Saving Grace

I am finding difficulty in motivating myself towards the joy that fills ones heart during the coming festive season.      I will make a special effort, this year especially,  to direct empowerment to those who (according to my belief standards)  gracefully add  balance .

 borrowed from Pinterest.....   warning...addictive :)

Distrubed by the actions of the over stuffed gobblers of the world,   I have mustard up extra effort to unruffle and project gracious light. 

Previously, I spoke of gratitude for my cyber♥s  that over the past 2 yrs. have inspired and brightened my journey.  Thankful for meeting so many of you, from every corner (notice my globe on right side? I can see yooooouuuu!) : ) 
One such blog friend, Lynn, who is the artist/shop owner of Clothes Encounters, here in town (North Bay Ontario Canada)  provided me with a very unique piece to give to one of you. 

I put all you names in my fav. knitted bucket hat,  had my house gnome oversee and with  eyes closed tightly ,,,  a  wave  of my magic wand..... and  the very busy, creative heart............Estelle!!!!  South Wales, United Kingdom
Estelle is busy with her finest creation #4  her new baby....CCCCongratulations!
I  quack on and on  about handmade gifts.  I feel that your time is valued  (priceless)  to those who are ♥special to recieve your gifts. 
 Many creative♥s  (   I  have come to meet,    I am in  "awe"   of their passion, courage and commitment. 
So take a look, this year, to the small up and coming entrepreneurs.
For my fav's you can find me as a buyer....Prudence Puddleduck.  I.m still "under the bed" about passion, courage and commitment.
