New Healing Art Blocks
























I am now offering 'Healing Art Blocks" which make very special gifts for a friend or loved one who might be in need of hope and encouragement...or just a little something that says, "I understand where you are my friend"! The blocks are 3.5 x 4.5 inches and are just right for a small gesture of kindness. Customers may choose which design they would like on their block from my entire collection of art card collage prints. You may find these on my Website, Ebay and Etsy stores!

















Several months back I shared about a heartwarming project I participated in called "The Ties that Bind" to raise funds and support awareness of Ovarian cancer. This large, amazing art doll was created that held handcrafted, healing-oriented, charms and beautiful art ties lovingly created by over 100 participating artists. A raffle is currently in progress to raise funds for the cause through September 30th when a very lucky soul will win this incredible treasure! A beautiful book with these unique creations and survivor stories has now been published and it is filled with gorgeous photos of this very meaningful project. The proceeds will also be contributed to fight ovarian cancer and you can find the information about ordering the book here. I recently ordered my copy and can't wait to receive it. I have also heard such sweet stories of others purchasing groups of these books to take to cancer treatment centers etc. The charm I created is hanging directly in the center of the first photo with the vintage girl, metal filigree wings and says "Heal". It was really an honor to contribute and watch this project come together over the months. I can't wait to look through the pages and pages of one of a kind pieces and hear of the hope in the lives of those who stories are shared. There is nothing that brings me greater joy then when passions and gifts converge to support and uplift those in need!
























I hope you find some rest and relaxation in the days of summer still to come. I plan to join my family for some adventures over the next few weeks. There is still so much for me to hear, take in and reflect on and I am grateful for the opportunity! Thank you all for your comments and encouragement during this season of waiting and reflection!

The blocks are a brilliant idea Lani, and as always you are giving with the hope, sentiments and faith of healing. No surprise to me at all that you were involved in The Ties That Bind.

Enjoy your time with your family over these next few weeks...enjoy every special moment.

Oh isn't that doll just wonderful...it's a pity they're not taking payment through Paypal as this will put a lot of people off...particularly those like me from overseas...And your art blocks...this is a fabulous idea dear girl...and so inexpensive....

Beautiful blocks and wonderful idea! Great for those in need of knowing that someone cares. I've had blocks made for me in ACEO size for months and have had different ideas to put on them but never really pulled through. These are wonderful! Thanks for sharing them!

Hi Lani, I am so enjoying the beauty of your blog. I am creating an art card for a friend who is a cancer survivor. I would like to use one of your quotes, verse, I'm not sure exactly. "you are loved, you are chosen, you are a special gift from God dear one". I wondered if it is indeed a quote, verse or your own words taken from Biblical text. Thank you so much. Inspired again, Lisa

Hi Lani, I looked through your sidebars and saw your copyright info. I see that the text are indeed your quotes. They beautifully explain the unfailing love of God. The one I wanted to use is on your sidebar but probably was on one of your pieces at one time. If I use it on my gift piece I will certainly quote you and include your blog-site if I can have your permission. Thanks for your time. Respectfully, Lisa
