Simple Gifts

The ‘Simple Gifts’ Acrylic and Colored Pencil Piece was created for many reasons ~ a love for God and all of his People and the Gifts we are all Graced with and the desire to share with each other. What a better symbol of this than imagining the table of the very first ‘Thanksgiving’, Giving Thanks to God for Blessings from all folks around the table ~ sharing gifts and talent, and enjoying each others company.

Sharing pie with friends from a beautifully created pie box….well, that’s extra special too!

1 Peter 4: 9 -10

 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.

10 Each of you should use whatever

gift you have received

 to serve others, 

as faithful stewards of  God’s grace in its various forms

The pattern ‘Simple Gifts’ is available (here). It is base coated in acrylics and finished in colored pencil over top of watercolor paper adhered to a pie box. The pattern comes with a supply list to shop, a technique sheet, complete instructions including finishing, along with many photos of the completed box!

The pie box is also available (here). We are very blessed to have a talented wood craftsman in our area whom can create from my imagination….how about that! The box is a 12 x 12 x 5 inch square, a 9″ pie fits perfectly! It has a false wrap around side with scallops and a false bottom that lifts out…perfect for pie keeping!

and within the instructions you will find how the ‘pie safe keeper tin’ was created!….do you get it ? pie box~tin pie safe?

Within the pattern I talk a little bit about Pocahontas of Sioux Indian Tribe and the meaning of her name. Prudence, the Pilgrim, received her name from a FaceBook friend….I just loved it. I researched her name to mean ‘Caution or Discretion’.

If you follow along in our FaceBook Group ‘Create with Classic Amy Joanne’ you will find a little bit about creating her nose and chins!

So many new patterns! In a week or two we will share all the new patterns available for 2020 ~ just in case you missed one! Below are a few just released! Shop our Shop tab to purchase.
