Bits and Pieces



I've added a few beads, bugles and charms to the three pins and finished the september bjp, except for the framing.
I think this description of one of the things the dragonfly symbolizes is the one I most love and thought of while finishing the piece....

Focus on living ‘IN’ the moment

The dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life and usually not more than a few months. This adult dragonfly does it all in these few months and leaves nothing to be desired. This style of life symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living IN the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t and make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis.

This ability lets you live your life without regrets like the great dragonfly.



It's raining today but supposed to be sunny next week, so I'm waiting until then to take some photos of the clean and warmer sun porch.
I'll also be starting my autumn piece, Herbst, and the october bjp. Photos next week on those as well.

I love how you created the dragonfly and I am going to keep your paragraph on the description of what the dragonfly symbolizes in my heart. These pieces are all lovely.

I love your dragonfly as well! Great job and still so enthusiastic. I love it too, but I'm behind this year, so won't be racing you to the finish line. At least not in December. LOL!

Dragonflies have always seemed magical to me. Perhaps the name or the lovely wings...I'm not sure. But yours is beautiful and the reflections are too. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Dragonflies are special to many of us, I see! I may have to do some for the fall piece.

Your pieces are all wonderful. They inspire me. Love the nature elements, faces, etc. It all works so well together.

Good morning, dearest Bobbi! I have missed you so much and I am happy to be visiting and getting caught up with you today.

I don't want to overwhelm your email with zillions of comments, but I couldn't pass this post without saying how much it touched my heart! Your dragonfly bjp is SO beautiful!!! The pearl dragonflies you make are the best...so simple, so pretty! I enjoyed reading the article you shared on the symbolism of the dragonfly and the same paragraph spoke volumes to me. I feel that living IN the moment with NO regrets is so important to us all. Thank you for the lovely reminder and sharing.

I've always loved dragonflies, but I love them all the more knowing about their symbolism. XOX ~Lisa
