Juggling Life’s Challenges: Work, Family, Self

Three major parts of life, work is the smallest since we always seems to find a way to do work.  Family in the middle, center of what is important and where it needs to be.  Self is the biggest, since we always need to work the hardest to take care of ourselves.  The frames have hidden hearts – symbolizing the love that surrounds us during all levels of life and its challenges.  The backgrounds are hand drawn and painted.  Big Jester made from a pattern from “Teach Yourself Cloth Dollmaking” by Jodie Davis
