inspiration monday


sometimes i'm down-right terrified of a blank page.....
there's just so much blank.





and then i remember that when you follow your heart, 
blank pages invite possibility.....





and inspiration.....





and blank-page-miracles!


"Believe in miracles.  In a world where research is the basis for drawing conclusions and
reason is rewarded, allow yourself to believe the unbelievable in life.  The word itself,
miracle, often seems magical or childish.  But don't let the unexplainable just slip by without 
at least a nod of recognition.  Believing in miracles allows these experiences to be much
more valuable.  Help them along by allowing your imagination to get involved."
Carolyn Rubenstein

You are so creative. I bought the wall journal and I'm going to Hawaii. My goal is to do a journal page when I'm on the beach. Thanks for the creative inspiration.
