Welcome Digital Scrapbookers

So glad you found me. Just come and sit a spell, it's time to go exploring. Life is an unscripted journey that if you're lucky enough, you capture it with words and photos.

Thankful

Today I went to one of my favorite blogs and her words had such an impact on me, that I did my freebie around those thoughts it brought forth in my mind.

 Here are the words that had such an impact on me:
 

Giving without expectation of return is another way to help us develop that all important spiritual side of our nature. For those of us who celebrate Christmas, this is the perfect opportunity to practice the art of giving without expecting anything in return. There are certain things we should do just for the inherent goodness attached to doing them. The fact that you have done something right should be the only reward you need in these cases. Once you’ve conditioned your mind this way, the actuality is that you do indeed get something in return. Kevin Sinclair describes these benefits in his article, “Give Without Expecting Return”. When you give without expectation you benefit in the following ways: “a higher state of awareness; the pride that you have given something of powerful, lasting, un-aging value to the world; and, you have made the world in which you live a better place, which can only benefit you even if indirectly and not in any immediate sense.”

Even though what Lisa is talking about is giving,  
my wordart today represents
those that are lucky enough to be the "one" receives this wonderful act.
"Give Without Expecting Return"

They Are Thankful


  So, without delay as well .... I want to thank Snickerdoodle Designs and Kimberkatt Scraps for creating the most wonderful Christmas kit I believe I have ever bought.
 The kit is called "Holiday Hoopla" and got the ENTIRE SET!!!!
You can find this kit yourself at: www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com.
And, this kit can be found on the designers sites also.
I am just so in love with this kit .....
so don't be surprised
 if I use it in a number of my last freebies for
the Christmas Season.


Hugs everyone, Sue

My goodness. I'm so flattered that you created a design based on a concept I presented in my blog. I'm kinda speechless. You know that doesn't happen often so thank you on SO MANY different levels.

Hugs,
Lisa
