The Unnecessary Sorry



I'm not super eloquent as you alllll surely know, but I'm gonna try to get my point across without sounding reeeeal stupid. This has been on my mind a lot lately, because everywhere I look people are saying sorry for the dumbest reasons. You know the ones!

Sorry I look like this
Sorry the place is such a mess (haven't had time to clean up.. name that movie)
Sorry this picture is blurry
Sorry I'm not talking much

SORRY SORRY SORRY.

It really doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but we are just so used to apologizing for being ourselves that I truly think it has an effect on who we are and what we think of ourselves. Some of the best people I know are the people who are unapologetically themselves. These people are confident and bold and kind, while never apologizing for their own unique quirks and opinions. They have big hearts, they say sorry when it is needed and keep quiet when it's not. They aren't rude, they are just not sorry for being human. Can we all just take the time to think it through before we apologize for the trivial things? Let's be comfy with being people and stop saying sorry for it.       Now there are OBVIOUSLY times where sorry is necessary. I'm not heartless. If you've done something wrong, if you've hurt someone's feelings, if you've made a mistake, etc. Hopefully you'll know. hahahaha.

Thank you to Amy Poehler for the wise words, AS ALWAYS. I have a big project coming up in which Amy Poehler quotes are a larrrrrge contributor.

Happy Wednesday everyone!


Gospel Glue-In Sheet!

Sometimes followers tell me to do things, and I'm like. "Um, no. Sorry. That won't work out. You think it'll be nice, but it won't sell." --- honestly this has only happened a few times. And those are the times I refer people to my "custom order listing" :)

But OTHER TIMES, followers and friends suggest things that I say "YES GREAT IDEA!!" to. Like yesterday, when I accidentally printed a dollhouse version of The Living Christ, posted it because miniature things are freakin adorable, and got A MILLION (ten) people comment that it would be a great scripture glue-in. To be quite honest, I didn't even know people still used actual scriptures anymore.... When we have such handy dandy electronic devices! (K I really do see how reading the real thing can be helpful to people though.)

ANYWAYS! The people asked and I have delivered!!

Here it is! A page of mini inspiration. The size is 8.5x11, your standard printer paper.

This is what it will look like.... just snip along the black lines!


You

I just love the simplicity and "duhhh"ness of this quote. This whole book is kind of full of her saying "YOU ARE ALREADY A QUEEN/KING, YOU JUST DONT REALIZE IT" and it's allllll true!

There are a bajillion people on this earth. There have been a bajillion more before us. Whenever I go to Disneyland or somewhere with a lot of people, my mind is just blown that there are that many people and every single person is different. Sure, there's that doppelganger theory, but you are LITERALLY the only you there is. I am the only me there is. There is no other Holly Robinson just like me. I have my own unique set of gifts and talents that I am here on this earth to share. Here's a little bit surrounding the quote....

"You are perfect. To think anything less would be as pointless as a river thinking it's got too many curves or that it moves too slowly or that it's rapids are too rapid. Says who? You're on a journey with no defined beginning, middle or end. There are no wrong twist and turns. There is just being. And your job is to be as you can be. This is why you're here. To shy away from who you truly are would leave the world you-less. You are the only you there is and ever will be. I repeat, you are the only you there is and ever will be. Do not deny the world its one and only chance to bask in your brilliance." -Jen Sincero, You are a Badass

CAN YOU EVEN HANDLE THAT? I love it so much. Your journey is your own, it is no one else's, and more importantly, it is no one else's business. Another gem.. "Do not waste your precious time giving one single crap about what others think of you." Honestly. This. I'm not going to blabber on, I'm just going to tell you to pick up this book and learn to love yourself and embrace yourself.
*gives self a hug*

We Back!

MY BLOG IS BACK IN BUSINESS!!!

About a month back, something happened. And my blog became a hideous thing. All of my design was... lost. I was annoyed because I happened to have an important post coming, but I mean, I'm no HTML professional, so it wasn't a huge loss. Anyways. I've been too lazy to fix it, but yesterday I thought, I AM A GROWN-A$$ WOMAN! I can fix this!! So I did.

I like having a place to share my thoughts about certain prints and quotes and things. So here we are. Do you feel a little bit like you're in a rubber room with all this WHITE? Well I had to stay on brand, didn't I?

I've thought about a website, but um... I truly love the ease of Etsy for both myself and my customers! All I need is this blank white space to ramble on and on. I used to blog all the time, did you know that? Through and after high school, up until the very very end of 2014. The year my mom was diagnosed with cancer and then kicked cancer's butt. It was therapeutic for me, as well as a way to keep family and friends updated on the happenings in the Robinson house. I wrote my last blog post the day after Christmas, and never looked back. It seemed like a good ending. Here is that blog post. I'm still really proud of it.

Anyways. Got a little off track there! I actually have no artistic substance to show you today. Unless you count this flawless, beautiful writing as art. ha. ha. ha.

Stay Golden.

back-to-school printable with her theme this year, "Stick to the task". Jamie is

Nurse's week!

Hiya pals!

So I started a new job, at a different part of the company I've worked for for almost two years. This new office has about double (or more) the therapists, and we also have a few doctors! which means we have a few nurses!
