A daily dose of collage creativity, in images, words and thoughts. Always remember, "Everything will be alright in the end...if it is not alright it must not be the End"

I'm not there yet but close

 Every once in awhile I snap a picture of myself in the woods, my happy place, my spiritual place.  My place to run to and be spirited from.  I ran their yesterday and took our one dog Gracie with me.  The smells were so sweet, and not the sweet rotten smell like in the fall.  No fresh and sweet.  So many different wild flower have bloomed already but the honey suckles are present now and brought such peace to my soul. 

This photo that I found on the internet, probably by some famous photographer it's warms my heart and really makes me feel connected in a way that I can't explain but know. 

As we continue to transform,  My word this year, I'm reminded of all us in this transformation period.  I do pray that we ground ourselves in earthly ways.  
Simple life ways.  Loving ways.  

Being humbled and sentimental

New section of my Vision Board for June


When I made the Creative Vision Board at the begin of the Year....my word was Transform and none of had any idea of what kind of year we would be heading into.  

Much grief and so much love and beauty too.  After listening to Brene Brown's Unlocking Us Podcasts, and the grief one.  Finding out that the stages of grief happen when they happen and not in any certain order but they people that study grief found that there is another stage.  That is Finding Meaning about it all.  This of course personal and than it spreads out from there.  

I should have posted this last month but I had a good view of it as I been working on my laptop everyone morning.  You see my vision board is the under layment for laptop and I see it all the time. 

My Dad passed on March 5th, His birthday was March 5th...Full Circle journey.  Still brings tears to my eye and heart.

In the past month....




I've made this Talking stick for all my social workers, and therapist people.  I let them speak to me as of picking the stick...had to go out to the woods and pick dry but not brittle sticks,  I have a stash of leather, rabbit fur, feathers, beads and material.   I was delighted to make this and now to move on to something else...

Sharing Collage Mixed Media



I created this last year to show to my students up North at Dillman's to inspire them to think about the kind of collage and mixed media art they want to make. We explore sections to see how each other was about to express in their own way.

Mini Prayer Flags....playing around


I'm in the process of setting up a class....and then I trailed off and painting mini sheets after they were sewn and cut. Five each, of the five colors. 



Last night sitting calming down before bedtime I strung the flags on the jute cord and stitched extra to make sure the flags stayed in place while on the cord.  My past experience is the flags get wet from hanging outside and will slide on the string, and bunch up.   
Happy to see the idea work out...next will be do stitch some fabric to the other empty flags I have with some fun stitching and see how the work out... evening actives, being that I don't knit or crochet.
