Love, Hope and Joy

Inspired to sew, the above was a combination of paper, hand dyed cloth and lace all sewn up together.....Had good fun.

Being thankful.....

"Yes" and "thank you" are the opposites of selfishness.
The ego can only be erased through happiness and gratitude.
Arnaud Desjardins

The dictionary describes "exhilaration" as a feeling of excitement and happiness. Today, I had such an experience when I met up with a friend whom I had missed catching up for a long while. Bettz is a talented artfriend and we've shared many a common interest in the world of art and crafting. Commonality was the precursor to exhilaration....and we found solace in sharing our thoughts and views about art...each has a quiet yearning to make better art....and to evolve and grow into our respective craft..
The question about the "intention" of our art lingered through thereafter and it sets me thinking and exploring my own...
while it was a brief moment, I experienced exhilaration! And that was something to be remembered....

And I close with a quote from the famous poet, Rumi..

"Whatever you love you are"

Monoprinting madness!

I went into a monoprinting frenzy the other day and had loads of fun doing it......18 pages in total!!!
I love the lotus flower and when I was given the lotus leaf by a sweet florist at the market place, I had to preserve the beauty of it. Well, this is just the beginning of a series of lotus themed art.......I see possibilities!!!

Happy Weekend Friends!!
