It’s been some time since I’ve made an Art Card, mostly because the lack of motivation to do so has overwhelmed me. That was until I came up with a better idea of prompting myself when I feel like creating one. For a little over a month, maybe longer, we’ve been saving our fortune cookie messages on a window sill in the kitchen.
Initially, I wanted to save them to use as a background on an Art Card, but that quickly changed. After gathering a handful, I picked one out, and thought, “This is a good message”, then thought, “Now, what can I do with it?”. Which is why I decided to make an attempt at interpreting the ‘fortune’.
Upon reading the message for the first time, I immediately thought, cha-ching!, and dollar signs came to mind. Of course, that’s how I would like to be rewarded, with lots of monies!!! But then, I said to myself, come up with something that isn’t shallow, and dig a little deeper. So I did.
This is how I interpreted the random fortune I drew from our growing pile of mini messages.
It sort of pairs with the little message I wrote to go along with the last photo I posted in “Window to the World”. Holding on to a belief that if you work hard enough, and keep trying, you will get to where you want to be. My aspirations are running wild, and deep, but picking a place to start is the tricky part. Although there are a few things going on right now that I’m excited about, although I’m not yet ready to spill the beans – I don’t want to jinx it!
I sincerely hope that you all have a fantastic weekend. And more California vacation adventure posts are in the works, but for now, I am slightly burned out on them so I decided to share something new.
