I am Thankful...

I was just sitting here thinking about how grateful I am to have all of you wonderful women out there in the world, from the Soul Journal group to my Friday Night Club gals to my friends at work...I am truly blessed. Here's a poem I came across that reminds me of our art groups as we are working together.

Any woman who sews or knits, or weaves, blends colors in a tapestry
or creates a patchwork quilt, knows by the feel that a single thread is
weak but the weaving, the blending, the intertwining with many others
makes it strong. Any woman alone, without friends to sustain her, to
nurture and support, to hold with loving arms, like a single thread, is weak.
But the weaving, the loving, the nurturing of others, the networks of
friendship makes her strong.

by~Barbara, 1994 in "The Kinship of Women"

Vintage Valentine's

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday! It's all about love, hope, kindness, friendship, the color red (my favorite color), etc. I'm currently trying to find my muse...she seems to be lost...what to do?!!!

Soul Journal...playing catchup!

The Yahoo Soul Journal group that I belong to has quite a few
lovely and wonderful prompts provided by the awesome Kathryn Antyr, her website:

My "Web of Love"

My "Weaved Dreams" for the new year. The song "Dream Weaver" kept going through my head as I was making this so I included it!

OMG - what a mess I make during this creative process! Here's my "Defining Words" process:

And, waalah!! I'm not finished with it yet...but it's a start.

I'm also dabbling in some other projects: making a valentine journal for a friend at work, valentine's for Etsy, and trying to get organized! See ya soon.

Kat MacLeod

I love this illustrator, Kat MacLeod...she is so talented. To see a lot of other amazing illustrations from an Australiam firm...check out this website: .

These books are definitely on my wish list!!!

This one is my favorite...maybe it's the urban cowgirl look (Texas thang maybe?!!). Either way...I would LOVE that dress and the boots.
