Dream Catcher

Still catching some dreams……

My daughter, Shayne, made this beautiful dream catcher last night.  It was AMAZING, spending some alone time, some creative time with her.  Listening to her talk about school, about life, and the dreaded topic….boys.  YIKES!  I watched her rummage through my charms and ribbon….intent on making something so uniquely her.  I loved watching her wrap the twine and tie on the charms…and then that proud look when she said “Hey mama…I’m done, do you like it?”  I absolutely LOVE it.  She set it above her bed….sweet dreams to you, my girl.

This morning we woke up and started prepping some silk for dream catcher #3.  I’m not sure how good the silk will take to watered down distress ink refill.  I’m going to let it soak today, hang on the clothes line tonight and let the sun do it’s magic while I’m at work tomorrow.  Keeping fingers crossed that the silk takes the colors.

Trying something different….

I am too embarrassed and frustrated to admit how many journal pages I started over the last few weeks, only to tear them to shreds and throw them away.  So, I have set aside art journaling for awhile and made a list of other things I’d like to try:

  1. Make that dream catcher I have been meaning to make.
  2. Boho bunting for my art space.
  3. Gratitude Banner

It works….stepping away from a place where you have expectations of yourself into something, where you recognize you are a learner, you are allowed to make mistakes.

I just need to fully embrace the fact that I am a learner in journaling too.  I never compare my work with other people’s creations.  I spend too much time comparing things I make to things I made.  need.to.stop

But for now, I enjoyed stepping outside my element and making a dream catcher.  It was fun, wrapping the cord with the fabric was therapeutic.   Just sat in bed, listening to music, drinking my coffee, vaping and making this beauty that will protect me while I sleep….

Hey, thanks for stopping by.  Have a creative and amazing weekend.  peace, xoxo
