You know when you have that feeling that you’re on the right track with something you’re doing, with how you’re life is going? That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. I’m so grateful because the times I haven’t felt that way are so disconcerting — like walking in the dark. I’ve been walking with light — knowing that I’m doing what I should be doing. I’ve been truly following my North Star.
When I felt it was time to come up with a holiday project and I started sketching ideas and the star kept coming up over and over again. Was it a reaffirming sign? I don’t know. But it felt right.
The North Star Shadow Gift Box collection includes two cards, a hang tag, and a letter-sized printable pattern surprise. I’m still working on getting the large North Star box (seen below) set up for the shop.
It feels like I got my paper making groove back. After a crazy busy summer, I finally feel a little more ‘normal’ when I get home and with enough energy to tackle something creative. I think I’m just more of a fall/spring type of person. The summer just kicks me! Funny that I live in a city where it seems like it’s summer for 80% of the year – ha!
I hope you enjoy this collection and the little quote I found about just being you…
“The way to find your own North Star is not to think or feel your way forward but to dissolve the thoughts and feeling that make you miserable. You don’t have to learn your destiny–you already know it; you just have to unlearn the thoughts that blind you to what you know.”
