whew. what a morning. i've just sent off two dozen of my morning muffins for a bake sale at VCU Medical Center to support the bereavement programs of the hospital. my friend Ann asked me to make these and contributed to the supplies. i love that it's shared work! and while wrapping each of these i was inspired for project ideas for some of the bereavement groups that i will lead in the next year. giving spaces can bring creativity.
when writing to the o-so-talented jurianne matter about her beautiful paper boats and banners this weekend, she responded with good things to say about my work, too. creative spaces bring connection no matter the distance.
my sermon's theme from sept. 7th around tying knots. these paper boats are a way of thinking about how things are joined together, especially when you're writing good wishes or blessings on them before folding. they are a must have. when they're available in the states for purchase, i'll write about it. back to the sermon: i'll be posting a copy of the knot sermon for those who wish to read it on the YCW ning site. if you are saying, what's YCW? then you'll need to ask me to email it to you if you wish to read it.
it's beautiful how there are spaces in our lives where we connect with one another. my creative spaces bring such joy and life into my life. i do my art for my self--feeding my soul--but i take great joy in sharing that part of myself with others. i want others to carry home the colors and designs so that they, too, can be fed. thus, i am meeting you in these creative spaces and sending love your way.
enjoy some of my concentric circles in this image. i love them. love making them so much i added some to a purse for auction. more to come...
peace to you this day.
