He is Risen!....the reason for the season....

I've been working on these so that I could send them to friends for Easter and finally got most of them out in the mail today. They were such a joy to work on and I wish I had another week to do a couple dozen more! I'm thrilled with the way they turned out and people can can hang them as an ornament....drop them on the hook that holds your calender....hang them in the window or hang them on a many ways to decorate with thenm and have a reminder of why we celebrate Easter...indeed it is, because He Lives. I'm going to have a couple on my Etsy store which is of course... 7 Rose Petal Path which I've just set if you want one....let me know!

This is the tray of crosses
isn't it magnigificent
in all it's glitter glory!!!

Six Word Memoir

Here are some pictures of some of my dearest ArtChixyFriends...on a day full or art and food and fun

I have been tagged by my friend Jan of Polka Dot Barn to right my own Six Word Memoir as Hemmingway once did....Sum up your life in six words.... soooo here it is....
My life in Art Joy and Faith... all key ingredients to my daily walk...for I do believe that when we "walk in faith" we have the most joyful life of all and I hope that I express that in my art.

Now the rules are:
1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5.Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!
I am inviting the following friends to come out and play. I love reading each of these friends blogs for different reasons - give them a read - you'll be enriched.

Show us your memoir, girls:

Kelly of Soul Humming
Lennea of Once Upon a Cottage
Frieda Oxenham
Chel of all things ZNE
