This week at ABC Wednesday - F is front and centre.
I had started my cards for this week, then yesterday morning, I fell, onto my knee and elbow, tripping over some boots. I feel stiff and sore still today, so I did not finish the cards I have been creating each week. I will share next week.
At least I did not fall flat on my face!
I am glad as well that I didn't make Funniest Home Videos - just me and my son saw me- who had the grace not to laugh.
Be sure to check here to see what others did for F.
Here we are on the first Friday of February and time for ART on Friday.
Here are few things I've worked on this week.
With the full moon on January 31, I created a dreamboard, to focus on what deep dreams I hope will be brought to the surface in the coming month. The power of this full moon seemed to be magnified as it was a super moon, a blue moon and an eclipse. I hope that translates into more power to my dreamboard!
More is my OLW and I really want to do more and be more. May February bring it on!
I enjoy taking part in the many challenges online. Here are several I have participated in this week:
This week at ABC Wednesday, D is the letter of focus.
D is for Dance.
Continuing with my "More" series, focusing on what I want to have more in my life, DANCE is definitely something I want to do more of. In my twenties, my exercise of choice was dance - I would put on a tape I made and just dance, for 30 or 40 minutes each night. (It was certainly a great way to lose weight!)
There are so many great dance songs - many by lady Gaga and the BeeGees. How freeing it is to just feel the music and dance.
I had to give it up a few years ago when arthritis made it painful to dance. But I have decided I need to start again, with baby steps, to recapture the joy of dancing.
Here are the art cards I created to remind to just dance.
Be sure to check here to see what others around the world do for D.
Each week at Stamping Ground, Julia Dunnit encourages us to share our work spaces and what we we are working on.
I created the backgrounds for the cards above at my art table. Right now it is needing a major clean up. I need to reorganize the whole room - beginning first with finding new homes for my teaching books (well over a hundred books)
Then I finished the cards with the quotes at my dining room table.
Here are a few things I have worked on this week.There are many challenges each week and I've chosen three this week to do.
Sunday Postcard Art
This week's theme at "Sunday Postcard Art" was "Secret Garden"
I had originally decided to use a number of flower stamps, but when i found this quote, I created this:
Take a Word Challenge
At "Take a Word Challenge" the theme was music.
I had some used stamps of country singers and the quote by Faith Hill worked well.
The theme at "Try it on Tuesday" was "Fire and Ice" - or using warm and cool colours."
I have a lot of scrap painted papers and decided to do a cool and a warm page in my small collage book.
Inspiration Quote Card
To help me focus on my OLW (One Little Word)- More - I am making a set of inspiration cards. Here is the second one I created this week. (The first you can check here which I created for ABC Wednesday)
