Message Boards and quotes

My memory is awful.  There, I said it.  I don't remember faces, names, movies, actors, songs, and I frequently read books twice before I realize I've read it before.  A poor memory does not go well with someone who loves quotes.  Inspirational quotes and Bible verses often help me stay focused and not become the guest of honor at my pity party.  I write them down on scraps of paper and in notebooks, which I have scattered all over.  The downfall to this is that the quote or verse that I want to focus on isn't in plain sight.  So, I decided to try my hand at making a message board that is fun and beautiful so it can do double duty as a piece of art.

These have a lot of layers and texture.  You can reach out and touch them.  The cords/ribbons/strings are removable.  I have one that I think I will hang up as a picture for a while and then transform it back into a message board.

With or without a quote or picture, this is fun.

Count The Happies!  I will be using this sentiment on other paintings.  Just reading it makes me happy.

How often does the daily chores take over life?  Sometimes I forget to do just what this message board says - Take Time To Relax & Enjoy Life.
