I have been challenging myself to use up the art supplies and things I have on hand before acquiring more. Anybody with me on this challenge?
This is easier said then done because I love junk! However, I am really, really, really being intentional on making progress in this area (with the exception of rusty metal objects I find on the ground–my hands become like magnets!!!).
Once I had the hearts cut out, I decided to cut pieces of the ribbon and attach to the hearts with double sided sticky tape. I did not think it through before cutting the heart ribbon and ended up cutting tiny pieces to stick to the back of each little square.
My brain kicked in and I placed the XO ribbon on the tape and then cut each XO out (much faster).
One of my favorite quotes came to my mind as I was cutting the rose petals into hearts. It is from Saint Therese of Lisieux and is a perfect reminder how we all have a special place and purpose in this world.
“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
I love that! Here’s to your heart being filled with inspiration and purpose to shine!
