“She went out on a limb, had it break off behind her, and realized she could fly”
Kobi Yamada

How could I not have known that there is a whole world of blogging going on and I never knew about it!  I am simply AMAZED!!!!!! 

Inspiration is everywhere! 

I decided to go out on a limb and start up my own shop at etsy.com.  I am very excited for my new adventure.  Please check out my site at www.etsy.com/shop/simplyshaypaints let’s pray, that I will know how to fly! 

Hugs & Love

Jeremiah 29:11 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

My favorite verse of all time….
 “Am I using my talents and expertise to their fullest potential?” If I ever say no, then I need to figure a way to make it a yes…
 I recently read this quote on a dear friend’s blog “The Network Today.”  I was reminded that no, I’m not using my talents.  I do believe that the only reason I have any talent is because God has trusted me with it.  So, I have chosen to say “yes” and that is why I started this blog.   As a busy mother and coach’s wife, I need to remind myself that it’s okay to have time for me, for my creative time!  We are told to nourish our bodies with food, but we also need to nourish our souls… painting is the food for my soul!
