Take a couple of old hair scrunchies,

.. some old files from the recycling bin, three ink pads and a handful of images. What do you have? A couple of weeks of relaxation, time to fiddle and arrange, without really thinking, after long, long days at work.
At the end I wondered what to do with my offerings, so thee ATC's became notebooks - I am so glad I bought the Zutter.
Cards and tags will be packaged together and, "Voila!", some of my Christmas preparations are made. Nice cards are so expensive here in Australia and packs of hand made tags will be appreciated too.
I have been soothed by my needle going in and out of paper, calmed by the rhythm of my brush as it dances between ink pads adding a little colour here and there and strengthened by the time to be inside my head.
Would you like an ATC? No need to trade, just ask. If you are one of the first three I will send you one.
Thank you Jesus, for the peace I feel today. Thank you friends for being there for me through the hours, days or years.
Have a wonderful week!

Am happy you are having a lovely peaceful time Julie. And your art reflects that. Gorgeous work. You have a way of doing vintage that is so clever and interesting ; and tactile too!

Lovely - very, very lovely. Thank you for thinking and praying for me as I am on your mind - you can't imagine what an encouragement it is.

With both the girls in school everyday - my life is crazy busy. But I've been grounded in the Word lately and it helps immensely.

With my love.
