"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.

Thank you for your response on my blog, Mary! I think it would be so much fun if you opened up an etsy shop! {I really love your work, and LOVE your graffiti painting on these cigar boxes and on your journaling pages!}

...recycling at it's most inventive and appealing! I wonder if a Whitman's chocolates box would work as well? It's just fabulous!!! Again, I'm inspired:)
