I love swapping! Thanks so much, Heather! You rock the swaps, girl! Can't wait for the next one!!!
Okay, let's see...Here's a little peice I made reflecting my current mood. It's entitled Disheartened and I made it in my creative journal. I love trying to match my mood to my art. It helps me process, you know? The words at the bottom of the cage say "She sometimes felt disheartened". At the top, in the corner, it says "His affection for her soon sunk into indifference". I'm feeling a little bit "trapped" these days. Powerless, I guess, in certain areas of my life.
Soooo, enough moping, already!
On a more positive note...I have some of the BEST friends! Seriously! One of my dearest girlfriends just LOVES to give things to me. She's the one who gave me the red dogwood tree I blogged about a while ago. Just GAVE it to me! Well, she's gone and outdone herself! She has this wonderful husband who bought her a new camera for her birthday. An upgrade. She takes GORGEOUS photos of anyone that will let her, and even some who won't. So, she's got this new awesome camera, and guess what? She GAVE me her old one! Wouldn't let me pay her one penny for it!!! Actually, she is going to let me bake a cake for her son's dedication ceremony. Good deal, right? A camera for a cake!! Here it is:
LOVE IT!!! Well, I know I will when I figure it out! I don't know how to use the darn thing, so these pictures were actually taken with my faithful old Kodak. I've definitely gotta take some lessons from her. Thanks Cassandra! You are such a beautiful person and great friend! I am blessed by you...
Well, that's it for now. Have a great day!
