Don't Quit !!

Trudging through this most trying month...
I am coming through it
on the other majestic, most creative side!!

Don't Quit
author unknown~

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;

When the funds are low, and the debts are high;
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh;

When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;

And you can never tell how close you are;
It may be near when it seems afar.

So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit.

After playing with these 2 cameos for months now
They have both seemingly come together overnight!
& they are both unlike any of my previous collage necklaces!

Some finishing touches (they both still need their chains)
& I will hopefully pop them in the shop by tomorrow!
