Getting organised

Art prompts galore 

DEC. 18-24: RED// SCAVENGER: blue , silver or gray, something from a recent purchase, a piece of giftwrap, rubber stamping, a bit of ribbon or trim, circles, 3 inspiring words, stars, an image of your choice

I still have the final scavenger spread to complete but as I'm off out this afternoon celebrating a friend turning 55 it won't happen today!

Journal 52

Week 51 Release: 

Set free from restraint. Let go. Relief or deliverance from sorrow, suffering, or trouble. The state of being freed. Synonyms: Emancipation, liberation, unbinding, unchained, unfettered. Prompt: Consider what you’d like to release and leave behind. Create a spread that expresses the sense of relief and release you might feel when you let go.

Oracle: What needs to be released? What are you most wanting to let go of? What might come about if you release control, expectations, what no longer serves you, or what binds you?

Week 52:

Desire: a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. Synonyms:need, passion, thirst, wish, yearning, admiration, ardor, attraction.

Prompt: Create a spread that expresses your desires for next year. This could be about what you want to let go of or what you want to invite in. Be bold in stating what your wants and needs are. Oracle: What is your relationship with desire? What do you desire the most? What direction are your desires propelling you in?

Journal 52 ceases to be a free group in the new year so I'm going to be dropping this one after participating for the past 4 years & 1 change of organiser....we shall see if I find another to takes it place. I chose to leave positiv journal because I was not keen on the format and DLP was dropped by the 4 organisers and then reinvented as Life Documented.... that's the way life is!

WEEK 52 with Randi Kollhoff North.

Quote: “Have yourself a merry little Christmas (holiday)…” lyricist Ralph Blane

The only way this journal is going to stay closed is with a belt around its middle!

My journals are not on a diet! Nor am I for that matter unless the orthopaedic consultant says I need to be, it's certainly not that I eat a lot but rather a case of excess art in stead of sport but in the current weather situation I would definitely rather be indoors lol.

 May I wish each and every one of you a wonderful new year full of joy, health & happiness, I promise to keep coming round and visiting your blogs as well as leaving comments in 2018 - my thanks for all the visits & comments that you've all been kind enough to leave.

Happy 2018!!!!!
