Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Do you remember the U2 song "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For?" I've been interpreting the refrain a bit differently these days. I still haven't found what I'm looking for - literally. Because how can you find something if you don't know what you are looking for? Or maybe that's just it - maybe you find all that you need without even looking for it. Do I have to decide where I want to live and what I want to do with my life? Or do I just keep doing whatever it is that I am doing and somehow I will find what needs to be found? As we discuss the whole idea of moving to the mountains I keep wondering - do I want to be a mountain woman? or do I want to be a farmer? or do I want to be an artist? or do I want to be an author? Do I have to decide before I can take action? Can you tell I'm confused? What I do know, is that I don't want to remain in a state of confusion and find myself still "spinning" these thoughts a number of years down the road to find that I haven't done anything at all. Maybe a mountain top is just what I need - a place to go and be still - be with my thoughts and the sounds of my soul. For now, that's exactly what I'm looking for :)
Today's card is simple and full of space (a theme of mine lately)! I used Riding Hood Red ink at full and half strength with an image from Summer Silhouettes. The sentiment is from From My Heart and was stamped with Early Espresso. A simple neutrals button with hemp twine adds a finishing touch! :) I hope you have a beautiful, creative and peaceful weekend!
