quote of the month

Invention and discovery emanate from being able to try seemingly wild possibilities and work in the unknown; to be comfortable being wrong before being right; to live in the world as a keen observer, with an openness to experiences and ideas…
~Peter Sims

My Monthly Musing 
Adventure. Discovery. Magic.

Summer is almost upon us, and for me summer equals adventure. Good bad or indifferent, with every adventure comes insight and discovery, and it doesn�t seem to matter whether your adventure takes you just outside your door, or around the other side of the world. It gives us the chance to take in all there is to see and to really begin to notice everything around us as if for the first time.

I am writing to you while on a visit to my old stomping grounds in Southern California. The universe seemed to tug at my heartstrings to tell me I was to be here at is time, and I am happy to report having a great time revisiting things from my years of living here. �Simple things, near and dear, some have changed others remained the same, but all bringing a sense of discovery and magic.

During past summers the things I have found have made me feel the magic of everyday things; and to be over the moon excited to slow down and take in those opportunities we get to go beyond the everyday to amazing new sights and places.

So whether you travel to new or old places, take some time to wander through all that is around you, for I wish for you grand discoveries and magic in those special moments.

XOXO ~Rose

It was fun to drop in for a visit to my California design group. This week it desconstructed printing. See some past fun playdates.
