there’s a light at the end of the tunnel
i’ve been clearing the clutter away
it’s been such a painful experience
because the clutter wants to stay..
but this disease has got to go
it has been with me far too long
so it is time for clutter bug and i
to find something new to do
i already feel the freedom
and seeing a little light
as i say goodbye to clutter bug
because i want clutter out of my sight..
at your own pace
please do not hurry
i hope for you to stay
as long as possible
if i had it my way…

Nothing like a walk to clear the mind..
make each day count
in some little way
leave yesterday behind
for this is a new day
don’t dwell on the negatives
for it won’t feed your soul
only zap you of energy
and down you will go
so look up today
from where your help comes
and be filled with the love
and the peace of the Son..
After visiting the blog, Alice and Molly, I was inspired to tackle a small creative project. I am one to buy fabric and have good intentions, but I lose my enthusiasm easily. This seemed to be simple enough and I had fabric that I thought would work well together. Here is my completed pennant banner.
I think that the bobbin on my sewing machine is not threaded right and it was affecting my sewing, so I went with sewing by hand. I know what I would do differently next time.
While working on this I kept whistling the song, His Banner Over Me.. I bet you didn’t know that I like to whistle..Lol!
She is a sweety!
Thank you Grace for the inspiration!
Creation is my inspiration
This is my response for the Daily Post weekly challenge of Inspiration….
My kind of place
Linking to the door challenge here..
Maybe you can tell me what my muse is?
This is several years old. I like charming old towns.
I would say life on earth and all of the neat, wonderful, quirky, fascinating things we get to see and experience each day.

A little flower power for all of you today.. As I searched my files I had a few ideas and was looking for something to jump out at me. I settled for the bouquet of Carnations that were in the guest bedroom. I love playing with the processing and really like when I get that vintage look. As we approach the change of year, I am pondering and thinking of what is important to me for this new year. For a starter I want to be in the moment and not think I need stuff to keep me full and happy. I want to wake up each morning and say “thank you,” for a new day to experience, to see, to listen, to be still, to learn things I haven’t learned yet, and to hear clearly the words.. this is the way.. May the New Year bring peaceful experiences and contentment and much more to this world. A Happy and Blessed New Year to you, my friends!

Awestruck! Having been a former California resident, I am really liking the vibrant colors that Fall has brought to Oregon. Today I am linking to Kim’s Tuesday Texture. I so look forward to it each week.
This morning, I thank the mystery person that left me a note to write, write, write! Thank you for that reminder!
So, it brings me to that place of thinking of all the reasons and excuses I have to not write. I think that what I have best to offer is to go with my original idea of writing from my heart. It is where all of me is stored up in files, life experiences, the failures, the successes, the doubts, the highs and lows, faith, fears and more. Observing these petals this morning made me think about how my life is falling into place after a major move, just over six months ago. I often have to combat fear of not having the potential. In my day-to-day existence I strive for low key…peaceful days. I really like simplicity, and therefore have been trying to not jump to quickly for finding things to keep me busy. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities that one can commit to in our area. I am careful to not overextend myself and being prayerful about this helps to keep me in order. The following is a little artsy endeavor I am working on. The last collage I did was in 2012. It was a first time experience for me. It was simple and fun. Kind of childlike but it brought something out in me, that maybe I actually missed out on during my childhood.
I am not finished..
I like this!

Each day, truly is a gift. It may not feel like it, or look like it, but there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel, if you wake up and and start your day on the sunny-side up.
