"People are like sewing boxes, it's what's inside that counts."
- Trisha Brink
I think you've all sort of figured out by now I'm a woman who loves color....right?
This little sewing box I've got for sale right now over at
got me thinking.....
It's interesting how we sometimes have a difficult time showing our
No....I'm not talking about actual colors...but more sincerely
we really are.
If there's one thing I dislike when I meet folks is:
someone who is
You know what I mean?
I'm not talking about any one person here
( relax all my near and dear friends and recent aquaintances :)
It's just those folks who pretend to care, but are too wrapped up in themselves to actually notice you.
B O O M!!!
There it was....the inescapable thought that I may have been that person to someone else!??!?!
OH HORROR OF ALL HORRORS!!!
( Let me just insert here the apology I owe you if I have been that person to you....I am mortified!)
I have found that if I want to be treated in a certain way,
then it makes perfect sense to treat others in that way too.
Boy oh Boy....I DO have alot of work to do though!
I am horribly guilty of not being fake, but more often than not,
OVERLY PASSIONATE & OPINIONATED
which generally freaks people out as well!
( Just remember, God isn't finished with me yet. :)
What am I really trying to say here???
I'm not really sure either.
I do know this:
I need to find a happy medium & balance.
Somewhere between fake and over-do-i-nate.

As I said before...
People are like sewing boxes, it's what's inside that counts.
I like people
(as well as sewing boxes)
to be real.
So let's not judge sewing boxes
( or people )
by what's on the outside
(or by the first impression either!)
let's come to the conclusion as to a person's character by opening them up through time and conversation...
...and therefore....by what's on the inside...
a soft, pink, cushy place where the keys to creativity live with sometimes pokey pins and needles.
( I will be working right along side of you on this....)
