"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.

you know the dream where you are back in school and you forgot an article of clothing???

i kind of feel like that.

about my last post...i used an image that was not mine,  i did a packing tape transfer of an image awhile back and did not post it because it was not mine and i could not remember where i got it from.

wrote a quote above it and posted it, not thinking about the image below it. 

The owner of the image Ceci Tucker contacted me.  She was very kind, and just asked me to credit her. 

In contacting her and apologizing I found she has a wonderful funky and fun etsy shop
 take a peek!
This is no small thing, this has made me very aware of how careful I need to be in using images I find on the internet in my journal, even for personal use and to be sure I write down who it belongs to.

Ceci, thank you for your kindness and gentleness in your response.

Ooh Mary, it's such a minefield! Copyright terrifies me, and it's so hard to keep track of where you got things from. Also, copyright law itself is so confusing.
Glad you were able to sort this one out 'nicely'. I love what you did with the image very much ( I love all of your art anyway!). Off to check out the ETSY shop now!

Thank you for YOUR kindness! As I said before, your artwork is absolutely beautiful! I hope this doesn't keep you from creating more masterpieces! Glad to have met you :)
