Hello, hello, nice to have you back to visit;
perhaps you will leave a little comment or become a follower.
I love to read your kind remarks.
Scrap Africa has changed things up a bit and we hope you will like
the challenge this fortnight which is simply "Lists"
It can be a page, a card, an OTP, any topic, any colour.
CLICK HERE to see what the DT and guest designers have created.
Most of my lists are functional, like shopping, packing for holidays,
ordinary stuff, hardly worth creating a page about.
I decided to make a tag holder with inspirational words
by Louise L. Hay, which I can use when meditating.
The latest of her books I have been reading is "Heart Thoughts,"
a beautifully illustrated, colourful book, chock full of wisdom
First, I made the background on chipboard, using a technique I learned in class from
If you don't know her Art, do yourself a favour and check out her blog;
she is extremely talented, and generous with her knowledge.
The topiary tree, the chippy lace and the words are from Scrapmatts.
The papers are from Maja, "Coffee in the arbour" collection.
I created a gusset in the side of the paper to make room for eight tags to go in the pocket easily.
The words are paraphrased from the book and printed directly onto the tags.
Then I used texture paste and various stencils for texture,
before spraying with Lindy's stamp gang mists.
The tags are a bit hard to read here, so I've typed them out, if you are interested.
Try to meditate outside for at least 10 mins a day.
Just sit quietly. “Be” in the moment and connect with the Universe and Joy.
Yelling at the little girl inside only makes things worse.
She is frightened and hurt.
Embrace her and say you will always love her.
Ask yourself why you are angry? What am I sorry for?
Identify the feeling beneath the anger and gently let it go.
Replace the negative thoughts
like fear of pain, loneliness, loss and grief.
Open yourself to harmony, peace,
renewal of the spirit.
Be gentle and kind with yourself.
Comfort your inner child, as you release
negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones.
Don’t chastise your self too much for your mistakes,
that is how we learn.
Love yourself for your willingness to try again.
One of the gifts of loving
yourself and loving others,
is the feeling of tranquility and
well being that it generates.
Forgive your Parents
for their perceived mistakes.
They did the best they could with the
they had at the time.Thank them..
