I stumbled across this pretty quote from Oscar Wilde during one of my adventures through Pinterest Land.
I have some amazing friends. I have friends who can hit the tennis ball with accuracy and speed. Me? Not so much. I have friends that can recite the nutritional value of every herb and plant. Is it moldy? Past expiration date? No? Then I’m good. I have friends that look like they’ve just walked out of a fashion magazine on their “bummy” days. You mean I shouldn’t go out in public in my pj pants and a t-shirt? I have friends that can recite the bible….book, chapter and verse…for any occasion. Unfortunately for anyone who might get a bible quote from me will hear “Well, I remember it going something like this….and it was said by some guy, maybe his name was Steve? Or Alan or Ronald.” I get the gist of it right and the spirit of the passage, just not the details.
Anyway, slowly, but surely, I am learning to love me exactly the way God made me. I will never be able to be whomever it is that I admire at that moment, but I can be me. I thought this particular photo was something that I could recreate for my wall.
I used my quilting ruler to square up my slats on the back of the piece. I added about a half an inch around all the sides to give some place to put the tiles. Duct tape was my handy dandy adhesion for the slats.
