Choosing Creativity

Personally I adore short sayings, signs, clips, and words of wisdom. Some are thought provoking, funny, political, informative, or even words to live by. At least I have chosen to live by some of them....
I believe that each of us are here to learn; from the day we are born, until the day we die. Some of what we learn is challenging, some is trivial, some knowledge is inspiring, or overwhelming. Each of us chooses how we perceive what we learn. We choose for ourselves, what matters to us. We choose if we will use what we have learned, and how. We choose what direction our creativity will take, then we
use our abilities to reach our goals.
  • Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.--Lou Holtz
  • There is something that is much more scarce, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.--Robert Half
  • You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.--Rosalynn Carter
  • The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.--Carl Jung
  • Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.--Edward de Bono
  • Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.--Scott Adams
  • Imagination is the spark that ignites the fire of creativity.--Richard Laurence Peterson
If you choose to believe that imagination is a spark, and creativity the fire, then my hope for you is that your creativity BLAZES ON Powerfully.

Tempting Fate

Just A Few Flower Arrangements From One Of My Other Shops On Etsy , RealisticFlorals

Hello everyone!

This is my first attempt at creating a blog post, so here goes........
At the present time, I am technologically challenged, and relatively new to online selling venues. Learning has always been enjoyable, and that's great; considering all that I have been learning to do lately: navigation, typing, map reading, data entry, techi translation, and many new vocabulary words. All the stuff I thought I wouldn't ever need to use again; in Real Life. There has also been an exorbitant amount of new information, programs, tips, and applications in many different areas. Having a Business online mirrors motherhood; you need to be a jack of all trades. As a mother you don many roles: teacher, caregiver, friend, confidant, doctor, accountant, fashion consultant, and short order cook (to name a few). Where as having an online business requires a whole new set of diverse roles. One needs to become an exceptional photographer, a computer genius, master time management, and organizational skills, analyze charts and graphs, search for affordable unique supplies, and design (for a start). During the challenging times, levity, and common sense helps me cope. I personally adore short sayings, signs, clips, and quotes. Here are a few of my favorite coping mechanisms:

  • I Don't Get Hot Flashes....I Get Power Surges!
  • Make sure Brain is in Gear, Before Engaging Mouth
  • Don't Wish...Choose
  • Discover What Is Possible
  • What You Seek... You Surely Find
  • It Is What It Is...Now Deal With It
  • Just Do It
  • and finally, If It's not Working Change It

Well it's too late for me to change this, I hope it worked for you

Here are several of my Necklaces that I have listed in my shop and a few floral arrangements from my other shop

What Other Roles Have You Needed to Become Adept In, Being An Online Business Owner?
