I love that bag - I don't mind if you keep showing pics of it! I wouldn't be without my heat pack. I like the labels you have on them.

Good morning sweet friend and artist! Oh dear, you are reminding me of a bag that I wanted to make a while back.....a white linen bag!!! I will get to it...there is just so much fun to be had with paper!!!!

Have a perfectly beautiful day filled with love. Anita

More beauty from a beautiful soul! I love your creations, dear friend...
Thank you so much for stopping by...yes indeed, Minnesota is very rich in American Indian culture.
In fact, the park with the waterfall has some land which is sacred, along with a sculptural mask of Chief Little Crow.
One of my favorite authors is Louise Erdrich. Have you read her? If Native American culture interests you, dear Dzintra, her books are gorgeously written!
Hugs,
- Irina

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
