Purple Wedding: Journaling Card 05

Still our series of Journaling Card freebies, I would like to share these cards with you:

 

Tonight, I would like you to pause for a bit and reminisce about you, your own life, your own love. I know you will see that there were a lot of challenges in the past, but if you realize how they took  you to where you are right now, and I hope you are happy where you are right now, you will definitely say it is worth it. 😉

And if in case, you are not yet where you want to be yet, take heart. Pray. Then push and move forward. You will get there eventually.

And if by any chance, you feel tired, like you’re almost giving up, don’t! Keep silent for a bit. Rest. Re-charge. Then move forward again. Do not entertain negativity. Pray.

Sometimes, it is in silence that our hearts and minds get opened — to the realities of life, the lessons of the past, and the value of the present or the future that we so desire, that we realize, sometimes the road is long, but it is/will definitely be worth it.

Aja!

 

To God be the glory! 🙂

 

 

 

Purple Wedding: Journaling Card 02

Together.

Julia Roberts once said, “I believe that two people are connected at the heart, and it doesn’t matter what you do, or who you are or where you live; there are no boundaries or barriers if two people are destined to be together.”

And I believe in this too. As a matter of fact, our purple wedding is a testimony to that. Two hearts, although separated by land and seas, managed to one day meet, fall in love, and then the rest is history.

And you know what? That is how God loves us too! He is here, there and everywhere. Always at the company of His children. He is together with us, though we do not see Him physically. He is always with us, through thick and thin, for better or for worse; to help us get through the thin, and to help make our worse, better.

So if God, or even our couple, can love like that; the rest of us can too. So start now, and be the answer to the very timely question, “Where is the love?”

But before you go off showing that love somewhere, together, download the second batch of my journaling cards first!

Gift Wrapping from Scraps

I have always been a fan of handmade. I do handmade. But I have always been worried about the resources you waste or the trees you kill with all the materials discarded after a handmade project.

So yep, I have become a hoarder. I believe that as long as that piece of paper is at least 3/4 inch wide, it can be reused. So I hoard papers up to the smallest cut you would normally throw away. And we have been recycling stuff from projects into new projects.

And one of the most common venues where we could use all these scraps is through gift-wrapping.

So when hubby got this gift we asked my mom to wrap of us, he was really surprised to see it so dainty. But I wasn’t. Coz I was expecting it to turn out nicely, not only because my mom is creative and meticulous on these things, but because I was sure she’d just get something out of my scraps. (Here she used pink papers from a child’s 3rd birthday guestbook to wrap the gifts, a beige board from a friend’s wedding invitation for the tag, and pink paper from my daughter’s bookmark project for that little butterfly.)

At least in a way, I do believe we help keep this world prettier and cleaner… by continuing to make pretty handmade things out of fewer mess. 😉

So how do you say goodbye to your own craft materials? Do you hoard stuff and recycle them too?

I hope you do 😉

 

To God be the glory! 🙂
