Dream


Okay, I admit it. I'm into butterflies right now...especially this one. It's a nice image, don't you think? I created several of these for Hippieaud's SWAP.

The following image is almost exactly like the above, I only changed the back of the card and the placement of the die-cut leaves.



I had originally planned to do the second card for the swap, but it really was taking much too long to cut out all the little circles for the tree tops...so I changed my design a bit so I could get them postal.

It's raining here today again, but not as much as it was the days after I returned from my trip. The rain puts me in a rather mellow and tired mood sometimes - and sometimes pensive. Today would be one of those days.

I'm thinking of my acting friend, Jami, who is on the verge of passing into the next phase of her existence. Beyond life. It was reported to me yesterday that she probably won't make it through the week, which is extremely sad for her daughter. Tessa will lose her mother just before Mother's Day this year. If I could, I would say the following to my friend, Jami:

Jami, being your sister, Stella, in A Streetcar Named Desire [Tennessee Williams] was one of the highlights of acting. Remember your line as Blanche, "I don't want reality, I want magic"? I wish for some magic now. I wish for a reality that doesn't include you being whisked away from your family much too soon. Like Blanche, I desire an illusion that includes happier times for you and your family.

I will miss your glow and enthusiam. I will miss your big, wonderful brown eyes and curly brown hair. I will miss your robust spirit and nature. For now you must rest. May the angels bring you to a place where you will no longer experience pain. Only glory. Good-bye, my friend.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
