ZVA Bling!!

If you haven't discovered all the gorgeous ZVA goodies Beth has in the store, then you're really missing out. It can be found HERE.

I also wanted to share a LO I made using some bling I got at Scraptacular. The pp is actually vintage Pink Paislee...uh "Vintage Moon" that is LOL And the pretty pearl brads and the black velvet flowers are Creative Charms.

The journaling is a poem by John Burroughs titled "Waiting" - I managed to fit most of it in, but did cut out one stanza:
SERENE, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, or tide, or sea;
I rave no more ’gainst time or fate,
For, lo! my own shall come to me.

I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.

Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it has sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.

The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight.

The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.
