Hold Fast Your Dreams


Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend bringing in a new outlook, goals, ideas or whatever it is that you have laid out for yourself in the coming months.
I hope and pray that all your dreams and wishes come true,
and I am excited to start my first full year of blogging with you!

I am going to try from time to time just posting an image that I have taken and perhaps played around with, and pair it to some quotes and that I run across that inspire me or speak to me.

There are many of you out there that I see do this
and I just love it.
Your images and words just put my soul at peace and that is something that
I hope to do in 2011 and from there on.



Hold fast your DREAMS!

Within your heart

Keep one still, secret spot

Where dreams may go

and sheltered so,

May thrive and grow.

Where doubt and fear are not.

O keep a place apart,

winthin your heart,

for little dreams to go!

-Louise Driscoll

Gorgeous Michelle, such a great fun idea too!
Regarding the buttons, I made them from scratch (not easy)
Happy New year to you!

Hi Girlie! Love how you play with images. The little pops of sepia tone are really interesting. I'm sure you have more in the works! Beautiful!

Really beautiful and I love your new header!

Beautiful image and words! I love this idea. Images can really say a lot even without words sometimes. So I love the simplicity of this idea.

I also read your previous post and boy you hit the nail on the head for me too. This is what I have had planned. Simplify! I get those panic attacks too and getting organized is my plan for that. Reduce the clutter!
