Inspiration Friday: When "Effer" is a Compliment

OK, as one who shares inspiration for Scrapbooking, Art Journaling, and Paper Crafting, I'd be remiss if I didn't send everyone out to the Effers at least once. Every Friday, these talented ladies share a "dare," a thematic challenge for the week. As they are also a Team "Pubster of the Day" for TwoPeas Publications Board today, they also get to be the Inspiration Friday stars of the show. Check it out, and enjoy the eye candy!

The Wisdom of Fast Food

Yes, yes. I know there is little wisdom in a McDonald's Breakfast. I saw Supersize Me, and all that...but that Sausage McMuffin with Egg sure was tasty. And who knew one could get such good advice from a coffee cup?

Why, yes. Yes I am. Posted by Picasa

Ten Things I love about Life

Across the American South, people are suffering terribly today, as they have been for the past week. Thanks to my friend Kelly Edgerton for this week's "Inspired by" challenge -- Ten things for which I'm grateful.

1) My beautiful children -- their gorgeous smiles, their sweet souls -- when they look at me with those loving eyes, I am awed that I could be worthy of the responsibility....

2) My imagination -- there is nothing that I love so much as time, pure, silent, uninterrupted time to wander aimlessly in my own thoughts.

3) Music -- My life has a soundtrack, and every note reminds me of a special time, a special place.

4) A young life lived in adventure and travel -- sure, I'm a bit homebound with wee kidlets these days, but I never feel too trapped when I can look back on all the years I spent living in places so fantastic that people will save their whole lives just to see.......

5) Creativity -- there is no greater high than the act of creation. I totally recomend Walking on Water by Madeleine L'Engle for some fabulous discussion about how we become closer to our Creator by exploring our own Creativity.......

6) Laughter -- I cannot fathom a day without one good laugh. Even our bitterest moments are absurd and wonderful and funny...without humor, all is hollow.

7) Lobster -- Real fresh Maine lobs with lots and lots of butter. My mouth waters just thinking about it......

8) Jane Austen -- Things haven't changed very much in two hundred years, have they?

9) Smells -- The only thing that can evoke more memories than music is scent....Cinnamon, cedar, tomatoes, almonds, baby skin..........

10) The basics: Warmth, food, water, a roof over my head, safety and a healthy family. These days, such things can not be taken for granted.......

Just a quick Baby Shot -- Here is the little lovely last night....She's on a BINGE of a growth spurt, so I'm sure she'll change right before our eyes.... Posted by Picasa
