What a Flower

Just a little tag today, the first project from my new studio. Yipee! It's a bit crowed, but it is fun to be reunited with my stash. Oh how I missed it while it was  in storage during our move. I used some wonderful paper flowers that I won awhile back  from BlissHabits . It was an amazing surprise, you could choose from a number of etsy sites, what a fabulous prize.  Jingle told me all about it, thank you so much! So, BlissHabits  is an incredible site where they explore the 13 habits to help achieve bliss. Now who doesn't need that! Here's what the site is about....

"The Bliss Habits experiment is based loosely on Ben Franklin’s habit of concentrating on Thirteen Virtues which he felt would cause him to be a better person. Ben kept track of his virtues daily, giving himself a “black mark” in a small notebook when he failed to live up to that virtue. He also cycled through each of his virtues, spending a week, four times each year, concentrating on, studying and encouraging the particular virtue. This is the practice that Kathy at BlissHabits has duplicated for encouraging the habits of bliss."

The 13 habits are:
  1. JOY - A source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something exceptionally festive or satisfying.
  2. ORDER - Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  3. CREATIVITY - The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.
  4. PASSION – a fervent or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything; experience of strong love or sexual desire.
  5. WHIMSY – extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression; an odd or fanciful notion.
  6. SERENITY – the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; composure, peacefulness, peace.
  7. INQUIRY – a seeking or request for truth, information, or knowledge; study, scrutiny, exploration.
  8. COMMUNITY - Sharing, participation, and fellowship.
  9. ROMANCE – To court or woo romantically; treat with ardor or chivalrousness; a strong fascination or enthusiasm for something.
  10. GRATITUDE – warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; very thankful.
  11. MOXIE -  Possessing the attribute of ”coolness” and able to face difficulty with spirit and courage; sass, spunk, determination and attitude.
  12. HUMILITY – The quality or condition of being humble; imitate Jesus and Socrates.
  13. SURPRISE - A sudden feeling of wonder or astonishment; to come upon or discover suddenly and unexpectedly.
Well on to my  my little tag. It has a tiny door, so I've shown it open and closed. I used  darling Dezinaworld image. But since it's been a long post, I won't detail how I made it. You can just enjoy the photos, hope you enjoy them.

Hope your week is full of wonderful surprises.
take care, gerri
