Over on Tracy Weinzapfel's blog there is a monthly creative dare. This month's is gratitude. 

I thought I'd dust off the time-lapse camera and make a little video of this page. That means that I vaguely plan what I'm going to do on the page, gather what I need, and then work swiftly to make the page in one hit because there's no pause button. It's always a bit of a challenge :)

Being thankful is a gift we can grow in. 
It is possible to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. 
Look for the things to be thankful for in each and every situation. 
Sometimes they aren't immediately obvious, like when you're in a hurry and the line at the supermarket is moving slowly. Then you can be thankful for the opportunity to grow in patience :)

Give it a try. 

Before you know it, you'll be living a life of gratitude.

As an aside, I've come into possession of a pile of vintage music papers circa 1920-1950, ideal for collage or background interest. If you'd like to share in the bounty, just email me your address (tracywoodsford@gmail.com) and I'll send some off to you :)

Have a thankful day!
