Today is International Day of Peace

"Peace Day should be devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples…This day will serve as a reminder to all peoples that our organization, with all its limitations, is a living instrument in the service of peace and should serve all of us here within the organization as a constantly pealing bell reminding us that our permanent commitment, above all interests or differences of any kind, is to peace."

With the world in such a tumultuous state most of the time, it’s becoming much harder to find peace, but peace is possible.

Peace is not something tangible, it costs nothing, and it is attainable for anyone. Peace is something that comes from within and we are the only ones who can bring peace to ourselves and others.

In honor of Peace Day, lets set our egos aside and spend today finding that inner peace and sharing it with the world.

Meditations and yoga are just a couple of things that can bring inner peace, but it doesn’t stop at the end of the a meditation or yoga session. We can continue bringing peace into our lives by biting our tongue a little more, sharing love where we can, and having hope in our world and its people.

Finding that peace within yourself is the first step to changing the world.

Speaking of new projects….

If you read my previous post, you already know that I am thinking of new projects and you may have sensed the itch to start preparing for the holidays.

So as I was submitting some new ideas for eBooks, I found some fun little projects on one of my favorite download sites. Check out what they have in store for fall projects!

Download Today - Make Today!

After you get your fill of new projects to start, why don’t you share them with me. I would love to see what you are doing these days!

I am also thinking of sharing some projects here on the blog, so if you have some ideas or some projects you want to share, contact me!

Falling into Fall

The temperatures are falling, the apples are falling, and soon it will be the leaves falling from the trees. Sadly, summer is nearing the end. The kids are all returning to school and my thoughts are beginning to turn to inside projects. I have been cooking much more and even thinking of new sewing projects.

I have finished another eBook that I think you will love. This is a kid size seat belt cover! It’s available in my etsy shop. And I am on to new projects.

Here is a peak at my latest eBook

With that said, now that your thoughts will be turning to inside projects soon as well, think of making some of these for your kiddos or grandkids for Christmas!
