The little things

In my last video I said I re-potted my Bonsai tree.  Here he is before the repot he has a much larger home now and is really happy!

I've had some time over the past few days to journal..

I adore how the colours came out on this one - and even the girl's funky blue hair!  I ended up painting the flowers hot pink after this was taken but this is to gives you the idea...

Years ago I fell in love with this idea, 

"The Secret to Life..... 
All you have to do is be happy.
Do you know how to do that?
Just be happy!"

This paper was in my window for years.  I decided to put it into the journal.  Funny enough the dog was not originally in this piece.  

While I was working out I peaked over to see it and there he was!  After I finished the mass sweat (yes I'm still doing Jillian Michaels cardio) I had to add him in.
Silly Google flipped the picture again...

Then I was searching the internet for a perfect quote to add to this page as it had so much extra space and I came across Donna Downey's upcoming art class and it had this quote on it... "Always believe something wonderful is about to happen."  I loved it so much I had to score it!  I've added it here and onto another project I may share later but for now here's the journal page.

It was still empty so then I added the little Book of Life... this was so fun!

I must say I think we will look back at life someday and realize it is all about the little things and how happy they make us feel.  As you know by now all you have to do is be happy!  LOL

Thanks for dropping in!


PS.  I got a kick out of a Napoleon Hill video I was watching while making this art.  He said to take 5 minutes every morning and have a good belly laugh.  He said something along the lines of "be sure you aren't in the company of others" as you do this!  LOL 

PPS.  May you have a good belly laugh today!

You have a forest in your house! But, your bonsai does look great and so does your book! Excellent! Love the quotes!

I've had some bonsais but they don't fare so well here and usually wind up dying. Yours looks great. Nice journaling. I especially like that little book of life. Have a greaat day. Tammy
