I enjoyed teaching my "Free as a Feather" art workshop the other night! Thanks to all the wonderful women who joined me! Love your special feather messages--each so beautiful, personal and unique! Here are a few photos from our evening and a little background on my fascination with feathers. May your spirits be free and your dreams take flight! xxoo ~Jackie
When I was a child, I was told that feathers were dirty and carried disease and to NEVER pick them up! As a child, I believed this and did what I was told. However, as an adult, I no longer simply do as I'm told. I am drawn to feathers--their beauty, their connection to freedom and flight. So, I began picking them up! I became fascinated with feathers--wondering which birds they came from, what messages they were carrying, what meaning and symbolism I could apply to my life and circumstances. And thus, my collection began. Two of my favorite feathers are my red-tailed hawk feather and my brilliant blue jay feather found just days before my workshop! Hope you enjoy!
