I finished her up on Sunday, a low day for me. I felt emotionally depleted, and my default mode of communication with my family seemed to be shouting. So I added a little scene on the back of the covered stone, a reminder to keep myself firmly supported while reaching skyward.
The February Tree Matryoshka Stone will be listed for sale at the Haiti By Hand Etsy shop to support the relief and rebuilding efforts in Haiti. Rebecca continues to share her plans for how the seed money raised by Haiti by Hand will directly empower the women artisans of Despinos, Haiti--women like Jeannine, whose childhood love for embroidery resurfaced when given the proper supplies. Let's put even more materials into her hands, and those of the other women, so that they can create more works of art like this.
