Final Day of Retirement Sale :)

So I am officially *pulling the plug* and the last day to order stamps will be May 31st! You can still get awesome deals at $1.00 each image untrimmed & unmounted until then. I am out of stock on about 50 images, so if you do order, you might include some "second choices" just in case. Thanks a bunch!

flower cross

So....this is our flower cross from Easter ( a little late....but I had to wait for my *tech support* to come home for a visit :) it starts with the bare chicken wire cross ( see previous posts ) and people add flowers to it during the Festival of Flowers service, until it's transformed into something beautiful! Just. like. us. He is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

Resurrection Day mobile

He is Risen indeed! This *wraps up* the series of Lent/Easter mobiles. I like to use this gauze-like fabric to represent the burial cloth- the gold is for royalty/priceless/etc. and the pastels are just add-ins for spring :) I used the mirror tile garland to reflect the lights. One of the highlights of the day: a little girl visiting told me that when she looked up at the ceiling, she saw Jesus :) and that is exactly what I was shooting for :) Alleluia ><>

Holy Week Mobile

For Holy Week, the sanctuary mobile takes on a darker look, and rightly so. I removed all the purple and most everything else and removed a few *spokes* to make it smaller. I painted a vine of thorns on some kraft paper for the focal point, and there are three spikes hanging below that. I also made 30 *pieces of silver* from gray paper and embossed them in my Cuttlebug to make them look 'coin like' ( at least that's how I see it :)  Looking foward to Resurrection Sunday~
