    Small Canvas Big heART

    The moment I discovered art cards, I was in LOVE!  They were small enough to finish in one setting, great for art-on-the-go, and somehow, somehow…… the small canvas could hold big parts of my heart!  I’ve been making these little beauties for a decade now, and in the last few months, I started a creative practice that speaks to me both creatively and spiritually. I am delighted to bring you along on this journey of self-discovery with me.  Creativity Tribe is hosting the Templekeeper’s Oracle Journey.  This is a 21 day eJourney…. an on-line class… designed to give you a simple but powerful creative practice in the form of art…

    Painting Up a Storm

    There is a storm in my body.  I think it has been brewing for a long time, although I didn’t know it.  Recently it made itself known in a big way.  And now, I am sitting on the front porch of my soul watching it pass over me. In the last several weeks it has felt so big that all I knew to do was sit with it. As luck would have it, I was in my studio the other night, and I began painting while I was doing that sitting.  The painting felt good.  I could tell it was doing something in my body.  Something…a hormone or feel good chemical,…

    Plant a Kiss, Too!

    In the spirit of Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s work,18 bloggers set out to “Plant a Kiss” in the world on April 29. We each did something we thought would spread a little extra joy, color, connection, poetry, or magic in the world. Then we watched to see what would happen! Today all of us are posting about that experience.   This was my second Plant a Kiss celebration.  Last year I met with a few local creatives to make a labyrinth on the beach for others to find. It was one of the highlights of 2012 for me.  This year, I wanted my kiss to keep the same spirit of celebration but…

    Re-story-ing my Life

    I made it up the middle of the country.  I am sitting on beautiful Lake Geneva in Wisconsin, looking out the window at the Abbey Resort.  The sky is light blue with puffy little clouds, the water simmers with a restless kind of calm.  The trees outside my room (which are not a variety I am familiar with) have long strands of gold that hang from the limbs.  At there base on the side where the morning sun has not yet reached, a light layer of snow snuggles around budding stalks of green that looks like it may be the beginnings of blooming bulbs. I feel like I am blooming.…

    The Chocolate Eaters

    Sometimes it pays to walk along the fringe, out on that edge where the lay of the land isn’t quite known to you, where adventure is the word for the day.  That is where I roamed Sunday morning.  My journey there began quite awhile ago, with a whisper from deep inside about a path that might some day be mine. This card is my AEDM offering for day #9. It is inspired by a phrase I have been hearing a lot recently…. Get out of your own way! Several years ago I started hearing a rumble in my community, even saw part of a preview, about a movie, Chocolat,  in which…

    Life in All Its Fullness

    We all have a sacred path we sit in front of, sacred in the sense that it calls to our very soul. It whispers  in the darkness, twinkles around us in the light of day, makes us feel alive as we move down it or encourages us to wish for some place new when you have forgotten it and lost your way.  The path is like this huge magnet that directs our lives or makes us fight hard to move against it. We travel the road on our own, but if we are lucky, it runs parallel to the roads of others who are on their own shiny path.  Seeing…
