So I sat down tonight for a little downtime- decided to make a minimal black and white Christmas wreath out of newspaper strips from this past year. I went through paper after paper trying to find lighthearted or uplifting articles- seeing as it’s a holiday wreath and all… but by and large there were none. Headline after headline was violence, fear, terror, suffering… and it really hit home were we sit as we close out 2017. My first thought was to stop- I didn’t want a wreath wrapped in something showcasing only the ugliness of humanity… but the more I thought about it, the more I thought maybe creating something beautiful out of all of these stories might be a way to honour those who have suffered, and as a sign of hope that 2018 will be a happier, better place… Wow, that got unexpectedly deep for arts & crafts time…
