The Good Things

Happy Sky Watch Friday from our blustery beach.  Winter had tossed lots of big debris above the high tide line. Torn branches on this old tree confirm it has seen a few storms in its day but still holding fast on a pretty little point of sand.  Click the link see what bloggers from all over have found on their horizon to share with us this week.
This week's creative project is a good example of making the best of things, paint runs, ink smudges and colors that would not blend are all a bit of Wabi-Sabi perfect for ATCs.

Sand Tracks

‎"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting."  (Mister) Fred Rogers

Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone.  Back to photos of the beautiful wild places of northern NSW this week with wallaby tracks in the sand.  It was a blustery windy day and we found the wallaby around the corner resting in a sunny spot.  Follow the links to see what bloggers from all over have found in their own patch of the sky to share with us this week.
Or click the links to my post on Helmar this week creatively using adhesives for fun new projects. 
Updated to add a peek at some of the ATCs I have been working on with pretty Creative Imaginations products for their gallery call linked here.

The Best Day

“Write in your heart that every day is the best day of the year.” Ralf Waldo Emerson

Isn’t that a lovely thought to start a day, and I love the view up this very long road on the beach, some days it is foggy and overcast and some days it is so bright you can almost see to the earth curving over the horizon.  Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what other bloggers have found in their own patch of the sky.
For me the best day is any day I get to follow my dreams and play with colour.

Another view from one of my favorite beaches in the early morning hazy light. Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what our blogging friends have found in their sky to share with us this week.

Happy news/happy mail kind of weeks are the best. This week it was a wonderful parcel from the very creative Diana Hetherington from Canada’s Martimes.
And then a open call for ATCs from Creative Imaginations which sounds really exciting.  If you are not sure about ATCs, here is a link to an old post of on the subject.
