"Sweet Dreamer"

"Trust the inspirations of your heart
for there awaits the birth of a dream"
I love to create altered books and play with dreamy colors and story themes. I had imagined this piece for some time before I finally let inspiration move me to complete it. The book reflects on those dreams in our hearts that find life through our willingness to bring them out of the realm of our imagination and into the light of day. I suppose that is where risk makes its entrance. Walking hand in hand with our deepest dreams will usually require us to move out of our comfort zone. Its so much easier to imagine the dream or watch others live the dream and stay safe in the realm of suspended hope. But I believe hope is to sustain us while it is moving us toward something. We have to take the steps though. Those steps may feel scary but we will never know what possibilites and discoveries await us until we begin our unique journey. If you'd like to see more pictures of the book you can find it today on Ebay. Creative blessings!!!

BTW, I have started a new Yahoo group for Christian artists. The focus is on a weekly challenge to create a piece inspired by a bible verse or Christian theme. You would be a wonderful asset to our group! Just go to my blog and click on the Yahoo! group button to check it out. I think you'll find a couple of old friends there too!

Moving out of our comfort zone is sometimes very hard, but it is well worth it to achieve our dreams. Thanks for the inspiration. Nita
