I believe everyone’s life has a purpose. We are here to discover that purpose then use whatever gifts were bestowed upon us to make this world a better place. Some of us are fortunate as we know at an early age what that purpose is. Others, well, we go along, often digressing from the road that will take us there. This is me. Now on the other side of 50, I am finding my way back to that road that will lead to my life’s purpose. Welcome to my journey.
anxious temperament prompts me to react rather than act, speak before I think,
or jump before I plan, I’ve learned to pause.
Those simple words, ‘Set your inner compass,’ remind me that I have the power to choose my
direction day by day and minute by minute.”
After reading this I thought, “I have to collage that!” I miss participating in the Summer
of Color Challengeand I thought I will create my own challenge! I selected 3
paint colors then pulled coordinating scrapbook paper, some stencils and I
started in. It felt REVITALIZING!

Yogi Tea tag ATC swap
This challenge required using yogi tea tags somewhere on
your ATC. I completed these before partners
were assigned so I decided to go with 2 different styles of ATC’s.
This is an ongoing series, swapping the various suits in a deck of playing cards. My partner liked Hitchcock, Nancy Drew, food
themes, eggnog year-round, grunge & modern designs, Sherlock Holmes and
abstract. I went with the abstract using
modeling paste pushed through stencils. I used
spray ink then Perfect Pearls Mists.
When done I felt they needed something but didn't want to go with
quotes. I went back to my Yogi teas and
added a tag to each.
MANY THANKS to those who left advice and encouragement last
week. This is why I love being a part of
this wonderful group..so loving and encouraging. It truly has helped.
