What I started after stART!

Sometimes the magic happens after the show! In our post eps-20 conversation, the idea of a diorama was re-sparked in me! So, of course, I started right away! I knew I wanted to use one of these beautiful porcelain tiles we have leftover from our kitchen. I worried it would scratch the table, so I cut a placemat down to size.

So there it was. I had my foundation.

When I was out and about this mug caught my eye. I didn't know why but knowing that I was building this diorama I thought, why not pick it up? Only in the moment that I put it on the foundation did I think, "We had five kids in our family." It's amazing how significance is revealed in the process. I remembered that I can trust that.

It wasn't long before the 5 had some company.

I love this process. I think the meanings will be discovered and will shift and grow as the diorama takes shape. Thank you for the inspiration!

  1. Oh that's fascinating and beautiful Jamie! Five is an important number in our family it is true and it is a sacred number in general. I am glad you listened to your instincts. Love the owls which are all about air and wisdom and the grounding of the stone. I had no idea what you were going to create exactly so I love seeing this update. Yay!
