Always More January 17 2017

I wrote this because I was moved by the idea that each of us move through life and all of our reactions to both things and people are more telling about ourselves than they are of the things or people we are reacting.

There was a beautiful sculpture I saw a photo of from Burning Man of two adults sitting back to back on the floor, looking sad, and alone, while each person's inner child reached out to one another. 

Every day is a chance to change and grow. We will always be each a collection of all of our own experiences, but learning to accept other people as they are, as a collection of *their* own experiences, is one of the greatest challenges. 

Anyhow, I call this, "Always More":

Happy Craft-o-ween! October 31 2014

Took the afternoon to make use of some scraps of kraft colored cardstock. (The leftover scraps from our Hope Clips packaging design.)
And bits and pieces found around the house -- another  scrap of ribbon and a few clippings from a wild bush in the back yard.

I wonder what type of berries these are. Nature is beautiful <3

Today's creation: paper pumpkin centerpieces =)
