The Words of Me Project where Leslie is having the "52 Words 52 Weeks" Challenge, "Each week you will be given a WORD to think about, write about, scrap about, collage about and LIVE. Each word will be positive and uplifting in order to better our days, our weeks, our months, our year!"
The word last week was "Gratitude" and indeed, I have much to be grateful for. As I continued working on my Song of Songs lady, I continued to reflect on the beautiful words that inspired me to start making her. "How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves behind your veil... You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes, With a single strand of your necklace."Song of Songs 4:1,9 How lovely to think of a LOVE like this, that even when we grow older and wrinkles start coming out, even when we are tired and so busy, even when we are not our best selves, Someone still loves us and thinks we are so beautiful.
I have added the lace veil and a pearl necklace. She looks like a bride, doesn't she? I will add a bit of gold poster paint and then she will be finished.
I am grateful that my desk is a lot tidier this week! It's hard to find stuff when it's all buried under other things. For a peek at more desks, drop by Julia's blog. Doni is having a Pearls and Lace Giveaway in her blog and I'm linking this up with her link party.
And yes, I am grateful for all of you who come visit and leave me such sweet and encouraging words! Thank you so much! Remember, I was planning a giveaway for when I reached 200 followers? I am grateful for each one of my followers and it's time for my giveaway! I will make a post about it next time and I hope you can come back and join it!
