there’s a light at the end of the tunnel

i’ve been clearing the clutter away

it’s been such a painful experience

because the clutter wants to stay..

but this disease has got to go

it has been with me far too long

so it is time for clutter bug and i

to find something new to do

i already feel the freedom

and seeing a little light

as i say goodbye to clutter bug

because i want clutter out of my sight..

thoughts

A Walk in the Park

Nothing like a walk to clear the mind..

DSC_0135make each day count

in some little way

leave yesterday behind

for this is a new day

don’t dwell on the negatives

for it won’t feed your soul

only zap you of energy

 and down you will go

so look up today

from where your help comes

and be filled with the love

and the peace of the Son..

inspiration

Inspired

After visiting the blog, Alice and Molly, I was inspired to tackle a small creative project. I am one to buy fabric and have good intentions, but I lose my enthusiasm easily. This seemed to be simple enough and I had fabric that I thought would work well together. Here is my completed pennant banner.

I think that the bobbin on my sewing machine is not threaded right and it was affecting my sewing, so I went with sewing by hand. I know what I would do differently next time.

While working on this I kept whistling the song, His Banner Over Me.. I bet you didn’t know that I like to whistle..Lol!

Texture Tuesday: free and easy

2014-12-030A little flower power for all of you today.. As I searched my files I had a few ideas and was looking for something to jump out at me. I settled for the bouquet of Carnations that were in the guest bedroom. I love playing with the processing and really like when I get that vintage look. As we approach the change of year, I am pondering and thinking of what is important to me for this new year. For a starter I want to be in the moment and not think I need stuff to keep me full and happy. I want to wake up each morning and say “thank you,” for a new day to experience, to see, to listen, to be still, to learn things I haven’t learned yet, and to hear clearly the words.. this is the way.. May the New Year bring peaceful experiences and contentment and much more to this world. A Happy and Blessed New Year to you, my friends!

Falling Into Place

DSCN6682This morning, I thank the mystery person that left me a note to write, write, write! Thank you for that reminder!

So, it brings me to that place of thinking of all the reasons and excuses I have to not write. I think that what I have best to offer is to go with my original idea of writing from my heart. It is where all of me is stored up in files, life experiences, the failures, the successes, the doubts, the highs and lows, faith, fears and more. Observing these petals this morning made me think about how my life is falling into place after a major move, just over six months ago. I often have to  combat fear of not having the potential. In my day-to-day existence I strive for low key…peaceful days. I really like simplicity, and therefore have been trying to not jump to quickly for finding  things to keep me busy. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities that one can commit to in our area. I am careful to not overextend myself and being prayerful about this helps to keep me in order. The following is a little artsy endeavor I am working on. The last collage I did was in 2012. It was a first time experience for me. It was simple and fun. Kind of childlike but it brought something out in me, that maybe I actually missed out on during  my childhood.

I am not finished..

DSCN6672I like this!

DSCN6693Each day, truly is a gift. It may not feel like it, or look like it, but there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel, if you wake up and and start your day on the sunny-side up.
