WOW Wednesday and a Goodie



There is no doubt about it. I must be one of the worlds greatest procrastinators always leaving til tomorrow what could be done today. Much of this is born out of a fear of failure that I’m sure some of you will understand. Being the eldest of my siblings it was always my responsibility to ensure their safety when out playing and I found this stressful at the best of times, not least because my sisters were all crazy tear-aways with no fear at all LOL.

As I’ve got older that stress and fear spilled over into every day life preventing me from doing many things I dreamed of and I did indeed find myself ‘waiting’ for others to bring the flowers to me as a result of that fear.

Now I’m 50+ with grand children and my own business I’ve come to realise that fear can’t be allowed to stop you from trying and failure is only failure if you don’t give it a go.

I think this quote is perfect for reminding us to make our own joy in life rather then wait on others to bring it to us. Things may not go as planned but I’ve often found they’ve turned out the better for it.

I hope this quote inspires you. Feel free to use the quote in your own layouts and be sure to share your creations with us. We love to see what you’ve made.

As Promised

    What a beautiful freebie. I would love to win this wonderful kit. I’m drying the roses my husband had for me at the airport when I arrived home after being away for 27 days(Longest time in 20 years this Oct). He said never again will we be apart that long. How can I not record that story for my grandchildren to read?

    You got me Boo! Oh my. I really was going to exert will power and bypass Roses and Old Lace. After all, I have multitudes of beautiful kits that I have not yet used. Of course, I downloaded every goodie for that kit and then, well Want got its way.

    Now to dig and find photos worthy of this gorgeous kit.

    Thank you.
