Wounded Child Transformation

Years ago I did a Wounded Child SoulCollage card but have not been able to find it.  Recently, events inspired me to do another when I found one of the pictures I had used on the first SoulCollage card and saw a series of related documentaries.

I Am the One Who came into this life wounded from past lives; was conceived, gestated and lived early years in an atmosphere of a wounded World War II world; was subjected to the woundings from wounded people around me.  I Am the One Who grew up wounded even though there were many moments the Divine Child manifested: both potentials that  could move positive or negative.  I want you to recognize your processing which helped you to transform beyond that Wounded Child even while appreciating and honoring her.   Remember: we are all struggling souls.  I give you the capacity  to forgive where necessary, both others and yourself.

I have used this card in my Project Life album to commemorate my further healing of my Inner Child.

Washi Tape wheel holder – part 2

Most of my washi tape went right onto the wooden wheel holder, however some of my washi were on centers that were too small in diameter to slide onto the holder dowels.  Took a bit of thinking, but then I devised a way to get them all on. First, take a toilet paper  or kitchen-paper-towel tube and cut lengthwise.

Second, add a strip of 3/4 inch scotch tape along one edge.   Cut along the scotch tape strip leaving a bit extra for holding.  Roll strip into a circle with a diameter measuring about 1 inch and cut off excess. Tape into a one inch circle.

Third, start unrolling the washi stored on a smaller diameter center tube onto your larger just-made toilet-paper or kitchen-paper-towel tube holder.  Place it over the scotch tape so it can still be used when you get to the end of the tape.  Rotate both slowly and carefully rewind from one to the other (like the scrolling of cassette tapes or movie reels).

When  completed, cut off the excess on the edge of the roll.  It is now large enough and ready to slip onto the dowels of the washi holder to add to your visible and easily used collection available for Project Life or SoulCollage cards. greeting cards, art journaling or other craft projects.  Rolls of ribbon can also be transferred in this manner.
