This week’s challenge at Gothic Arches is :::Hands:::.

What do you think of when creating something with the :::Hands::: theme?
Small children and their hands? hands praying? holding hands? whatever it may be…we would love to see your gothic arch creations here.

Our hostess this week is Hermine Koster who has created this beautiful arch with the sweet little children. You may visit Hermine’s blog:

A bit about this week’s hostess…
I live in The Netherlands. I am married for 17 years now and we have a beautiful son, who is our pride and joy. I have been creating all my life, even when I was little I always have been busy. And what I like the most is that this hobby connects people from all over the world. It is a treat to watch all that gorgeous artwork and meet so many sweet people.

Ik woon in Nederland. Ik ben inmiddels alweer 17 jaar getrouwd en we hebben een prachtige zoon, onze trots. I ben al mijn hele leven creatief bezig, zelfs toen ik nog heel klein was, was ik al bezig met dingen te maken. Maar waar ik het meeste van hou is dat deze hobby mensen van over de hele wereld met elkaar verbindt. Het is altijd zo fantastisch om al die prachtige kunstwerken te bekijken en zoveel aardige mensen te ontmoeten.

    I used a french song :
    “Take a child by the hand.
    To take him towards tomorrow.
    To give him the confidence(trust) in its step.
    Take a child for king”
