playing with pencils

i won’t muddle this post with too many words.  suffice it to say i’ve been enjoying lovely moments at my desk these past few days…sunshine streaming through my window, a rainbow of pencils at the ready, my notebook of favorite quotes.

last month i wrote about a favorite quote of mine written on a little piece of paper, propped up on my desk.  i wrote about how i love seeing this everyday, love that i always pause a moment to read the note, love that i *stop*.  i asked if any of you might like an inspirational quote note to prop on your desk, tuck into your wallet, tape to your mirror.

so in between meals and mattress shopping and homeschool lessons, colors and words have found their way onto paper.  and these quote notes will soon find their way into the mailboxes of some of you dear readers.  i have enjoyed these mini creative retreats at my desk.  i’m thinking i need to schedule more of them…color, words, desk, sunshine…color, words, desk, sunshine…repeat.

sending a little love your way, m

  1. Michelle,

    I got my sweet quote in the mail today! Thank you so much. It was so nice to come home from a long day and find a beautifully hand-written letter for me in the mail. And you know what??… the quote is perfect. It’s just what I needed to hear. I’m taping it to the wall above my desk so that I can see it every day.

    Thank you,

  2. Dear Michelle! How happy I was to see on Instagram your blog address, and here I am. It’s lovely! I look forward to visiting often.
    I have of late noticed this amazing connection to certain people on Instagram, the sweetness and mystery of the experience, not knowing, but knowing… you have been one of these people, thank you.
