Here's a closeup of the central figure. I found them in National Geographic. She's actually almost lying on the ground but when cut out of its context and placed upright, it almost gives a Mary and Jesus effect, I think.
I've also been busy creating gifts for friends and family this week.
This is a bookmark I made for my stepfather, Gary. He is a minister. I made this one rather long so he could use it in his reference books or Bible.
I hope Justyn isn't reading this. :) She loves Starbucks and I made this little cup wrap for her. I made a doll a while back with this fuzzy purple yarn on it and she loved it so I added some to this. I like the color combination. I'm not sure it will fit a Starbucks cup but it does fit one of our glasses perfectly, so I was thinking she could also use it on a candle glass or something. She loves candles.
This weekend Patrick and I are going to work on a special gift for Justyn and Jason.
Today I plan to work on a gift for my brother, Tony. Mom's and Gary's are done and I want to get them in the mail soon.
This was a gift from our neighbor, Jan. She showed up in her apron the other day to bring these to us.
Oh man, they were good! She called them waffles. Very thin, crispy and light; sort of like funnel cake.
We are so blessed with great neighbors. I feel so abundantly blessed this Christmas.
I've also uploaded some cards from my SoulCollage reading this week. The cards with the I Am One Who statements are over on my SoulCollage blog.
I lay in bed last night with tears streaming down my face, so grateful for my life.
It is so rich.
I am surrounded by love.
I am blessed.
I used to fantasize about dancing with Patrick. Now we dance all the time.
Last night I was looking at a blog and her playlist loaded. The first song was Van Morrison's "Someone Like You."
I called up the steps to my dear Patrick and said, "I need to dance."
He dropped what he was doing and came to the kitchen to dance with me.
Last night we decided to forego television and do our own quiet things for a while.
Then we watched CSI
When it went off, he said "now I have a surprise for you."
He turned the channel and there was Faith Hill on SoundStage singing her Christmas album.
It was perfect and beautiful.
See why I love him?
Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
Oh, and thanks for the help with our website!
I really appreciate you taking time out to check for me.
