In Celebration of Craft

March is Craft Month in the United States, and I think it’s a brilliant idea to celebrate and to foster crafting as an art form. I pay tribute to  my craft for:

  • keeping me sane in a sometimes insane world
  • helping me to stay relaxed and focussed
  • keeing me in touch with myself
  • keeping me in touch with other crafters from around the world
  • helping me develop, nurture and celebrate  my creative spirit
  • the experience of  JOY, Friendship and Passion

In celebration, I have a happy dance to share  – Earth Sampler is finished and framed 🙂 I had just the right moulding, which I turned into a frame that fit the design to a T.

Wishing you a Joyful and productive Crafting Month in March 😉
