“Every Time A Bell Rings…

An angel gets his wings,” says Zuzu Bailey in the movie, It’s A Wonderful Life.

This classic movie starring James Stewart and Donna Reed is one of my favorite holiday movies.  So I created this doodle today in remembrance:

Bell Doodle

I used a bell cookie cutter shape (see yesterday’s post) for my stencil:

Christmas Cookie Bell

I think what I like most about this movie is the message.  Sometimes I don’t feel like I make much of a difference in other people’s lives but the movie reminds me that it is the little things that I do that can have a big impact on other’s lives.  A smile to a stranger, mailing a card to a friend who is sick or perhaps buying a bag of groceries for someone who is hungry.

It isn’t the big expensive gifts that people remember but kindness shown by a stranger.

Cheers Friends!  🙂

Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder – Part 1

I started making these magazine collages in 2007:

Beauty - Eye of the Beholder

I had some old Lapidary Journal magazines.  At the time I was doing a lot of beading.

So these were really fun to make!  Adding old photographs was a new experiment:

Robin a rare bird

Of course I had to add a little humor!

The above one reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie, “The Birds!”  That movie gave me nightmares for days as a kid.  🙂

Happy Creating!
