I am really big on loving yourself & the skin you are in.
I myself suffer from overconfidence due to a boss once who gave me a review and said I did not need to improve anything. I took that to heart and in general try not to beat myself up too badly. THE MAN tries to give me feedback but again, I am perfect! No point in trying to tell me otherwise!
Actually I am kidding a whole lot. Mostly I get mad at my hair and sometimes I like to switch that up and get grumpy about dark circles under my eyes and then I can hate on my eyebrows...and when that gets old, I can always loathe my tummy stretch marks on skin that gave up being happy by the second kid. Don't get me started on potential personality flaws....
That is why we all need something to tell US how lovely we are! Here is a shout out from ME on Hump Day saying YOU ARE LOVELY!
Need me to say that again? I can.....
Zoomed in photo! So you can READ IT! YOU ARE LOVELY!
One more time, sideways so you can also see the little nesting bird hanging out in my locket...
And do you know who is lovely in particular? Three girls.
The first two are:
Lisa (QUIRKS) & Sue (ONION) who are my partners in crime for these treats! We have only one more challenge for our Technicolor Trio of Temping Treats left to make! They are super duper lovely chickies!
Here are our requirements this week that I ran with in a very loosey goosie kind of way.
- Drips and drops to make a design.
- Configuration of Frames-assortment in any design or layout.
To be honest, I read the first requirement, ripped this scrabble board in half, covered it in with paper and started gluing...
Framed things out and glued some more. Added lots and lots of runny mists and what not, which did not really give me a pattern but made me really happy in a grungy misty kind of way. See the layers upon layers?
I then went back and reread our requirements and realized I had to dig up some inchies. Used some queenly images that I slid behind a clear faceted tile I have had in my stash for years. Tied ribbon on the edges.
The other person who is especially lovely is the lady who has the awesomest store on the block! Linda over at THE FUNKIE JUNKIE BOTIQUE just reopened and I got those awesome flowers there! She is my personal shopper since I pretty much like EVERYTHING in her store and really just go through and say one of these and one of these with no plan. Everything comes wrapped so nicely with pretty little ribbons and clear envelopes.
So, three awesome links to check out on this very lovely of Wednesdays!
YOU ARE LOVELY! And so is the birthday girl who will be receiving this in the mail soon along with some chocolates!
