And Then She Soared....



  ...And then she SOARED! 

This is exactly how I am feeling today... Smile! This past year I have been trying to live my life authentically and truthfully, saying how I feel but from a place of love. But all my life I have struggled with a hairpin trigger in the anger department as well as an inability to hear how LOUD I am (smile).  But today I feel like all that hard work, like trying to think before I speak and speaking from a place of LOVE, feels like it is finally paying off as I handled multiple incidents these past few days with grace and tolerance and LOVE... I have created this 5x7 canvas as a tribute and reminder to myself that the hard work does pay off and when you accomplish that goal it feels like THIS!
A Happy ME Saying Thank YOU for Visiting!!!
I used another of my very favorite Phyllis Harris stamps from Unity Stamps, "Happiness Is..." to create this wee canvas, with an acrylic paint background and the image stampedon 140lbs watercolor paper, painted, cut out and mounted on my canvas background. And of course I am linking this up to Unity Stamp's Friday Friends with Flair.
