One of my favorite swaps so far...

Collage by Lani for 14 Secrets Swap about honoring our grandmothers

I loved working on my page for "Honoring our Grandmothers."  It was one of those magical things where all the elements fell into place so easily.  And then I hadn't figured out what I wanted to write about it until I uploaded it on our yahoo group.  The I realized I wanted to write about what I learned from all my Grandmothers (and there have been many): be kind, be generous, be loving, be patient, and finally be yourself!  That was it.  Very simple and very satisfying! 

That's all I wrote, but I'm sure if I gave this a bit longer to think about I'd have a much longer list of what I learned from my Grandmothers.  Actually, I can see one that I forgot, right now.  Edith Kramer, one of the grandmothers of art therapy, always taught us to make art, all the time.  How could I forget that one? 

What have you learned from your grandmothers?

Here's a question for you...

I stumbled on this website with many, many artist's studios and it got me thinking:
"If you could create a dream studio what would you want in it?"
