what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us - Emerson

A new blog - a fresh start - new thoughts - reviving my heart - it's been rough lately - i decided to start a new blog - to focus on positive thoughts - to remind me to practice mindfulness - each day is a fresh start - each and every moment we have the ability to make choices - we are not locked into anything - we can change - we can grow - we can become better at living 


This brings me to mention my buttons - buttons have been collecting in a bag in my studio for decades - I've never really known what to do with them - I couldn't part with them - so I thought I'd give them a reason to live - they are going to be sewn into a chain on a peace (piece) of caramel coloured vinyl - I will meditate upon each button as i sew - thinking a positive thought - until i have a set of beads I can wear - a set of beads to remind me to be positive - to practice mindfulness - a set of beads/buttons that I can pray and meditate with - in the hope of attaining a level of positivity through the practice of perservering with positive thoughts - I believe focusing on the negative produces some negative outcomes - focusing on the positive allows you to make decisions that are perhaps more rational and less reactive - I would love for you to join me in my venture - an open invitation to all


Find your buttons - wherever they might be hiding - in old draws, etc, and sew them into a cushion, a throw rug, a dress, a vest, a necklace - as you sew them onto your garment - look only for happy memories and thoughts and dwell on a positive quote - such as the one above in the title -
