Lent Day 40!



This is it! The last one! I'm done!!!! I conclude with a last shape of water collage. The molecule thing is water with salt, which naturally made me think both of oceans and tears, so I made an eye out of an ocean and cut some teardrops from the scraps of one of the other water pictures I've used in this series.

I can say that I learned a lot doing this whole Lent thing. It has been worth the effort to shift myself out of my normal patterns. While I have not been thrilled with the actual LOOK of some of my projects, there are some that I like a lot. Process. It was about process. And I learned that sometimes process is boring and difficult and dry. I learned that doing something is better than doing nothing and that some of the most interesting results come from the most unlikely sources. I'm going to do it again next Lent, so anyone who thought about doing it this time around and didn't can start planning ahead for next year.

Blessed Easter to everyone! May the resurrection live in you!

Congratulations on completing the project! I've enjoyed watching its progress, and I really like some of the pieces too :).

I've loved it! And as someone who said "oh goody, I'll play too," and did a grand total of 1 1/2 pieces, all I can say is . . . next year I'll try to do at least 3. :-|

More on this in my LJ soon. I'm doing a lot of reflecting on being 40 and what I want to change in my life.

Easter blessings to you too!

Among my many blessings, I have time to do things like this. I don't think I'd have managed when Syd was two! I look forward to your reflections, because you are a Wise Woman and I could use some tips! Hugs!
