This garland is created for my friend, neighbor and mentor, SaraJean, who works tirelessly for Peace, Justice and to make God's Love available to all beings.
I was hoping to hang it on her door as a welcoming presence , even as she is afar this holiday season.
Planning and events seldom agree. It is snowing and blowing right now, and I too am called away unexpectedly to celebrate the life of my Dear Father in Law Mel, who went live with the Saints last night.
Shiney- I hope you can enjoy this digitally until you come home!
I love Advent!
Expectant waiting...especially when you know there is a happy ending!
Each year the By Hand Artists Yahoo Group- facilitated by Quietfire Design's Suzanne Cannon, host the 12 days of Christmas Gift Mingle.
13 of us make 12 gifts to send off to the other 12 to open...one each on the designated day.
The hostess-person 13- me this year- sends a gift for you to open on your own day.
Left is my basket full of gifts waiting to be opened!
Here is the wrapping/envie of Day 1..........
........opened to reaveal this lovely up-cycled encaustic fridge calendar!
Thank you Marg!
Please stop back each day for the next 11 and your comments and questions are always welcomed!
I created it with a friend and Mentor, Miss Karen in mind.
I don't want to embarrass her with details, just honor her by saying she is someone who sees the beauty in butterflies and snowflakes, and her natural beauty is reflected in daily life just as these wonders of nature.
In spite of hardship and adversity in her own life, she always finds time to be kind and witness to the goodness and love that is available to us all.
I am a multi-media artist,facilitator,educator and nurturer with a major interest in fibers, paper and book arts and spirituality and the arts.
I reuse, recycle and use rejectamenta as much as possible.
