Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

During the past week I found my Project 365. I knew I wanted to be more creative and try to create daily. But many times, daily art is just not possible. But that's okay, because there are many ways to be creative and as long as I can be extra creative on the weekend, I can still amass 365 things.

Lost Coast Post has an excellent article on how to start a 365 project..

While searching for some papers, I came across a box of my husband's old business cards - well over 400 of them! Perfect for a year's worth of collaging. So my project began.
This month I have been creating "JOY" cards and having fun with them.

Then I created some with joy quotes:

These are a bit smaller than an ATC, so very manageable to work on, even daily  if possible.

Finding JOY
One of the fun spots this week was finding a new background picture for my computer. As soon as I saw it I laughed and every time it appears it makes me smile. I took this several years ago when we saw the Holiday Train when it stopped in Cambridge. This was a person dressed up handing out treats to the children.

May you find joy in the simple things this week.

Love, love, love all the joy quotes!! I was thinking about joy quotes today too. :) Your ATCs are so wonderful. Love the sweet owl! And I love your new background snowman!

Lovely idea & results. There's room to add a few prompts, too! The simple things are certainly usually the best.

I love the idea of your joy cards. What a lovely accumulation you'll have at the end of the year.

Joy sure is more lovely when it comes filled with color and loving words ;-)
