“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are”

e.e. cummings

Be who you are meant to be. Don’t let others tell you who you are. Don’t let others label you. You are the only one that knows what you are capable of, what you hold inside, where your genius lies. Have courage, it isn’t easy to grow up, it isn’t easy to live. Life is hard, that’s what makes it so amazing when you push through those barriers and truly live the life that is authentically you.

    Maria, What day will you be featured in the handmade holiday auction? I have a work event but I don’t want to miss your items!

    Thanks, Cindy

    PS—this is gorgeous! Wish I could afford it!
