3 by 3 x 2

when you feel the gentle pull
to photograph . to write . to create
simple ordinary objects are seen differently

words signal emotions


used muslin bag softens to hearts

fresh idea

a drop of paint musters a new beginning


those of you reading this
write posts that stir the soul
wield a camera as an artists brush
create art in all mediums . simple and complex

the 3 x 3 collages below are
bits and pieces of ordinary seen differently
[with special messages on the back]

leave a comment at I STUDIO..
where my 3 x 3 collage appear each month
I will choose two names this Saturday night [10.2]
and announce them as "Sunday Shops" open

AWESOME!! Hey, you. I totally thought of you with the made by you component of my blog swap. I was stopping by to ask you "in person" if you would like to join my blog swap. I think it might be something you'd really enjoy. Of course I absolutely understand if you don't want to. Still... I'd be delighted to have you. Happy Friday! It's almost here. Oh, I forgot to say that sign up ends tomorrow night.

Your work is always so pleasant. I haven't been able to leave comments for you lately for some reason, glad to be able to say hello. :)

So very true. I love that grace in creation. And I love the grace in your creations.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment on my "night sky" post.

You have such a different and beautiful way of saying things that I know to be true! But have never thought of them in that way. I thank you for that.

It's amazing how you can put together simple bits and pieces into such beautiful compositions. I'm speculating that (in the light of day) you're an art teacher--I'd love to be in your class.

We each have strengths. Yes. Lovely.

your strength is gentle
yet strong,
like this stitching.
