Today was a normal gloomy day in Portland. The clouds have officially moved in and they had been hanging pretty low today. I was in a gloom myself. I just felt heavy, and I was hating it. I didnt want to give in to it, I didnt want to give in to the gloom. So when I got home, I pulled out my craft box. I was going to create my way out of this gloom. I decided to make a necklace. I have had this beautiful tank top for years now that I have never been able to get rid of. It doesnt fit me anymore, but I just love it. So I decided to make a necklace out of it. Just added some additional material and some feathers! It is beautiful and I love it.
“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
