Some Inspiration for Us All

Some Inspiration

Peace Rose with When Nothing is Sure, Everything is Possible inspirational quoteSorry to have disappeared on you.  Life has been a whirlwind.
Does life get away from you sometimes? Your schedule completely obliterated by other pressing matters?
Yeah, me too.   So I need a few reminders to keep positive and upbeat and not let the darkness of frustration creep in.Princess Diana Rose Inspriational Quote  It is so nice to have a quiet morning to just breathe.  I love the quiet of early Sunday mornings, everyone else in the neighborhood seems to sleep in. No hustle bustle of the neighbors leaving for work.
It is no longer light by 6 am as it was in June and July.  I miss being able to walk through my garden with my first cup of coffee.  Here it is after 6 already and it is still quite dark.  Sniff.  I can hear a hawk calling through my open window and other scurrying sounds of nature waking up so I know the sun will be up soon.   I never lose. Either I win or I learn. FlowerPatchFarmhouse.com So what good things happened this week?  I did get a custom sign done for a customer.  It turned out better than the customer expected and she was overjoyed when she received it. She wanted bright and she got bright!
Hand Painted Serenity Prayer art, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comAll that lettering was a pain in the pa-toot, I do it with a brush.  I have tried paint pens but I have yet to find any that are smooth and easy.  If you know of any, please let me know.

Have you tried Periscope yet?  I have been practicing and I am finding it quite addicting.  I think I find it so appealing as I can see its potential and it is just plain fun.  If you decide to hop on then look me up my handle is @FlowerPatchPam
Forget the Days Troubles quoteAs promised I have also been working on some new videos to make into DVD’s of my painting tutorials.   I certainly hope to have my first one available next week sometime. It has been a bit more challenging than I had anticipated.  Snafu’s keep occurring but I shall press on and learn how to create the DVD’s smoothly and efficiently.
This is the design I work on through this first DVD.
How to Paint Yellow roses dvd from FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comYellow roses are a bit tricky.  I take you step by step on building the roses and how each one is really a bit different.
Don't wait for people to be kind, inspiration, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comI have been doing some Fall garden clean up and moving of plants.  It is a little early for some of it but with not watering many areas of my extensive garden because of the drought many of perennials have gone to seed early.
Though they are drought tolerant they will perform longer with watering and that just did not happen this year for obvious reasons.

Happy Sunday or whatever day you read this!

Thank you for the gracious words. Life does get hectic for everyone. Something to remember when I'm whirling away in my storm. Enjoy the beauty and peace in your garden today.

Whirling away in the storm is a good description. I have been spending a good portion of time in my garden this week and it does have the soothing effect I need. Just what the Dr. ordered. :)

Dear Pamela, I know the sadness that comes when the days get shorter and the night and darkness gets longer. That's when God puts our beautiful flowers asleep for awhile to get renewed for the next season. It is all so the time He gives us the beautiful fall leaves to enjoy. I don't like the cold weather, but when I see that first snow that covers the trees and ground, and all is still, it just takes your breath away! This is the time to renew your spirit and wait on the Lord. He will get you through all those difficult and overwhelming times. Just like He does are beautiful flowers. Then when the earth starts to warm, and you are able to take your first cup of coffee out to check on things, there they are! Peeking through the ground, our beautiful flowers are showing their heads, ready to start the new season, refreshed and renewed. Just like we should be. God is good. So, to let you know that we also get depressed that things have to change. Everything happens for a reason. We do look forward to Your beautiful flowers. They do help us to get thru the harsh winter, giving us hope for the Spring to come. Thank you for sharing you beautiful paintings and your Inspiring Blog, I look forward to them. You are in my prayers, Donna

Thank you, Donna for your sweet words. I try to keep my garden heart happy with getting an early start in the winter indoors. New seeds, new varieties and inspiring ideas of what to change in the garden. May and June are when I finally get to start back in the garden, here it is usually still snowing in April. Painting does keep my sane in the colder, drabber months. Now I am starting to look forward to more time doing that as my garden winds down for the season.

The roses are beautiful especially the painted yellow ones. You inspire me to get my brushes out. Hugs to you.
