I was, like Maz, involved in this challenge. I decided to do a “book”, the shape of which was inspired by Ingrid Dijkers – check out her fabulous work at:
The challenge was to make a Spirit House in the form of our choosing, to include four rooms inspired by the quote on Claire’s blog:

“There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, an emotional, a mental and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.” – Rumer Godden, 1907-1998.

This is my interpretation. The two pictures here are the front cover and the rear cover. The preceding four entries are the rooms.

I wrote four pages – it could have been so much more, but decided to end my entry with a visual summing up as it were – this would be it.

The text at the top of the spread reads: – We are all elemental creatures at heart;
in the spiral it reads: Every woman has the right to become herself and do whatever she needsd to do.

This flower is actually stitched into, but the scan is not showing it very clearly.
