A Gift of the Heart

I have a friend who has a really BIG heart!  She donates her time to help kids in need by being an ELF!  Her name is Elf Smiley and she works all year to help kids have ONE magical day with Santa each year.

If I was to doodle Elf Smiley’s heart, it would look something like this – with lots and LOTS of glitter of course:

Heart Zentangle

The mission of Fantasy Flight is to provide 60 impoverished and at-risk children from the Spokane area – a special day with Santa, Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and his crazy elves!  🙂

It takes 100’s of volunteers and Alaska Airlines to make a special day each year for these children who have lost their sense of wonder and have a dim glow of hope.  If you’d like to see photos about Fantasy Flight, check out this link:  http://www.nwnorthpole.org/Photos.aspx

I was thinking my three doodles would look great together as a series:

3 doodles together

What do you think?  I’d love to hear from you!

Have a magical day!  🙂

  6. I love your doodles! Together they are even more beautiful. I’m working on one that is taking forever. Should have started with something smaller and maybe not tried to incorporate colours. Live and learn. 😄

    • Thank you Lin! Each doodle is on a 4 inch square. Sometimes I prefer going bigger as its easier on the eyes but it does take more time. Look forward to seeing what you create! :-)))
