happy happy me

I've learned something about myself over the last few months. In order for me to be truly happy, I must have three things in my life.

1. My Family
2. Something fun to look forward to
3. Art

There is a fourth small variable of having a clean house, but I am working to let that one go a little. Life is too short to be cleaning all the time.

If I've got the three big ones goin on, I'm as happy as a clam and last weekend I hit all three spot on. I had the girls in my family over for a big fun day of art. We broke out all our fun papers and paint and made a huge mess in my kitchen. We cut and ripped and pasted. We all love art so much that at some point each of us actually squealed with excitement. The boy sat at the counter with his own paints and I was almost overcome with all the creativity in the room.

I loved the way my little prince bird turned out. I think I will hang him in my kitchen.

Just a note regarding Friday's giveaway. In order to be entered into the drawing, you must post the Suaviloquy graphic on you site with a link. Please leave address to the blog where you have posted. Thanks.

Don't dismiss the power of a clean house--that allows for the joy found in the other three. I enjoy my family more when I have a clean house . . . I look forward to things more when cleaning the house is behind me . . . I feel more creative when I'm not burdened by needing to clean house and I have wide open spaces. I'm convinced that there is a trick to making it easy and one day I will find it.

I jealous of the weekend. Looks like it was fun and productive--your bird is lovely.

I am a person who needs something to look forward to as well.
I posted your logo and a link on my blog: Two Kayaks.
I also submitted the giveaway to LFCA, so you may get some more visitors tomorrow. :)

Thanks so much for the super fun day. I loved spending time with you and mom with nothing to do but create!! All the usual distractions (my kids) were gone, and it was a lovely afternoon. I'm so pleased with my collage and you know I love your darling bird! ox.

It took me forever to figure out how to post the pic and I wasn't even thinking. Now the link works! Thanks.
