Happy Birthday, Hagar!

Hagar Arnon Elbaz

Hagar has been one of our most enthusiastic TAFA Team supporters, contributing articles for this blog and creating beautiful treasuries for us on Etsy.  Today is her birthday and we wish her all the love and joy a day can bring.  Hagar makes beautiful jewelry out of recycled fabrics, many of them from men's neckties.  She lives in Israel and I am sending these good wishes from Kentucky, USA.  Our TAFA Team is one example of how physical distance may separate us, we can use technology and common interests to bring unity in our little world.  
Hagar exemplifies a quote of Rilke's: 

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love: the more they give, the more they possess. 
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Visit Hagar's Etsy shop and purchase one of her beautiful pieces.  What better birthday present could there be than to have one's work acknowledged?  I'm sure that a bunch of sales would make Hagar's day even more special!

  4. WOW!!! Thank you so much Rachel for your very kind words and all of you for your greetings! I am really thrilled! I love this feeling of distances that in a way no longer exist and friendships that become possible with people thousands of kilometers away. There is something so exiting about it. I keep discovering friendships and generosity, sharing of knowledge and common projects that make me keep dreaming and creating. I do hope it is going to be a great year!
    Love you all!
