Have your cake and Eat it too!



Hi Everyone...

I am finally feeling a bit more energized...so I wanted to post a new illustration here and share a few quotes I just read....

I created this special cake lady ....

she is titled...

"Have your cake and eat it too"

She would love to share her cake with all the "sweet" visitors to my blog...so enjoy!



I just read these 2 quotes today....




  • "There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way." Author Unknown

  • "We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them." Kahlil Gibran

It made me take a moment to think about life and my art truly makes me happy and also makes me feel like I am living my life in my own way....I will also make a conscious effort to choose my joys and sorrows more wisely....I think we all worry way too much about the little things....we should have our cake and eat it too!!!!!!!!!



Hugs and thanks for popping by...

Hugs
Diana

True, so true! We all need to live our own life the way it makes us happy. The challenge is in finding the way with all the great distractions life throws at us.
Great message and a great lady too. This is my favorite kind of cake...no calories !!! Thanks for making it !!

Beautiful, Diana!

Our local ice cream shop has this quote hanging on the wall:

Life's too short, so eat dessert first.

:-)

Diana Evans said...

that is a great quote Jennifer...I once heard a story about this lady who always ordered dessert when she went out....I will have to find that story...it was a good one...

Emily said...

cute! i want a piece. :D

soulbrush said...

like jennifer's icecream shop quote best...having your cake and eating it always seemed to have a negative connotation to me...like 'you want your cake and eat it! you don't want much do you?'
so i'll stick with jennifer's one!
