SIMPLIFY

This morning I was sitting on the beach listing to the waves with my best
friend. We were bucket heads playing in the sand, answering to no one watching
as the water crept up with each wave getting closer and closer to our toes. And
With a the sound of a loud blast I dropped my sand shovel and .........I woke up.
It was my alarm clock waking me from my dream. A very simple dream of a simple day, one I hope I have over and over again.







I made this 3 tier picture frame this summer for my bathroom as a reminder to slow down and enjoy each day!



SIMPLIFY, this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue. I long to throw my phone away that connects me to the world, to dis-connect the TV, big brother, reality shows, to hang a sign on my door that reads: Gone Beaching...
To simplify means going without the things that clutter our lives and keep us busier than we want to be. Can I? I want too, it's a struggle, maybe I will try it for a week, maybe two and then who knows? Do you Dream of Simplifying?



This is one of my POP items that I just listed in my ETSY Shop this weekend.
It fit the theme so I thought I would share it as well.
POP stands for Pendants, Oddities and Possibilities.

You can also POP over to Inspiration Avenue for to see some awesome submissions by
some very talented artists. Go..and take a look..just roll over this title and you are there!

  16. Thanks for this "simplify" message. It is the mantra of my life. It is the thing the cheerleader in me yells to myself from the sidelines... something I have to constantly chant.

    Thanks for your sweet note on my blog. Your comment made my day and also encourages me to keep on blogging.

    Have a great week!!!
