Color - Texture - Beauty

St Maarten French side, market, lots of herbs/spices.
just as we were passing on the outskirts of the market crossing the street hubby fell on the uneven cobblestone. bruised both wrists/palms and his knee that had surgery. thank God nothing more other than a little bruising of the ego too.
Butterfly farm visit, loved carved wooden mask and metal butterfly sculpture.
ring them bells, let the bells toll Ye Ole' sounds. Philisburg

Norwegian ship coming into port. there were four ships in at one time.

HKC-TMD Feb. Wk 1 journal page - an inky experiment turned into a shattered heart. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes on Him should not perish but have eternal life.

I love listening to the birds early morning in my backyard.  they bring me such joy. Thank you God for all your creations.

i am grateful for DIL - bless her Lord for gifting me these 9 days of sunshine
i am grateful it is raining today
i am grateful i am up and out of bed able to do somethings
i am grateful hubby calls to check on me every day
i am grateful i have three wonderful sons
i am grateful God is never changing
i am grateful Jesus loved me more than i could ever express
i am grateful i can ask for wisdom from the Lord and He gives it.

Kingly Boys

my fabric journal page for HKC-TMD4 - Purposefully using 2 hearts, embroidery floss, paper puzzle piece, and a patch work square.

the king's crown and bubbles were added using underpaper. my original idea just would not come together.
sheer joy to add to my painting hanging on my art studio wall - DLP Challenge to use underpaper from my table.
here is the original plan in my Dylusions journal.  it will have to be finished at a later date. and who says every challenge has to stay in my journal. the lighting bug catcher now feels complete.
