15th giveaway- an angel inside

In honor of 2 years and the angels I have met.
For the 15th giveaway, I am going to give away a steampunk unzipped heart with an angel inside.
Infinite Love and Gratitude.


What is in your heart?
This polymer clay heart is a Steampunk pendant that has watch parts, watch face, belt, heart, screws, gears, stars, and an angel with wing.
There are words stamped in the background.
The heart is 2 5/8" high and 1 11/16" wide and it is 5/8" thick at the thickest point.

It is made from high quality Cernit polymer clay.

There is a large copper ring in the top of the heart from which hangs a 36” piece of brown satin cord. It will hang about 16-17 inches. The cord is easily removable if you wish to add your own chain or cord.

It will come signed and dated on the back of the pendant.

This is for more entries, one for each thing done on the the list. You do not have to do any of these though.

    Amen.

  8. Yes...another giveaway! And with my favorite zippered heart pendant, an angel inside, which is my favorite because I happen to love angels. When you asked about an angel in my life...it would have to be my husband. He is the best. Though, I have played the role of an angel many times and it has given me much joy over the years. Here is some words of wisdom: "In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy" (Brother David Steindl-Rast). Good luck everyone, but I am hoping I am the big winner of this beauty!

  12. Marie,
    Lady this piece blows me away. Lately my heart has felt all bound up, and then I realized it was only me doing it to myself. I let go of a lot of things lately and began creating from my heart and soul. This piece says all of that to me and more.

    My words of wisdome are to just be yourself and stay true to yourself.

    My angel is my family always strong and there for me when I think nothing is, they are. And my grandson gives me strength in his strength to survive and thrive.

    I am a follower woot woot.

    I will post about this giveaway also...because it is truly a great one.

Oh, my heart is so full it will never zip shut...I've got blessing and joy that cannot be contained, and more angels that I can count. Including you. **blows kisses** Deb

  24. Hi Sweetie, okie dokie...you wanted to know about the Angels in our life. Well...I have to say that with my health I know that I have many. I know that my dear grandmother who passed away when I was a child is one, then my most precious mother who is passed now is also one.
    I also have all of my sons and daughter-n-laws that I consider my Angels and naturally my grandchildren. Gosh, there's my Church, doctors, nurses, care takers.
    Then there's my friends. I'm very blessed to have wonderful friends that I see as family and as my Angels. Then my Angels that are here in Blogland that pray for me, send me cards, healing thoughts, light candles, gifts...Gosh, there's so many that I know are my Angel's Marie, the list would be very huge!
    The way I see it, I've been blessed with so many Angels, wonderful family, fantastic friends that all are my Angels!
    Have a wonderful rest of your evening Sweetie!
    Hugs and much love to you...
    Bobbi

    ReplyDelete
  33. My words of wisdom are to love hard and feel.

    It's so simple, yet, forgotten.

    Sometimes people forget to feel. We get so consumed with schedules, phones, technology. We let life run us instead of running our life. Be the emotion, feel the emotion, and love the emotion.

    Love your people and you'll love your life.

    ReplyDelete

  43. Here are some words of wisdom
    Unless we take one step forward, we cannot take the next, much less a thousand.

    Courage is the force that creates history.

    We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young.

    Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.

    A loving heart is the truest wisdom.

    That is it for now.

    Have a great weekend
    Nicole/Beadwright

  47. Hi,

    I HAD to come over as a good friend, Nicole said so. She was right, your quite talented! Great Work.

    I guess the Romantic Torn and Worn pendant flying heart is my favorite.
    My thoughts for you are:

    Courage doesn't always roar.
    Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.”
    ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

    I guess your art pieces not only bring you close and let you open up inside, but also let you think about your wins and losses and how a LOSS is only a LOSS if you remember it.

    Thanks
    Pam

  60. words of wisdom:
    When not knowing where to start with a project or even with mounds of housework, lol...my grandma would say "Just start by starting!" When my claytable is cleaned up and I don't know what to do...I lay some clay blocks in front of me and start conditioning...

    ReplyDelete
  61. I almost forgot! My angel would be my daughter who has Autism. She is an adult child, that is she is physically 24, but mentally much younger. She brings happiness to the people around her as she is a gentle soul and is able to impress and convey to others what many are forgetting in this day and age when everyone is in such a 'hurry'. Many people have told me she's an Indigo, but I still don't know what that means except that she loves unconditionally. She has a great sense of humour that catches one off guard. She also is very helpful around the house. My husband and I are so blessed to have her and we often call her our Angel.

  69. You work is wonderful!

    My angel is my sister Michelle who was born with Downs Syndrome. She loved the 3 Stooges and would never miss an episode when it was time for the show. She would go "nyuk nyuk nyuk" imitating Curly when we would watch the show together. She was such a gentle and loving soul, and even though she was intellectually handicapped, she could always tell when something was bothering you and was ready with a smile and hug to make you feel better. She passed away in her mid twenties, living far beyond the age the doctors predicted. I miss her very much, but her presence is always with me.

  76. I believe the angel in my life is my Mum. We lost her to Cancer 3 years ago. I have seen so many signs that she is still here, watching over us and it brings great relief. My youngest daughter, who I was pregnant with when my Mum was taken, never got the chance to meet her Nan. She was due on my Mums birthday which would have been the 17th of September but she was 2 weeks late. My Mum passed away in the June. However when my daughter was a baby she would often be seen giggling and gurgling, talking in her baby speak to someone. If she was upset she would all of a sudden focus on apparantly nothing and start giggling away. She now has so many, SO many of my Mums mannerisms about her, more so even than my older two daughters who knew their Nan. I don't know - maybe it's nothing... but me? I personally believe she's still here, still watching over us and has, in her own way, met her grand-daughter.

  87. What a lovely give away, adore the pendant it is so pretty.
    I have a favorite quote that has helped me through a very sad period lately. Don't know if it is my own, or that someone else said it before me, but it is my fave:

    "Forget about yesterday, don't think about tomorrow, live today."

    I try to follow this, forget about my very sad past, don't think about my probable sad future, but live my (not so sad) life today. Enjoy the moment, seize the day so to speak.

We were told that our only daughter probably would never be able conceive, but, through a miracle she was able to adopt 2 babies and conceive 2 babies! We are now the proud grandparents of 4 grandchildren who are the loves of our lives! It was definately a wonderful Guardian Angel watching from above. I would be proud to wear your Angel on my chest!

  104. What an inspirational following you have- I loved reading all the great quotes. My favorite that I tell my teenaged boys is from Christopher Robin to Pooh--“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.”

  106. I took a peek at your Etsy site too and love all of the unzipped hearts but I also really liked the flower earrings with the skulls in the center- a dichotomy. Gotta love that!

  112. Ohhhh, wow. I heart that.

    Words of wisdom: I have someone worth fighting for, and he has given me a kind of strength that I'd never known I had. May everyone find someone that treats them with such loyalty, respect, trust, and love.

    In short, never settle.

  113. Ah, the angel in my life. He taught me that I deserved better, and how to stand on my own as well as with him. He is my angel because he teaches me so much, about the world, about myself, about he and I. I love him, and we're getting married soon. I couldn't be happier.

    :) I'm sure you don't remember me, but I took a class from you... 12 years ago? I went to it with my Aunt (Kathy Weaver). Thanks for all the inspiration! I've been coveting your unzipped hearts. They're very beautiful!

  117. Hello Marie,
    I'm quite new to your blog, but I like your pieces a lot!
    Your heart made me think of my two little angels = my two girls.
    Your heart together with time elements remembered me of the fact that our time on earth is given and that we have to make sure to enjoy every minute with our loved ones (something obvious which we forget all to often) and be kind to others as well, for you don't know what the next day will bring!
    Kind blessings,
    Ann S.
