Today I would like to share with you the project I created as a Guest Designer on Susan K. Weckesser’s blog.
Years ago I came to the realization that my brain works as, what I have labeled to be, a “visual translator.” It is almost as though the words I read or hear are of a foreign language until my brain interprets them into a visual scene.
Over time I have enjoyed bringing many of these visualizations to life through my creations, the most recent of which I will share with you today.
A while back my husband suggested I pursue my dream, to which I responded with “when pigs fly.” Well, I am currently living that dream, as owner of a gallery and gift shop called Joyful Nest in which my studio resides.
As I looked at the supplies Susan K. Weckesser gave me to play with, her pink Susiebee Studios Inc. “Bouquet” paper made me think of a pig and reminded me of the flying pig reference mentioned above. Then I saw her “Create” word stamp and thought of a quote that says “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” With that inspiration and the supplies listed below, my project was completed.
So, the next time you feel like your circumstances make it impossible to follow your heart and pursue your dreams, be sure to remember that anything is possible if you create it! Yes, even pigs can fly if you give them wings.
Wishing you smiles and sunshine,
