Phenomenal Two Letter Word

This was sent to me in an email.  I found it to be quite phenomenal so I thought I would share it with you.   

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is
'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand
UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP

At a meeting, why does a topic come
UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning.
People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed
UP is special.

And this
UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.
We open
UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of
UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page
and can add UP to about thirty definitions.
If you are
UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding
UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!

Beautify Your World

Beautify Your World

What Is An Ornament And How Can They Be Used?

When we think of an ornament we automatically think of decorating the Christmas tree.  Ornaments are much more than this. Other words for ornament include: adornment, decoration, embellishment, beautification, gilding, trimming, titivation, enhancement, garnish, and sprucing up. Ornaments can be figurines, medallions, jewelry including pendants, earrings, brooches, gift tags, cake toppers/trimmings, urn, statue, a wall hanging, etc. An ornament is anything used to beautify and enhance.

Dolphin Lane Designs specializes in handmade clay ornaments to add beautification to whatever you can imagine.  Pin one to a scarf or to a jacket; wear as a pendant; enhance a gift package or wine bottle; hang on a wall; enhance a wreath.  Let your imagination go wild and beautify your world.

Every ornament is handmade and hand painted so no two are exactly the same.  Each ornament is also signed and dated.

Go ahead beautify your world!

What Inspires You?

Sometimes I just sit and try to come up with an idea.  Nothing.  Why is it that my mind just can not think of a thing to create?  Or I think of a great idea and get to work on it and it just doesn't come out the way I imagined.  Does this happen to you?  What gets your creative juices flowing? 

Discouragement sets in and then I just want to give up.  I'm on school break right now and have more time to create but can not think of what to do.  And the more I try to come up with something, the more my mind draws a blank - complete blank.  And the weather isn't co-operating either.  It's been raining, I mean really down-pour raining.  If I could get outside and just clear my head maybe the creative juices would flow.

Leave your comments; let me know what you do to get back in the creative mood.
