Time just never ceases to amaze me with how quickly it is flowing through my days! It was quite the surprise to see how long it had been since I had peeked here in blogland. In celebration of the season, I wanted to have an art blessing giveaway for this sweet boxed set of treasures pictured above! The lovely butterfly box is filled with a card print of one of my original designs, a mini altered journal, glass butterfly holder with two candles, a pocket mirror, card set and candy canes! If you would like to be included in the drawing for this set just leave your contact info in the comment section. I would so appreciate your help in spreading the word about my Holiday Etsy Sale! Sale ends Sunday, Dec 16th!
Just add a note with a link on your blog, facebook, twitter etc about the sale and for every place you mention my little sale I will gladly add your name an additional time to my treasure box drawing. The Etsy sale ends on Dec 24th and that evening I will select a winner for the Art Blessing!

My hope is this might be a place of reflection for those who stroll through. Art has long been a source of divine comfort for me in times of great joy as well as seasons of deep pain. I am often drawn to the imagery that speaks of journey and the unfolding of our stories....the butterfly, the passing of seasons, a key that might open the door to a heart that has been wounded. It is along our individual journeys that life brings defining moments that speak to us. Gifts of hope and wisdom, personal growth, words of encouragement during times of great struggle, lessons born of taking risks and revealing who we really are, tears wept, laughter shared, questions that wrestle with life and faith, a heart that has been healed or dreams bravely spoken aloud and shared. It requires courage to open our eyes and listen to what is being whispered in the private places of our hearts. My prayer is that these images and creative reflections might invite you nearer to your own unique story and into the heart of the journey.
"DANCE WITH THE BUTTERFLIES AND SOAR ON TRANSLUSCENT WINGS"
" Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves: Who am I to be brilliant? Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we unconciously give other people permission to so the same. As we were liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others" (Marianne Williamson)
