"Whatever Is" Free Download

Alright, so these verses have been lovingly smacking me in the face recently. It's silly how often I miss opportunities to rejoice and be grateful because I'm focused on the very few things that aren't necessarily working out like I want them to. Funny how, the more you focus on your worries, the bigger and more insurmountable they seem to be. Silly worry.
(click on image above for the larger version then right click or drag to your desktop to save)

So I decided to take this little sketch I did in my sketchbook and color it really pretty like ; ) and share it with the rest of you. It's for making a list of some of those true, noble, right, pure, lovely things all around us that we tend to forget. Print it out and stick it on the fridge next to your grocery list or your to-do list. Tape it to your mirror. Tape it to your forehead. Laminate it so you can write and re-write on it often.
I'm thinking I'll make one for boys too since I've got a 5-year-old who also sometimes needs to be reminded that falling off his bike once or only getting 3 bedtime stories instead of 4 does NOT constitute "the baddest day ever!!" ; ) If I do, I'll share it here!

So print the image, email it, blog it, link to it, whatever! Just don't sell it or claim it's yours. : )

Peace,
Arian

Wow, thanks so much! I've been following you for a while, and I love your art... have you ever thought about making digital "stamps" for papercrafters to use? I think your work would be very marketable to stampers like me!

Thank you for your lovely post. I too have been dwelling on these verses(you can read about it http://hollyspinner.wordpress.com/2010/04/05/whatever/). I am going to print out your art and hang it on the wall. I think I need the reminder.

Found this via Kim @ EverythingEtsy.com. What a great, great, great printable! Thank you for sharing it. I've been focused on these verses for the last couple of months (my mother passed away in May after a long battle with cancer) and they have been what kept me from going a bit crazy. I've written them out but not anywhere nearly as cute! Thanks again.
