I am so very excited to announce that my post will be featured on Inspiration Monday on the Ice Queen Blog, on Monday 12-19-11. I was given the task of choosing 4-5 pix of what inspires me to create. I looked back at past posts from other artist. I found they had beautiful posts on a vast assortment of items (all very inspiring) I chose to go a different route. Instead of choosing individual items that inspire me, of which there are many, I went with inspiring women. I have always had an admiration for women with a voice.
My family moved away from grandmothers and aunts at a young age. I would dream of a holiday filled with women cooking and crafting to ready the home for the holidays. I often watched my mother, alone, prepare for the Holiday season.
so Instead of choosing holiday themed items for the post (that would have been the logical thing to do!!) I chose to post about what makes ME think of the holidays. I chose women who touched lives, changed the rules and made there own way.
