walking on a tightrope

Being saved by light and art

I found the following words in my archived writings. I believe I used to have them as the profile for my blog. Just thought they would be kind of neat to share.

"Creativity allows my voice to float up in echoing reverberations from that place in my soul where emotions thrive. It gives wings to my words, flight to my thoughts.
Creativity allows my hands to share a piece of my heart with those who take time to see. Nature brings inspiration ~ colours and sounds, taste and touch.
I thank God for this gift ~ this wonderful gift of creativity, the wind in my wings"

But about that tight rope - the page I started this morning tells a little about it.

Art has once again been my saving grace. After noticing a post of my friend Dale Anne I decided to do this little book of my own. I used some cards that probably came from a birthday card reminder holder. Each had a month on it. Numerous scraps and interesting pieces of paper and magazine clippings to name a few, made up the book. I was so happy to actually complete the project as I have not been doing that very often lately.

Angels be with you dear friends. Hoping you may "discover abundant colours of life".

I LOVE this mini book!!!
YOU have inspired me to make one of these a week - using up stuff I've been saving for ???? Just to keep me motivated and inspired while working on a tight time line!!!
Have a GREAT weekend...
