This is a poem about true love and sacrifice.
It is actually the second of two that I wrote but the first one had some imperfections that appeared after printing I’m not happy with.
The photo with the frame really doesn’t do it justice. I will edit the photo later.
It can be purchased from my Etsy Shop.
Valentines Day is next month and will be here before you know it. If you haven’t noticed the link to my CafePress store is gone from my sidebar and that is because I have closed it.
I’m focusing my efforts now into my Etsy Shop which is now open. I currently have three items and working on another as of this moment but stopped so I could get this message out. I will do my best to keep you updated when new items are added. I will add a link to my Etsy Shop on the sidebar soon.
As mentioned earlier, Valentines Day is approaching and many of you are familiar with The Bottomless Heart I designed a couple of years ago. That is the first card in my shop for Valentines Day but can be given for other occasions as well such as anniversary, birthday or just because.
I made some changes from the original design which are more simplistic. It still features the story line behind the design of the heart which is your expression of love and time shared together, with the one you love.
Here is a photo of the card’s front. Please visit my Etsy Shop to see the rest.
I’m still at it as far as my clocks are concerned and my latest is a custom design for a co-worker, Ken who bought it for his uncle who is a Minnesota Vikings fan.
Ken wanted to know if I could do an official NFL design and I told him that was not possible because of copyrights and licensing. I told him I could come up with something I think he would like.
After the initial design was complete I sent it to him to see what he thought and what he would like to change. All he wanted changed was moving a few things around. He was totally happy with the design itself.
I wanted to get some feedback on the finished product so I took it to work and everyone that saw it was really pleased with it. Nothing definite but I may have two more orders coming because they liked what they saw.
I know everyone won’t like it but I am happy with the response I got so far.
The clock face on this one is 8.5 x 11 landscape.

Hello everyone and thank you for your interest in the series
A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry
This is number 4 in the series and another photograph by Daniel Plumer
What stands out for me in this photo?…the fire and ice look, each giving the other their due respect in opposites, creating a union of beauty.
A fire travels above the cool quench below in sight
Consuming not to destroy, but to give wondrous light
The coolness below touched not by its red hot glare
Seems they two admonish, their beauty declared
Sometimes I think I have to justify being critical about what I do or want to do to achieve the goals I have set. It has not been easy for me to push forward to reach for that gold ring as the wheel goes around.
I think of the setbacks and how hard it has been for me to regroup, breath, forgive AND forget. It is so hard to keep a frame of mind to NOT let things keep me from accomplishing what I know I am capable of doing. It is so easy to listen to that voice telling me to give up, quit, it’s not worth it, OR that it can’t be done. Telling me that no one really cares or wants what I have to offer.
Sometimes I start feeling and believing that. I do want to stop and I do hear myself say those words, breathing sighs of discouragement.
Yes it is easy to drop it all after losing so much in preparing for this moment in my life…when just a few short years ago I was tool ready and now starting from scratch.
I could let these emotions fester like a sore and destroy me, but then I’m asked if I still make Shadowbox Clocks and I say yes and now find myself custom designing an 8 x 8.
I do have a lot of things going on and I do intend to keep moving on and NOT giving up.
Yes I am hard on myself at times but it’s a good thing. As much as I would like to post on a regular basis, I’s getting busy for me and it may get quiet here, but…
