I firmly believe that you can handle almost anything, as long as you have a nice, big stash of serenity, hidden deep within yourself.
The key to finding it, is getting to know, accepting and loving the person that you are. Not wishing you were something or someone else.
I'm also a firm believer that no one should never just accept their personal issues. If something really bugs you - face it. Stare it in the face, and challenge it.
You can change your life, like that.
No one else can do it for you.
Ok - so that's the deep thoughts for today.
They inspired this Petaloo-LO... And as you might be able to tell - I really LOVE those flowers! They're so versatile! The roses & leaves are color-me-crazies. They're white, originally - but I painted them with distress ink refills and water.
I adore those.
Petaloo flowers: Wild roses/color-me-crazy, embossed leaves/color-me-crazy, tyed-dyed gypsies.
Random alphas (Doodlebug and Pink Paislee, I think) plus American Crafts (the white one) and Adornit (the minis)
Distress ink refills from Ranger
Yellow gems (the tyed-dyed flowers already have gems in the middle - but I wanted yellow ones, so I switched them.)
