Wrapped up in a Promise


"Live in the present and forgive your past" So full of promise, isn't it?


On the backside of these little candy wrappers are sweet promises, many of them quite extraordinary. I saw these (ate these) and saved many as a great alternative to actual copper or gold leaf for projects.





Continuing on with the collaborative collage canvas (posted below on Mar. 25) the first promise pulled from the pile was the one I used. Without hesitation. Juxtaposing the past and the present is at the heart of my existence right now.

Easter promises new life, a future filled with hope and assurance. All of a sudden, the past is easy to let go of when I see solid ground ahead. I am not left alone, I am tenderly cared for and loved fiercely through outrageous acts. I'm held so close to something larger than myself. May you be richly blessed in all the ways that love manifests itself to you.

Beautiful words, pretty technique, clever treat with both yumminess and hope waiting inside!

Love!

Dove wrappers are just fraught with possibilities. Chocolate and canvas- we knew it's time had to come...lol

Love! (! <I like that!)
