Quote of the Week 3

Hmm… how many times do we catch ourselves being grumpy because someone else is grumpy? Uh-huh, thought so. Now let’s switch that around. How many times do you smile when you see someone else smile? It works both ways! They’re both very contagious – just saying. 🙂

(Did you just smile? 😉 )

What are the things you do to change your corner of the world (even the small things are big enough!)?

Inspirational Quote of the Week

I’d dare say that the implications of this week’s quote comes a little closer to home than some of us would admit, because most of us are procrastinators! 🙂 Putting off until tomorrow what can and should be done today, is a bad end to the day and gives a surprisingly (if I may even use that word!) limp boost to tomorrow. You know what I’m talking about – just do it!

Quote of the Week | #1

Quotes are popular, inspiration is popular, and there is certainly a reason for both! Psychology says that just by smiling, you will instantly feel a little better. I’ve even tried it to alleviate pain and it works ways faster than any medication! Inspirational quotes come in somewhere close to the smile. There are sooo many quotes out there, lists and lists of them. Not all of them are awesome, so I thought it’d be great to pick out the best ones and lighten up your heavy daily loads with a weekly quote – the ones that are like gold nuggets of inspiration and cheer!

A Peek into My Life…

While today was supposed to be scheduled for another How to Draw episode, I thought it would be fun to interrupt with a sneak peak into what life looks like through my eyes and a “Quote of the Day”!

In addition to being a blogger, artist, singer/songwriter/composer/pianist, and the occasional dabbling with photography, I’m also a farm girl. Yes, I was born and raised on an organic pastured chicken farm. Quite the adventure! Like yesterday morning when I was milking the family cow, and she knocked the milker over and milk started spewing everywhere! 😛 Which brings us to the profound “Quote of the Day” that came to me after this particular incidence. 🙂

Quote of the Day 1

I’ve selected 10 semi random photos to share with ya’ll. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?! Continue reading “A Peek into My Life…”

Something to Live By

I love my new studio. I plan to do a whole introductory post of the LoveNotes Studio of Fine Arts sometime soon. It’s a little log building under persimmon trees (yum!). We began building it in 2012, but didn’t finish until this year. I’m so super  excited to be using it for all my school, music study, artwork, and blogging. It is the  place where my mind runs free. It is my own spot and I love it.

All my favorite decorations reside there including a frame which contains the words below. It hangs above my desk and is an inspiring reminder for me every time I go in there.

One Year Blogiversary!

Today marks the one year anniversary of LoveNotes! I’m so excited with how far we’ve come, and how far we’ll go in this next year. I have learned so much through blogging. Being a steady blogger is certainly not for the faint of heart and I must admit that sticking to a schedule is something I try to accomplish but regularly fail doing.

If you were given the chance, what is the one thing you would improve, change, or love about this blog? I’m giving you the chance to say it! I would absolutely love to hear your opinions in the comment section below! While this blog is my outlet, it is ultimately for you guys and the glory of God.

You all are awesome for joining me throughout this first year of trial and error. I have many goals and dreams for this blog and only time will tell what happens. 😉

My quote for this year hits me right between the eyes every I time I read it. I tend to be a little too timid and afraid of what others will think.

“If you are doing it for the glory of God, then why are you hiding it in your drawer?”



A Cheery Christmas Thought

I love this quote… so true, and I hope it for each one of you!

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
~Ada V. Hendricks

And I almost laughed at this quote when I found it.

Oh, for the good old days when people would stop Christmas shopping when they ran out of money. ~Author Unknown

Hmm, a little too painfully true, though! I think we should reference back to the quote above; none of those things should be solely because of money, but because of Jesus coming to earth on that Christmas so long ago and living in our hearts today!

The Two Best Christmas Quotes

I love quotes. Like, really like them. I don’t really know why. 🙂 So with my quote obsession, I am constantly trying to find a new good one to fit the occasion. I thought the two following ones were perfectly awesome and sweet to share with y’all. Read them as if I had written them (which I didn’t). I mean every word!

My Grown Up Christmas List ♥…. No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts And everyone would have a friend And right would always win And love would never end... This is my grown up christmas list.   <3:
