My sister Maddie is a very talented artist in more ways then one. She has worked with about every medium now, but I remember back in the day when she would paint on scraps of wood. She is an amazing painter, cake decorator, sketcher, sculptor, musician, and overall creator. She constantly creates beauty! And I know she could make a career out of it is she chooses to do so.
It is tough to see in this picture, but underneath the crackled glass bottom it says our names and wedding date in the clay! You can kind of make out the 2013 right in the middle. That makes it even more personal and darling.
She actually made this gift in one of her advanced art classes in high school after Matt and I had gotten engaged and long before the wedding. She is good at keeping a secret I guess! If I would have created this beauty I would have been bragging about it to the world as soon as it was done!! She is a humble artist though, which makes her that much more lovable.
I absolutely adore these white flowers along the edge! She just knows me too well...
There are seven of them too! This is exciting to me because the number seven means perfect and complete (in Biblical meaning). So I really like the number seven. Also it represents the month of July when we were married.
These pretty flowers also came with the gift...she told me, "There are six, for the number of kids you two want to have." So sweet! :) But now Matt and I better stick to what we said! Lets hope I like motherhood...
They even have holes that go through there bases so I can string them if I want to! She thought of it all, that wonderful sister of mine.
Can you see why this is so precious to me? Such a beautiful, personal, one-of-a-kind gift. I love it so much, and I love my beautiful sister that created it!
