DIY Fall Shabby Pumpkin

I have about 5 DIY fall projects in the works and this shabby pumpkin is the first to be finished.  It really was easy to make and fairly inexpensive.  I had most of the supplies sitting in my house already.  I just had to go buy more twine, as I ran out.

Miscarriages: What to Say or Do?

What To Say and Do For Someone Who's Had A Miscarraige

Yesterday's post was about things you should know about miscarriages whether you've had one or know of someone who has.  One of the things I learned was that people will say all the wrong things but typically not on purpose.  They really are trying to comfort those who have experienced a loss but often just don't know what to say or do.  Well this post is for those people.

10 Things to Know About Miscarriages

10 Things to Know About Miscarriages

Having five miscarriages by no means makes me an expert but I have learned a thing or two between my first loss and my last. Miscarriage is often one of those taboo topics that no one talks about.  I find that talking about it at least a little bit helps me to heal.  Its nice to not have to carry the burden alone and for others to recognize your loss.  Thus I have come up with 10 things I've learned about miscarriages.

Printable Quotes To Make You Smile

The thing I love about printable quotes is that we can change them out according to our current situations, that they may inspire us.

If you read my post about coping with grief you know that the last few months have been hard and I find that I cry... a lot.  With that being said I have also found things to laugh about and love.  Life has a funny way of pulling us in both directions.

I knew I wanted to do some more printable quotes and started searching for inspiration when I happened upon this quote by an unknown author.  My favorite part of this whole quote is the word "show."  Why?  It's an action verb.  Through all my tears and grief there have been moments where I wonder how I am supposed to keep moving on.  I've learned that I can't just wait for life to turn itself around and shower me with rainbows and butterflies, although that would be nice.  Instead I have to decide to find other things to be happy about and engage myself in activities that make me smile.

That's not to say I can't ever cry.  I need to cry, its therapeutic and its ok to cry.  I just need to make sure I'm finding more things that make me smile then not and boy do I have a lot to smile about.

This printable quote is August's free Download of the Month.  I hope you find inspiration in it like I have. You can download it from my website here.

Like my other printables the intent is that you will print it off on a regular 8 1/2 x 11 size paper and trim it to fit into an 8 x 10 frame.

What made you smile today?

Pintastic Monday Link Party 3

I think perhaps one of my favorite parts of hosting a Pin Party is getting to see all of the cools things everyone else is doing.  It makes me want to step up my game.  Plus of course it gives me a wide selection of things to pin.
