For the past month I have been collaborating with my soul sister – Kathryn Antyr – Collage Diva on a new Soul Journal Prompt that went live today. This months prompt is Mandalas.
I created a tutorial on creating your own affirmation mandalas.
Kathryn’s tutorial focused on creating collage mandalas. There are a range of different mediums that are employed to create the mandalas, collage, digital manipulation, zentangles and hand-drawn mandalas.
There is also a Mandala Affirmation Card Swap for Soul Journal Members and a Blog Contest. Stop by the Soul Journal Blog and have a look.
The winners are:
Zentangled Heart – Carol at Swallowcliffs
Zentangled Bird – Thauna
Bird & Heart Garland – Andrea
They were selected using the random number generator at www.Random.org
I just want to say thank you to everyone who visited my blog as part of the Birds of a Feather Soul Journal Blog Party. I also want to thank Kathryn – Collage Diva for hosting the blog party – it was my first blog party – it was exhausting visiting all those blogs (I think I got to them all!) and I still have to get back to everyone who left comments here at my blog. I hope everyone had a great Valentines Day!
I was inspired by Misty Mawn’s Circle Garland and Susanna Gordon’s Hearts that I decided to make my own garland. Last night I punched a variety of little hearts, using scrapbooking papers and painted papers. (I even stabbed my thumb with the punch!) this morning I cut two little birds and then stictched them onto pink ribbon to finish the garland. The garland is now hanging in the window of our lounge room.
The good news for you is that I am making another one as a giveaway. Leave a comment here 0n this post before Monday and you will go in the draw for a bird and heart garland.
Here are the other bits and pieces I have been working on today.
A Zentangled Heart for Ken for Valentines Day. I was making it for a giveaway, until he asked what it was for, so I wrapped it in brown paper and ribbon for him. I’ll get a frame for it next week.
This zentangled Bird and Heart are up for grabs in my giveaway so don’t forget to leave your email address. Check out the Soul Journal Blog for more Birds of a Feather Blog Party ideas and links to other participants.
have a Happy Valentines Day!

In my last post I mentioned the book “The Vision Board – The Secret to an Extraordinary Life” by Joyce Schwarz, that has inspired Kathryn to develop some soul journal prompts for the Soul Journal Blog. Well Kathryn is having a blog giveaway and she will be giving away a copy of the book – All you need to do is leave her a message with your affirmation for the year – mine is – I will follow the path that resonates with my soul.
Kathryn has been reading the book “The Vision Board – The Secret to an Extraordinary Life” by Joyce Schwarz. She is using the idea of a vision board to create prompts for us to use in our our soul journals.

It’s taken me a while to work up to doing this crusade. I really wanted to do it – because I know how important it is – but I had to wait until I was ready to actually write about it.
What am I on about? Back in September Michelle Ward challenged GPP Street Teamers to document their final wishes for their loved ones. Michelle had recently lost her sister and was able to fulfill her sister’s final wishes.
I know how difficult it is to make arrangements after the death of a loved one, while coping with the grief of losing them. So I finally took the challenge and wrote about my final wishes. I wrote them in my Soul Journal – here is a glimpse – as they are personal I won’t be detailing them. Take a look at The GPP Street Team Blog if you want to know more.
