What are Your Rules?

You may remember these little booties from when they made their modeling debut in Boot Buddies and About Face. Some where in my brain I have this rule "thou shalt not paint the same thing twice". Not sure where that rule came from, but it is alive a kicking.  Yet, here they are again. Funny, the sky didn't fall.

Isn't it interesting how these sub-conscious rules can dictate the way we live our lives? Can you think of any rules that you have in the recesses of your mind that hold you back? 


  1. Amy, adorable painting, and great message, as usual! Thanks for reminding everyone of these important ideas! I love them all!

  2. Darling!! Follow your heart and your momentary whims. They are the most powerful. I actually like to BREAK rules. Get a kick out of that! :)
