Sacred Life Sunday: Breathing art


A couple of weeks ago, while Tina and I were driving up to Leeds for a night at the theatre, we talked about our hopes and dreams... at one point I remember saying, 'I wish I were a millionaire, then I could support dozens of struggling artists, I could be their patron...'

Well, as we all know, thoughts become things - and no, sadly, I haven't won the lottery - last week I stumbled across this website while looking at this artist's beautiful work on Etsy, and lo and behold, I've become a Patron - and it's FREE!!!!!! I receive daily emails about featured artists and their creations, I can send e-cards of my favourite pieces - and I'm fulfilling my dream...

I really believe those of us who are passionate about art can support others creating art, no matter what we earn. The internet has opened up so many wonderful opportunities to share our thoughts and dreams, and expose each other to websites we may not have come across on our own.

So you will notice several new buttons along the sidebar... check out my favourites on Etsy - I add to them daily, both things and artists :o) There is so much talent and beauty in this world, let's share some...

PS Thank you so much for all the supportive comments last week - I sooo appreciate it!! Esther returned safely on Wednesday and had a great time - she wanted to stay longer! She tried rock climbing, caving, abseiling, quadbiking... and has returned sooo grown up and even more confident - what more could a mama want????
