Dark Mornings......

I love mornings and it was soo noticable that this Monday morning was dark and autumnal! in comparison to the bright morning of Friday 21st, mindue the weather is a little differnet too....however I'd snapped a couple of shots to remind me of the energy of the brighter morning as keeping a small part of summer for even the darkest of winter is where i am at in my head in order to continue my morning rituals and stay well throughout the darker season. big art album...

When I created my canvas covered album I started with a portrait and thought that would be what I would devote the album to...however, I draw every day and a portrait doesn't come every day but other things dooooo and my tree of life was a scrummy inspired by my trip up to Edinburgh at the festival time... ..i'm finding it soul replenishing using using conte crayons and pastel pencils for this album its all that smudging with my fingers I enjoy.....

Book of Days ......catch up

Oh wow what an amazing whirlwind of a few weeks ....all sooooooo full of joy and gratitude for me....sometimes i experience all my blessings at once and August and September have reminded me of that.I am filling my book of days ...but not really posting the pictures very much..For me my Book of days is a rather amazing revelation it coupled with my daily yoga is my tool to get through my stressful days of the week! it has therapeutic value and it isn't a pretty looking journal and sometimes i feel a little shy about bearing it's content ...its a map of how i experience life and being a sensitive soul it can all prove to be quite overwhelming and deep..however its purpose as being part of my weekly setting of intention and staying focused has really been beneficial.I put my self care intentions in my journal for Monday and then this weekI thought i would cover over the intentions as.. symbolic way of say i'd achieved them and i then started to add some pretties....I may not do this ever week but it felt right this week ...I loved these words they settled in my psyche for the week as I made my offering each day of this week in my yoga practice and i will be added it book of days page.."Stay centered in the beauty of the morning to be open for the blessings awaiting you as the day goes by........"

Last  two weeks processing of 'intense and joyful happenings' oh and my poorly week....i'd plans to create a lovely page with a postcard  from Edinburgh and still did my page with the energy i had ...I might go back to it.

A flurry of creative energy

I have had a flurry of inspiration this week.I feel well, the sun is shining I'm moving on some of my little albums and I have been full of 'ponderings'...nice ponderings about life..about change about my quirks and the lovely things i have in my life... my grateful little heart is bursting.! 
These three little albums where the fruits of my inspiration this week ....its a special week for me with birthday, anniversary, son going to university and I was also pondering the forthcoming cooler darker months whilst savouring the 'Indian summer we are having (how i need encouragement to get through those of the album start with my favourite quotes about keeping a 'little bit of summer' for those months ...) these sentiment themed albums came from my 'ponderings' they were lovely to create and would be even better to share and savour the joy and encourage the 'cherishment' of dreams and encourage movement through change.
