it's "TOO"sday....CELEBRATING the CREATIVE heart!

Someday I look forward to hugging God and saying "THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"  It is my hope that as you celebrate God's work of art above...the below art from around the world will also be a CELEBRATION of him and his gift to us... The  DESIRE to create and carry on arts of our families through the generations.

Breathtaking, Claudia Pfeil's masterpiece is a quilt I cannot stop studying.  The quilting is the "ice"ing on the cake.  The most recent QN is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!



The title of this piece caught my eye and then reading the story was humbling....Tibetan Refugees in Northern India are creating "Chime of Compassion"....I admire that they have had their lives threatened and kicked out of their homeland and they create a piece of "compassion"....



Sean and Noah are creating a Lego Christmas village and this Starbucks by Sean is so cute!  He knows me so well!

Kevin's favorite is Noah's "SK8" (skate) shop.......


African hand painted candles....great ideas for free motion quilting patterns or line of fabric or for a Dr. Seuss birthday cake...


Love of a parent and child.....Shona art is created by Zimbabwe's largest tribe and is one of the most significant art forms to come out of Arica in the 20th century.  Family relationships are often represented by the animal kingdom in this art form....
May your "TOO"sday be filled with "TOO" much of...............
