Now, as I embark on Year Two, I'm every bit as excited about my craft as I was when Quilliance first started. Then, I was just beginning to explore the possibilities of combining quilling with photography to create unusual cards; now I'm being blown away by the capabilities of my newly-acquired Photoshop Elements software which has put my imagination into over-drive with a host of new ideas. As soon as I start working on them, you'll read about it here!
In my very first post, on 21st January 2010, I quoted from a prayer which I have tried very hard to make reality throughout the past year of my life:
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
Today, I'd like to share a further thought, which is that true happiness springs from nothing more than simply noticing and appreciating the things we have.
Working on my crafts and writing Quilliance have genuinely helped me to understand the deep wisdom of these words. And now it is my pleasure to pass them on to you.
