Scatter Sunshine

"The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much, scatter sunshine." Norman Vincent Peale
Between the never ending tropical downpours and a few other thing going on afternoon sunshine has been a special treat and well worth taking the time to appreciate.  Click the link for Sky Watch Friday to see what other bloggers have found on their horizon.

Spied this sneaky little rainbow popping out of the clouds this week. A rainbow in a week of rain and more rain is a welcome treat.  Sharing with Sky Watch Friday friends, follow the link to see what bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky this week. Sky Watch is like taking a quickie world tour with all kinds of amazing scenes to enjoy.
Next week I am hosting a on line tutorial on the My Creative Classroom web site. The theme is shadow boxes and includes lots of introductions to mixed media techniques.
Am celebrating this week with a guest post featuring Luminarte Silks paints on the Splash of Color blog.   Hope your week is full of color, rainbows or painted or otherwise.

Present in the Present and Grateful

"If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present …. gratefully." Maya Angelou

 Happy Sky Watch Friday, the wind has been a bit blustery in these parts making the river a bit choppy, but any day on the water has got to be a good day in my book. Click the link to see what other Sky Watch fans have found on their horizon to share.  Another link to share is Living the Good Life on the North Coast, all about a beautiful region of sub tropical Australia.
Pinterest.  . .  . . .  it lured me in with all those pretty little pictures and that instant click of living in the present, like that, pin that, praying we will have time to try that soon.  I like having the blog space to write about new creative projects and where we are travelling to so we will keep this blog space. Click the link to follow my interests in Pinterest.  Crafting and photography friends please let me know if it is ok to link your sites into the Pinterest boards because you know how good it feels to be surrounded with creative friends, colourful inspiration and pretty horizons to explore.
