January Kit - work of heART

I have subscribed in the monthly kits of Lasting Impression and I have never been disappointed with their kits. 

I just made the kit for January 2013. 

 I can say the kit is value for money.

Iris Babao-Uy  is so awesome in putting together product from different lines and making them all come together. 

She designs the pages for the kit each month.


Full Disclosure: I wrote this blog post myself, and it expresses my own opinions.

 i attended the Webster's Park Drive class of Iris Babao-Uy, a certified instructor at Lasting Impression yesterday.  I learned new techniques again and I am so happy.

Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess

Abbess Roding, Essex
Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every opportunity.

Release me from the idea that I must straighten out other peoples' affairs. With my immense treasure of experience and wisdom, it seems a pity not to let everybody partake of it. But thou knowest, Lord, that in the end I will need a few friends.

Keep me from the recital of endless details; give me wings to get to the point.

Grant me the patience to listen to the complaints of others; help me to endure them with charity. But seal my lips on my own aches and pains -- they increase with the increasing years and my inclination to recount them is also increasing.

I will not ask thee for improved memory, only for a little more humility and less self-assurance when my own memory doesn't agree with that of others. Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be wrong.

Keep me reasonably gentle. I do not have the ambition to become a saint -- it is so hard to live with some of them -- but a harsh old person is one of the devil's masterpieces.

Make me sympathetic without being sentimental, helpful but not bossy. Let me discover merits where I had not expected them, and talents in people whom I had not thought to possess any. And, Lord, give me the grace to tell them so. Amen
