That is a good one, too, steiconi. I think I will make a sign to post on my bathroom mirror for that one!

I am taking some down time at the moment, and took the time to collect all these in a Word file. Then I can collect them as we go  Grin I wish I had done this sooner, because there have been other positive vibes shared here in other threads. I didn't take the time to collect those because I did not have a place to put them. (I know I could have just written them down so I could lose the scrappy paper later!) And good luck finding them now  Cheesy

I need to make myself a journal, but I have never been good at journaling private thoughts. I have tried several methods. I think it goes back to the days my sister would steal my diary and then tease me about it. Her diary had the same key. The journals I do now would be more like altered books. Very general.

I found my file for my affirmation cards that I have been looking for! It was right where I put it. Roll Eyes

I think this one will be my next card:

"I treat myself well, because I am worth it."

When my partner felt depressed, I bought a heart shaped box and filled that with love-quotes (on heart shapes paper). I glued a cloth spin on the lid, so he could put a quote on top of the box and change it when he wanted. Maybe you could do something like that?

I will come back and add a link to this project. done! HERE IT IS

And the picture of the project:

Thank you Ladybugs! Noted in my files.

My Mom has been trying to teach me the difference between being gracious, and having gratitude. I don't see a difference. To me, if you are gracious, you have gratitude, and vice versa.

And wonderful project, wendiek. You are obviously a good friend. I have a heart shaped box similar. It is tiny, but if I write small?  Grin I think I have some leftover Valentine Chocolate boxes. (cardboard). Perhaps I could recover one of those, and use that. For a similar idea.

I love the little felt poofy heart. I have some mini clothespins like yours. And you have to love felt for crafting. It comes in handy in so many ways. Thanks for sharing! That would be neat on my bathroom countertop.

I think I posted this earlier, but that was the reason for starting my affirmation cards. To focus on one per week (52 cards in a deck). I made a card book for a good friend of mine about the 52 reasons why I love him. I will have to ask him if he still has it. It took a while to create. It has silly stuff...like, "the way you stir my soup clockwise"..and "the fact that you wipe your feet on the mat"  Grin He and I are fishing buddies. He has a girlfriend now, so I don't see him so often  Angry

Thanks gang. This forum is really a pick me up for me, and you all are truly helping on this thread, too. I hope it is helping other members, too. I think we can all use a little extra huggy/squeeze now and again.

I am learning paper piece quilting. Perhaps I will paper piece a top for my heart box that matches my bathroom. That sounds a plan. Something for me. Hmmm.

wendiek, I still have the stuffed heart you sent to me 'just because' I was feeling awfully low. I rehung all of my dotees today on a wall, and tho it is not a dotee, it has a special place of honor on that wall. I remembered how horrible my life was at that time and am so very grateful that things have changed for the better.
My fave affirmations...


As we practice treating others fairly, with love and respect, we ourselves become magnets for love and respect.  (The Courage to Change, page 109)

A single rose can be my garden,  a single friend my world.  (Leo Buscaglia)

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. (Robert Tew)
