So the other day I saw a quote that said "Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had".  Funny how that rings true for me because along with having dreams the ones that are coming true I never even could fathom.  Those surprise ones are the best.  I never imaged that A) I would every put myself in front of a video or B) I would challenge others to join me artistically.  I am petrified of those crickets chirping!  But there are no crickets to report in! 

I issued the Life List Challenge on Monday

and already I am getting emails, pages, and messages on Facebook! like this one……

"Just want to say thanks for amazing video on Monday – I finally worked up the nerve to write with nib pen & ink and it was AMAZING!!  I coulnd't STOP!!  Now I don't know why I was so afraid." ~Carisa Zglobicki

And so thrilled to get Lori Hamilton's email this morning with her journal already started!

I cannot tell you how inspiring that is for me to have someone share with me and Lori was so cute in that it was the first time she has submitted photographs of her work and was nervous.  I SO know that feeling!  I have that nervous feeling myself on a daily basis and am happy that she gave me permission to share here.  Make sure to share those pages now Lori!

and for those who wish to share please email your journals/pages direct to me to share here: [email protected].  Thanks for that Spark!……….sure feels good!
