A Start to my September Journal Page

The start of September. Meet the Goddess of the Harvest. She has a sweetly content look on her face because the seeds planted in the springtime are yielding a rich, abundant harvest.

I marbled some gold and black polymer clay in my pasta machine for her body. Her bone face cabochon was purchased years ago at the Whole Bead show in Providence and lovingly added to my stash to await the day it would be part of a creation. The variegated bead hank, purchased on my recent trip to Michigan, was originally intended for a bead crochet project but when I placed it next to the page, I thought it would make simply awesome flowing hair. Muted but rich shades of turquoise, green, brown and cream beads – the photo doesn’t do it justice. I have a whole evening free for beading!

    ti auguro che la tua sera per ricamare sia profiqua e soddisfacente.
    mi piace molto il letto di foglie sulle quali il tuo spirito attende la maturazione dei suoi frutti… molto bello il tuo fascio di perline. credo che al di là della bellezza delle perle sia bella l’idea che si siano “scelte da se’ ” per arricchire il tuo lavoro, visto che le avevi comprate per altro.
    spero di essere stata comprensibile, buon lavoro, matilda

    Thanks ladies for all of your encouraging words! I have begun to bead my piece and my thoughts are on “Abundance”, the richness of my life and all that I have to be grateful for. -Karen

    Beautiful and very peaceful grounding colors. I think that giving thanks is a great thing to do to get myself grounded. Thank you for the reminder of Abundance, for we all have a lot to be grateful for.

    Thanks, my pleasure. I wholeheartedly agree that giving thanks for what we have is very grounding and helps us concentrate and appreciate each moment as it happens. Sometimes I think that our society teaches and supports us to think about what we don’t have or what someone else has so we can lose sight of that. -Karen
