Early morning thoughts Today was about bezel making for me. : )Is cooler today, so i decided, to pull out my supplies and create some bezels.My bezels are not, in any way perfect.I step into my studio, i could be there for days, if i allowed myself to do it.My sell at a discount next book that i am currently working on, is no different. A while back, i mentioned that i was going to start working on a large fabric book.Well, i did start one and it is a work in progress, for it takes a while to put this kind of book together.Decided that i would show some of this work to you as i am creating it.Are some of the pages that are in this book. My next piece of art that i have ready, is called. "Reaching". I love sitting outside in the morning and watching how the world comes alive and starts to spread it wings and reach for the day.Like the flowers, that start to spread their peddles or the bird that flies this or that way, in search of her food for her babies, or how the sun starts to surface and greet us, we are all searching and reaching for something. I decided to create a journal wrap to represent this. "Reaching".Started this line of journal wraps a few years ago, wanting to create something that would cover your journals and protect it, but also be a piece of art, within itself. I love sitting and looking out into the world around me, on walks, car rides, etc.And really absorb the world that surrounds me. Sometimes, this might require us to close our eyes and listen and by doing so, we are able to see with new eyes.Can sometimes get into a routine and take things forgranted and it isn until we step back and really look at our the homepage here blessings, are we able to really see. Sometimes, we have looked at something so long, that we are only able to see it one way.A break and refreshing our mind, allows us to breathe in new ideas, dreams, etc.The one that always takes my breathe away is, nature.Has blessed us with such beauty, that if we are not careful, we can take it for granted and before we know it, we no longer are able to appreciate it. I decided to create a small journal with Bridesmaid Dresses all of this in mind and call it. "Life" I believe that from time to time, we all find ourselves in need of it.Isn always for when we are going through something bad.We find ourselves in need of it when we are changing jobs, meeting new people, needing to have a talk with someone, letting our kids go off to college, trying a new hobby, moving to a new home, etc. The thing that comes with courage.Is growth.We can step out and take that step, we find that we stand a little taller, obtain knowledge on a new level, rise a little higher in our faith.Step of courage, helps lead us to our next phase of the journey.Last of our kids, has graduated from high school this year.That, comes the courage to let him go off, to explore the world for himself.Courage to now, focus back onto myself.
