Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Do You Lose Your Head Or Bounce Back?
I am writing this post on Monday and as I look out the window, snow is on the ground!  Yes, it's May 12th and there is snow on the ground!  In Denver we are taught not to plant our flowers until after Mother's Day and this year that advice was spot on!  Who would have expected inches of snow to fall after enjoying such beautiful spring weather?!?!  Some of our aliums had already bloomed and I was worried about them.  With their 3-foot-tall stalks, there wasn't much we could do other than watch and hope.  Some of the flowers that had opened ended up being too challenged by the snow and the flower blooms fell off - in effect, the flowers lost their heads :(  Others however, seemed to bend with the weight of the snow and now, as the snow melts, they are bouncing back into an upright position - blooms still intact.  It makes me wonder about myself.  How easily do I lose my head?  Or, can I let the weight of the world bring me down a bit and then find my strength to bounce back?  I will never look at those aliums the same way again...
Today I am sharing an art journal page that I created for Paper Crafter's Library.  I have been having a lot of fun with collage and painted papers and this page grew out of that love.  If you are interested in the full "how to" videos for the page, head on over to Paper Crafter's Library and look into subscribing for a month or more.  To learn more about Paper Crafter's Library, click on the badge on the upper-right corner of my blog.  Thanks for stopping by!
