A "tote" collaboration....




My sister and I collaborated on the making of this tote bag! I wanted to be able to carry a mandala affirmation with me at all times...a reminder of sorts...(From the Inside Out) but I do not sew!! I am fortunate to have a sister that does however...(we each have our talents!!) So, I painted my affirmation...and my sister made it into a tote bag!! I am loving this....and think that it just might be some of the finest work the two of us have done together...So in this case TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE!!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

This is simply outstanding...gorgeous..artful...warm.. beautiful!

I didn't see the specfic affirmation for this mandala on your blog though -- I searched 2 pages...must be farther back in your archives. At any rate..I know its supportive for you!

Pattie,
So beautiful. What a great way to bring some peace and joy to every moment you look at it. I knwo when I need a lift I will often take out my notebook just to look at my mandalas. That is of course when I c'm not in a position to actually create one. The two of you have done such beautiful work!
