These miniatures were put outside of the tray. I wrote down some emotions (Archetypes) I had been feeling during the week. I named cheerfulness, giddiness, frustration, anxiety, gratitude, and irritability. My frustration was represented by a slinky, cheerfulness was represented by a butterfly, the brightly colored girl represented giddiness, gratitude was represented by tiger, irritability was represented by the bear, and lastly anxiety was represented by a horse. I chose the slinky for frustration because my slinky keeps getting tangled up. I chose the girl for giddiness because she seemed kind of silly and happy. I chose butterfly for cheerful because they always seem to flutter happily. I chose gratitude for the tiger because lions seem to represent pride and tigers seem to be the opposite and gratitude seems to be the opposite of pride. I chose a bear for irritability because bears can be calm but when provoked they get irate easy. And anxiety is represented by the horse because horses gets scared easy. According to other sources the slinky represents flexibility and ability to take action quickly. A butterfly represents joy and spirituality and possibly a transformation. The girl could represent playful, innocent, or childlike nature. Tiger could represent power or ability to exert in various situations. The bear is a symbol of life and could represent independence strength and renewal or death. The horse symbolizes strength, power and endurance.
