When Creative Minds Meet…Sparks fly!

I was invited to meet with a new friend yesterday and had a wonderful time at her soulful studio and home on the water. It was about an hours drive north from where I live, and in the midst of many days of rain, it turned out to be such a beautiful day for a peaceful and meandering drive. Stephanie (my GPS :)) and I had no trouble finding our way.

She does beautiful watercolours and quilts, and she dyes her own yarns and knits socks (anyone who can knit socks is a goddess in my eyes). She collages and writes and I can tell she is an amazing business coach (another hat she wears). I have a feeling it is the beginning of an ongoing and great friendship….I can just feel it in my creative bones.

I made this journal piece using collage elements, acrylic paint, and japanese handmade papers in honour of our get together, and just sent her a copy via email. It is entitled
