Don't Worry...

if you...


but don't forget...

To must row, think good thoughts and shine
but not necessarily in that order.

I need help.
I thought my happy round things looked like ring doughnuts
and I prefer jam doughnuts so I gave them some jam,
metaphorically speaking, of course.

I gave them a dangley thing each but now I'm not sure.

Have I over done it? 
Do they look better dangle-less?

Sometimes I just feel like I'm going round in circles.

Well, that's easy for you to say.

Crafty ways cause dangley dilemmas.

  1. Hello Ethel ... well I am rowing, thinking good thoughts, but not too sure if I am shining ... YET!!! I love your verses in the frames, I love having things like that around me as a reminder to be positive in life :-)
    Now just to thoroughly confuse you ... I LOVE the handmade heart with the yo yo flower in your 2nd circle, but still not too sure about the reindeer in the first one !!! Sorry not much help but I think your round doughnuts are just great anyway :-) Julie x0x

    1. Yes, I thought so too, just needed another crafty mind. thanks xx

  2. Think I like them better without although the reindeer is cute. You're right crafting does bring up lots of dilemmas. Should you or shouldn't you ! a perennial problem we all face. Loved your verses and the sentiments. Jacqui x

    1. Thanks, knowing when to stop is my problem! xx

    1. Yes, Bambi gets the chop...thanks. xx

  5. Ethel my bloggy friend take out the reindeer, the others are fab because they are the same as the outside...if you know what i mean? and although i am not a fan of matching things I do believe the same inner should reflect the outer and vice the reindeer goes? are you with me so far....? i do love the reindeer just not with my doughnuts xxxxxx
