Crafting

Recently I was asked to lead the prayers for a very special friend and former colleague who was leaving the place we both worked together at.  She is actually going into the ministry and has begun her ordination training this month.  It was a joy and a privilege to be at her 'leaving lunch' and as I thought and prepared what I might say, I remembered how helpful I found it to have all the names of those I have said I will pray for regularly easily to hand - I have a basked of stones with names on and from time to time I will take a name out (if someone is going through a turbulent time or if they have asked for special prayer) and it will sit on my desk as a reminder to 'pray often' for that person.

So I decided to make some little cards that people could take away with them to remind them to pray for my dear friend and this is what I came up with.  A crocheted flower (like that of Jenny Doh), some Tim Holtz music Washi tape and then a pink 'A' and pink dyed edge all the way round.  They were fun to do.

This is a very lovely idea...and in so many ways.
