We all have our favourite sayings and words of wisdom that we keep referring back to or try living by. They can be passed on to us by family members, friends; we might have got them from a song, movie or in the street overhearing someone’s conversation… All the ‘life words’ but what do we do with them? How do we store them so that we can go back to them when needed?
Juli Ondrush used her Canvas Corp Brands products (yes, we do mean all three brands!!!) to make a special ‘LIFE WORDS” book and an altered canvas envelope to keep them safe.
‘Do you ever need a place to keep all those fabulous inspirational words you find on the internet or in a book or coming out of the mouth of people you meet? I made this little book to hold those words so I can keep them all in one place and remember them, and then share them when they need to go somewhere else. Inspire yourself, inspire others.’ – says Juli about the idea behind the project.

What a clever idea, right?!? You can keep adding to your book or have one touch for each year. You could even encourage your children to take part in the ‘Life Words Search’ and allow each of them to make their own book of Words of Wisdom.
