None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Doing Nothing ...

Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering. – A.A. Milne

Hurry up & Relax ...

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time. ~John Lubbock, "Recreation," The Use of Life, 1894

Good morning!

Today we start a new Anything Goes Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and our sponsor this week is Patties Creations with a prize of 3 images
