it seems like as of late, I have been really needing to tell myself to keep CALM and let things roll of my shoulder. Just because I am on a pill to help make me happy, doesnt mean I always am. It's an every day challenge to look at the positive side of life and like the motto says, keep calm and carry on! I am still trying to learn lots of ways to counter act my anxiety and let things go that have come and gone.. but it's hard! I thought I could make me a reminder to look at every day to remember that I am strong and can carry on through anything if I put my mind to it.
Also, you might have noticed I changed the name of our blog. I named it "Keeping It Real". I have said this time and time again, I love reading blogs that share raw emotion and the realness of life and how hard it can be some times. But I also like reading the true happiness and spiritual experiences people experience every day. I think that's why I needed to change the name to mine kind of as a warning- if you don't like REAL raw blogs, don't read this one.. :) I've been getting some hater comments as of late.. I just feel like if people don't like the content of my blog, why do they sit by and read it?
First off, I have seen these quotes flying around the blogging world for a long time, but have never made my own. I used the font Ariel on Microsoft word, used a crown clipart, and printed it out on cardstock. The frame is 5x7. I then glued it to some sparkly blue paper I got from Roberts. The frame I got was from D.I. for 75 cents. ! Great steal. I will be making more of these and selling them in the Farmers market as well. Let me know if you want one! I can custom make it for you with the colors you want.
Here is another little thing I made. This frame is the same as the other one, there were two so I had to snag them up. 75 cents as well. I drilled two holes at the top to add ribbon in. I used a velvet scrapbook paper as the background.
Also, I got this HUGE chalk board from D.I for $3. I plan on using it to display prices or something at the farmers market too.
I have had a sucessful two days of crafting this week so far! love it...
Hope you all have a good day today- and thanks to all of my loyal followers and readers. Giveaway coming up soon? Yea? Like, some hair stuff or home decor stuff? Tell me what you would rather!
