unfortunately - I can't share any of it - how sad is that??? Soon though, I promise :) And then this little old blog will be overloaded with scrappy pics :) I have lots of fun opportunities coming up this next month as well - one of which has already been posted HERE - so check it out :)
I am working on a little something & on the search for good quotes/poems - comment below with a favorite quote/poem of yours (or a link to it) and be in the running for these 2 awesome punches . . .
