Do Something Creative Every Day!

I have this sentiment in vinyl on my wall.  It's my reminder!  Why?  Because everyday life seems to get in the way.  Being creative, even for 10 - 15 minutes, helps to soothe and re-focus me.

Anyone else like that?

This stamp set is just so super awesome AND has the copyright stamp to use for the Angel Policy.
