Today's Stamping

More samples for ISC today. I am surprised I was able to stamp anything at all today! I have been going alllllllll day!

These are using the Art4FramesII, and the flower from the About Me Sheet from ISC
I have to say I LOVE the flower on the About Me sheet-its gorgeous.
Making the "little things" card today actually got me thinking about how grateful I really am for the little things. For about the past month I have sort of been off, have had my mind on alot of crap and just feeling like something is missing. Now that my muse is coming back and the other issues are being resolved, today I have really counted my blessings. Not that I have thought my life is bad-its not at all. Just crap-life happens. But sometimes I get so sucked into things I forget about whats really important, and what brings me joy. I have been doing some creative stuff the past few days and its really helped my days become more "balanced" I guess you would say. I work out, I have become a freak over nutrition and good health. But thats something new for me-Art and creativity have been my sanity for a number of years. I realize I have neglected that side of me. Although it was hard for me to get back into it, and I really had to push myself, I am so glad I did. I have realized it just takes effort.
As the issues in my life are resolving, I see how despite how hard it is, I need to push myself, and no matter what, I need to focus on keeping myself "balanced." A friend of mine recently told me, after telling her how I feel (sort of blah), that she thinks its from Let down, from selling the business. I know that takes time. True, I do have more time on my hands, but honestly-not much! I am still going like crazy. Honestly, I don't know how I managed to keep the business running. Its no wonder I was on the brink of a nervous breakdown.
I am SO happy to be able to take care of myself physically and mentally. I feel wonderful, being able to take some time for myself and be more concious of my health.

These are wonderful, I especially love the first one Kristy!!! I too agree, it's so hard to find a happy balance, especially for moms because we are so intune with the needs of our children and our families that we forget we have to take care of ourselves as well. It's just trying to find that happy center area where we can make sure we're taking care of ourselves right so we can then in turn take care of our family right as well. I'm glad to see that you've found that center place!
