 The older I get, the more I like HARMONY, and I don't mean the singing kind, although I like that, too. I just feel a little less like always making my viewpoint known, whatever the cost, and a little more like listening to the viewpoints of others. In most cases, once you cast off egos and whatnot, you can reach a sort of harmony. It's nice.
 This picture is overexposed. Expert photographer I'm not, but the Artistic Outpost image is beautiful. Complex in detail, simple in mood, I've loved this stamp from the first time I saw it. See a better view here.
 Authentic German glass glitter. I bought a ginormous bag and am selling reasonable portions in my Etsy shop. This stuff is so pretty, and because it's actual silver, it tarnishes in a charming, graceful way. Delightful stuff I tell ya!
 I make fairly elaborate bookmarks, but these aren't them. Here, I've just let the pretty papers do all the talking.
More of that pretty paper, this time in little gift cards. These come with their own tiny envelopes. You sort of want to squeal when you see them. I don't squeal of course, because I'm way too sophisticated for that. Plus, I teach junior high, so I've usually endured my quota of squealing by the time I get home.

Hi Carla! I'm visiting from Beatrice Bank's blog.

I agree with your perspective on "harmony." Living peaceably is more important than being heard. God's wisdom always brings harmony! ;)
