no pictures, just words...

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I have been doing so much art and design research lately, that on my way I have come across some really great quotes.
If you know me, I LOVE a good quote.
Take them to heart, hang them up in your bedroom or on your fridge.
Try to remember them.
Here are a couple of my favs:
(i apologize that I don't have credits for all of these quotes and thoughts. Just know they are not from me and inspired by other peeps)

"Do you expect others to be more than you could be? Do you want more from your spouse than you could ever give? Are you the friend your friends are to you? Do you set the bar higher than you yourself can jump?"
from one of my favorite bloggers.

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. this is to be my symphony."

also, be sure to check out the CHA Sneak Peek for Love, Elsie's Recipe Idea Box. She has images here on her blog at www.abeautifulmess.typepad.com
I was heavily involved in this project at work. And if I must say, The actual product is beautiful and incredibly inspiring for scrapbookers of all ages!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Okay, I can't stand it. I'll add a photo. Heres what I wish my house can look like someday:
