Bringing out my Crafty Side…

We’ve been dealing with heavier issues in life lately and I needed to refocus my thoughts.  Last year, I did a great job of keeping my focus on the positives and blessings in our life (even when it seemed like life was completely upside down).   I told myself often, There is always something to be thankful for.   There are blessings in every trial.

Anyway a few weeks ago, I finally pulled all my supplies together and in a couple of hours on a rainy afternoon, I had my focus project completed.

I am really happy with the way it turned out and it’ll make a great daily reminder that “There is always something to be thankful for.”


For now, it sits on the fireplace mantel out of the way until hubby can mount it over the door to our den.  I was linking back to show the fireplace with the mantel from the early months of blogging but the fireplace hadn’t been completely trimmed and the mantel isn’t there.

I found the original idea on pinterest.
