1-18: Community [whoops] FRIDAY

You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too. No, I think there was too rigid a pattern. You came out of an education and are supposed to know your vocation. Your vocation is fixed, and maybe ten years later you find you are not a teacher anymore or you’re not a painter anymore. It may happen. It has happened. I mean Gauguin decided at a certain point he wasn’t a banker anymore; he was a painter. And so he walked away from banking. I think we have a right to change course. But society is the one that keeps demanding that we fit in and not disturb things. They would like you to fit in right away so that things work now. ― Anaïs Nin

I screwed up and got all involved with something and realized much too late that I hadn’t put together a Community Thursday post! FAIL. So tonight’s post will be Pinterest-heavy, but I’ve been collecting some great pins, so it’s not all bad. 😉

I could have used this instruction guideline a couple of weeks ago. Ah well, now I have it and I’m making sure you do, too.

Speaking of Valentines… the text is in Portuguese, but really this is pretty simple stuff, as the text will assure you. In Portuguese. 😀

Annnnnnnnnnnnd because either a. your cat deserves well-crafted chapeaux, or b. you want your cat to hate you and plot revenge.
