This journal page started as a big mistake. I had split some very dark blue ink on part of the journal page. I decided to just go with it and grabbed a baby wipe and spread the ink all around. Then stamped the clocks with white chalk ink and let every thing dry while I cut out the flowers. They are some freebies from a few weeks back. The quote is one of my favorite springtime quotes.
I hope everyone is enjoying this Earth Day. I awoke to clean pollen free air and the sounds of the birds singing. I realized how very lucky I am to get up and just walk to the shower, flush a toilet, open my frig and make something to eat...All things I take for granted. The simple act of turning on the faucet and getting clean water for many is unheard of.
We all can make a difference on this planet. The world of blogging alone should open everyone's eyes to the power we actually have. So I am challenging each and everyone of you to think of one thing that you can do to make this world a better place to live. What can you do or give up that will help this place we call earth? I personally have been thinking about this quite a bit and have decided to have at least one car free day a week, to again cut down the amount of plastic that comes into my home, to turn my thermostat at least 5 degrees higher or lower than I regularly would, to plant a tree for each of my children, and to reuse, recycle, and rethink everything that comes into my house and out. What ways are you helping the earth?
