Happy TGIF everyone!
One of the great things about doing conference series is meeting new people and spending time with them in different cities throughout the year. This year I was lucky enough to meet Ann Tucker during the Women Healing events that I do for Hazelden. She works for Hazelden and helps organize the conferences.
Each 13" x 19" pillow is made with repurposed felted wool sweaters, scarves and blankets found while happily exploring thrift shops and tag sales. There are more pieces of Ann's wonderful art at her Etsy shop, The Lavendar Tree.
Ann said, "Half the fun of creating is the hunt for materials! I love taking a pile of felted wool pieces and making something new. Creating is a part of me - and something I have to do - however, the greatest gratification is knowing that my work is enjoyed by others."
All you have to do to win is leave a comment answering the following questions (before Monday):
Who/what are you trusting today?
Who/what are you grateful for today?
Who/what is inspiring you today?
Today I'm trusting the power of faith and living in the question. I love this quote from Richard Rohr: "We love closure, resolution, and clarity, while thinking we are people of faith! How strange that the very word faith has come to mean its exact opposite."
I'm grateful for my family and the one I became a part of when I married Steve.
I'm STILL inspired by this great video. To choose joy over the fear and vulnerability of being different or weird or ridiculed is a tremendous act of courage - one that touches all of us.
Can't wait to read your comments! I'll announce the winner on Monday afternoon.
