A guest post by Carolyn Dube
I used to be afraid that I might make a mistake but not any more. Mistakes are pure gold to me now. Why? Because every mistake is an opportunity. Things formerly known as a mistake are now just an Oops.
In this video, you will see my Oops as I play with stencils from StencilGirl and and paint on a large envelope. Each and every Oops was a gift, an Outstanding Opportunity that Presented Suddenly, that guided me as I played. Even the ugly ones were a gift, and I do mean ugly!
