Visit http://www.soulcollage.com/ for more information on the SoulCollage® process. The Card Gallery features many artists and examples from each SoulCollage suit: Committee, Community, Companion, and Council.
It is 10:45 (way past my bedtime) and I'm tired but satisfied. My first experience of sharing SoulCollage® was very fun and rewarding. Two women brought photos for making special cards for family members. Two women came to try out the process with little else in mind. And everyone's card turned out just great. It is such a reminder that we are all artists when deeply engaged.

When I went to the SoulCollage® facilitator's workshop in September 04, I wondered how I would make cards without the use of computers or copiers to resize. Of course it worked great. I made the two of the most dynamic cards in my deck. (See Moms to the Rescue.) Still, what a reminder that this process is magnificent--high tech totally optional. It would probably work just fine to tear around the images and use flour paste.
Yet, I love working on the computer with images. My communittee card of Geri Esposito is a good reminder not to get caught up in the "shoulds". Not to let my delight in doing SoulCollage in my way be dampened by my "rule follower".

Well, I thought, ask my cards. I’ve only done a couple of readings before—both very provocative—but I’d never tried it at home on my own.
I said a little blessing, worrying that perhaps leaving out the candle was inviting bad karma, and drew two cards. Two perfect cards. Devotion and Healthy Me (my very first card).
Okay, I just uploaded photos of these two cards and got 2 copies of Devotion. I guess that means that I've got a few more things to learn about this blogging business and that I must be doubly devoted. There are no accidents.
