She Art Cover

You know those times when there seems to be lots of negative stuff... well that has been the last month here. Nothing major just inconveniences, a broken dryer, motorcycle, chain saw, door knob, kitchen light fixture and now my glass cooktop cracked! Is that crazy??? I took a pot off and was draining it when there was a huge pop and smaller pop and when I looked at the stove would you believe 2 cracks all the way across the top. Having to cook on the two burners but at least its still usable :) Sometimes all that stuff seems a bit overwhelming. Last night I couldnt sleep so decided to get up and distract my mind by creating. This She Art cover for my paper bag album was the result.

When I got home from work this evening the wind had died down, the sun was still up and it was so beautiful. I pulled a few weeds in the garden, grabbed a few lettuce leaves and took them to the rabbits. We have a couple little babies about two months old so just sat and watched them peacefully eating. I was just reflecting on how blessed I am and these Little hic ups are just that so need to put them in perspective :) I hadn't put a title on my cover. After pondering I added this one and thought I would share it with you all. I like the bright cheery colors, they make me smile.

Wow Miss Davi! I LOVE your She Art Cover! Just so peaceful and serene! and I Love the colors you chose too! Just a Lovely scene. And I know just what you mean, sometimes all the little things pile up all at the same time, makes you wonder what in the heck is going on! And all we really need is to take a step back, a time out, if you will, and remember what's really important.. Something I don't always remember to do, lol So thanks so much for the reminder my friend! 8-)

Hope you have a Wonderful weekend! 8-)

Big hugs to you!

Oh Davi so many little things going wrong but it sounds as if you worked it all out perfectly, I think that seeing the sun, doing the weeding, feeding the rabbits, it all sounds so blissful, and this piece of work is fantastic I think you got the title spot on, I love it.

I'm sorry about all the negatives...the cook-top worries me because I have one and the oven has already stopped working (less than a year old). I have always been afraid I would drop something on the top and break hear that yours cracked on its own isn't good! But your She Art is fabulous!! I love all the beautiful colors and the gorgeous design!! So pretty!! Thanks for sharing :)

Love this She Art Cover, Davi! My goodness, can't believe what happened to your cook top. That is very strange. But, it does sound as if your day had a peaceful ending. I wish I could learn to realize more what is most important and not let the 'smaller' things bug me so much, but they just don't seem so small when it is happening, right? I hope your week ahead is running much smoother and filled with God's blessings.
