Artella Muse, Wishes Meme, Valentine Casserole

Every Christmas Fred at Artella Words and Art sponsors a Muse/Musee swap. Each artist is given the name of another artist to write/design for. This we do by the end of December. However, as with all swaps, some people don't fulfill their promises...guess that's just Fred contacts the ones of us who said we would do a second one, and we send pieces to a second musee. This 4X4 and ATC I made for a musee in Delaware. I hope she likes them. I just don't understand people who make a promise and don't follow up on it! I hope she enjoys these. I write a little poem for her, as well, but I forgot to save it. Oh, well, the old memory isn't what it used to be.

For those of you so inclined, please pray for the Anglican Primate's meeting, Feb. 12-19. This is a conservative, Biblical group vs. the humanists. We are fighting such a fight. Here is a link to read news and blogs about our fight.

Got this meme from Susie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage:

This is a little slate sign that one of my best friends me brought from California....I love it!

I found this recipe online, and I'm going to make it for the Altar Guild brunch/Eucharist/meeting on Saturday. It sounds yummy!

Hi Sioux! Your cards are beautiful and you are very sweet to send them to someone who didn't get them from their original swap partners!

Hello dear Sioux:-) Your cards are so very beautiful and I have no doubt your swap partner will love them! I know what you mean about not understanding how someone doesn't fulfill their obligations!

Loved your answers to the meme, one gets to learn so much more about a person:-) I have one I need to do but it needs time so I'm still working on it! lol

That recipe really sounds yummy, let us know how it turns out and if it was a hit!!

Hugs xoxo

Hi, Sioux,

I got my Valentine today from the Share the HeARTs drawing, and it is absolutely lovely! I'm so happy I got the purple one! I love that color! Such precious little dragonflies and then the larger butterflies. This is something that I will treasure forever!

Your post today is really very full with itmes ranging from those things to make us stop and think (about the Holocaust) to more of your lovely art and to another recipe that sounds totally delicious! As soon as I saw the ingredient of ranch dressing, I was sold! I'm such a sucker for that stuff!

I also love memes and enjoyed your answers. It's so nice to get to know you better.

Thank you again for your kindness in sharing your art with a newcomer to this blog-world!
