Oh how I love creating collages!!


This is a relatively new hobby of mine. While writing on here I found a passion for photography and used my images to accompany my hubs. This then branched out into creating collages ;also recently creating greetings cards for all occasions.

I create them under 'Erin's Box Of Secrets.' Many of you know that Erin is my beautiful daughter who at the young age of 17 yrs. four years ago tragically passed away.

However my baby is with me in my heart and by my side each and every day.

However I haven't branched out into setting up a business country/worldwide as of yet. I am being kept so busy creating many for friends and family ;but I know the time will come when I shall be ready to branch out further.

I hope you all enjoy today's hub.

Some examples of the cards lovingly created for Erin's Box Of Secrets.

Some of the collages I have used to create 'bookmarks' for all my grandchildren with images of their own choice and laminating the final product..

Various 'My room ' notices for their bedrooms.

Table mats and coasters and many more.

The Sunshine's Warmth.

From the sunshine's warmth;

A warmth to fill

each cold heart

each ray drawing

the lonely

each eager soul

to step forward

to try

that amazing

taste of the

sunshine's inspiring warmth........................

That Red Rose.

Source

That Red Rose

a symbol

of true love.

So rich and deep

carries each word to heights

of immense beauty;

words from a heart in love

float and bless

each heart

unsure;

yet

a heart

so deserving .....................

Inspiration.

Source

Inspiration

from

paper and pen.

Poems flow freely,

a delicious journey,

rising up to the heavens

in sweet assurance.

leading us to a place so bright

and awesome......................

Source
Source

Share your sweet love song

a heartfelt warmth glows from deep within,

caressing the tune

like soft velvet petals

or the silken touch of a pink blossom.

Each inspiration

to be shared

but never to be abused;

A tune flowing

on the wings of angels;

a voice as pure

as melodious

and

sweetly resembling

a Lark's morning song........................

Do not let

the light grow dim;

do not allow

your dream to fade;

do not allow that heart to close;

do not allow others to mock;

your inspiration will take you through;

trust in the faith ;

I do so believe

in my inspirations;

each one

eternally

shines

down

on the

true path

through of life..........................................

Keep days bright

with blossoms so free;

wondrous moments for you and me.

Treasured family moments to cherish and to share.

Grandchildren are gems

of true beauty

to love

and

to cherish.

So close to my heart

moments of awesome

almost unreachable joy.

moments so rare

to care

to love

and also to share.


The utmost, most treasured gifts are the chance to feel and sense unconditional love.




Each little one

By my side;

You are my life

I share with pride.

x

How I love

with all my heart;

Each sweet heartbeat

right from the start.

x

Today I can share

moments of wonder;

A love so rare

oh so tender.






Beautiful World.

      How beautiful this is, I use to make these all the time when I was younger and have not done so for a while. My sister made a beautiful one after my dad died.

      I have to try this again and be nice to wrap text into it like a poem.

      Your words are beautiful

      thank you

      I love your creativity with the collages, Eddy. Door markers and book marks are a clever idea, too. I'm sure your grandkids are proud to have their own personalized memorabilia designed by their Mamgu.
