This week Jamie asks this great question.
What leap do you wish to take?
Oh what a great question. My wish is fairly simply in idea but perhaps not so much when putting it into action. I wish to leap over all the obstacles that I feel are holding me back from my creative dreams. I write about things a lot but I don't seem to make plans or follow through. I'd like to leap to the other side where everything flows easily and I am living that dream.
Creativity Boot Camp Day 3
Today we looked at Creative buzz killers, those things in your life that stop you when you just get going or prevent you from being as creative as you would like. Our prompt for the day was multi layered so I did a textured page and added the buzz killers for me. Then I changed the words around to make them more powerful for me. The page has tissue papers, paint, stamping and more paint and stamping.
More Journal Pages
I am still doing a couple journal pages a day trying to finish up the book. This one is just some random scraps and when I threw the heart up there I thought of Kim and her Big Love which led to writing about slogans.
In this one I had multiple layers of paint and stamping and I really liked how it turned out. Then the image seemed to be the exactly the same color. I like how they matched so well. I ended up journaling about a new situation in my life. Since some of you will enlarge and read I guess I had better just tell all.
I had my surgery follow up yesterday and yes they found something. It is an early uterine cancer and they believe a hysterectomy will take care of it. I will be having surgery next month. Now this is not what I hoped for but if you are going to get cancer you do want it in the early stages so its easier to cure. So I am grateful for that at least and whatever other lessons it has come to teach me. I may have to postpone my trip to Ireland and I am not happy with that but it is what it is. It doesn't mean I won't go but perhaps not at the time I had planned.
Kim had sent me some of her Rock My World rocks to pass around on my adventures but I think I will keep this one for myself.. I am sure she won't mind.
Then I went for a walk in the backyard and found this. A gift from the Universe.
When you compare it to this other owl feather I found its really small although it could have come from the adult bird I like to think it is a feather from the baby. If I go out at dusk sometimes I can see the owls again. It feels great to know they are still out there soaring and living their lives.
