Music is the beat of a drum that keeps time with our emotions. ~Shannon L. Alder I don’t know about you, but I have come to welcome this. Not the idea of a pandemic, but this quiet peace and calmness in our home. I often think that our lives are a whirlwind of melodies and rhythms competing with one another to such a fast tempo that doesn’t stop unless from sheer exhaustion from the hustle and bustle of the day. At first, everyone was anxious and angry to be confined, but now adjusting to the new tempo, I’ve had the time to enjoy my children’s conversation and company again. Their faces are no longer completely buried in their phones and we’ve begun to work on a puzzle. It’s been nice to see them well rested and no stress from tests. I’m enjoying my moment at this new tempo. The melody and rhythmic pace is soothing and beautiful for now. I’m sad that it took this extreme method for it to happen, but my emotions are adapting to the slower steady beat of the drum. May you all be blessed to stay healthy and try to find your own steady beat during this unsteady time. #coronavirus2020 #drumbeatoflife #emotions #quilling #hardships #positivevibes #positiveenergy #washyourhands

Remember the post from Valentines where I quilled the word love with the sign language in it? Well, I used my @excelblades to cut it out and then encased it in resin and glitter. I went a wee bit crazy with the glitter (I just can’t help myself) but it still turned out pretty cool for a coaster. Enjoy your weekend! Share the love…..💞💖💞 #lakemaryart #resinart #resincoaster #quilling #quilledpaperart #loveart #love #glitteraddict #paperquilling #quilledcreactions #quilledesigns #excel
