Do Not Leave Unattended


{Click on images for larger view}

I'm finally posting my contribution to the Do Not Leave Unattended Notebook Project started by the wonderful Jude from Randomly Run4istRun. The project was created to impart wisdom, laughter, and touch hearts through words, photos, and drawings. I tend to ask many questions - both out loud and in my head - so I decided to start with all the questions I could think of that started with "HOW?" Then I thought about the 3 statements I go back to when I'm having a design dilemma or question - these are keep it simple, keep it real, and keep creating. I constructed a page for each statement by cutting through the page, scribbling with my new markers, and stitching on fabric. These are words that ground me and always bring me back to the core of my thoughts and ideas.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to participate in this fun project, and if you would like to see more or get involved check out the Do Not Leave Unattended website.

thank you for your kind wishes...though I must say that being internet-less for the last few days was like totally crazy! I have to have limited blogging..trying to organise the pictures and doing a new post soon. Cant say its fun doing it on the bed..but better than no connection at all. You know, I was thinking about a journal all these times, esp when I was immobile, now this is really inspiring as I'll start one real soon. much love and hugs :D
