Inspired to make a devotional picture of Our Lady of Walsingham in watercolour and gold leaf
Attending the Called and Gifted process was very energising and brought a way of seeing various elements of my life as part of one specific charism.
I've always been involved in many different creative activities, for example in art design especially painting, in being a homemaker, organising crafts for children's groups, also as a church flower arranger, and in making church vestments. The Called and Gifted process enabled me to view these different activities as facets of the charism of Craftsmanship. This creativity has been very fulfilling and has generally been done for others.
