Life's Lessons Project

Okay, I have been thinking about what I want to post first as a project.
I am always trying to work on making my life better and what I want it to be.
 I was actually inspired by another's blog and would
 like to do something similiar.
 I am going to pick a task and add it to my daily list of things to do, but it isn't a tangible task.
This is the act of making myself a better, happier, kinder type of person.

There is also selfless, grateful, thoughtful, and more, but you get the idea. The tasks will coincide with what I am learning at the time in my life, you know, life's lessons. So, that is what I will call this project: Life's Lessons.

The first lesson is to... Be Aware

What I am going to do is to scrapbook a page with what this means to me.
And then post it here on my blog for a visual.

Being Aware of the seasons, nature, people, and how I act towards others.

Also, being especially aware of
how I think, because our
 thoughts, shape our actions.

If you would like to join me in this adventure,
because not only is it a project, but an
adventure too,
Then you could also take this action,
and make it your own.
If you also make a scrapbook page
please leave a comment and link to your page
in the comment section.

I want to do at least one each month,
 this one will be
July 2011.

Thanks for stopping by
and please leave a comment before you go.

Moments that Matter Most

I found this video
It is so great!
Watch and enjoy...

It is a message that I need to remember always

A New Beginning

Hi, I am starting a new blog today. I don't know why but I feel compelled to write and share my thoughts with people. I also like to share my artwork which will be coming along soon in future posts. I know, you are all awaiting with anticipation...what is she going to show us...awww, I can't wait to see....
Well, it's going to be wonderful, and fantastic, at least that's what my mom would say, so ......
I guess I better get going on some kind of project so I can post it. Or maybe I could finish something I already started some time ago...(it's been awhile since I even looked at my projects, I hope I can find something interesting and also worth finishing!) I could also give them as gifts, right? (Isn't that what everyone does to those projects that aren't quite what they thought they would be?) I guess I will find out once I get into my project box.
Just so you know, I do like to quilt, and sew. I also like to get my fingers dirty, hence the name of my blog. But, as I was saying, I like to get my finger dirty with ink, paint, chalk, graphite, and all kinds of art stuff. I draw, paint, make cards, create scrapbook pages, and dabble in many other arts and crafts projects if I have the inclination to do so. Oh, and I also like to take photographs, you know, pictures. I have a digital camera and the beauty of God's creations are just irresistable. I also have grandkids that are so much fun to have around.
Speaking of grandchildren, it is my opinion that grandchildren are the reward of raising your own children. It is a tough job to be a parent and when those grandchildren come along, it suddenly becomes joyful. Yes, raising your own children is very rewarding and as a parent I did feel joy with my own kids, but I never knew that my grandchildren would tug at my heartstrings so much!
Well, this is getting awfully long, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't even get all the way through this, so until next time.....
