While I was "working"....
Today, I was ordering some fabric for my soon-to-be new nephew's room. We are going to do some really fun and really cute things with this fabric from superbuzzy.com (she has tons of cool Japanese fabrics)
My sister picked this out, much to my surprise! Before she had said, 'oh, I think that I want really modern fabric so he can grow into it:)' And she said it just like that, with a smiley face and everything. Then she sends me an email with this fabric linked to it:) So we are matching it up with some brown polkadot fabric and some lime stripes on the wall. I think that it's going to look really good. (love you, sis, but that story still cracks me up)
Now, I went to my other favorite online fabric store and saw Heather Bailey's new fabric! So I had to check out her blog...and I found this quote:
"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded."-- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
I love it. I want this kind of success.
