we filled up my dining room table with two 10x10 canvases, a stack of magazines, modge podge, paints, and una botela de vino rojo ;)
as with any creative process, there was the usual resistance, confusion, frustration, and bliss. we move through it. we help each other understand why we're in the depths of it. and on the other side? we find ourselves having loved the process and the end product, too. the promise that somehow, in the midst of our creative calamity, dreams are nurtured, and being nurtured, born, makes it all worth it.
our craft time in photos:

|erin's dreamboard is colorful, and the story of being lifted. her board is layered with patterns and the central focus is a lovely hot air balloon, and the mantra: love my greatest self. beautiful, erin, just beautiful!|
about erin's dreamboard:
|my dreamboard's colors chose themselves. my central focus is on enjoying the harvest of life (a theme, remember my engagement story?).|
while wellness, beauty, my relationship with paul, and physical activity often manifest themselves on my dream board, i noticed a real theme this month. a break all the rules by doing it your way theme. a savor the best piece first. a don't-wait-act NOW theme! and this board boasts representation of those themes.
ultimately: the permission to FULLY enjoy and savour the magnificence of life---- I shall wait no more.
so now: i'm off to savour and explore what ripe fruits are waiting on the tree of life...just for me!
wishing you a reflective and inspiring full moon!
Stephanie (& Erin!)
