Oh boy!! It's been a long time!! Aaaalllllloooohhhhaaaa!! Sorry for neglecting this blog!  I've been so wrapped up in Summer, that it's been leaving me little time to craft, and blog.  I will do my best to start up again on the regular.

I wanted to continue with my Moorea Seal 52 lists project.  I am on Week 15: List you favorite quotes ""

I could literally go on for days with this topic!! I love quotes, I find them so inspirational.  I admit that I go through a good part of my day reading quotes.  These are just to name a few that I love, and some are things that I'm currently feeling.  It's weird because sometimes you might not like a quote, but you can relate to it or it moves you in some way. 

Things to do with quotes.
1.) Turn them into art.  This is such a cool idea.  You could put a different one in each room of your house.  You could write it out or paint it or if you have a cutting machine you could cut the letters out, another cool idea is to cut the words out from a magazine.  After you compose your words out on paper whatever you want to display it on, you can frame it and hang it.  Or if you're feel like it, paint it right on to your walls.

2.) Gift it.  Believe me, this is a good one to give to someone for graduation or someone that's moving or going through a hardship or a quote freak like me! :)  I love to give gifts with meaning or gifts that I know the receiver really wants or could use.  You could do the same thing like above and give it away.  Another idea is to make an entire book of your fav quotes and add little pictures or notes to things that relate to your and the special person.  I've done this one a lot, and it's always a hit!!!

3.) Motivation.  Write down a quote that you love or one that has something to do with a goal or emotion that you're feeling, and keep it in your wallet or some place that you go to a lot.  Let it remind you of what you're trying to achieve or just let it be there to brighten your day. 

I hope you like my list!! It's amazing how words can impact us in both positive and negative ways.  Do you have a fav quote?  Want to share it with me?

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Parting shot.

Wishing for an endless summer!
