Quotes anyone?

I changed my website around and I seem to have lost a large portion of readers here at this blog. I know spring break has something to do with it, but I'm starting to wonder if I ought to just combine this with my scrap blog?

What do you think?



Comment here on the blog or send me an email at kt@scrapbooklady.org


I'm going to give it a few days so I will post again on Monday April 17th.


Happy Easter everyone!

Happiness is like a kiss

I'm a lucky Mom! This is a picture of my sweet Alex giving me a sloppy kiss when he was only 5 years old.


Spread some happiness today!

You really can't change the weather (or a lot of other things in life) so you might as well make the most of them!

Daffodils are my favorite for a reason



picture was a gift from a newsletter subscriber a few years ago. :) quote is from my spring quote pack.

Daffodils are my very favorite flower. I've always loved their cheery yellow color, but they cemented their status as my all time favorite after I read this:


The Daffodil Principle


This has been spread around the internet for years and then was finaly published into a beautiful book. A friend of mine gave it to me for my birthday a few years back and it is still one of my all time favorite gifts.



You can find this book on amazon

You can apply this amazing principle to anything. In fact, we have a term we use in our house when things get overwhelming... just "daffodil it!"

Quotes and Scrapbooking

I hope you all had a chance to look through my new website at www.scrapbooklady.org and read the article I wrote about Scrapbooking with Quotes.

I'm happy to say that my new quote packs are selling well and I've had some great feedback about them. So far the best seller is the Great Women pack, but they are all doing well.


I'm taking tomorrow off from blogging. I've spent soooooo much time at the computer this week that I've let other things fall by the wayside. So I will still fill orders, but now blog entries here or on the Scrapbooking blog on Sunday April 9th.


So I thought it would be fun to share a quote today about taking time off and getting refreshed.

“Rest when you're weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.”

Ralph Marston



Here's to a restful weekend!

Think Big

I like Donald Trump. I know he has his faults, but you have got to admire what the guy has accomplished.

Today's motivation comes from THE Donald himself...

"As long as you're going to be thinking anyway, think big."

- Donald Trump


Along this line of thinking, I highly recommend this book:

The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz

Tagline for the book: SET YOUR GOALS HIGH...THEN EXCEED THEM

Good thought. I have high goals, now I just need to exceed them.

Eat your vegetables

Broccoli

Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

~Doug Larson


If they smelled and tasted like cookies, I'd be in great shape!

After I finish my web site re-design project, I'm going to start a new art journal about taking care of my health. There will be a lot of quotes in it for motivation.

Here's some motivation to inspire us all to eat our veggies:

Dole 5 a day

How to eat more vegetables and fruit


Pyramid tips


Carrots

The wisdom of Yoda

Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.
-- Yoda



Ah, the wisdom of Yoda... seems like a good start to the day today.

You can waste a lot of your life just thinking about whether or not you should try something. The successful people just do it.

Take action.

Daylight Savings

Don't forget it's daylight savings time. You spring forward, then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.
- David Letterman


The whole daylight savings thing seems like a good idea in the fall, but I'm sitting here at 11:18 p.m. on a spring night thinking it is a terrible idea! My body is sure it is only 10:18 p.m. and thus it is not at all ready to go to bed. But when the alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow - there will be no mercy!

Really...I wish we could just let nature take it's course on this and leave the clocks alone.



I've got some good stuff coming to the quote blog in the next week or so....stay tuned!

no minor blunder

A clever man commits no minor blunders.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



I was working on redesigning my entire website yesterday and I got to cleaning up some old email addresses that I don't use anymore. I was being charged an extra $2.00 a month to have the no longer useful email accounts so I decided to delete them and save myself a few bucks. I got a little toooooo zealous with the delete button and I accidentally got rid of my main email account!

Throw Computer

I was able to set up the same email account again - but all my saved messages were lost! I had a folder just for quotes that probably had 200 messages saved in it!

Well, I guess I have a clean slate to start with!

Don't worry though... I still have oodles of ideas for quotes to share here. Just wish I had not relied on the e-mail filing system so heavily.


So if I am to believe today's quote, I must be VERY clever!
