Sunday, The Most Peaceful Day of the Week....or IS IT?

Good Morning, Everyone!

I'm joking, of course Sunday is the most peaceful day of the week. Unless you are trying to get a bunch of under 10 year olds ready for church. Or trying to juggle final prep for your car wash fund raiser. Or trying to write out your grocery list for the week or even your menu prep for the week.

In short, we are all super busy people.

Whether you still have little ones at home or just bigger kids that now have kids of their own, you know what I mean. Each day is filled with stuff that you need to do, should be doing, and WILL do all in good time.

The thing that is missing from this very busy equation is "Me Time."  I know a lot of us do not fully grasp that concept but believe me, it is one our kids and their kids have down pat. We could take a page from their book, or maybe even a few paragraphs!

You have all probably heard or read many bible verses about being 'filled with the spirit.' One of my favorites is Galatians 5:16 which says, "this I say then, walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." I like this scripture because it reminds us to get out of our own heads and not think about ourselves so much in terms of what is wrong in our lives.

On the other hand, it is hard to "walk in the Spirit" if we are continually draining our resources. So it is important for us to refresh ourselves so we are able to, in turn, help others.

A simple example of this is to take some "me time" once in a while. Some people call it their daily "power hour" some people call it "date night" but whatever you call it,  you need to DO it. Just start marking it in your very busy calendar...you know you already have a planner or something similar like a "to-do" list. Put YOURSELF in there because YOU are important. Without the Captain of the ship, the ship will soon be in chaos. YOU are the Captain and unless you are at top form things will go awry. Be nice to yourself and get that "me time" in there.

For me, something I love to do is read. I can even read and re-read favorite books. I seem to lose myself in reading. Maybe my imagination is so odd that I have vivid re-creations of the stories I read, but either way it is a good thing. Another great and healthy outlet is creating new cards and hand crafted goodies. Even on the days when I don't have  a lot of extra energy I can sit down and make some gift tags or designs a new card. The designing part is a whole lot of fun for me so I make sure I give myself the time and space to do that at least once a week. Sure I make a mess but that is also fun!

So don't forget to regularly "re-fill" your own spirit so you can continue to fill and nourish your own flock at home!

I am in the final stages of putting together my Dragonfly Dreams online card class if there are any more who are interested. Let me know and I can send you a PayPal invoice, that is how you would sign up. The price is basically just the retail cost of the stamp set and any stamp pads or watercolor pencils that are included and embellishments along with shipping and tax. I do not charge for the paper products I give you to make the six cards or their envelopes, that is my gift to you! The class includes all materials needed to make six super cute cards featuring this wonderful stamp set. You will need your own scissors, adhesive, and that's about it! I include the paper supplies to make six cards and their envelopes but you can re-create the card with your own supplies later to make an unlimited amount of cards. The class includes access to my video tutorial that is only available to my team members and the people who joined the class.

Here is a picture in case you missed it on the group page:
The pictures just shows the basic colors and card stock you will get, the finished product is not shown. I like to keep some things as a surprise!! Please comment below if you have any questions or do not hesitate to text me at 951-973-3270 and I will get back to you with an answer as soon as possible. I will be closing out this class in the next few days or sooner if it gets to maximum capacity before that.

Ok you guys, I hope you have a fantastic Sunday because I plan to. Talk to you all later!!
