I try to immerse myself into creating... wanting just to lock the door to my little world and make something pretty to lighten my heart a little ... but often my thoughts stray back to my loved ones, and to my own hurts... and I remind myself the teachings of practical philosophy..."when you become aware of negative emotions of any kind creeping in almost unnoticed... turn to the cool light of the present"
In the present my "something pretty" notebook is born
This for the Play Date Cafe Challenge which is based on a lovely picture courtesy of Marthastewart.com .......
There is something so soothing about that soft baby pink ... and yet a strength in the bold red ....
Sparkly tulle, glitter and chipboard ..... delicate glass button, lace and pearled butterfly..... and I am soothed.
