It’s been a wonderful week so far regarding mail here at Happy Acres. A couple of the goodies include this book.
What is neat about this book is that on page 180 in the Managing Transitions chapter is my article “Using dialogue to move on with my life.” I wrote (and rewrote) this article many times since my divorce in 1994. For those not familiar with dialogue, it is a journal writing technique where you write both sides of the imaginary conversation. The goal of this journal tool is to help find closure with a situation, usually someone who is not available or not willing to communicate. It is one of my favorite techniques for finding closure and helped me to close the chapter on that part of my life. I’ve not read the book yet, but look forward to sitting down and seeing what all the other writers have to say.
I had ordered just yesterday these cute bags for Christmas presents from Kathy Sands, fiber artist and teacher and owner of My Wildflower Designs, who I met online through my blog.
Also, way too cute.
They are so much cuter than the pictures on her etsy site. Anyway, one will be a present; the other I’ll keep. I’ll carry mine in my purse for my homemade lip balm and lotion. Now to decide which is mine!
Check out Kathy’s blog and her Etsy store. If you are looking for a handmade present, give her store a look. Kathy lives about an hour from here, so I’m buying local and handmade. Yeah!
I received this bag in the mail from the Green Bag Lady. My bag is #12561.
Learn more about this project and the current count of bags running around the world at Green Bag Lady.
Tomorrow, I’ll show and tell about some neat stuff I found in my craftroom/cave as I continue to organize this mess! See you then.
Hey Lynda, thanks for plugging my stuff and my sites…now, you’re not saying anything is wrong with my photography, are you?! lol I think these pictures look exactly like my bags! Maybe you are a better photographer than I…! Thanks again.
Kathy, You are so welcome! I just wished I wasn’t tied up this weekend so I could see you and the other artists at the studio tour! Also, one of your pieces on your website gave me an idea of what to do with those ugly blocks in today’s post- paint over them!
Absolutely paint over them! And you could also add gesso and paint too!
I saw how you painted over that quilt.
