A handfull of love and fear at bay – yay!

Let us fear but do it anyway
Let us do this today
Let us create something every day
And keep that fear at bay

Yay!

Then a bunch of new pens bought for my Christmas check from work.

I got lots of yummy pens to use in my Art Journal, writing letters, diary pages and when I write daily poetry.

It’s Love Week every week over here. Love yourself (try to!!!). Love your pens. Love new books! Love your camera. Make love to (in?) your art/heart… ;-)

The poem is by Kim Mailhot of Queen of Arts blog, written as a comment to my post My blank books still haunt me… She calls it cheesy, but it’s fun and it’s encouraging – so it fits my blog, right? I wrote it down in my diary together with this fearsome tiger that I also adore. Isn’t he handsome. Grrr…

  1. Inspiring…this is a great post. I love “hand it over” + the colorful pen photography mixed in. Add in a poem…very well rounded! :) Have a great weekend!

    I love the hand picture and all those juicy pens. I love pens!! I have an obsession with fine point pens. We must create through our fear. Fear is just love being all cranky.

    I too am a pen obsessive. Can never have too many. I love going up to London and looking around the stationery shops for writing paper and pens etc. etc….. lovely. The hand shots are great too. I have some photos of my elderly mum’s hands. They are wrinkled but still beautiful.

    Yay! I LOVE your photography, and the black and white of your hand is beautiful! It reminds me of palmistry (fortune telling by reading hands) for some reason.

    Eeek…I am still having trouble getting started in my art journals and it’s already February! I need to not fear!!

    How did I miss this ? I always read your posts ! I think you must have posted it when I was away getting some love therapy back at home with my family !

    So glad I inspired you! That page in your journal is so great as is the entire post. (I love new pens too – they are full of juicy and colorful possibility, aren’t they ?) Makes me feel good. I still think the poem is kind of cheesy…but maybe cheesy in a good way !;-)

    I hope you have a fearless and playful day ! Keep putting those gorgeous pens to such awesome work ! I am going to try and channel that tiger today too …
    Hugs !
    Kim
