Emblem Club Prayer September 2011

Heavenly Father

Guide our hands that we will be gentle in our help of others.
Guide our Hearts that our intentions be honarable.
Guide our eyes that we will see the need that exists.
Guide our feet that we will go where there is need.
Guide our lips that we will speak only kindness and truth.

And Lord please guide our club that it will continue
 to do good works and be a vessel of love and friendship.          Amen

Memories of Mary Jane Reich

Love you    Lea

Candace Pollock, Quote

‎"When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life."

"I see art as a form of meditation."   Lea

Carole King says

You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face, and show the world all the love in your heart.

Today, I will show all the world my love!!

Sunny day today! Love it!

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with the problem longer.

For every challenge or problem, I know there is a solution.
I also know I can find it.

Good Morning Wensday

September 19th at Seaview Assisted living activity center was a real work in progress for Ginny and I.
We realize we will need more volunteers to work with us as the residents are very quick to learn and such fun to be with we wore ourselves out.
We had eight ladies two of which were artistic in their earlier endevors, 3 were crafty, and the others are just very good with design.

Art Takes A Village was invited back on October 24, 2011.  Ginny suggested we make Autumn wreaths,
Ginny is so inventive and full of teaching ability, no wonder I choose her to be my friend!!

Loves from Lea

Full Heart

Good Morning

I spent a good deal of time this past week or so realizing some of the Brookings, Oregon women residents are without funds for extra products and services.  Some of these women are retired or even young mothers with children.

We at Art Takes A Village would like to use my creative mind to help resolve this situation.
Maybe an arts and crafts workshop where locals can either receive funds for teaching,marketing,stocking and hands on crafts.
I shall research further the potential of this project.
Please add your thoughts to this plight.

Just feeling thankfull for the help and support I receive from my family and friends!
My newest friend Bonnie Wilson will be visiting the craft studio tomorrow.

It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal: each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.        Goethe

Every positive step I take feeds my confidence and determination. My motto: I can and I do.

Have a good sunday everyone.

Japanese Proverb

Vision without action is a daydream.  Action without vision is a nightmare.

I have a clearly defined path for my life.

Love it.      Lea
