Thoughts

A friend of mine is going through a tough time. We're not really that close, but I knew she was struggling. I didn't really know what to say, but I wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

While I was working on samples for my Make It University workshop, I made this pair of "painted paint chips" for her.
I tried to infuse them with hopefulness and good thoughts.

We both really like the symbolism of chairs. Sometimes you have sit and wait. Sometimes you need to be still. But, even when you are still, you need not be idle.

Yes, I'm going through a "sit and wait" period myself, and so are a few friends of mine... I love the symbolism of a chair and I will think of it when I get impatient. See how many people your good thoughts have touched!

Deborah, your collages are lovely -- and a very sweet gift for your friend. I love that chair stencil!

I wish they were mine--you know I do love a nice chair. How did you make such a nice stencil. I think you need to show us the "process".

Lovely. I especially like the green/pale blue/chocolate palette. Gotta remember that one. ;-)
