Plates For Circle Templates

There's something fun about using
what you already have to create something new.
How simple to rotary cut around various sized plates
for circle shapes because they are relatively thin. 
As for the much thicker pizza stone and clear bowl...not so much...
although it does offer a nice circle to trace.
A new piece has begun of neutral grays
accented with red, black and white batik circles
cut using plates and bowls.

I Choose To Be Strong

 "We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong .
 The amount of work is the same."

This quote has been on a yellow index card for quite some time

Creative Heritage - Advent Candle Holder

 Every Christmas for several years, my Dad
would create something useful for each of us 7 "kids".
I use this candle holder he fashioned from
chair railing to celebrate Advent.
I am thankful for the creative heritage from my Dad.
