I used a slightly larger hook than was called for, and I crochet loosely as it is, but I really love how pretty it came out!
The directions were easy to follow, and it only took me a couple of nights... hmmm.. maybe three, actually, to finish it... If you would like to try to make one yourself, you can find the pattern HERE, at Bella Crochet. Just think how pretty this would be on a white pumpkin too!
Next, Scrapping The Music's current challenge is set to a song by Chrystal Bowersox, called "Ridin' With The Radio". (Remember her from American Idol?)...
The words in the song are an inspiration to me, and remind me not to be too hard on myself... To love myself and others better than that. "Drop the hate", and "Let your love light shine."
Well, along with another 7-day challenge, by Terri Cole, I found at Positively Positive, both challenges seemed to coincide very nicely, I thought; so then I made them into one entire spread in my junque/art journal. The left side page is the article I saved, and then that opens like a flap to reveal seven days of journaling, some "introspection", on how I treated myself during those specific days.
Some of the days were wonderful, and some were o.k., while one seemed not so very good at all... But what can I do about that? We all just have to take the good, the bad, and the downright ugly, as best we can or know how. And like Ol' Blue Eyes Frank sings it, "I just can't let it get me down, 'cause this big old world keeps spinnin' around.".... "That's life"! It's important to just hang in there, stay strong, be kind to ourselves in the process.... And don't forget to keep that love light shining!
Here's wishing that life,
and this week has been kind to you...
And thank you so much for stopping by!
