    Tomorrow we will release our July M3 Collab.
    This M3 collection we made in Dawn's honour, she was one of the M3 designers and I feel truly honoured to have worked alongside her all this time.
    She was incredibly sweet and professional and outstandingly talented person.

    All the time that I worked in this collection I was thinking about "loss"...
    Any loss is hard but when it is unexpected it just makes it so much harder, It makes us fear losing someone we love.

    This collection was made thinking about her, but at the same time I could not stop thinking about the loved ones that were taken from me and my family in this last year...
    which made it even more important and emotional to me.
    I was able to search motivational sites and found quotes that encouraged my soul to keep having faith in life.

    So I thought about a good way to motivate each other in these sad times.

    Post below a quote that that you identify yourself and that shows how we should enjoy every moment of life.

    I have 2:
    "When you lose something in your life, stop thinking it's a loss for you... it is a gift you have been given so you can get on the right path to where you are meant to go, not to where you think you should have gone."

    Suze Orman

    "We are fragile. Life is short. Eternity is long. Every minute counts."
    John Piper

    I'll randomly choose a comment tonight (7/19) by 12 pm EST and you will WIN
    the Light of Dawn Collection (my 4 M3 add-ons)!

    These speak to me right now.

    Life is about change. Sometimes it's painful. Sometimes it's beautiful. But most of the time, it's both.
    - Lana Lang

    Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now. (I don't know who said it)

    “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” - by Harvey MacKay

    "Enjoy life now. This is not a rehearsal."

    It's a beautiful idea to honor her memory with this month's M3. She's missed already...

    Here's some of my favorite quotes:
    - It can't rain all the time.
    - Breathe. It's a bad day, not a bad life.
    - Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.
    - Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.
    (I'm pretty sure I've scrapped all of them!)

    we have, so many of us, have gone through some heart breaking loss in the past year...

    I found a quote that is meant for traveling, but I think it can be adapted into the people we loose and the way to make the pain less intense and light up their pace to their own spirit world...

    the quote says
    Travel leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller....

    I found myself unable to write or speak every time I lost a loved one, but then I found healing and sometimes almost joy in telling about our amazing experiences, be that difficult times or the amazing ones.
    I am finding my ground slowly to tell my Dad's story, and in our pages here I think we are pouring the connection we had with Dawn, even if you just only bought a few kits.... you were impacted by her creativity....and telling her story together with her art will keep her full of light
    super abraco e beijo pra ti ,com todo meu coracao.
    LOVE your M3 add ons, I ll grab later, was unwell and we had to finish the challenge for tomorrow and chat....but pages will be here soon!!!!!

    Paula, im so glad youre honoring Dawn thru this.

    My favorite is from a song

    "Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
    What if Your healing comes through tears
    And what if a thousand sleepless nights
    Are what it takes to know You're near
    What if my greatest disappointments
    Or the achings of this life
    Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy
    And what if trials of this life
    The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
    Are Your mercies in disguise"

    beautiful idea, Paula!

    i like this one and it makes me think of Dawn too :

    - Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

    - In the midst of winter, I found that was within me an invincible summer.

    - All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.

    - Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it.

    - The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.

    And this one from a song by my fave (Italian) band:
    Sometimes it may seem like everything is over; a moment later you look at your hands, lift them up to the sky and cover the clouds; grabbing them back down, you hide them behind your back, until the next sun, until its dark, to see the stars better and reassure them that tomorrow will be a new beginning.

    I saw this on instagram and I screenshot it, because it hit me right in the heart...we must enjoy life!

    “Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you're 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written, or you didn't go swimming in those warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It's going to break your heart. Don't let this happen.”

    I have always loved this quote by Tagore:

    "Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark."
