TGIFive on Friday

I've been having some art journaling fun playing with my glimmer mists and masks.








Which reminds me...this is what happens when I get bored.


I Mod Podge'd the trash can from my art desk. LOL. I used leftover scrapbook paper from when I revamped my Ikea cabinet to hold my art supplies back in April.


I decided to rename Friday's "On the Web" post to "TGIFive on Friday" and keep things a bit more simplified. 

1) September's blog planner printable from Create as Folk.
2) The lovely Goddess Leonie shared a beautiful How to be Joyful poster. 
3) Kelly Rae Roberts shared a gorgeous vintage birdcage revamp.
4) My Little Birdie art "music to my ears" was featured on A little bird told me post last week from The Brave Girls Club. Don't you just love these daily lovelies? 
5) Chocolate Chunk Toffee Bars from Oh She Glows. Can't wait to make these treats!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XOXO,

Quote - Plant a seed and it becomes a flower

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.  ~Leo Buscaglia

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to enjoy?

Thank you for joining me for this week's Wishcasting Wednesday. If you'd like to join this magical circle of dreamers and doers, please visit Jamie Ridler Studios.

Wheatland, WY
 What do you wish to enjoy?

Guernsey, WY
After 3 weeks of travel to Wyoming and D.C., I wish to enjoy much relaxation on the home front + much missed time at my art desk. Before I left I wrote about how I'd taken a break from art that I share with the world and have been focusing on art for just my eyes (Thoughts on Being Brave). I'm still delving deeply into Soul Restoration 1 and hope to come out on the other side with renewed and insightful art to share with the world. Art that digs even deeper into my soul. Thank you for being so supportive and empowering, my dear soul sisters.


P.S.
Is anyone else attending The Creative Connection event next month? This will be my first time attending and would love to connect with you while there.

Note to you


I bet you feel all alone at times and like no one else understands. You feel like no one could ever comprehend what you're going through. You might feel like you don't have anyone to talk to; to share your load.

I must tell you, you are not alone.

I want to offer you a virtual hug ((hugs)), a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and a place to unload your burdens.

You are not alone, my love.

I am here for you.
