Lately

My friends Nate and Katie have this quote hanging on their fridge. I love it. I had to sketch this to hang in our house. I think about it a lot. I think about this quote any time I hear people speaking badly of others. I think about it when I hear myself speaking badly of others. I think about it when my feelings get hurt by gossip that somehow found it's way back to me. I think about it even more when a friend gets their feelings hurt by gossip or even direct (misinformed) accusations. I think about it when I am in a group of people and I want to seem interesting or cool. I think it is a good quote to keep up in your old noggin.

***So many people asked! We just had to put this in our shop. This quote will be available in 5 x 7 and in two different colors. Come and get 'em!

wise. insightful, thanks. no one likes hearing the end of gossip about themselves so WHY on earth do we do it to others? messed up. this is helpful for sure. (:

Need one! Ok, I'd like one for my home please. What is the possibility of getting one off of your etsy shop?
I found you through Natalie Norton. Her hubby and my hubby grew up in the same home town. Plus, she is my Nutritional cleansing inspiration! Love that girl!!
