Last Summer I signed up for one of many many Silver Bella Swaps: The Miraculous Mary Montage Swap hosted by ever sweet Gina Grable. I've kept the 13 pieces wrapped since they were given to me back in mid November...waiting for the perfect time to appreciate them.
Recently, the time was right, and I took a few quiet moments to unwrap these beautiful pieces of art from Silver Bella. Seeing her face bring such a sense of calmness, hope and love.
If you are a blog hopper, you may have already seen these, but I thought that today would be a great day to show them to you (so just relive it)!
Looking at all the images of The Blessed Virgin Mary take my breath away. Of course, they all look so much better in person, but it's not stopping me from sharing them here! We were to use one of our favorite images of Mary and embellish it. I love seeing everyone's creations.

I'm going to make a banner with them and put them in my studio. Gaaa!!! Thanks Gina for hostessing this meaningful swap!
I hope these
Miraculous Mary creations
fill you with
joy and peace this new year!
