I've unpacked most of the boxes, hung pictures on the walls, tossed a few things, decorated all over again after the mini apartment renovation but my desk is still a mess. I am so glad that the BF has been gone the past few days (I miss him dearly but it means that I was able to use the coffee table as my creative space and I didn't have to put things away at the end of the day - hee hee).
I've spent much time taking pictures, editing pics, and paging through magazines. I am always amazed at the messages from the universe that are sprinkled throughout magazines. I'm going to attempt to create journals when I am home visiting my family. My niece is going to help with this fun project.
I've twisted a few more flower pendants - now to add the button or beads to the center.
I hope I've found enough messages to embellish the pages of the journals - well enough that at least a few of them speak to my niece. My Dad scored a few old wallpaper books from the local paint store in my home town. Our plan is to gesso, stitch, mod podge, and I'm sure we'll find sequins, glitter, lace and other treasures in my Mom's craft drawers that we can steal from to add beauty to our journals. I'll share our creations or at least our progress next week.
Messages from the Universe -- I know that is my usual Monday post but as you travel this week or the next time you sit down with your favorite magazine. Notice the messages that are speaking to you. They really are all around you.
As you enjoy your cup of coffee or tea today, jump on over to Stamping Ground and check our some other creative desks as part of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday to see what they've been working on.
