Tuesday Tid Bits

Hi Everyone!

Sadly, I do not have anything to report from the creative front.  I feel like I am currently stuck amongst a sea of unfinished projects...and not just craft ones.  Between appointments and making lists to make sure none of the end of the school year events get missed, I feel pretty fragmented.

Beth comes home this Friday for a couple of weeks before leaving for Washington DC for her internship position for the summer.  We will have clothes shopping and lots of other errands to get her ready - how exciting for her!

I do have some movie review information for you.  I know the critics have been pretty hard on The Great Gatsby, and even though I loved the book and couldn't wait for the movie, I was hesitant to go see it.  Well, last week I couldn't wait any longer and I went - and I loved it! If you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. It was very well done, they did a great job explaining it, the actors were amazing, I just can't say enough positive things about it. Yes, it is a sad, heartbreaking story - but it is timeless. The twins just finished reading it in school and I am so hoping they want to go see it because I would love to go again!

Speaking of the twins - they had their junior prom this past weekend.  Eric and Ellen both went and they had a great time.  Pardon the proud mom moment - here are pictures of them dressed up and ready to go! (Thank you for letting me share them with you!)

You know, I was thinking, and even when one isn't actually creating and might be struggling to get through the day sometimes, you often find yourself drawing on inspiration - be it quotes, readings, or past experiences that you might have learned from.  Sometimes people provide you with the inspiration you need to pick yourself up and keep going.  Maybe it's the flowers you pass while driving out of your subdivision - you never know where or when you are going to find something or someone who makes that bright spot in your    day, or life, that keeps you going.

I wish you a week filled with inspiration of only the very best.
