Happy Week, and possibly Trails

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! It’s rainy and yucky in Northern California, but that’s okay…I’ve finally gotten a chance to catch up on your blogs. It was a good sales week for me, I sold three prints on etsy:

I have a new project in the works, which I am very excited about. If you’ve purchased any of my prints you know that I include a special *gift.* I will be featuring them this week in my shop, finally! I sold out of them before they arrived on etsy…please stay tuned!

Oh and about the “Possibly trails”…..I feel as if I have overgrown wordpress. I love wordpress very much, but it’s not very practical when running a business. I am not able to post javascript, and that makes it difficult with etsy. I am not sure if I will just transfer everything over to typepad, but I have been thinking about making the move. For $4.95 a month, I can have peace of mind, security…and many more outlets for my blog. I don’t want to keep moving around, but with not being able to make this blog “my own” it’s a struggle. Please feel free to share your input if you’ve made the move over to typepad, or have any ideas. Hope the weekend is going well, and again thank you for being the best peeps I could ask for!

Hope everybody is enjoying their Tuesday! I have a few people I’d like to thank for their support this week. Thank you for linking my photos to your blog/etsy. I really appreciate it!!! To those of you who have found me from Ag Air, I am featuring the print they’ve linked to on etsy for purchase. Thank you for your support!

Strength

img_6278

You should never have to justify your own actions, or have to feel guilty for standing up for what you believe in. If people cared more about themselves than controlling others, you’d be amazed at what life can bring. Stay strong and never let anyone make you feel inferior, for they are the inferior ones for never seeing you.- Me

Dahlia Tuesday

Instead of picking and choosing quotes myself, I’ve decided to let you my faithful blog readers do the talking. Tonight’s first “you pick the quote” post is my bloggy friend, Jamie of PineappleLuv. I got to know Jamie on my previous blog when I did a post on different things I want to accomplish in my life. I’ve always wanted to become a better swimmer, and would like to eventually learn how to surf. She’s been an inspiration to me, and has a wonderful blog that I frequent often.

“What really matters is not just our own winning but helping other people to win, too.” Mr. Fred Rogers

“Really good surfers know that there’s always another wave…and you have to use good manners.” Eve Fletcher (81 yrs old and still surfing – she was featured as one of the surfers in the film, Surfing for Life

“When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God’s light shines upon you.” Ron Franz (played by Hal Holbrook – from the film, Into the Wild)

I Needed This

Last night, I was feeling sorry for myself over things that are beyond my control. I was lucky enough to have a good chat with my mom who put everything into perspective and not worry about people and things that I can’t change. I happened to hear this quote on David Letterman and it just stuck. It was exactly what I needed to hear…………………
