Golden Moments of Opportunity

    When I had to look for a quote that inspires me the most I found this one:

To improve the golden moment of opportunity and catch the good that is within our reach is the great art of life.   
Written by Samuel Johnson

I reread it whenever I have achieved something and must move on.   I like to look at life as art.  It is just a big blank canvas awaiting to be filled.  Mind you, when I was in college.......the blank paper intimidated and scared me immensely!!!!!  But, at this time in my life I realize that this could be  a great way to complete my canvas.  I am enjoying a Saturday morning puttering around my house and at the same time putting together materials to make some handmade greeting cards, drawing a floor plan for the store, filling in my calender and doing it all at a snail's pace.  I am taking pictures and sharing what I have been making at a blog party on May 21st.  The party is hosted by Vintage Bella Studio......oh, I hope you join us!!!!

I wouldn't miss seeing what you are planning for your store for the world. Matter of fact, if I'm not here on the 911! haha
(I'll be up north at my nephew's college graduation...I'll be with you in spirit)
Then, I'll be looking forward to hearing every word about your new shop. You have more guts girl...I love that trait about you. The word "NO" is never in your vocabulary and "failure" is NEVER an option.
I'm so excited for you...and may all of your dreams come true!!!
(dang, I wish I lived closer)
