Happy Passover, Happy Easter!!!!

I spent Saturday creating (2 ART Postcards) The most fun is taking them to the post office and listening to the postal worker go on and on about how cool they are!; and a traveling art book page (shown here) for Bab's of Girlfriends Traveling Sketchbook! This page completes Bab's book!!!! What a fun adventure this has been. This page is made from tissue paper, glossy papers, magazine cut out; $ dollar store stick on gems; fabric bag and scraps; machine sewing; and beads.
This is my favorite Passover picture. I've posted it before. It's a photo we found at a flea market years ago, and it hangs in my kitchen today. I always wonder if the kids are in Israel or New York or some other country? The girls are eating matzo, unleavened bread, representing the Jews fleeing the slavery in Egypt in the desert, not having time to allow their bread to rise. Let my People Go! The holiday sort of passed me by this year, as my daughter is spending it in FL with her in laws...we did not go to local family this year...or synagogue. But I have warm memories of last year at my cousin's and many many many wonderful memories of family gatherings in years past. Wishing all who celebrate in the Jewish tradition a Chag Semach. (Happy Holiday) And if Easter is your holiday I send you warm wishes on this special day for you and your loved ones as well.
Happy Easter, Passover, and Spring!
