Wonderful Gifts

Angela tagged me with a meme of 7 statements about myself. So here they are. If you are reading this you are tagged.

1. I love the quote "Follow your Bliss" by Joseph Campbell. Its how I try to live my life.
2. My favorite poet in Mary Oliver, and my favorite poem by her is called The Journey.
3. I love books, I have several bookshelves full. Sometimes I will give one I don't need anymore away and other times I can not bear to part with them.
4. Blogging has changed my life in many ways, mainly with all the wonderful women that I have met all over the world. They are the best, you know who you are.
5. I like collecting rocks and shells, and other things from nature.
6. I like to help others find their creativity, When I taught classes it would irk me so much when women would say they weren't creative, I would say back everyone is creative and hope to show them a little of their own creativity.
7. I love keeping a journal, some I write in some I draw in, some I do both in. The worst thing for me would be to be somewhere with out pen and paper. I have a notebook of some sorts with me at all times.me

I received another birthday gift. This time from Lisa Oceandreamer. She sent this hand painted mug and crown for my weaving room. She also sent some make your own prayer flags. I just love her work and she is just the sweetest person on the planet. Thanks Lisa.































Then I won Anna's birthday giveaway and got these. I just love the Angel, she is just gorgeous. The notebook is in my favorite color so you can't beat that. Thanks Anna.
