On the 10th Day of Christmas Lorraine Bell inspired me!
Lorraine as you may have read on Rae's Day 9 Post was a teacher at our last Handmade U. I met Lorraine years ago at Brave Girl Camp. From our interaction I knew that Lorraine was a gentle soul full of generous spirit. I followed her and her art through social media since then and was so excited for her and her team of friends at Art to the 5th with their work on the Documented Life Project. I wanted to have them all come to do Art in the Barn with me, but with limited space it just didn't make sense which is why just Lorraine and Rae came to teach. The Duo made teaching together look effortless. They make a great pair!
If you know Lorraine you know she has had a sudden loss in her family. The bravery and courage that she needs now is nothing but inspirational. The overwhelming support from friends, family, and her community not only shows their compassion, but certainly reflects so highly on the kind of person Lorraine is, for people are giving back what she most definitely has given time and time again.
