Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

I missed last Sunday as I spent the day driving home from Montreal - an eight hour trip. We had spent almost a week there, attending my father-on-law's funeral and being with family.

Small Zens
In the car, I actually made a few more small zen cards (on old business cards - great way to use them up).

They were relaxing and fun to do.

Practicing Gratitude
This is a new challenge through Bernice at "Newly Creative". I had started this challenge at the beginning of the month but am now returning to it. This is the 2nd day - "Creative" - using plastic wrap on wet paint.

Here is the background I created:

Then I added photos of what I am thankful for and 2 quotes.

(This journal page is also being linked for Journal 52 - using photographs)

Full Flower Moon Dreamboard
The 14th was the full flower moon and I finally created a dreamboard. The question to focus on was"
                                        "How do you wish to bloom?"

Writing and art are where I want to bloom, but as well I want to thrive and live my best life.

I was able to make some Heart Inchies:

Spring brings flowers and here are a few more from our gardens:

Sorry about your FIL. I know "car" art can be very soothing. Everything is beautiful here.

Sorry about your loss, Bev. I lost my aunt at the beginning of this month. I know how it feels. But drawing kept my mind on track.
Wonderful art!
