Continue to Bloom - Part 1


Hi everyone! Let's go on A Sentimental Journey 

I was asked to make a banner or poster set for Schelia's retirement party.  Schelia is our Director and has only been with us for a short while considering her 37-year span of service to the Agency.




So where were we little peeps to begin with such a big task at hand? 

 We need to go slow to take it all in.



Have you ever had an idea take on a life all its own? 




 And it comes bubbling out & overflows




 You wonder where it came from

because you didn't know it was in you.






A Journey of Creativity you've imagined





for Oh! so long!





Everything you've sewn & drawn, stitched & colored; every technique you've practiced & studied.




All you talents and gifts came out because you finally took ACTION.




 Simply because you were given a heartfelt purpose.



 And so here it is 

A Journey of Inspiration, Dedication

and Sweet Sentiments -  


All rolled into a 3-Part Mixed-Media Collage Series.




A Little Bird Told Us You Were Leaving 





 Continue  to  B l o o m !





 Thank you for holding us together. 


We will miss you Schelia


 As for now, Just Bloom!

Blessings, Terri
