* Shrines, Nichos, Alters and Dream Boxes

The theme for February at ALTER IT MONTHLY  is Shrines, Nichos, Alters and Dream Boxes.  You may view my MoonBeam Babies and many other entries there. This month the entries are sponsored by ARTchix Studios,  one of my favorite and most fabulous places to shop for all things ArtFull! (Be patient ... this is the first day entries are being received.  It may take a little while for them to be posted)

My MoonBeam Babies are finally complete.  It's been a great project, trying to figure out what 'they really wanted'.

The housing project and redecoration proceeded with the Babies directing the entire procedure. See their lives evolve and read their history at "Babies Homeless"Bossy Babies"Bought a New House"and Here at 'Moonbeam Manor'.

They are content and happy now in their new digs.  Comforted by the knowledge that they are loved and cared for, they are much like us .... the 'earth people' as they refer to me.  ;o)

 I thought this Irish Blessing might be appropriate for this post.

"May God grant you always ... A sunbeam to warm you, a MOONBEAM to charm you, a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.  Laughter to cheer you.  Faithful friends near you.  And whenever you need to, Heaven to hear you."
