Recently received this postcard of a sculpture in Poland. Now I need to go to Poland to see it IRL, because it’s awesome! Thank you #postcrossing for connecting people all around the world!by
I know, I know. It’s supposed to be a grid. And I tried, really I did! But the circles were just sitting there, BEGGING to be used. So was the flag. It’s been sitting there since before Christmas. Looking at me. And I got new washi tape. And had tea. In an actual bag…
But there are lots of fun textures on here, aren’t there!
Watercolors, fabric tape, cardstock, tape, a tea bag tag, a lovely flag, and a fun little Russian doll.
It makes me happy.by
A single, simple word. But what does it mean?
Every person will have a different reaction to this little word. For some it may mean letting go of things they have been clinging to. For others, maybe they want to release excess baggage – be it extra weight (physical), or toxic relationships (emotional & mental). Some may even think of falling – releasing the thing that was keeping them held up. Or held back.
I don’t know what Release means to you, but I sat down (with a bit of help from my girls) and wrote out some of the things that release could mean.
This is my year to Release. And there is SO MUCH that I want to release. I want to get rid of much of the excess ‘stuff’ we have cluttering up our home & garage. I want to let go of the junk that is cluttering up my mind too. I want to stop looking back at the past – release it & the hold that it still has on me – and step into the future that God has for me – whatever that looks like. I also want to let go of fear – that fear that whispers in my mind when I try to do something new – and step past it’s limitations and see just how far I can go.
I want to forgive.
I want to purge.
I want to leave fear in the past.
I want to stop clinging to “safe” and take a leap of faith.
I want to release my inner Artist in a way that I never have before.
I want to release creativity into my life & the lives of those around me.
Release from the chains of a constantly on-the-edge bank account would be good too. 😉
How about you?
What does 2015 hold for you?
You see, Release is my One Word for 2015. One little word to remember every day. One word to think of. One thing to do.
What is your word?
This is a joint post, so to speak. It fulfills the 8th prompt for Daisy Yellow’s Prompt60, and it is also my word for the One Word 365 campaign. Check both of them out – both are good for bringing about that release. 🙂by
This is is my submission for the Daisy Yellow’s Prompt60 No. 6 – Layers.
I decided to go with the image in the middle (painted by http://dark134.deviantart.com/ & modified by me in photoshop) and then surround it with ephimera guided by color.
There are 2 quotes on here – the song the Hatter sings:
“Twinkle, twinkle little bat
How I wonder what you’re at
Up above the world you fly
Like a tea tray in the sky…”
and the quote from Tim Burton’s 2010 movie:
“There is a place. Like no place on earth.
A land full of wonder, mystery, & danger!
Some say to survive it, you need to be as mad as a Hatter.
Which luckily I am.”
