I must create ...

I took time away from chores today to make these last two cards, and with them came peace, and the decision to give myself permission to create every day - no matter how busy life is. Art is sustaining. Having said that, I have achieved a lot this weekend and I can now see the possibility of setting off for Fremantle, and Art Journey Retreat on Thursday!!! Yeah!

I am even getting excited again. Yes, there is a lot that could go wrong - but there is a lot to be hopeful about, and I am going to be meeting up with so many friends while making new.

Have a peace filled week.

These are beautiful! The fact that you used such vibrant, happy colors says a lot about the way you're feeling. I'm glad you've decided to make art everyday. Since I've been doing that I feel so much more calm and centered. It helps to just sit down and make something and whatever is bothing me just goes away.

What wonderful colours.Makes me think these butterfly girls are fluttering over a rainbow.

Art retreat looming must have you all stirred with excitment.
A flurry of emotions maybe.
Its all good.
Cant wait to catch up

Oh Julie , you know I LOVE these don't you??? Gorgeous, vibrant ATC's. I love what you have done with the faces and butterfly wings!

Am so pleased you have the art retreat coming up. And that you get to spend time with our Dawnie.

I know you are going to have a wonderful time. And come back excited about your art and refreshed too.

Am glad you are taking time to make art every day. Like Janet when I make art it makes me feel calm and happy (and gets rid of any blues I am feeling).

And how could you be down when working with such bright colors?
