Whatever the Season: GROW page for Get Creative

The other day we went for a walk out back in our woods. The snow had melted enough and the walking was not hard through the snow.

All through the woods laid out flat on the snow like little golden gems were these pretty birch leaves. Thought with a bit of gloss spray and some glitter, they would be a fun addition to a page.

Used a super cool sketch from Get Creative along with my new flowers from Irini & her etsy store who is also the blog owner over there in Greece! Flipped it a bit and got crazy with various mediums. I just needed to get my fingers dirty!

Can you see that lovely Irini Flower in the lower left hand corner near the lovely silver deer from Jeanie? Irini also sent me a card with those cardboard banners that I used at the bottom and the base of her card is behind my photo. 

And can you see there  a rock sticking out of the snow in the photo? It was covered with lush green happy moss. 

It's deep winter here. Chilly and cold, yet this moss continues to thrive and grow. Perhaps with the leaves off the trees and all the snow, it gets more moisture and sunshine than in the summer. 

I felt there was meaning there in the moss growing in the snow and wanted to make a page. I think that we need to keep growing regardless of the season or where we are at in life.

I am a firm believer in setting goals and continual growth!

On that same lines. I got an awesome link with some great graphics that discuss goal setting. I am posting that tomorrow with a few more thoughts on growth. It's worth sharing I feel. 

Happy Monday!
