Some weeks, making a new page is a lovely, seamless, happily creative experience. Other weeks? Not so much.
I've always loved that bit of advice you hear from successful creative types: if you wait for inspiration, you'll never get anything done. Or in many more words: if you want to create on a consistent basis, you must sit down, be disciplined, and get to work, regardless of whether inspiration is sitting on your shoulder whispering into your ear or, more often than not, off partying in Vegas and refusing to return your calls.
I believe this advice to be absolutely true. It's the butt-in-seat, focus-on-the-task-at-hand approach that always comes through in the end. Except, sometimes it takes a little longer.
So, without any further excuses, today's page begins with a quote that reminds me that it's just fine (even desirable) when things don't work out exactly as one expects . . .
There's also a spot to think about the little things that make a big difference . . .
The full page looks strikingly like this one here . . .
and you'll find it here (without even a hint of a border) and here (with a hint of border, but absolutely no colour) and here (completely and oh so colourfully bordered.)
Happy Wednesday, friends!
