make time

I love to write hand written notes and mail them snail mail.  I especially love to write thank you notes.  It is therapeutic for me to remember all that I am thankful for.  Sometimes I even write thank you notes for gifts you cannot physically hold, such as friendships, relationships, the act of caring, etc. Recently came across an awesome list of things to make time for in a blog.  It is a nice reminder.

Is it REALLY strange?

Or is it new? exciting? different than you have heard of or experienced before? Open your heart, let yourself be consumed with creativity, and experience life.  People have similarities and people have differences; we are all unique and that is okay.  I love this print by StoryPeople.  It captures this idea wonderfully.

Creative parents

A friend shared this awesome blog entry with me.  It displays so much creativity!  Some parents created "Dinovember" for their kids, convincing them that the toy dinosaurs came to life when the kids went to sleep.  The parents wrote that they do this to keep the children's imaginations in a world full of technology, and to give them a sense of mystery.

Natalia Rak

My hubby came across this wonderful mural last night and I wanted to look it up.  I believe her blog is in Polish, but you can still check out the visuals of "the legend of giants" by Natalia Rak.
