before ringing in the new year last night I put the finishing touches on a couple more December Journal pages …
inspiration came from several places … the gorgeous image Marilyn Rock shared on her blog … then a pomegranate (one of nature’s more beautiful and mysterious fruits … delicious and healthy too) which was cut from a leaflet I picked up at the supermarket on how to open pomegranates … had to have it because of the picture …
I have finally gotten better at opening the fruit and removing the seeds … practice practice practice 🙂
the blue Turkish tile image that I cut and used in pieces is from Wikipedia … such gorgeous colors … the pomegranate inspired me to add a touch of gold to the spread, something I would not have done on my own … can’t beat Mother Nature!!!
… here it is Twenty Ten … a bit easier to say than two thousand and nine … I am one that likes to ease into change … for at least a few days I’m sure I’ll hear myself saying .. 2010 … already!!!
have you chosen a word to guide and inspire you into the new year? I forget my word from last year … oh my! but the word BALANCE keeps coming to mind … could be the same word from 2009 ?
asked Mr Magpie what his word for 2010 would be (didn’t say inspiring and such) … he said “undecade” … he is annoyed at the talk of this being the beginning of a new decade because according to him it’s not … please … don’t get him started … 🙂
Happy Healthy New Year One and All!!!
