Angels

I have added three pairs of  wings to my Christmas craft collection this year and I am also sharing these delightful angel patterns with you in this month’s issue of LIG magazine, December 2015.

Each of them has a special gift – a gift I give to you this season:

  • the gift to thrive (present)
  • the gift to love (heart) and
  • the gift to dream (star)

They are an extension of the joy and light that my everyday life brings. I am so blessed! With them I bless you!
