Take Three Thursday | Mistakes

I'm really enjoying joining in with Mary-Lou's Take Three Thursday, a meme designed to help us notice more of the ordinary of our lives, most weeks this year! It gives me a chance to pause each week and think about what it is I've noticed.

Unfortunately, this week I've noticed several little mistakes that I've made recently! 

1. Earlier this month, I sent out an email with this subject line:

Sneek Peak & Last Call - Flowers in the Bible Class This Friday or Saturday 

Did you spot the error? I didn't notice it until after it had already gone out to the 390 people on my newsletter list!!

2. The title of last week's Take Three Thursday post also had an error: 

Take Three Thursday | How To Style A Mantle

I did correct the error in the title (and throughout the post!), but not until after it had already been sent to those individuals who subscribe to my blog posts via email! 

3. This week I filmed a couple of hymnal journaling videos (that I'll be editing & publishing soon). As I was narrating and illustrating at the same time, I made a mistake, which I immediately attempted to correct ... but it still shows up a little.

It's lucky I'm a huge believer in the fact that "perfection is highly overrated", isn't it!


  1. Thanks for joining in Melissa. I heard my Gran's voice in this post ... "a blind man would be happy to see those mistakes" never sure what that really meant except my Gran had a way to make mistakes seem less troublesome. :)

  2. Proof reading your own work is never easy!

  3. Perfection is absolutely overrated. I seem to be writing over dates on scrapbook pages lately. I put 2019 when the event was in 2018. And don't get me started on the errors in my instant messaging; not all of them are auto-correct's fault.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
