Q30

*e*'s question number 30: Who do you need to thank?

I loved the experience of putting this one together. I knew I wanted the visual to be of hands in prayer position, with head bowed, mouth touching. I was about to set up my tripod to take a picture of me doing that when I heard a little birdie tell me to look in some magazines. I picked up an old "O" (all I have are old O's but the content is still dandy) and opened to the page showing a photo of a man in that exact position. Unbelievable! Scan, print, voila! It was so exciting to have that kind of guidance. I could have kept listing who I need to thank, but space was limited so it was just the first things that came to mind. Also, I was trying out a new stamper I just got so the printing is kind of shoddy. I did learn a lot about that tool doing this tag.

Journalling on the back, "My friends for recognizing what I need and lightening my burdens. Nature for surprising me every time. My dogs for bringing me out into that nature, especially when I'd rather stay in. My sista for believing in me. Riley for showing me sides of myself I didn't know were there and for bringing me gifts I didn't know existed."

I'm glad you share these questions. They inspire me. I've made my own list of who to thank - and many a blogger is on it!

I love how something comes to us in an inspiration, a thought, a knowing and it guides us where we need to be. The fact that you were planning to do a "prayer" pose is all I needed to know to "why" you found something so perfect!

I love it when things come together like that too ! My mom gave me her entire collection of O Mags about three years ago - a huge bok full. I used many of them for classes I have taught etc... and I do think that images and the pages themselves are full of great things for journals or in yoru case, tags !
So much to be thankful for, right girlfriend ?
Happy Tuesday ! Good luck with the clutter !
