Inspiration Scallop


This is a little something I put together for a customer who wanted something inspirational to send to her daughter in college. She orders from me often and frankly, I'm starting to run out of ideas! She has been doing this for the last three years! It gets harder and harder to "wow" her... In trying to think of something a little unusual, I thought that this would be something that could be hung from a bulletin board, etc... I thought a collage style might be fun. The woman holding the umbrella is a stamp that I bought in someones Etsy Shop a while back. I cut it out to add it to the collage. This poem says it all perfectly and acutally inspires me each time I read it. My customer really liked it which is what really mattered. (sigh)

She Who Has a Great Attitude

The way she sees it,
If you want rainbows,
You gotta have rain.
So she goes out into the storm
Looking for puddles to play in.
She brightens up every dark place.
She finds joy in the journey.
And just about everything
makes her laugh!
For her, laughter in the face of adversity
is the finest sound there is!
She has a great attitude!
