Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?

Have you ever looked fear in the face and said 'I just don't care'?

While I was trying to be inspired to create something the other night, I was listening to Glitter in the Air by P!nk.  Now there's a lady who can really write a song and sing it!  Anyhow the top lines are what inspired me.  I decided I wanted to play with glitter.  I had hoped to enter it in the last Play Date Cafe challenge but I just didn't have enough time to post it.  

The black glitter is a strong contrast to the turquoise and encouraging sentiments.  But that kind of represents all the mixed feelings I'm having with all the recent major changes in my life.  Without struggles I can't become stronger.  And I am so thankful to have a very loving and  supportive family surrounding me.  I also have the most amazing friends.  The ones like you who read my babble and remind me to keep my chin up.  The friends who call me to encourage me and listen to me.  My husband and I are just amazed by the amount of support we have found in our friends.

I was going to create something tonight but I think I'm just going to go to bed and get lost in a book.  What's on your reading list this summer?


  1. Wow, what a perfect song to listen too. I actually thought you had thrown glitter in the air-that would be a beautiful sight but then I was thinking-why would she do that when she's trying to sell her house? But now I understand. Your card is lovely, and I admire how you were able to make the two sentiments work so well together. Here's to hoping things pick up for you, and if you ever need to, drop me a line.

  2. You are going to be sparkling in the sunshine after using all that glitter, Laurel :D Gorgeous image and love the contrast of the colours.

    I just started reading the Outlander series (by Diana G something I think) and just LOVE it! Only on book one and am having a hard time putting it down. Loved Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth (sequel wasn't as good but not bad) and enjoyed his other books too. Wilbur Smith is always a fave of mine as is Robert Ludlum (mystery suspense) Read through the Wideacre triology by Phillipa Gregory as well as The Other Boelyn Girl(sp??)and enjoyed them. Succumbed to the Twilight series last Christmas and was surprised by how much I enjoyed them. If you've got any good reads, let me know. I'm always on the lookout, though my night table has a big pile on it right now because I just don't get enough time tor read, but summers are better :D

    Hang in there! One day at a time (((hugs)))

  3. Your glitter is golden =) Such a pretty lesson in contrasts!

    I finished The Book of Negroes a few months ago and just finished The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner online (free!) last week. I've been reading some suspense lately and enjoying reading as an alternative to stuyding!
