Parables are defined as “earthly stories with heavenly meanings.” In the Bible, Jesus frequently used parables as a way of illustrating divine truths as this form of illustration could be easily understood (to those who were not spiritually blind) and remembered. Simply put, the parables spoken by Jesus were a blessing to those who had willing ears.
Paper crafting is defined as the collection of art forms employing paper or card as the primary artistic medium for the creation of three-dimensional objects. Add to this medium various other elements such as ribbon, embellishments, inks and sentiments, and you begin to understand and appreciate why the paper crafting world is so large and varied!
Entwine these and you arrive at the vision for this blog! “Parables of a Crafter” was created as a means for artistic and written expressions to be married and used to reach, teach and touch others through art and word.
