Purse-Onality "Jaynas Wings"

This Purse will be on display for the Purse-onality art exhibition held in White Rock, British Columbia. From March 6th until the 29th at the Community Arts Council in Windsor Square 90# – 1959 -152nd St., South Surrey. The Opening Reception is March 6 from 7 - 9 pm. The Thirtieth of March will mark my second year anniversary blogging. The purple heart on this purse represent the brave parents who face the death of a child.In particular my dear friends Andrew and Selina who are still in the throws of grief having lost their ten month old daughter Jayna nine months ago, while continuing to search for a specific diagnoses for their severally disabled four year old who has an unnamed genetic affliction. "Jaynas Wings" on the opposite side of the purse represent all children having sadly passed leaving behind devastated families.Accompanied with this purse is the poem about Jayna titled " Did he Call." You may remember this this purse which was altered, it too will be entered in the show, along with my poem " Face it." About facing grief and aging, by replacing it with wisdom, love and creativity.
My Artist friend Violette's helped to facilitate this project and also has an entry in the " Purse-onlity exhibition," you can check out her colorful purse and blog here!

All these purses are just great! But I think the one in memory of Jayna is the best....much love is expressed there.

Hey, Sherrie! Love the purses! How are you all doing? We have Joey staying with us right now, but we are taking him to Midland TX to pick up a car, then he will go to work next week and get an apartment. We are trying to finish this novel, and having him in the house messes with our concentration. Give the kids our love!
