Gifts of Love Update

It was a phenomenally gorgeous day! I was able to take some better pictures today. I also got to socialize with my neighbors, who had a recent family loss. I chatted with Mrs. B for nearly an hour. I felt she needed me today, so I let go of my other plans and enjoyed the chat with her. I am glad I did. They are great neighbors and do things for each other when possible.

Below are the images of bags 2 – 11 completed. I just put the finishing touches on bags 12 and started bags 13 – 16. I will post more pictures as bags are completed. ♥ Angi

Gifts of Love – Step One

Yesterday, Palm Sunday, I planned and started my Gift (Bags) of Love campaign. There will be four steps involved. I am uncertain how many days it will take.

Step one: paint 100 bags with art of love.
Step two: fill bags with tokens of love.
Step three: distribute bags.
Step four: collect stories.

I was able to paint 6 bags after I posted yesterday’s blog; and I am in the process of completing 6 more bags. I photographed them tonight in sets of 3. The lighting is not to great; so, I may retake these tomorrow using daylight.

I am quite excited on how this is proceeding as I am enjoying the process of painting each bag with heavy body (good quality) acrylic paints. I will post my progress as I go. It will probably take me 2 weeks to create 100 bags. I may start distributing bags after I paint and fill a set of 20 bags, which will take me less time. Below are the photos of the bags in sets of 3. The last 3 are in progress. I invite you to give me any feedback on these. Any suggestions?
