the creative desk


I am stopping by to wish you a wonderful Sunday. It is a few hours before the end of the weekend, a few hours before the beginning of a new week.

New Nib Ink Pen

Thankful for all of you wonderful souls out there.

Decided to decorate my rock, brought from Maui

Thankful for one more day alive.

New kid on the stamp collection block

Thankful for being able to create.

I think I'm going nuts ... I've spent the last four hours promoting on etsy ... what's that saying something like it's crazy to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect any results. I can't stop ... even though I have had zippo sales. Anyway....I feel you are my friend so I'm comfortable with writing to you like this. I love, love, love all of your new creations. I just don't make the time to create anymore.

Love always,
Jan

Thank YOU for all of your lovely posts! ♥

Francie M said...

A delicate brown butterfly. How lovely. Sometimes the introverted butterflies don't get noticed. But then again I suppose they have evolved such sutle shades because they don't want to be noticed!!

Ariel said...

the butterfly looks so pretty Ana and I love love that blue dragonfly on the previous post.

Your quote reminds me of the quote about insanity being a sane response to an insane world. :-)
