My life is one long curve, full of turning points. Pierre Elliott Trudeau
It seems that for several of us, life is in a state of change at the moment. We may be at our turning point or still meandering through changes, both good and not so good. When we're caught up in our experiences, they can seem all-consuming, but that's why I like the quote above as it helps me to see the big picture!
I hope everyone is having a good mid-year and as the children return to school, and the seasons start to think about changing again, we will probably be changing some of the things we do as well. Routines change, jobs may change, our diet may change, new habits may be started, new family members born, the list goes on! Of course it's great to record the changes in our lives both for the future, but also as a tool for ourselves to see our own progress, and here at Hummie's World we have lots of resources to help you do just that! Join a class, learn something new, or take a challenge and have a page you may never have made otherwise! Most of all, have a fun and fulfilling time!

Here is a thread linking to a resource for verses for cards - some of us are thinking about making our own Christmas cards already and there is some great inspiration here! Lots of other themes available as well of course, just in case anyone else might be wanting a 'welcome baby' verse for example!
Just in case you'd like some help actually making the card, scroll down the links on my blog and click on 'Creating Custom card Tutorial' - so useful and straightforward to follow!
