Voices Soft and Sweet
Today, boy do we need voices that are soft and sweet. I created this tag with a lot of Tim Holtz product and included a saying from one of his sticker sheets that reads ‘Voices soft and sweet.’ In this world right now, there are some voices that aren’t so soft and sweet. Sometimes our voices need to raise for certain reasons . . . certain reasons. Either way, what’s my tone? Am I being sweet? The world needs more sweet and less sour. Looking for other inspiration of other mixed media tags? You might enjoy THIS. Here’s what I used on the above tag and the simple how to:…

I am Grateful for Reflection
Dina Wakley’s Challenge this month is “I am Grateful for Reflection.” So true . . . there is certainly some good time at the moment with staying home to reflect. I have been reflecting on the future, how I can have an impact, how I can bring encouragement to others, and more. It’s so important to reflect in order to learn, grow, and to look to the future. I wonder what you’re reflecting upon. Even though things can look bleak, I do hope that you are reflecting on things that bring you encouragement and hope for the future. Warmest creative wishes,

Oh these days . . . the world can be distracting, busy, loud, uncertain sometimes, and more. It’s so important to ‘Stay Grounded.’ For me, staying grounded includes practicing my faith, believing and knowing that in the end it will all be okay.

Here a few more thoughts on being grounded . . . Being Present. Warmest Creative Wishes,
An art journaling page and thoughts on being present in a world that is so loud right now.
Especially today, right now, there is a lot of stress in life. There’s worry about a pandemic, and the future. There’s strife about politics. Several tasks that used to be fun or relaxing are now work or a ‘chore.’ With all the stuff going on in life . . . it’s good to be a little silly sometimes. I created the below art journal page as a reminder of the importance of being silly and carefree.
