Share the Joy: It's Summer!

Image
It’s summer. In my book, that’s reason enough for JOY.




What’s your JOY source?


To play along,
1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.
2. Capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into the Mr. Linky box along with your name. 3. Then click the NEXT box (or the link) to choose an image from the post to hook to Mr. Linky's list so that people are enticed to visit your blog. If you just can't get it to work, send me the info and I'll try to link it for you. 4. Visit other players -- as many as possible --

The Blue Hour

Here’s my first effort from Vivienne McMaster’s Montage course on video-making.
Unfortunately, I’m having trouble retrieving my smartphone videos, so this one is a photo video.
Enjoy!

Postcards from Paradise: King Tut

Image
Can I share with you a trip through time?


Here's a glimpse of some of 

the artifacts of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun,


discovered by Howard Carter in 1922 in Tut’s tomb

on the floor of the Valley of the Kings.


Tutankhamun was born about 1341 BC


and died a short 18 years later in 1323 BC.


He was a pharaoh of the 18th dynasty,


son of the pharaoh Akhenaten.


The exhibition of antiquities is by National Geographic.


Share the Joy: Abundance

Image
There’s obviously too much going on in my life.


Wednesday slipped by without me knowing it.

Summer’s begun and I’m still back in early spring. How does that happen?



Anyway, it’s time to SHARE THE JOY.

Leave them a comment, because everyone enJOYS getting positive feedback.


Hidden Message

Image
As you can see, I’ve been at it again. In this one, there’s a hidden message. . . Well, at least obscured. Will you heed it?




Share the Joy: Family

Image
Life’s been a bit of a circus this week. I’m about to leave for a four-day spree of JOY with my mom, her sisters, and various cousins. I was so focused on preparations for leaving that I almost forgot to Share the Joy with you.


I’d say that has me feeling like a dumb blonde, except I’ve changed my hair color.
How are you sharing your Joy this week?

Learning to Take Credit for Jobs Well Done

Image
One thing I’m trying to learn to do is celebrate my accomplishments instead of saying, “Ah shucks, no big deal.”
So, all humility aside, My “What Do Women Want?” piece



Won second place in the House of Set-acular Sets Visual Journal competition.
I'm proud of myself - for entering for winning but most of all, for finding a way to include fun  and creative expression in every day.

Well? What Do You Have to Say for Yourself?

Image
Sometimes we choose to live lives that are a thousand times too small for us. 
We wear a cloak of invisibility.  We let others bask in the limelight we've earned.



Do you quicken when you hear these words?  Feel them burn you like a branding iron?  

You can choose anew when you acknowledge that it is, after all, your choice.
