ON A PERSONAL NOTE



The process continues to discover and release the inner madwoman inside, as I applied those thoughts to create this cover for my journal which will be part of my art group's journal prompt....a new prompt each month. So far I got this done.....I had so much fun with a little craziness here. This month's prompt is "what color inspires us?" More on the answer to that later!

Another self indulgence this weekend was to purchase a tutorial online and make this bracelet for myself. I fell in love with the color of these pearls, and I so enjoyed the process of wrapping each one tight but loose, like an egg in their nests, carrying on my wrist each day my hopes and dreams. It makes me happy.

Thank you as always for your kind comments, your visits and your friendship.

OH wow! I LOVE that journal cover. You make the most beautiful and meaningful collages. When I read that the bracelet had pearls, I was surprised. They looked like stones to me. But you did a great job with the bracelet. Lovely, in fact is the word I would use.
