52CP37: White Space

As I mentioned last night, this has been quite a week. Last week was quite a week. There seems to be a developing/recurring pattern. The Universe is trying to tell me something. Stephanie (bless her forever!) has been the "messenger of the angels" this week, and has sent me exactly the information I needed to hear!

In 52CP26 (July 4th), I discussed "The Space Between", and included the concept of "white space" as part of that discussion. The information Steph sent was a link to the perfect article expanding on the idea of "white space" in our lives, why it's important, and how to go about achieving it.

I'm particularly grateful for this article because my life is not really my own in some aspects right now. Anyone who has been a caretaker for elderly and/or invalid individuals knows that "me" time is at a high premium. Add in full-time employment and domestic duties, and there you have it! Mulling over and implementing the ideas in this article will be helpful - possibly life- (or at least sanity-) saving! Thank you, Steph! Here's the link: Life's Missing White Space.

For my project, I chose to go very literal with the idea of white space:

Stamp: Close To My Heart For Every Occasion; Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Paper: Close To My Heart White Daisy; Accessories: Prima and unknown flowers, ribbon, bling brad, Cuttlebug floral fantasy embossing folder

That's a thank you card for all of you! You really have no idea how much I appreciate each of you! Have a great week, and try to carve out some white space for yourself! I'm gonna give it a shot, and then I'll report back, k? Meanwhile, here's Mr. Linky:
