My wish is to always find inspiration and beauty in the world around me. Some days it's easy to fall into negativity, but I wish to always be able to see the joy in even the smallest of things that I know we should be grateful for! Kim, thank you for your inspiration and for the learning you share to make our lives richer and thanks for providing this wonderful environment for sharing!

Thanks Kim, for your generosity. My hope for this week is that our impending freezing temperatures do not damage the the fruit crops in our area. Trees are right now in bloom

My wish is to be still and worry about things that might not ever happen.....

Completely love your image here, so beautiful. I am in one of those pesky creative downturns at the minute so my wish is for inspiration.

My wish today is for a happy and successful future for my granddaughter as she graduates high school.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBetty
Unbelievably gorgeous image, Kim! Thanks again for hosting TT!

My wish for today, to have simple abundance and know I have everything I need. Gorgeous photo Kim.

You are always so generous Kim. My wish is that everyone has a creative week!
Patricia - you need to look at my image this week : )

My wish is for the ability to master the art of living in the present moment...always a challenge! What a beautiful photo you've shared today...thank you for the opportunity to win your texture collection, Kim. :)

My wish is world peace. Impossible, to achieve probably, but still...
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKatarina
My wish is that no matter what my kids do in life that they don't define their self-worth with success. Because success comes and goes with the tide of the ocean and when you tie your worth into success, it leaves with failure. This weighs heavy on my mind right now as we navigate through my sons illness and his ability or not to continue to play football.

I adore your image as right now I'm raising monarch butterflies!! ;)

My wish is to always remember to connect to that place of stillness and wisdom within when making decisions- and then to live fearlessly the life of my dreams.

Thank you for this lovely giveaway, Kim - Your Cloth and Paper Collection! My mom is having her 70th birthday in May, and I have the priviledge of travelling home to her for 10 days and join in preparing a party for her - I wish she would have an unforgettable birthday day together with family and friends :)
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNina
Great image - perfect word too. Happy Birthday, Kim!

I wish that my blessing will stay motivated to finish the school year strong.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterabrianna
My wish is for WORLD PEACE, and a more personal wish that after 8 months I wish my foot would heal.

April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterEarl
Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous collection! My wish is for motivation (or perhaps I should say giving myself permission) to just "sit and be inspired" instead of always "doing".
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie
My wish for this week is to get back on my creative path. I haven't deviated too much but it's easy to get caught up in the stress of your day to day life. Days can go by without any creative release and my soul begins to cry. It's with my art that my soul sings. Kim, thank you for being part of my journey. - Lisa

My wish is enjoy each day as if its our last !!

My wish is to continue to be inspired by your creativity and generosity as well as the many people who visit/post here. In turn I hope I can do the same for others too!

I wish to find inspiration in everyday and to rejuvenate my spirit with that inspiration. I am off to volunteer in Haiti this Friday. I have a feeling my wish will be granted while I am there :). I just hope I can carry the inspiration I gain there with me.
Thanks for this.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterdee
Your work is so inspiring! My wish is to be able to produce beautiful images that will inspire others to see the beauty around them regardless of their present circumstances.

My wish is that I don't forget that each day given to me is a gift, and with that gift I must continue to seek inspiration so that I may pay it forward every chance I get.

In the words of Mary Oliver, - Instructions on living life ...
Pay Attention
Be Astonished
Tell About It

Happy Birthday Kim .... you are living inspiration and I wish for you,

An abundance of Light in your life, Love always within your Heart, Strength to Endure what life throws at you, ... and Courage to let it Happen because that's when you receive Life's most profound lessons.

Enjoy your Day my friend .... this is a most beautiful image so thank you for sharing You.

My hope is that my medical test tomorrow reveals good results. I'm very nervous about it.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDebora
Right now my biggest wish is for my daughter to have an uneventful pregnancy and delivery and a healthy baby!!!
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSandi Terry
My wish, is that I can have the time to go see my new great niece in Tennessee. A first for my nephew. I would love to be able to photograph the family and hug and love on the baby!!!! Have a Blessed day!

Lovely image. I wish for peace and restored wonder and joy for someone I hold dear and love with all my heart. He is struggling.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBonnie
My wish right now is that doctors can figure out something to get me walking without pain soon. I need to keep active. I have too much to do with my life to be held back by pain.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAnne Hartman
My wish is for my son, I wish for him to find his way, find his peace and move forward into a happy and successful life.
April 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLinda
My wish is to be able to live in Australia closer to my daughter instead of being an Ocean apart. In that way I would not miss out on my grandsons milestones and sporting achievements. It is so hard being a gran from distance!

Thank you Kim for all you do and I also wish that I had more time to spend with my camera because when I am out there taking pics I am happy.

May 1, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDale
It's your Birthday -- Oh my goodness can you share how old you are - jk!
I wish -- that all tomorrows and today's are peaceful, loving that they are filled with tons of fun mixed with Joy and lasting heart felt memories.. And Kim with what has been shared above "May today bring to you Happy Moments".
God bless your kindness and all your good works...

My wish is for the soldiers serving overseas... with two planes down in the past week (that I know of), I hope that the families of those soldiers find peace.
I also hope that my fiancé comes home from his deployment in time for our wedding. We're cutting it close so I could use all the "wishes" I can get!
May 1, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDana
I long for less pride of myself and more love for others... especially my sweet husband.
May 1, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSharon K
Lovely gentle image. My wish is for more time, in a busy family and work life, to play with textures.
May 2, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterElise
Thank you for sharing your beautiful textures with us. My wish is to remember to take advantage of every moment and live those moments to the fullest. And never have regrets that I didn't take the time to find and pursue a dream.
May 2, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHeather
I wish for Spring! This winter is ridiculous! I was having a conversation with my boss today at lunch about seasonal depression, and if we feel as down and blah as we do, I couldn't even imagine those that suffer through the winter months when they are extended until May! Anyways. Happy belated birthday! We will be celebrating my sons third birthday with 8 inches of snow on the ground.
May 3, 2013 | Unregistered Commenteremily
This week has been a week of great days... my birthday (yes, even becoming a year older is great), our 29th wedding anniversary, AND the best...our son's 1 year anniversary of being cancer FREE!! So my wish is that in one year, we will have been blessed to "up" the number for each of these milestones in our family's lives. Blessings abound. Thanks for all of your inspiration, Kim!
