"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Pretty pages...I'm posting my new journal pages too. I'm new to journalling so sometimes I just sit there and go, "oookay, what do I do?" I'm playing around with black gesso. It rocks!! Why do you clip your pages? Is it to hold them open for photographing? Just wondering. Have a great day! Hugs and smiles!

Really awesome.

Love the first one best but it's way too pretty to write on as a journal page; I'd rather frame it. The last one is the most inviting when it comes to putting pen to paper. Excellent work!

So beautiful Mary! All of them are filled with such wonderful color and filled with YOU. You have such a gift of the imagination with coming up with the special creations you create. Sometimes I wish I could just call you up and discuss how you did that!

Have a great weekend!
