It's what you do, my name and fun project

- This barrel marking the entrance drive to a men's recovery shelter sponsored by a printing client.  It made me smile, so I call that a good thing.

- Finding the little snowlady ornament with my name on it on the Christmas tree at work.

- Uttering words I could have never predicted I would say in conjunction with a printing project, "I would think that vampires would not care for a foil stamp treatment that is too shiny." Yes - that is a teaser. An explanation to come later.

I think LIVING you life is an excellent credo. Live YOUR life, not someone else's. LIVE your life, don't merely exist. Can't wait for the rest of the story. :)

Have a great day--that barrel is a good start!

Throw away the garbage and "Live your life". Good symbolism for the entrance to a men's recovery shelter.

Awesome to find a little dab of respect in the workplace.

I'm making a lot of guesses and eagerly await the "rest of the story". Wonder if my imagination is even close?

happygirl -

Someone gave me some advice long ago and it's what I base everything on: "You are responsible for your own happiness." So I love this credo, "Live your life." It's what you do.

Sage -

You have a great day, too, my friend. I'm glad I could be a part of getting your day off to a good start.

Granny Annie -

That's exactly it. Love that.

Hint - it's associated with something that is filmed in Atlanta. That's a big hint. :)

I'm dying to know the story on that last one!

Lynn said...

Mama Zen -

It's rumored that you are Queen of the Vampires, so I guess you would be curious. :)

Lance said...

I love that barrel!!!!

TALON said...

Nice advice! I agree - we have the choice on how to feel about how we live and if we don' like how we feel right now, we have the power to change that, too.

I don't know much about vampires or their tastes, but it sounds totally intriguing!

Louvregirl said...

Wow Lynn. You've got me wondering just what you meant by your last entry!
And yes, this is so important:
"...so I call that a good thing."

LL Cool Joe said...

Love the barrel.

Aww how cool to find your name on an ornament.


Looking forward to hearing more about the last story!

Fireblossom said...

Or sparkly. Sparkly is not good.

Riot Kitty said...

I love the teaser! And now I want to know the rest of the story.

I guess drug use is about avioding reality tho-
We have no tree at work- n have to work Xmas Day. I'll be bringing in some cheap candy which is all the workers will get for holiday related stuff. We work for Scrooge.

"Bright light! Argh!- No reflection! I'm melting..." (Buffy? The Count on Sesame Street? Grim?)

Lynn said...

Lance -

Yes - it's wonderful, isn't it?

Talon -

I hope to never encounter any actual real vampires. :)

lg -

Life is just so much better when I look at it through positive eyes. :)

Joe -

Thank you and more to come.

Lynn said...

FB -

Or too much light!

Riot Kitty -

More to come!

Cloudia -

Mahalo!

Snaggle -

I like candy whether it's cheap or expensive, so that's nice you are doing that.

None of the above. More to come! :)
