In addition, as I have begun working more on Process I want to share what it's like to explore that with all of you. I've started a discussion about it and would LOVE to hear from all of you. http://thursdaysweettreat.ning.com/forum/topics/process-1
Now, let us dance among the stars!!
Ruthie, creator of Rose Works Jewelry created this gorgeous "Stars Memory Wire Bracelet".
"This theme came at the perfect time for me!" said Ruthie. "I needed to make more bracelets to put in my consignment shop and this gave me a great idea for one to make. This piece isn't available on-line for that reason, but custom orders are always welcome!"
Amanda, creator of Persistent Green, created this stunning art journal page in watercolor, wax and ink.
"This dreamy theme was a perfect opportunity for me to play with art journaling," said Amanda. "Starry skies have always been magic to me. As part of my page reads, "Oceans apart, we look at the stars and are as one. We are never alone."
Althea, creator of Salvaged Expression, created these stellar pieces.
"This week I finally got a chance to let out an idea that had been knocking at the back of my brain for some time!" said Althea. "These magnets depict our solar system which remind me both of astronomy and astrology and the long tradition of people looking up and hoping to find answers."
Trina, creator of Woven Chains Jewelry, created this phenomenal piece.
"Stars have always inspired me to wish, to dream and to reach beyond them," said Trina. "From that wishing and dreaming came the idea for this necklace "Among the Stars"".
Teri, creator of Giraffe Label Designs, created this sensational "Out of this world" Maryanne clutch - maybe?
"I've been sitting on this theme all week, thinking it was great but not knowing where to go with it," said Teri. "So, I dug through my fabric bins and found this fabric - it is a metallic, crinkle textured satin and it looked very "astronaut" to me. So I started with that and this is what I ended up with!"
Felicia Kramer, creator of Another Bright Idea, created this magnificent piece titled, “In our stars”.
"When I saw the theme, the first thing that came to mind was this Shakespeare quote: “The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in our stars, but in ourselves if we are underlings.” – Shakespeare," said Felicia.
Maureen, a talented artist created this fabulous piece.
"Yes, I love the night sky and have often wished on the first star I saw . . . and yet my favorite star is still the sun . . so here's my 9x12 tribute," said Maureen.
Phoenx Ravenswing, creator of CrowTarot, created this fantastic piece.
"The first of what I am calling Interactive Landscapes was discovered for the cancer art request earlier this year," said Phoenix. "Even tho' that piece was not able to be finished in time, the concept it engendered is being both fun & exciting for me, and hopefully soon, for others as well. :-D As you can see from the back, the elements are designed to be taken off and rearranged as one sees fit, allowing for both fun & eduction in the creation of one's own landscape. With the fading daylight, I needed to take the picture early, ntm it seemed a good moment for an 'in-progress' pic. The flower has now been finished and added, and the piece is ready to go to its new home. :-D"
Phoenix Racenswing, creator of CrowTarot, created these beautiful pieces.
"Inspired by "Inspire Me Thursday"'s theme this week of 'Wings', in addition to this week's TST theme of 'In the Stars', it came to me that it was time to use these little wings I'd bought from a fellow Etsian earlier this year. So, I present to you..." said Phoenix.

There will be more in the series, but these are the ones I have done so far. :-D
Doodlestar created this journal cover. I think I will be positioning the clous differently. I think I will make them like steps she is bounding up. What do you think? (Please join me for the Ning process discussion as well - http://thursdaysweettreat.ning.com/forum/topics/process-1
The words on the clouds read: "Dream Big", "Believe" and "Play Among the Stars"
This week, I looked around and found Stars among Etsy artist items. These folks do not know they are in the TST yet...I am going to write to surprise them. More artists to celebrate and invite to play - YAY!

After viewing this joyful TST are you feeling inspired and already dreaming? Are you ready to dive in and start creating for the next theme??
Well, the next theme is theme is.........."Angels".
We have all had those moments when someone or something helped us in ways we can't quite explain. The friend that said the one thing we needed to hear without knowing we needed to hear it, the phone call that came just in the nick of time, or perhaps we have arrived some place at a time when we would be needed - right there and then. What do angels mean in your life...what do they feel like? Bring it to life!
