I’ve been out of it. As I’ve been looking back over the past many months, there have been a series of unexpected and sometimes difficult things that have come to pass. While life is generally good, there have been some very tough times, like I suppose we all occasionally experience. But I’ve not had the right kind of energy to be here lately as I’ve been processing these things. Sometimes when these experiences come, I need to be quiet…take time to think and be still.
And now I’m starting to feel better, and I can see some glimmer of hope. I can see the light again…
…and my heart is ready to take it in.
With a light heart I can move forward. And I can begin to make joyful, little things again as well…such as this shiny tinfoil heart. To dull down the tinfoil a bit, try pouncing on Staz On ink pad (Timber Brown) with a stencil brush.
Then add some scraps such as a piece of paper torn from an old greeting card, leftover square of cotton batting, some silver silk ribbon, all held together with a vintage post earring (with a dab of glue).
Then if you like, sew a pocket style gift pouch (shown under the heart) out of sheets of tea-dyed recycled dryer sheets.
May the light of hope burn brightly within you…and inspire you.
