Life never ceases to amaze me. I am filled with the constant itch to see more wondrous things each day. If I’m being honest Christmas was not always my favourite time of year due to bad reminders of my past. But that’s all changed. I am anew and I thank God for all my blessings. The creative force is strong within me this year just like the window frost. I know that I have been blessed with the energy to create things that were not once there using my hands, mind, eyes, heart, and the very breath running through me. It has been a pleasure. I love the beauty around me because it gives me energy to be or do more myself. And I think that’s a beautiful thing. Enjoy a photo of a pair of mittens I made for a friend for Christmas from recycled materials. Miigwetch!
