Heart of Faith

Christmas is coming near. Have you noticed?

Everywhere in Blogland, people are making preparations for this season. I LOVE seeing all the beautiful handmade Christmas ornaments and thought why not give it a try and make my own.

So here's my first Christmas ornament. (Well, it could do in any season really.)

with a tiny crucifix to represent faith and some dangling lacies to accompany it. A lacy white flower with a little bit of colour added and two beautiful leave charms.

Ah yes, let there be light too!

For the days become shorter and the dark lingers longer.

A time of stillness and reflection.

Tons of patience over here.
In my dreams that is.

You definitely don't wanna hear me sing of angels right now,
I'm hoarse of endless coughing.

This week at City Crafter Ela is our guest designer and Kirsty has a colour challenge for us with beautiful hues of turquois, light brown and white.

Wishing you a happy week filled with love.
