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.
Do you find that stress squashes your creativity? Teacher performance portfolios are due next
week so I find myself feeling guilty spending time creating when I should be slaving away at the keyboard. While I did cut back in participating in
swaps, I still had the monthly series I needed to complete and a spring journal
I showed you the jar of hearts last week, here is the completed ATC:

When I finish these cards they just seemed flat & boring so I scouted the stores for some charms to add. Found these colored flowers at Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section. They added the needed punch I was looking for without distracting from the quotes.
Blue Flower Flourish
I found some die cut ATC’s at Hobby Lobby and decided to see
how they would look using them in the colored flower series. They were fussier to cut out when applying the
backing. I am not fond of this new flower I used; it looks
cheap - won’t be using it again.
