Dreamers & Doers
I barely posted the Bonita Bag before it sold! I'm very exited that someone snagged it so quickly. Also, say a final goodbye to the fabulous octopus card as it sold also-- unless you are the lucky recipient!
Thank you to everyone that recycles and supports creative recycling too! Thank you to Tara and Sarah, both in California, who purchased the Bonita Bag and the Octopus Card. I can't do this without your support!
At my day job everyone now saves every bit of paperboard for me to review before recycling. It is great! I get beautiful tea boxes, greeting cards, postcards, and all sorts of great materials for business cards, tags, and my vintage fabric cards (as seen above). I pulled this quote off a tea box that I got from work (Celestial Seasonings Green Tea and based in Boulder, also the home of ReLove Projects) (it was fun creating all those links. But on with it already!) SO, ahem, here is the quote from the tea box:
"The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do."
-Sarah Ban Breathnach
I love that. I so often get lost in my dreams, but they can't get out into the world unless I do something with them. One other quote that I remember from a few years ago and love, again it is about the doing (and I'm sorry, I have no idea who said it. If anyone knows, please comment!):
"It's the energy you bring to the time you have that produces the extraordinary."
