Putting my Etsy shop on Vacation

I am putting my Etsy shop on vacation
I can no longer guarantee that items will arrive at their destination in time for Christmas
I do however still have my New Zealand shop,  "Felt" open for business,  for New Zealand Customers.
I have been amazed at the amount of Nativity set orders that I have had.
And if you did miss out on one, I plan to re list them for a New Years special.

Love and light  Marie

Babies in Baskets

It is so cool when you create something that people love
How I enjoy making these wee babies for children, and to know that they will be played with, taken out of their baskets, tucked up in a blanket, then cuddled, and return to bed in their baskets.

I have lost count of the amount of Babies in Baskets I have made over the years.

The Warmth of Early Summer

The warmth of early Summer in New Zealand, is starting to seep into my body
I feel good, sitting in the sunshine, and letting those warming rays bring warmth
It is a really busy time, this end of the year, this finishing off of affairs
I am looking forward to  relaxing on a Summer break soon, with family and friends.

Love and light  Marie

Walking in the New Zealand Bush

How I love walking in the New Zealand bush
Not too far from my home is a bush reserve, 
My husband and I often go for walks there.
Green ferns abound, and  the sweet sound of bird song fills the air.

Love and light  Marie

Let your light shine

Sometimes things happen that completely throw you
This is what recently happened to me
There was a reason why doors were closed
So that you can open one that leads you to the perfect road
I have to ignite the light , and let it shine.
I am an original and cannot be replaced
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
I now can ignite the light, and let it shine

For Nicki, a dear friend.  love and light  Marie

The Winter Moon Maiden

Carefully she held this acorn
Through the fierce Winter storms
She held it close to her heart
Until the first warming rays of Spring sunlight appeared

Then she would plant it in Mother Earth 's warm soil

This OOAK picture is for all my friends in the Northern Hemisphere
I have listed it in my Etsy shop and I am happy to swap for it.

Love and light  Marie
