Art Exchange- There's a hole in the.........


These are my 2 cards made for an Art Exchange.  The theme was "There is a hole in the...." 
I made 2 cards with holes in them.  I am loving the Touch markers, I enjoy making various textures with them.

What are you up to this weekend?  I would love to hear from you.  If you are interested in doing a card/craft swap, please let me know, I would love to participate.

Happy Krafting,

Start Where You Are- Action Changing Attitude

Meera Lee Patel is a self-taught artist who firmly believes that " the act of starting somewhere first-anywhere" is the first step in taking us where we would like to be in our lives.

The first page in the book is written in a rainbow of colors and states "Every Answer Is Inside You". I simply had to read more.

Meera Lee Patel introduces herself by writing  "It took me a long time to become comfortable with where I am."  That statement alone hit me as I am constantly trying to figure myself out; spiritually, mentally and artistically.  

This book is filled with beautiful artwork, and inspiring quotations, as well as a variety of written prompts.  This book has followed me everywhere.  When I need a break, I pull out the book, read some of the fabulous quotes, and do at least one of the activities within it's pages.  I am really learning about myself, and enjoying this inner journey.

Thank you Meera, your book has touched me, and you are indeed helping me become more comfortable being exactly where I am in life.
