But before we get started, I want to share with you this photo I took the other morning. I was up early and my little girl, Ella, said "Moon, Mommy! Moon!" and she pointed out the window. I looked, and sure enough, saw a sliver of moon way up high above the treetops. I raced for my camera and . . .
It was a beautiful moment, one of the times that I call a gift. Just a simple moment in time, holding my daughter's hand and looking at the moon through her wide eyes.
I tell you this because my life feels a little out-of-balance right now since I lost my consulting job. I find myself at a crossroads. Do I go back to work full-time, (I am interviewing this week for a DREAM JOB) or do I stay at home and consult (those jobs are hard to come by) or do I really concentrate on the blog and sponsorships as a primary income?
As far as the latter is concerned, I want to say thanks to a few people, including the ladies at Three Sisterz, Tracie at Cleverly Inspired, and Marian at Miss Mustard Seed. I have been asking questions and soliciting feedback like crazy and these women have been very helpful. THANKS!
In the end, that moment and that photograph really helped me to clear my mind, prioritize, look up, and B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Does that mean I have come to a conclusion? Heck no, but it's a great photo, right?
Let's get back to the party and talk about my faves from last week. Here's a FABULOUS Card Wallet Tutorial from Katie over at Eye Spy DIY. The fabric is so adorable, and the step-by-step instructions are great. I may be trying this one!
I have to make these cute Upcycled Organizers from Yesterday on Tuesday. I think the one that is made with sweater material is my favorite! Malia's photography is gorgeous, too.
But my fave from last week? Just out of sheer madness? The choice is clear, these Faux Metal Wall Art pieces from Suzy's Artsy Crafty Sitcom are the winner. Why do you ask? Sure they are beautiful, but wait until you read the tutorial and find out that these are made from TOILET PAPER TUBES!
Seriously. That Suzy. I think she might be a little nuts. She is also pretty new to my party, so I am excited to have such a talent joining us!
