Pomegrante Martini and Words to Ponder ....

This was one of two entries that I sent to Making Memories for their Ellen and Oprah Birthday Contest. I found out that Pomegrante Martini's are Oprah's FAVorites. Since this was back in January 2007, there was no Purely Pomegrante....I used Rose Red. This is based around the Pomegranate Martini recipe via Rachael Ray that they made on one of Oprah's shows. I printed out the recipe on a business card and put it in the kraft bag...
Stamps: Stampin' Up Litte Shapes & Paisley Print, 7 Gypsies celebrate Paper: Stampin' Up Rose Red,misc kraft Ink: Stampin' Up Rose red, chestnut roan chalk Accessories: sakura glue pen, glitter, brown micro tip pen, kraft bag, M's $1 ribbon, bling, word window punch, business card

Another great Higher Awareness that I want to share.

Live now

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives."
-- Annie Dillard

We lose the power of the moment because we're so rarely in it. We're reliving the past or speculating about the future. We continue to believe that tomorrow's the day when I'll be more capable, more wealthy, more fit and more loving. Meanwhile, I'm just putting in time, dreaming of better things but not making any concrete move to realize them.

When you find yourself thinking of the future or the past, bring your awareness into the present moment. Really experience how you feel and what’s happening around you, without judgment. If we can treasure each moment, our lives will be rich, no matter what we have accomplished.

"Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever."
-- Horace Mann

"If, before going to bed every night, you will tear a page from the calendar, and remark, 'there goes another day of my life, never to return,' you will become time conscious."
-- A. B. Zu Tavern
