My newest truth card


So I would like to share my newest truth card with you. What is a truth card? Well it's a little (4x6) reminder to myself that I put into an album. I have made a few now and this is a great way for me to create when I don't have a lot of time.

These boots were my mom's. She purchased them a few months before she passed. They remind me of her and I wear them every day. I was having a hard time the other day with some personal struggles and I came across this quote - Every path has it's puddles. And so there it is.... a truth card to remind myself that even though I am on this new journey I am going to hit some moments that challenge me. So instead of dwelling on it I thought to myself - just put on moms boots and jump in and enjoy the puddle and then keep on trucking!

I did take my inspiration from Curly Girl Designs.

Have a great night!

Trust Your Journey

I had bought this yard sale painting in hopes to paint the frame and sand down the painting to make a chalkboard. Then in January I started the Brave Girls Club 'The Walk' online course and knew exactly what I had to do with this painting. The path reminded me so much of my journey and this inspiration from Coming home to Roost was exactly what I needed to complete this project.

A little paint and voila! I did paint the frame with some watered down white paint to freshen it up a bit. I was going to try to fix the frame as some of the corners were missing but I thought that it represented my journey. Not perfect. But still beautiful.

Here is the before:

 And the after:
