It is not ours to keep.…that is what my Mom taught me.  Our time, our talents, our gifts, and our money ~ God gave us each something to offer and to share with each other and especially those in need. 

She also taught me that we live in abundance even though we may not see it  ~  as I grow older I see what abundance is.

I am still learning to be a Giver with a whole heart and learning to put my full trust in GOD....and living with purpose.

I pass a Church on my way thru Tamaqua PA ~ their sign in front has a message that changes now and then…..but one sticks in my head.

No one ever became poor by giving.  Anne Frank.  ….It sticks with me.

If you follow along on FaceBook you have seen that our Artist friend Wendy Young and her husband Kevin are in need.  And it touches my heart to see the Artists Community that has reached out to their family…..we are among many amazing giving people.

This coming weekend at Penn’s Woods Painters in Mechanicsburg PA ~ we are hosting a Creative Benefit for Wendy and KevinJane Allen and I wanted to extend the invite to those that could not make the weekend to create with us by offering our Patterns to benefit Wendy and Kevin for the month of August.

I invite you to create ‘Cheese Please’ 

‘Cheese Please’ ornament was created using the sculpting skills I have learned from Wendy. Each pattern comes with sculpting images and painting instructions.

The wood tree design was created and sent to Sheila Landry to cut ~ gosh I just love her bevel cut ornaments…these are so cute!  More to come on these trees!

Extra Trees sold separately $3.00.  Patterns $8.00.

All ‘Cheese Please’ pattern sales will benefit Wendy and Kevin for the Month of August.
