Yay! I completed Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday class. This makes me so happy. It was quite the project. Learning, creating and sharing. It is a big deal. Some lessons are simple & fun and others are a work in progress, but great lessons all the same. I shared the first half of my mini book here and below is the completed second half.
Starting with my cover. I know I shared it before, but here is how the book looks completed:
Page seventeen: One can survive on the basics. I loved this sign that I saw in a very tiny town in Tennesse(population 321-really!) No Mickey D's. No Walmart. Maybe even no cell signal...
Page nineteen: A little TLC goes a long way. Bryant brought home this itty bitty tree over three years ago and it still continues to grow ansd thrive. We love our little tree!
Page twenty-one: I need to take time to relax. This is something I am constantly working on, but on a recent trip, I took some much needed 'me time'.
Page twenty-three: I think I could survive on peanut butter smoothies. I found a place in Vegas (last year and re-discovered it this year) that makes one that I just could not get enough of. It definately is the simple pleasures in life.
Page twenty-four: One can never have enough friends. I made a lot of new friends at IU this year and can not wait to see them next year!
Page twenty-five: It is okay to spend some time alone. I love my friends and family, but my alone time is very valuable for my sanity-ha!
Page twenty-seven: There never seems to be enough time in the day. As I get older I am realizing more and more, that you can only do what you can do, in the time that you have. Use time wisely and you will be surprised what you can accomplish!
Page twenty-nine: Laughter is the best medicine! I love to laugh. This is not a new lesson, but it is one of my favorites.
So colorful and fun:
All in all, doing this project made me think. I learned some new things and I re-learned some other things. It will be great to look back on it a year from now and see how I have grown.
