...included on each doll's heart is a embroidered heart, that says "I love you". How fortunate all of the little girls born in my extended family were, to have a gift like this, made just for them.
This comforter was created, cut, and sewn by another one of my dear friends and her mother. The amazing story about this perfectly created comforter, is that my friend chose the fabric, color coodinated to go with my home, cut all of the patches, and then her mother did all of the sewing, with machine and the finishing touches by hand...with VERY POOR eye sight. This is one of many comforters that she sews each day, for people all over the world. I marvel at her joy of giving, regardless of the fact that she is SO limited in her ability to see. What a treasured gift this is to me. Every time I walk past it, I am reminded of this giving lady and her very talented daughter.
Isn't it something what one can do with a simple block of wood? I knew this next friend of mine for a few years, before I realized how truly artistic she was! At our daughter's school, her artwork was first discovered, when she brought these perfectly real looking, painted birdhouses into school, for us to sell at our school giftshoppe. We were all so surprised at her hidden talents that were surfacing. In my home I have five pieces of art created by this good friend. I hope she is continuing to share her artistic skills, blessing others as she did me. Creativity comes in so many different facets of life, and it is my belief that even those who claim they are not creative, really are, in ways that they just might not be aware of. My introduction to the world of blogging has proven to me, once and for all, that everyone of those involved, are so very creative! I have been made more aware of the gift of creativity, than ever before in my life. Thanks to each and every one of you, who in some way or another, share your own form of creativity with the world around you, and with me through each and every blog that I visit.
