Thoughts for Thursday and Thirty Thousand Hits - RAK RAK RAK !

“ Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ”

- Mark Twain [Samuel Clemens] (1835-1910),
humorist, essayist, novelist

This month, go out and do something that you've always wanted to do! Do something for yourself and do it without regret! Take a class, learn a new sport, make a new friend....

Inky Smiles!

{RAK}
My counter says over 30,000 hits!!!! WOOOOOT! I think I need to give something away! How about some chip board elements from American Crafts?

I have a little Holiday House Chipboard Summer container choc full of fun colorful paper treats waiting for a new home in some lucky person's STASH!

Leave a comment on this post and I will have Brent draw a name on Sunday for a lucky winner!

Inky Smiles!

Sad to read that you resigned from CTMH on an earlier post....I remember your name from helping other consultants get bargains from one of the warehouse sales...

Loved your heart project...
