"Love Squared"

"Her name is "Love Squared."
She wears 180 two inch art squares.
She is just under 40" tall
and weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
She smiles because already she knows love
and is able to give love unconditionally.
To many, she is a symbol of hope.
She stands for COURAGE and was built
by a community of givers."

This is the beautiful 'Pink Artist Doll' project for charity.

Artists from all over the blogland community sent in 2"x 2" decorated squares.

Do you realize how small a 2" square is?

Her skirt is covered with them.

Here you can see my yellow rose dedicated to Susie, my BFF that is now receiving art lessons from the "Ultimate Creator".

And here you can see Dave, my hubbies duck "Gilbert".

(Dave names everything)

Each of these squares, are squares of hope, love and courage.

I could not have been more honored than to participate in a project like this.

Her dignity is evident...she is elegant...and she is a woman!

Thank you Monica for coordinating this amazing project and allowing us to be part of it!

Now everyone else, tell your friends

and check out all the photos on Girl Gone Thread Wild.

"Love Squared" is going to be available for auction and proceeds are to benefit the Susan G Komen foundation for breast cancer awareness.

What a labor of love. When the purpose to create is driven by giving the results are always so excellent. Your yellow rose is lovely and your husband's Gilbert is so adorable. She is magnificent, and I will add the link of "Love Squared" in a post.

I always loved to see your gorgeous blog and read about the wonderful things you and your husband create. After reading your comments on my post yesterday, I feel even more drawn to your blog. Thank you. Have a lovely weekend

Blessings, Karen

Terisa, I know that God orchestrated this entire project from beginning to end. Imagine, 182 artists coming together to build this ONE doll and He built the world alone. amazing. :)

Thank you for contributing greatly to this project, we definitely could not have pulled this off without YOU and that famous dh of yours. Picture the doll with just my lil ol square, heh...would look kinda funny. ;)

You ever need a 2" square made, you two know where to find me, I'll come a runnin'.

Have a super God-filled day my friend. love & blessings, Monica :):):)

I suppose this is the point in my life when I concede and say, "uncle".

Thank was pretty frickin' cool!

I want to touch it- I think that feeling is deffinately environmental not genetic.

Oh my, simply stunning.
The minis from each participant are beautiful on their own and only become better as part of the collective work.

Followed your link off the mermaid swap, and enjoyed peekinging into all your creactive projects.
