I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
Early morning mist rests on the nature park as the full moon hangs in the sky.
Early Wednesday morning my
husband drew my attention to the full moon just as he was leaving for
work. I tried capturing its image in our
backyard but I didn't want roofs and wiring in the photo. I threw some clothes on and drove down the road
to the nature park, praying it would be open.
I walked into this clearing and the view was breath taking. The mist was still hovering above the grass and
the sky held a certain yellowish-pink haze. What an awe-inspiring sight!
There was a lot of media talk
over the occurrence of this full moon. The
Blue Moon is also known as the Full Sturgeon Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain
Moon or Full Red Moon. We will not see
it occur again until 2015.
The Fireball Hibiscus came into bloom this week.
Through the living room
window I spotted this lone red rose trying to bloom through the overgrown Ravenna
I am finding that by
connecting to Friday Finds I eagerly seek things during my week to be grateful
for. Capturing them with a memorable
photo is like sprinkles on top of ice cream.
It does not surprise me that it is the small things that bring me
joy. I always preferred small surprises
to big gifts.
Mission this week is to share
links to 5 favorite projects.
Folder Art Journal [VIDEO] How to Tutorial by Gretchen Miller at Creativity
in Motion. There is something about file
folders that get me all giddy (must be the teacher in me). I have a huge box of recycled folders and
thought this would be a great way to bring them back to life.
a table from an old stool by Kelsey at Tattered and Inked. This is practical as we all have that little
space where we need a little something
but the space is too small to fit much of anything. Besides, we can never have too many tables around to set our inspiring finds on!
4.Rainbow Fabric Bowl
by Wee Folk Art (you may have to hit the translate button). I love these bowls but fear I do not have the
patience to complete the project. One
5.Ten Dollar Ledges by Ana White – Homemaker.
I WILL tackle this
project (…one day). Problem is
woodworking is not my area of expertise so will have to enlist the hubby’s
Survival Candles over at TEOTWAWKI Blog.
While this is more practical it should be on all of our to-do
lists. I have been saving odd jars for a
while and forgot all about my plan to make these (we live in a tornado zone). I will have to get my jars together and get
the supplies. You know how it goes: if I
make them, we won’t need them but if I don’t make them, we will need them.
What favorite project do you
have to share? Do you have an unfinished
project sitting in a corner somewhere that you could start completing?
My mission for you this next
week; grab your camera (phone camera is best because it is always with you) and
take at least one photo this week of something you are grateful for. Come back and share it with me or start a
digital photo album of your finds.
