frittered...


well, I have to confess that I've been feeling convicted by this saying since I received the new Artistic Outpost plate 'Old Grist Mill'. I have every kind of overload and I know I'm not the only one. There's too much required of us these days...juggling too many plates, hats, or balls. How about you? Any of you agree with me? Can you gift me with words of wisdom to get back to that sweet place of an ordered life? I probably have any book you might suggest...I'll willingly try again if you really found it successful for you!!! I know I would much rather spent my precious moments with my loved ones than scrubbing my bathrooms...

So in keeping with the wonderful message, I've kept my card simple today...stamping the gristmill directly onto GP white cs with Memento Tuxedo Black. I used Memento Summer Sky on the simplify, simplify. And for the 365 Card Blog challenge today to use a label on your card, the dynamo label maker seemed the perfect tool.

I will look forward to hearing what has worked for you...one of the blessings of this world wide web is all the connections we can make!

Don't forget to check out the 3 new releases at Artistic Outpost...they have a special going on if you buy all three, you get 20% off until September 15th.

I love this card...the simplicity and the statement that it makes. I have a plaque in my living room to remind me: Simplify. Live simply, live well.

I love the simplicity of this card, Susan. I don't know how you do it... simple and stunning in one go, but you have this knack for constantly amazing and challenging me. :D Don't stop...

As for the juggling... whoo, I hear you! I wish I had more time and energy... Unlike Amy, I cannot function on 5 hours' sleep (not for any sustainable period of time, any way). It's a struggle for sure to find the time for the work, the family, the hobbies that keep us sane... Hang in there, sister! ;-)

Gosh Susan - I wish I did have the answer - I can only seem to slow down for short periods - then life speeds up again! Love this simplistic card with it's powerful message!
