Getting Sparked

I recently joined The Gritty Bird Academy and decided to give Becky's Creative Spark Fridays a try.  Here are the sparks for the week of 9/3-9/10:


Artistic Theme

Kaleidoscope of Color



Theme Words, Poem or Phrase

the kaleidoscope turns
in patterns and colors
a swirl of blend
continually tossed
by each turn of the hand

within the tube are
prisms of light
easily colored
by the direction
it's pointed

and what was a star
becomes a flower
a shape disappears and
becomes a pattern
then shifts again
into the blend

beautiful glimpses
that tumble around
each small piece
a part of the whole

pieces of stardust
pockets of glitter
you know with each turn
nothing much matters

just that you turned
and looked at the colors
admired its moment
and swirled in the blend
- Debby Rosenberg

Theme Color Palette

You'll notice that the punch of pink in the image is missing from the color palette. I am not sure why it did not come through the generator but I am plan to add into my sparks, so please feel free to as well if you like!

And here's my Sparked Creation:

Golden Memories

I have vivid memories of one Christmas in the early eighties when my dad and uncles gave my grandparents a VCR.  It was the size of today's microwave and weighed 100 pounds!  It was the most amazing thing to me.  Along with the gift of the VCR, came the movie "On Golden Pond."  I don't remember my grandparents ever having any other movies except the tapes my grandma "made" of PBS programming and "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."  I watched "On Golden Pond" so many times, I think I must have had it memorized.  The other night when I finally plopped exhausted onto the sofa, I was excited to see my husband had run across the movie while channel surfing.  What was a girl to do but watch it one more time.  I must confess after watching, I had to do some web-surfing of Squam Lake to check out the real estate market.  If you are in the market for a little cottage with a $1-5 million dollar price tag, this is the lake for you!
