looking for Heather... LOL

Heather...the card you saw was sold, and each one is original... here are 5 others that might possibly interest you? They are available.. $2.50 per card (tax included) plus cost to mail to you! Let me know!

Rise above this

A REAL Friday (no work tomorrow!! at least outside the home). Can you imagine? And the dragonfly on this card seems to be rising above things. This is actually a DSP that I added another dragonfly to with EP. The fan is just from a box of random paper embellishments that hang out near my desk. I am a fan of dragonflies, I will admit.

Depending on your viewpoint, the main symbolisms of the dragonfly are renewal, positive force and the power of life in general. Dragonflies can also be a symbol of the sense of self that comes with maturity. Also, as a creature of the wind, the dragonfly frequently represents change. And,maybe the most important symbolism for me: as a dragonfly lives a short life, it knows it must live that life to the fullest with the short time it has. I think that is a major lesson for all of us. And a lesson I try to heed DAILY.

With that said, however, I have to find a balance between all the things in life I want to do because I cannot do them all... not AND sleep. …

I can't live...

... if living is without you... :-) oh the things I wake up with on Wednesdays. Speaking of waking up.. it is a BEAUTIFUL day in Central Texas. How do I know this when I have not even been outside? Becuase I woke up without a migraine. Priorities, you know.

This card was a lot of fun... DSP on black cardbase, embossed solid yellow piece and sued ribbon & punches & a sticker.
And, just like someone I know... it is "So Sweet" .

And, made 2 more cards & a deco for Raquel last night. Tonight is sorting financial records for Austin RCG and then Thursday is back to making cards. I am enjoying the card making, in spite of the stress of having to "produce". I just need to continue the ongoing struggle to keep my life (and calendar) from filling up with things that-while enjoyable-are taking up chunks of my time that I want to devote to other things. Priorities.. I know. And lately I have two that I actually WANT to make time for.

Stay tuned.

I want you to know

Well, if you actually click on the title to listen to today's song, that is NOT the mood in which I awoke. However, the title is a good lead in. What do I want you to know today? How about the sentiment on today's card? How about the fact that we need a radical shift in the paradigm we have created for our world? How about knowing within yourself that you can be who you want to be, from deep down inside, and still be able to be loved? Oh, I could espouse all day.. :-)

Instead, I will tell you that I am slowly figuring out technology and I want to throw the new "smart phone" less & less. And that I am not quite as terrified of taking on the responsibility for the Festival of the Goddess website as I was when I first decided I could do it. Still not sure I can, actually, but I can certainly start learning.

That is what I want you to know for today, actually... that you should do one thing today that terrifies you, that gets you out of your comfort zone, that causes …
