Two New Cards


I Am One Who is receptive.
I Am One Who believes in the infinity of inspiration.
I Am One Who welcomes the pouring in of Spirit.


I Am One Who bites off more than I can chew.
I Am One Who wants to do so many different things.
I Am One Who thinks of one thing while I'm doing another.
I Am One Who finds contentment and grounding in arts and crafts.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These cards definitely represent parts of me who wanted to be heard. Both of them have elements that insisted on being there.

I thought the top card was done but then I saw the face of the woman who seems to have magic running through her fingers and I just had to add it to the card so I placed it in one of the pots.

On the second one, the background image had words on it. It was an ad that talked about the woman getting a call frOM her trainer. I looked for images to cover the words. I found the woman knitting and thought it was perfect but then the image decided to go under the "om." I looked for other images to cover om but finally I heard the neter who was telling me that sometimes when I have burned myself out on "spirituality," the simple act of stitching (especially crochet) can make me feel grounded and centered.

It's such a great process.

These are beautiful. I especially like the second one and it really hits home for me. I'm the one who wants to do everything! And I usually bite off more than I can chew!
