My First SoulCollage Card

I can't thank Doris enough for bringing SoulCollage into my life.

My first card was a revelation about myself. As a child of an alcoholic, the stack of fabric symbolizes the need to make sure things went as planned so my mother would not be upset. The box without the bottom is my need to think outside the box to keep things running smoothly.

I know my kids hated my need to fix things before they were broken, but now as adults I think they understand. I finally understand as well and work hard at letting others fix their own problems. I don't need to do it for the whole community.

As today is my last day as Administrator at LOUU, I realize this is part of my journey to not be the "repairer" of unbroken things. If you see me trying to fix something not yet broken, remind me of the little girl living outside the box in a world of color!
