Postcards from Paradise - Whoops I told a Lie ;~)

I recently had an on-line 
conversation and said
 "I don't remember
smiling at anything I have created"!

This week I'm definitely smiling, 
I received two things back
through the post that I created.
My Blog Story in Print
This is an achievement, as you can see
 I posted original images and text too ~
You can get your blog professionally printed, 
but I wanted to have a go,
 I have some background experience in publishing, 
it's not perfect, I'm still learning,
there's room for improvement!
This will be a prototype! Oh that's a big word!
Yes, I'm definitely smiling.

I think sometimes when we admit to smiling
at our own creations it feels a
bit uncomfortable, drawing to attention,
self approval/self doubt and ego all come into play?

Also artists are renowned for
never being completely happy and smiling
at their work, what do you think?

Oh, good heavens. My book would be volumes as I have been publishing the blog eight years last November. It never occurred to me to have it published and you certainly have given me some ideas. I just love how your printed blog came out. And yes, most artists and writers I know (including me) are usually modest and unsure about their work. Thanks for this great idea!
A paradisaical printing!
I think that it is completely beautiful. A work of art in progress, now able to be held in the hand and cherished while it continues to unfold. You have every right to be proud. Lovely!

I am smiling ear to ear at your beautiful creation and the lovely soul who brought it into being. What a wonderful book! I enjoyed leafing through the pages and wish I could hold it in my hands.

Now I'm laughing! This is so beautful(!) that I burst into tears, overwhelmed by the possibility that you brought to light. That unexpected outburst made me laugh...I'm almost afraid to go back and look at this again, but of course, I absolutely have to! :)

How wonderful! I have thought of doing this, to document my creative journey in a physical form. I love how this looks and I'm so excited you have this to hold in your hands. You've inspired me. Someday...

Congratulations Foxy Sue on publishing a book with all of your own works.... photos, thoughts, collage! Adore your cover!!

I think it's great to smile about a creative work of art!! When a person can smile and be enchanted by their own creation, it is a slice of heaven. To win the battle after so many mistakes. To stay with it and create beauty is the very best feeling. To stare at something you have created with your imagination and say WOW! I did that!? It is a gift and mystery how it all comes together. Don't you think?

Bravo again!!

Hello

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
