Friday Affirmations — Do Small Things…

Do small things with great love — I found this quote in a pack of stick on words by Heidi Swapp that I thought was just great.  Small things, tiny acts, miniscule bits, things that don’t require a big commitment but can be so powerful all the same, maybe even more so because they are subtle.  I used it to create my page for Lifebook 2013 from a Christy Tomlinson tutorial.  Thought you might all enjoy it as well.  What small thing did you do today that impacted someone’s life?  Maybe it was as simple as smiling, or saying hello.  I know that I feel differently when I am acknowledged, don’t you?  Do small things with great love…I need to keep that in mind every day…

    Awe Corinne, what a stunning page, I love it. You have created a beautiful depth and texture in your glorious background and what a fab quote to finish it off with.
    Huge hugs x

    I love that quote too. Beatuful interpretation of Christy’s lesson. Loving all the splatters, and also the drawn leaves against the painterly-ness of the background and texture of the flowers. I’m off to do a small thing – make Freddie his coffee – with great love!

    Love this piece of work Corrine! The colors, texture, message….
    I think (and I could be wrong) that the quote is part of a longer quote from Mother Theresa….which of course escapes me now.
    I remember those words sticking with me because they are so relevant.

    Lovely quote & a piece full of excitement! I also love your ‘break & enter’ line, I normally use a big brush worth of color wash but you think a little dot or a kiss (hehe) will do it? I’ll give it a go. 😉
