Here it is...Jodi's creation for me! I love, love, love it.

She is so talented and open to try new art techniques--which always turn out so lovely.

There really are no words to describe the special and sparkly qualities she brings to her creative work--not to mention that she brings all these same qualities to our friendship and the world!

Here is a poem I wrote inspired by our collaborative effort and this beautiful, happy heart, art piece:

A Happy Heart

Expressed and felt in waves of color,
images washed, buried, blurred
layer upon layer of hazy intentions,
but, in fact
is burning and

There is always the journey,
and thank heavens, a road map
leading me due east to my home, my forest, my ocean,
my people, my soul.

An offering of hope I see clearly now.
When the  mind doesn't over-think,
when you softly allow your heart to expand
and your hands to speak
there is nothing left but freedom
and sweet transformation.

How ever did she know?

Sneak Peek

So excited to have finally tapped into my inner artist to complete a mixed media art swap project with my lovely friend Jodi. (Thanks for your patience, Jodi!)

Here's the details: we each started a project. Then handed over the goods to each other. The sky was the limit!

This is what I got to work on:

Here's the finished product:
Can't wait to see what Jodi made! So fun!
