Day Two :: Do Things From Your Soul

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, a joy. – Rumi

July 10, 2015

Hello Mother, hello daughter,

Rising early to the sound of the river and to the butterflies sipping dew drops from blades of grass.  Today was a busy day….

Our first project of the day was a Talisman Necklace.  Similar to the simple knotted rope plant hangers of my childhood, we used the same pattern to create our necklaces.

We worked up an appetite and enjoyed a scrumptious lunch that included the most delicious assortment of artisan hummus imaginable.  The hummus was gift from the generous people of Roots!

Thank you, Roots for your generosity and support!!!

There was much excitement about a resident bunny and the girls were delighted to discover that the bunny had a baby.

Later Mothers and Daughters gathered ’round to explore various types of transfer printing techniques for embellishing the pages of the journals that they received from ecojot.  Thank you again, ecojot!!!

Then we began prepping our wood rounds.  Tomorrow we will be exploring transfer printing to wood.

Our rustic wood rounds were a gift from the generous folks at Walnut Hollow!   Walnut Hollow grew from a small, family-owned business into an internationally renowned wood manufacturer. They are well know in the wood products industry for their high standards and environmental initiatives.

* Our next post will reveal what what the girls and moms created!

Thank you, Walnut Hollow, for your generosity and support!!!

In between all the doing and making there were moments of great joy and wonder.  One such moment came in the form of a lovely gift sent to us from Hum-fi Hummingbird Feeders!

Hum-Fi is the brilliant creation of Lisa Durante.  Hum-Fi feeders provide an opportunity to connect with nature in a most beautiful and delightful way, by allowing hummingbirds to eat from your hand!!!

Made so & rooted by love,
