I want to show you a project some friends and I are working on;  Well, they are working on it more than I am.  They are more driven and talented in this area than I am.  But I am learning so much about art from them.

It began almost a year ago when we got together to have some fun.  One woman brought an art project of decorating plates.  The idea took off.

Now they are making plates and selling them with the proceeds going to help repair a school in Uganda.

I have made several plates, but mine are not in the same league as these women.  When people see their plates there is a gasp, and wallets come out of purses.

My reviews are more like…”Oh, that looks like you had fun”… and I did.

But being the competitive person that I am, and  wanting to do something well, I have tried again.  This time my plates were good enough to give as Christmas presents.

We are thinking about putting the plates on the web and selling them to increase our giving to Uganda. I’ll let you know if we accomplish that goal.

Thank you for being a part of my life.  I love hearing from each of you so much.  You are my sisters in Christ!

Merry Christmas!
