Thank you so much for all your work on these, Kimber!
What wonderful inspiration for all the ladies that have that Beautiful Kit in their possession!
I have been writing all my blog posts on Monday - and I think I am loosing a bit of the inspirational side that I like to hold onto.
When you sit down and have 5 posts to do, including specials - etc. it is hard to get into the right frame of mind!
I have my earphones on, listening to all the sweet music and lyrics - just to get me geared up to pass on a thought, or a quote that might touch someone's life.
Nothing brings me more pleasure than getting an email that tells a tale of hopelessness turned to hope after being inspired.
Those are the most brilliant moments in my day.
If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing....
It is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that
tugs at your heart
that's your inspiration
something that's your dream
life happens.
live it.

Monday with Gina. Sweet Goodbyes. Sweet Outlooks.

Gina has spent a lovely month with my Design Team.
She took my stamps and made them come alive brilliantly.
It has been a fun welcoming her to the Unity family for the month of June.
She used the new INCENTIVE kit and the June Kit of the Month from Unity to create this lovely infant layout for today's featured project.
One of my FAVORITE quotes ever: Everyday holds the possibility of a MIRACLE.
That's the truth!
Beautiful Layout in FULL view.

This adorable baby gift was made with the June Kit of the Month as well.

Be sure to take a peek at Gina's Blog.
She has more Unity Inspiration to share with you!
How was your weekend?
Mine was nothing short of wonderful.
I even feel slightly distracted today thinking about how FABULOUS and Exciting life has the potential to be.
simple times
simple gestures
sweet smiles
simple laughs
From the minute the weekend started to the moment it ended small things happened to change my daily outlook.
I love deliberating the possibility that really every single day DOES hold the possibility of a miracle - and if no HUGE miracle takes place - at the very least every single day leads you in a new, curious, exciting direction toward living and experiencing life to the fullest.
Huge thanks to the people in my life - for adding to that experience.
With a little help from friends....life it good! Right?!
Enjoy your Monday.
Need to re-direct my distraction and get busy!

Here are some THOUGHTS to ponder...

Times of great calamity and confusion have been productive for the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace. The brightest thunder-bolt is elicited from the darkest storm.
Charles Colton
{I would have to AGREE!}

"The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher."
Thomas Huxley
This one is SO OUT OF CONTEXT for me - But I thought it was FUNNY!
Every plant knows this:
It’s only when you get crap thrown on you that you really start to grow.

DT Tuesday! It's Buckie, Baby! LOVE this girl!

Jen Buck! Jen Buck! Jen Buck!
How fun is it that when Gus was going to CHA California, Jen Buck was in the Minneapolis airport - for her layover heading to CHA as well to meet us.
Gus saw her in the airport and shouted - JEN BUCK! JEN BUCK! JEN BUCK!
They boarded the SAME PLANE - Jen in First Class - Gus in Coach.
She was so sweet and sent him a couple drinks during the flight.
Jen Buck. She is the BEST!
Check out her STELLAR Projects - Although she never does anything LESS than STELLAR!

LOVE this mini book using Everyday Adorable -
Key 2 my Heart.

You can NEVER have enough ICE CREAM Stamps!
June Kit of the Month.

LOVE this STAMP by Tanis Giesbrecht.
From the June Kit of the Month.
You will be SO VERY Happy you did!
Some Random Rambling.

There is a song out by Katy Perry.
I love this line.
"Your like an indian summer in the middle of winter.... "
Stamp worthy for sure.
I wish I had ONE SMALL bit of musical talent so I could write songs.
Wouldn't that be a blast?
Maybe some guitar lessons are in my future?
It would be reaching our of my comfort zone, but it would be fun!
However I can't sing to save my soul.
I was onced asked the question -
If you could PICK ONE TALENT which one would it be?
ANYTHING - What would it be?
That's a hard one!
What would you pick?
"Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
W. Clement Stone.

Wow - the month FLEW by.
I looked at my little calendar icon last night and went into a panic.
I am ANTI-FALL right now - so the days just need to SLOW DOWN.
Summertime Please Stay!
It has been a TON of fun having Michelle Woerner on the Unity Design Team this month.
She is a sweet addition to the team.
THANK YOU so very much, Michelle.
I thought it was so sweet that Michelle wanted to share a few "random facts" about herself today.
I love these sort of peeks into people.

Friday. Sunshine. Love Summer.

Unity Inspiration.
Unity Sales.
Life could not be better!

It's getting THICK!

I love it!

I wanted to honor my parents with these pages.
I have their wedding tear out from the paper.
I have sewn it in plastic.
Forever Kept as is.

They were only 18 and 19 years old.
41 years later - still together.

I started in on cutting and pasting and sewing - it got a little carried away.
But I just kept taking the initiative to make it work - and in the end it did!
I made it work.
That is what I love about creativity.
It can be ANYTHING YOU want it to be!

I read this quote EARLY on in my parenting years.
It REALLY made me think.
I am so thankful I took it to heart.
It is so true.
So many ORDINARY days in our life that COULD go unappreciated.
We pay attention to the BIRTHS, the MARRIAGES, the SPECIAL EVENTS - yet sometimes we don't stop to take a moment to see what it going on around us and value the ordinary.
THIS QUOTE - helps me do that.
I WILL want the ordinary days back - just for a moment.
The days that ALL my children surrounded me.
The days of our youth.
The days of Brilliant Stuggle to build a business.
The days that we all just sat in silence. Together.
Do yourself a quick little favor.
Read the quote.
Enjoy the ordinary.

This pictures resonates an ordinary day, yet is priceless to me.
Absolutely PRICELESS.
Never again that young.
Yet CAUGHT forever in time.
