1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / instead of going to jail I go to joy. REMINDER CARD on: May 16, 2018 01:50:51 PM


just got back from counseling. I was describing how awful I feel lately, which is part physical malady and part general exhaustion from moving.
Was reminded that I have never lost that flame of joy deep within me, the one I have had all my life through it all.

I got home and received bad news about an issue and instead of wallowing in anxiety I made this reminder card.  The phrase "go directly to joy" came to me and I realized how much it resembled the monopoly jail card so I based this on that card.  From watercolor board and the one remaining pen I have not packed. I plucked the board from the trash. I am living out of boxes til the new place is more ready for me to live in. Not much fun, very tiring, somewhat discouraging.
so I made this card to keep in my  pocket to remind me to steer myself correctly. I can go to what gives me joy. Like, right away, even if it is only in my head or imagination. Just now it was crafting. Next time it might be puttering in the dirt to find a charming earthworm. Or looking at clouds for shapes. Or singing my favorite goofy song.

EVen all my brushes are packed so I just dabbed on some paint with the end of my finger.

Keep and USE your own joy, my friends!!

Received my awesome creation from JoyfulClover!!!!!

made with papier mache.  And the rusted bit of wire used to make the bug is something she found while walking her dog which is so funny because I put in my note to her, that part of my creation was also found this way.

color is spot on for my absolute favorite!!
The piece is called "Something is Bugging Me!"

I am thrilled with the pop out quality of this. In the same way I love love love getting ATCs that go way beyond the normal boundaries.

lucious strokes creating the fur affect.
My kitty (ironically his name is Bugs!!) checks out the new arrival.


thank you so much, JofulClover!  He arrived perfectly intact, you did a wonderful packing job. I loved my cat's reaction to seeing him.
I look forward to your comments about just how you developed this idea and how the process went. it rocks!!

LBBB asked me to post these pics she sent to me since her computer is still having issues.
I hope I put them in the right place, Barbara!

Such wonderful patches on this bag she created.
