This is not what I had in mind when I first envisioned this piece.  
I wasn't going to include Alice in my shrine, but yesterday I started reading it and realized how much her story has to do with the story of 2012.  
The tree is a hand it is a reminder that in order to stay grounded I need to use all five of my senses.
Also that creativity is in the doing not just thinking about it.
Also controlling what goes in the eye gate is important.

I would like to mention one of my favorite quilt artist, Kathy Nida.
She inspired me in my quest to make this Celebration Shrine.


  1. I love your inside shrine and the reason for your choices. It is such a wonderful idea to do this art, a picture is worth a thousand words.

    Good job.

    Wishing you a New Happy Year.

  2. I like it. - I think you have a really individual style xxx

  3. Glad to have inspired you :-) the purple hand and the giant eyeball. Think I have that purple fabric somewhere...
