The illustration for this entry is the paper topper from a jar of Golden Fig & Lemon Jam. It will be a nice reminder of our visit to New Canaan Farms in Dripping Springs, Texas where we taste-tested jams, salsas, and other condiments that my sister plans to sell in her restaurant in Pflugerville ("Granny's Kitchen" on Pecan Street.)
Agneta Westman on a group that I belong to, suggested that every day you should record something you consider as being GOOD about yourself; then record THANKS for whatever was positive during the day; and last ask for HELP in preparing for tomorrow. The first one helps you recognize your strengths; the second makes you see the positives in life; and the third causes you to think about what is troubling you and aids in planning a solution.
I thought this was a great idea. Here are the pages that I was inspired to create with this concept in mind. Now, if I can just remember to do it each day, I believe it will have a positive influence on me.

Post-It notes were used to mask the spaces for each day, and then I rolled on red acrylic paint with a sponge brayer. The blue stripes were applied using a sponge rectangle since the brayer wouldn't get into the gutter. The date was done with rubber stamp letters and numerals from a "Words&Crafts" set, using white pigment ink and then heat embossing.
