One of my favorite things about Etsy is the endless array of amazing artists that I can check out... and try not to buy.  Because I love words so much, I decided to look for a sampling of artists that also use words to create.  Here are a few of my favorites... 
This gorgeous Vintage Bliss necklace by Inclusive Jewelry reminds me what bliss is all about. 
POSTIT in writing - THINKpad (sticky notes)
I am a teacher and I wish I could get a notepad like this from reuseREDESIGN for each of my students. This is one of my "rules" in my classroom: THINK!

Hand Stamped Cappuccino Cups - Set of 2
These cups by simplyprettyprints give you a treat when you finish your cup of coffee (or tea!)

This sign by AlphabetDIVA reminds me of what I love the most... Traveling. I can't wait for my next adventure. Switzerland? Indonesia? Africa? 

Joy Photo Print 8X10 Coral Seashells
My life is so full of joy and this photo by eternalimages brings an even bigger smile to my face. Nature is so amazing! 

Vintage Ledger Thank You Seals
We all have someone that we need to thank and these seals by KisforCalligraphy remind us to do just that! I know I am blessed with some pretty amazing people in my life. Speaking of which.... 
FRIENDS Wooden Sign
This is one of my favorite signs as it always makes me think of the incredible people I have in my life. I have the best friends a girl could ask for and am so thankful for each and every one of them. Visit my store to see more signs and to check out more of my Etsy favorites!

deep breath

I have been busy busy busy... AND surrounded by words it seems :) 

I have had several orders and custom orders from various sources in the last couple of days. It's been crazy (but good!) 

I am also part of a contest on this blog ... ... so I would really appreciate it if you would go vote for me... It will only take a few seconds, you only have to comment :) Thank you so much! 

This weekend I am moving home... (only for 2 months) until I move more permanently to my new job in August. It's going to be a busy weekend... I'm working on a new blog post though! 

I received this quote today and it made me smile. It is so relevant to my life right now and what I am working on in my life:

"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the best, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly." 

I'm thinking about writing it on my hand so that I can remember it when I get stressed out!

Have a HAPPY day!
