Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Learn About Other People's Lives - They Just Might Inspire You!
This past weekend we watched the movie Temple Grandin. It is a true story about a woman with autism who overcomes obstacles to pursue her passion of helping animals. It was amazing! I love the message that Ms. Grandin kept repeating - "Nature can be cruel. We don't have to be." Temple Grandin continues to dedicate her life to trying to improve the well-being of animals - particularly cattle - even in places like slaughter houses and feed lots. I was incredibly moved by her determination and the difference she is making. It inspires me to consider how I can make a difference in my world - whether on a small scale or a grand scale. Who have you met or read about lately who inspires you? How might your story inspire someone else?
Today's post card also began with a Crumb Cake postcard and I used two rectangle masks for the "to" and "from" boxes. I sponged the card with Soft Suede ink. The ants and bugs and greeting were stamped in a variety of colors - Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive. Of course, I had to add some 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds to give my worm some glitz! I hope you like it! :)
