Be Joyful

I was lucky enough to have the honor of buying one of these kits from Pam Garrison. As it turns out, that was the easy part. As part of the kit you can have her personalize the message on the garland & you can't believe how difficult that decision has been for me! I wanted a message that would allow me to hang this in my art studio after the holidays so that I can not only enjoy it's beauty but also continue to be inspired by it. After much time spent deliberating and polling my friends and sweet hubby (who I'm sure suffered regret at having encouraged me to buy it while I wavered back & forth about spending that much money on it) I have decided to go with the message - Be Joyful. I think that says it all about life. It's not just about the blessings you have, it's about being joyful about those blessings.

So Be Joyful my friends, as I will be when my package arrives and as I will be every time I look at that beautiful garland.

Especially Curious Sofa...Elizabethhouse (I sent my cousin in there the other day cuz she lives there and OH!She said it was great)and Shabby Miss Jenn (do you do digital scrapbooking??? and Target...vintage Halloween (I parted with mine to get a French Chandelier)So fortunate to stay at home and have to SAVE UP for slipcovers and such rather than CLOCK IN everyday :) Come see me.
