I miss you guys ! I don't have much time to visit. I feel like Blogland is going on without me and I can't possibly catch up...
Can you tell I am a little stressed ?
Busily trying to get things finished for the CRAFT FAIR !!!
Thank God, it will be done on Saturday at 5:00 pm.
I am excited about it but man, it is a lot of work !
David has been great helping me whenever he can, with putting labels on things, packaging things up, and pricing stuff, not to mention putting up with the edgy Queen ! ;)
I am down to the final designing of the layout of my table today. Display ! I am a bit of a loony when it comes to placing things just right. That is great when working in a zen garden but not so great when you have a few short days and a teeny tiny budget to put out all your wares on a 6 foot long table ! Oh well...deep breaths and my great deBroin eye for detail will save the day, I think.
Not only do I miss posting and visiting and commenting in Blogland, but I am missing playing in my art journal big time ! This morning I did a piece because I just HAD TO ! All this crafty stuff is fine to make a few bucks but my soul is an artist's soul and it needed to speak today !
The page started with a painted background to which I added this figure from a mask made with a "praying" lady from an ad in a magazine.
Added some pieces of painted papers for the triangles, a flower shaped rubber stamp, some pen work with white Elmers Pen pens and black Indian Ink with a dip pen, and here is what I ended up with...(click to enlarge)

I love the idea of prayer changing you inside and out rather than giving all the power to some Being outside of ourselves.
In my mind, we are children of God and we have the power to change things for ourselves and our world.
and through Love, sweet Love...
Taking the time to do the journal page is like taking the time to pray for me. I will admit that this was some rushed praying today, but I feel better for having taken that time and also for taking the time to share it with my community of artist souls. :)
I think it has changed me just enough to get through all the little details of the day a little more calmly and peacefully...
I promise to catch up with you all asap, beautiful Ones !
Big Wednesday Love!
