This tag was a real labor of love. I've been thinking a lot about what I'm finding. For awhile I was finding all kinds of money but the last month or so it's been feathers. Up north I found a beautiful one which looks to be from a woodpecker - black with white polka dots. So I took the feather theme and interpreted it telling me that it's time to take flight. I wasn't sure whether to just build the tag around feathers and flying or to get deeper and write about the less tangible things I have "found". I like the result although I may re-do the "Q27" part in the magnifying glass once I get more of photoshop under my belt. The wings are attached with brads which means I can fold them down too.

Time for art this last month has been almost non-existent so the last few days I have set my alarm for 5:00 a.m. and have managed to get 2 to 2 1/2 hours in the studio first thing in the morning. It's been great, I feel fresh and I am very much alone, at the least for the first hour or so. The journaling reads:

"Lately I have been finding all kinds of feathers! Take flight Kimmer! I have also found: Most days I really do the best that I can - There is so much more to discover - I feel just the same inside as I did when I was a kid - My sense of wonder is unfathomable - Guidance has become an intricate and undeniable part of my existence - Love really is the answer"

Happy weekend to all. I am off to the cottage for a few days.

Love the feathers and that you take the time to think about the significance of what you don't just say "oh that's nice" delve a little deeper. Even getting up so early (!) to have that quiet time to yourself...shows how connected you are to yourself and to what's around you.

Enjoy the weekend at the cottage!! This one is our long weekend in Ontario...may the weather treat us both well!

I've been finding feathers also. I'm an early bird, too. Love working while the birds serenade me.

Love that you have been finding feathers...especially black and white magical polka dot ones. You are taking flight in many ways and isn't it great when the universe comfirms that this is exactly what you are supposed to be doing ?
So glad you have found Love is the answer is working for for over and over again.
Enjoy a love filled weekend, lovley Kim !
