Advent- Creative Haven

A Creative Gathering in the Home
started as a one evening event.
 This week it became a 2 day- 10 am- 9 pm
 Open Studio.

Then we added three more days
 in the week
to the Creative Adventure.

With a vision of seasonal gatherings,
and plenty of wrapping paper covered 
cereal and cracker boxes.

Wire handles to hang for display.
Copies of 100 year old Christmas postcards,
tulle and Dollar Store ornaments.

Old hymnal pages,
a few bells
and tissue paper flowers.

Paper medallions,
and tissue paper cut
 with a fringing scissors.

Christmas Ideals magazines
 in the stock pile from the 1940's and 50's.
Wonderful images and 
beautiful colors for collage work.

Some doilies, felt hearts,
 burlap and a 
snowflake or two.

A full table of "FINDINGS"
With wonderful conversation,
music and stories galore.
A perfect ADVENT gathering.

What a blessing.
Moms and daughters.
Neighbors and friends.

Catching up and making new connections.
And in the middle of it ALL-
this baby Jesus Gift.
