Peace on Earth....



I can't believe it's the last day of school today and the kiddies will be home for the holidays. But that also means it's my last free day to craft before I clear off my table before my company arrives. I think I may even let the kids open a gift tonight. It's too much for them all at once so I like to start a bit early and let them enjoy them. This was my first time using this gorgeous Tilda and I love her. She is stunning isn't she? I used these beautiful teals which were inspired by Bev Rochester, she always seems to make gorgeous creations using these colours and I've paired it with rich red roses. Tilda is coloured with copics.

A Holiday Thought...

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
