This week’s MotD theme: Tis the Season for Strawberries
These delightful strawberry guys, along with the directions, come from Cara, of Fork and Beans, who is all about “making allergen friendly food fun for the whole family.” She even shows us how to make the mandala-like googly eyes!
About her blog site she states:
My hope in starting this blog was to create a site where people with dietary restrictions will not only feel normal, but find that eating without certain ingredients can still be good.
Why strawberries (a delightful summer fruit) as the focus for a winter season theme? Well I originally chose “goodies” as the theme to cover all types of holiday treats. While searching the interweb, I found a ton of potential MotD images with strawberries being used in many fun and different ways. So much so, that I felt compelled to showcase them all week instead of just one day. Enjoy!
Inspiration for Today
From her about page, Cara talks about wanting to help people feel normal when it comes to food. Thankfully, her Santa fruit pops are anything but normal…they are delightfully goofy!
Today’s MotD encourages us to embrace what is “normal” for us by being true to ourselves.
“Normal is an illusion.
What’s normal for a spider is chaos for a fly.” – Morticia Adams

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
