Guardian Angels

Did you ever notice how the chapters of your life will have themes?  I began to notice years ago when I was
driving myself too hard and found myself in the middle of the "crash and total your car" theme.  Actually, I only had to do it twice before I caught on that I needed to rewrite the "screenplay" of my life but quick.

Right now, I'm finding the theme to be much more to my liking.  Twice last week it was pointed out to me by sweet clients that I am blessed with guardian angels.  Dear Clarice mentioned that, "Angels come in all shapes and sizes.  Maybe yours are mermaids and faeries."   And sweet Linda told me, "Heavenly Father was with you when you did my Angels."  I am just now working on a cross stitch for my friend Barbara that simply states, "Angels are often disguised as stitchers."  I've got to say, I do feel blessed to have fallen into an occupation that I not only love, but brings me in contact with such loving, gracious, and gentle "angels".

I adore you all.

Speaking of angels...
Today I received an e-mail with the most lovely and gracious recipient I've ever seen.  Isn't she scrumptious?
Vivienne, I hope the mermaid that your Mom stitched for you brings you a lifetime of enjoyment.


And here are more angels in rare form...

Gorgeous framing Jill! You are certainly watched over by many mermaids and fairies. I must get to all those projects I have in my head so the end result, via your framing, becomes a reality. Great work!

Stunning, stunning work. They all inspire me to finish my Chatelaine - Desert Mandala so I can have it framed by Jill!

Jill - it was great seeing you last week. Thx for letting everyone show me your process this time. It's nice to see what actual care you've been putting into our treasures. I wish everyone could come to your studio and visit your babies, your employees and, most of all, you. It's an honor to know you and to have your work in our home. Thx again - enjoyed it!

Oh my goodness! Are those your works? It’s really stunning and one of a kind! I don’t wanna sound childish but I’m fond of mermaids though they remain as a myth. Deep in my heart, I believe they exist and they truly are beautiful beyond imagination. Keep up the good work!
