Handmade by Artisans - Three for Thursday

 

 

 

Two weeks have come and gone . . . and here it is time again for another Three for Thursday blog post.  Three for Thursday posts feature three handmade items from three artists. If you look back at previous posts, you will see that the items chosen celebrate a wide variety of artistic skill.  That includes the artists you’ll find this week: eye catching manga and dog figurines by Sam of Shinrin Studio; colorful crocheted accessories and plushies by Michele of Starrfish Studio; and, fun dog themed beauties from Donna of SewAmazin (my dog, Seamus, has several of Donna's dog bandanas - he looks VERY handsome in them!).

The Number 3 for Good Fortune - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

 

From time immemorial, the number 3 has played an important part in everyday human life.  Three is considered the fundamental number, a synthesis of 1 and 2 representing the unity of heaven and earth.  Number 3 points to the intellectual and spiritual order, the divine qualities in the cosmos and in people. It is often viewed as a number of good fortune. In numerology, people with a number 3 personality are optimistic, creative curious, good-natured and helpful.  But they may also be naive and proud, with a tendency to exaggerate and give promises easily.

The Magical Number 7 - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

The theme for this week's Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade is "The Magical Number 7."  Throughout the history of mankind, the number 7 has been seen as a number with special magical and / or spiritual significance.  Here are some examples:

  • The number 7 is the number of perfection, security, safety and rest.
  • Used 735 times in the Bible (54 times in the book of Revelation alone), the number 7 is the foundation of God's word. 
  • Seven circles form the symbol called “The Seed of Life”:  six circles symbolize the six days of creation and the central circle symbolizes the day of rest.
  • The number 7 is the sacred spiritual number, “the energy of the mystics."
