Simple Pleasures: Possibilities

A new day filled with possibilities.

Spray painted cans waiting to be decorated.

Plastic rings waiting to be turned into Dorset buttons.

Little notebooks waiting to be altered, inspired by Jan's gift to me.

Yarn from a friend waiting to be turned into something wearable or usable.

New things to try.

You are full of wonderful possibilities. Do something with them. The most painful regrets, those which never go away, are regrets of things not done, things never attempted. ~ Ralph Marston

Tammy,
You have such a creative and calming spirit about you! I wish I could capture some of that creative energy that you exude...I also wish I could have some of your calming spirit ;-) Looking forward to seeing what you will create with all of those goodies!!!

I love this post! What a wonderful boost to a creative spirit that tends to get all caught up in the busy-ness of life {raising three boys and a husband} ♥ This blessed me.

I always love to think about the possibilities each new day holds for us. What a sense of freedom it is to be able to choose what we want to do on a given day. It looks like your day holds lots of interesting possibilities.
The quote you chose is just the perfect ending to an already inspiring post.

Heather said...

Looks like you have a creative and fun day planned. Enjoy all your projects and have a wonderful day. :-)

Hi chicky! I see you have lots to keep you busy for a while. I have decided that next year everyone gets a home made gift instead of a store bought one... I need to get started. I was thinking pillows or blankets for all. We shall see what I come up with.
love ya!

....things never attempted. I think of that as I start on a new project and hope for God's blessing as I work on it.

gail said...

Hi Tammy....I have to say, I am enjoying this down time. It's been a rat race lately with the new baby and death of my daughter's mother in law, then the holidays.....so to have absolutely nothing to do is heaven. and of course there is always something to do!(like blog visiting). it looks like you have some fun projects in the works-post some pics when you are done!
hugs,
gail

Dearest Tammy,

Those buttons are real simple pleasures; very impressive!
Oh, so many opportunities are awaiting us but it's the TIME that is lacking for carrying them all out...
Enjoy this happy ending of 2010!

Dear Tammy ... I'm always glad to see you at the Simple Pleasures party. This post really moved me. The simpleness and beauty of possibilities is something I'd never given much thought. Thanks for this gentle reminder.
