Merry Christmas

Hello again, darlings. I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments and for sticking around when I decide to go missing for awhile. Can you believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve? Wow. It seems like it was just a few months ago that we were wrapping gifts and looking forward to a new year. Do you remember last year, dolls? I do. We were all feeling the burden of 2009 and hoping with everything in us that 2010 was going to be a better year. And I do believe that it was for the most of us. Do you agree? But now we have another new year ahead of us, full of new hopes, fears and dreams. 2011.

In the spirit of giving, I told you that I would have some stuff to share with you all. If you are an artist or designer, you know how "stuff" just seems to accumulate around you. Creations and supplies. This and that. Good stuff and things that just need to be tossed. Well, I have some "good stuff" that I would like to quit looking at. It has been in my work room for long enough. So, my dear friends, I am offering it up to you....... for free. Here they are.

I played around with what is called "yantra" designs some time back. They are sort of like mandalas. Designs that are said to hold certain energy. Many people use them as focal points when meditating. I, honestly, just think they are pretty and the symmetrical design is very grounding. This yellow one is for "Expansion". You know, growth and stuff like that. It's 5"x 7".

This 5"x 5" silver and blue beauty is for "Nourishment". We could all use a little bit of that, couldn't we.

A nice little collection of beads. I have way too many beads in my life, and I never even use beads! I can't tell you how many there are or what they are made of, but there are a lot of them. Lots of pretty blues and greens. I must have been on a kick.

Three tiny wire wrapped rings that I made. They all fit my pinky perfectly, so I am warning you that they are small. However, they look quite nice strung up on a necklace. We are going to call these numbers one through three, left to right. #1 is light pink rose quartz. #2 is hematite. #3 is a mix of rose quartz and other pinkish beads.

Oh, yes. And then there is this bag. Just a casual shoulder bag made with cotton fabric. Pretty palm frond print on the outside, brown on the inside. Its a good summer time piece. Come on. Use your imagination. I know it is snowing outside, but try to think ahead.

So. Here's how this is going to work. We are going to do a "first come, first serve" sort of thing. Like I said before, you have to already be a follower of my blog. If there is something here that you would like to have, just leave a comment below telling me which one. Easy peasy. The first one to ask for an item gets that item. If you like more than one of these items, tell me what your first and second choices are in your comment. If someone has already claimed your first choice, but not your second, you get your second choice. See how this works? You can only win one item.

Good luck. I hope to be seeing a lot more of you lately. I am feeling better and more clear headed after that break. And I have tons of things to share with you.

Merry Christmas, dolls.

Ok, first two choices where the bag (of course!) and ring #2. But it looks like others claimed those already. My third choice would be the first picture!!
