What's in my Studio...

Have you entered my Blog Giveaway yet? Enter by noon Pacific Time Friday Oct 25th for a chance to win an art print! 


One of my mentors just shared his notes taken during a luncheon with John Maxwell:

"The secret to growth is in your daily agenda. What you do daily is your life.

There is a tendency to think of big changes that you will do someday. You need to break it down into a daily routine – like a diet. Someone says they want to lose 30 pounds. Then the question is, “What are you doing today to lose a half a pound?” You are not going to lose 30 pounds in one day. If you are not doing something today to help you lose half a pound, you are not going to get to the 30 pounds!

This is how successful people think: Everyday I do things that compound my success."



And what's in my studio today? A bunch of half a pound bits of work that shortly will be the 30 pounds...
Bits of beeswax nature ornaments in progress

I love the birds you used! I have no clue that the project is that you are working on though, but I do like the thought of taking small steps. I try to do that too :) Uniflame - #68

I'm a great believer in "baby steps". Love the mini bird plaques, I'd cover everything in bees wax given half a chance! Hugs. Pam#38
