Finding New Things.

There's always time to stop and "Smell the Roses" so they say.
We all have such full lives that we forget to sit still and just enjoy our time to do this. I always say there is not enough time in the day,well maybe there isn't as we try to cram one hundred and one things into a normal day, but why do we do it?
Are we afraid to just sit?
I have always been one to make very good use of my time and have gone from one thing to the next, just as the norm. So I was just thinking about this and have come to the conclusion that I am a very lucky person health wise, daily living wise and mentally wise, altho maybe I only think I am mentally OK!!! LOL What !!!!
So, I am taking stock of myself and really not going to put too much on myself from now on. Dont know how that sounds to any one else. I think I am meaning to say, I am not going to feel guilty about whether I should have done this or that by this or that time. Thinking of course of all those UFO's among other things that dont get done around here LOL!!! they'll still get done. As they say there is always tomorrow, but knowing for some poor souls there is not always tomorrow.So that is why I feel so lucky in the life I have, and resolve to be even better at living it.Which means in my book ,be really positve in the things you can be, and dont worry about the things you cant be. No more useless thoughts that dont help the day. Do you know that Stress leads to more illnesses that anything else, and if we did not let all the unwanted stressful things creep in we would be so much better, so let it all go, and then there will be time to just sit and Smell the Roses.XX
Now I have been so uplifted by the replies I have received re my recipe in here.
Thank you all so much hope you really enjoy.
I have found some lovely Blogs in my quest in finding new things,
Here Are two recent ones.
Some lovely ladies who have caught my interest.
You may have noticed that I have not been so diligent in getting my blogging done, well of course no one needs a glass ball(cant afford a Crystal one, LOL) to know why I havent been here really, as of course I come here every day I really do , BUT along the way I stop and SMELL THE ROSES, and of course then never get the time to stay and do.

That is because there are so many lovely blogs to read.
I always find such interesting ones to follow,
See my righthand list

Here you can see what I have been working on of late. I am an avid Cindy Leitz Polymer clay fan and watch her video instructions and learn so much from them and here is the latest offering. Book beads she called them
My D.Jacqui, tells me,

Books are like people,when they are open they are always interesting, when they are closed it is like a little mystery parcel waiting to be explored. These little books are a perfect metaphor for your friendships, eveyone is always a bit closed but still waiting to be opened up by new friendships to reveal more of themselves. this is what keeps a friendship from waning as there is always still so much to learn from each other.

I loved this, dont know if she actually wrote this or whether it has been heard of before, but whatever it is a nice compliment to my little Cindy books so I will keep making them and give them to my friends with Jacquis words in mind.

So have a lovely day and see your friends in a new light. Cherish them are I'm sure they cherish you. I know I cherish all my friends.

Hi Rita thanks for you rcomment. Yes I cant stop making them

Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor said...

Thank you for the mention Rita!

Love your book beads! Turned out great. Your friends sentiments about books is really lovely. You could print up that little story and add it along with your gifts, so that the recipients knew the meaning behind their gift.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family! Love having you around the site and thank you again for your support!

I'm sorry Elizabeth, I just read the comment I wrote and noticed I said Rita instead of Elizabeth... Must have been a brain glitch. Read the comment from Rita and then put her name instead of yours. Happens this time of the year!!

Hope you have a lovely Christmas with your family. It's going to be a great year, filled with all kinds of polymer clay adventures!
