The Chippewa believe that night is full of both good and bad dreams. When a dream catcher is hung above the place where you sleep it moves freely in the night air and catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, knowing their way, pass through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams, not knowing the way, are caught in the webbing and destroyed at the first light of the morning sun.
Other legends believe the good dreams are caught by the feathers and drop down on the person sleeping below, either way what a beautiful tradition passed on by the natives of our country.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a dream, I’m not much of a sleeper these days but I find the thought of them so romantic and the beauty of the delicate dream catcher a dream itself.
I’m not sure if you can tell that I used Sparkle Glimmer paper for the word “dream” and popped it up with Foam Adhesive Strips.
