i started out answering questions to one of the prompts i receive. then i purchased three small stamps and used them.  love the birds - esp. humming bird. huge scrapbooking typography. glitter glue. yarn, found fragrance tag, doodling and recycled a postcard i received in 2008 of a rose.  i wanted to be able to enjoy the rose daily instead of having it stashed away.  now i can open my journal and look at it often.  wonderful!

i have a clean slate in my email box - all deleted "inbox, sent and trash bin". yippee!!  a CLEAN SLATE!
jumping up and down, doing the happy dance.

Early to Rise

i arose early this morning while the dew was still on the ground and began at 2:11 to read the Word Of God.  What an amazing book! alive, breathing truth into every part of my being. and then i turned on a song i love listening to; one my son put music too for a friend's love song called "LIFELINE".  i wept and then wept more.

Here is my first FAT trade for the new year.  one lone little button fairy. i'm happy with her and all her unusual fabrics making up her wings.

a break-in

today has been an interesting day. our neighbors, son and DIL's home was broken into. oh the things you have to go through to work through this - police investigation, realizing all the things stolen, someone has breached your security of homelife, changing/closing all accts, repairing the door and securing it quickly, and then there's the let down - realizing someone has gone through all your personal belongings and thrown them everywhere.

But the greatest blessing - they were not home and are safe. i am grateful for God's protection!

Sheers 2 U

here is another remix of my art for Strathmore Visual Journal Workshop1.
i am already loving this class - working in black and white.
this from two remixed art journal pages.
Reading Thru BIBLE
i committed myself to reading through the Bible again this year. can you imagine God became so saddened by his creation of mankind that He destroyed most through a flood bc of all the violence and imagination of man? sounds like today, nothing has changed. But for me personally what has changed is my love more and more for Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate sacrifice for mankind to have eternal life. i once was blind but now i see and see clearly. how about you?
