Frizzled Messy Book

How about a little inspiration to get your inner warm fuzzies going? I have crafted my very own pick-me-up out of crazy items found around the house. These are the individual pages which will be bound up by ribbons in the near future. Enjoy!

Nature is the art of God.

Our life is frittered away by detail...SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY.

PICT0002

WHO IS RICH? He who rejoices in his portion.

PICT0003

Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life.

PICT0004

All life is an experiment.

PICT0005

WHAT IS LIFE? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow that runs across the grass & loses itself in the sunset.

PICT0006

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

PICT0012

May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, & peace in your heart.

PICT0011

Write it on your heart that EVERYDAY is the best day of the year.

PICT0013

The world belongs to the enthusiastic.

WANT TO MAKE YOUR OWN?!

Go ahead...grad some cardstock, inspirational transparencies, glitter, mini closepins, safety pins, colorful paperclips, buttons, ribbons, magazine scraps, frilly fru-fru beaded fringe, colorful wire and beads, raffia, stickers, articles, newspaper clippings, leaves, shells, paper sacks, cheese cloth, aluminum foil, wax paper, white out pens, feathers, sticks - flowers - and leaves from outside, tie-dyed paper towels.. and your creative brain.

Get to rearin' tearin' and having fun. There are no rules here. Well..there is just one...HAVE A BALL!

Oh. And about the tie-dyed paper towels...you can do this easy peasy. You know that box of paaz egg dye that didn't get used this Easter? Set it up. Crinkle, twist, fold, swirl, & dip your paper towels into the colors and pull out a masterpiece. Let dry first before crafting. Grab your kids & get to it!
