Monday’s Motivation

I thought I’d share this lovely letter with you this Monday.  I can very quickly get on a soap box about the teaching profession.   How they’re not paid enough, appreciated enough, treated well enough……  A good teacher is a treasure and will impact his/her students for life.

My daughter who is a grade school counselor posted this letter on facebook this week and I just thought it was AMAZING!!  Every child should hear this message until they understand and believe it for themselves.  In our own way we can share this message with the little ones in our lives.

The core of the message can apply to everyone.  No one is excellent at everything.  NO ONE!!  We often look at what someone else has accomplished or how we compare to them …… don’t do it!!  You are good at what you’re good at and likewise, they are good at what they are good at.  Embrace what you love and what you’re good at and be happy for others because of what they excel at.

Have a GREAT week lovin what you do and being the best you can be!



Thanks for visiting!

What are you waiting for!!  :-)  Sometimes it takes climbing a mountain to get to a great place.  Sometimes large and sometimes small – but just think, what could be on the other side!!

Do you have a mountain you need to scale?  Don’t put it off, go for it!!  You can do it!  Climbing with you this week!!  :-)

moments in life 4-12-15

Having lost 2 family members in the last couple weeks has made me really think about time.  The time I spend with loved ones, the time that slips by that could or should have been spent reaching out, things in life that fritter away time that could be used more wisely ……

How do we squeeze more out of a day??  I don’t really think it’s squeezing more out of the day, it’s being mindful of what’s really important to us and not letting those time wasters keep us from living our priorities.  People are what matter – stay in touch, take advantage of those chance meetings to connect, create moments to invest time and energy in the lives of our family, friends and neighbors.  We need to care for each other and stay connected, our world and lives will be much better for it.

March Mini Quilt
#stqminisquiltalong

The March winners are: Eva Duchateau and Julie Anderson.  Congratulations girls!!  They’ve won  a coupon for a free mini kit of their choice!

It’s so fun seeing the different versions of the same pattern over on Instagram!  Go visit and take a look.

April’s mini is “Round & Round” by Thimbleblossoms.  Hope you’ll join in on the fun!!  Click HERE if you need all the details for the Quilt Along.

We have two examples of the Round & Round quilt.  The smaller of the two is the actual pattern size (11″ x 11″).  The original pattern is a grid using 1.5″ squares and half-square triangles.  For the larger I used 2″ – just a bit larger pieces, which resulted in a  17″ square quilt.  I LOVE them both!  Kits are available for both HERE.

I had fun playing around with these quilts this month during their photo shot.  I used the aqua version in my Easter mantel decorations.  The “wreath” of friendship stars are so cute for accenting décor on a table.

 I hope you’re having fun using your quilts.  Because of their size they are soooo versatile!  I love moving them around and using them in different ways.
