Bird Watching and My Secret Sister

in my backyard. zoomed in trying to capture all the different species.
the beautiful sound of cooing from the dove. she has such gentle, sweet eyes.

I created this journal page from the mail package goodies - stamps, prayer, masking tape and a card she stamped with scripture. it came at such a great time - when I was very sick last week.  thank you HKC Secret Sis.

Tree of Life

today i took a beading class at the BeadTender called the Tree Of Life. my teacher, diane from Surry, was wonderful. she really explained in detail how to create it. iplanned on using small beads but then when i started experimenting with the chunky green beads i could not put them down.
i plan on making more of these
i played around with the roots and bent them so they don't look like this now.

today I took my first soldering class. oh my, at least i purchased a beautiful FLOW magazine from Holland and used two pics from it. fell in love with the two girls and their goose. celebrating friendship. at the bottom i placed two dragonflies.
this is one project i won't be investing in any time soon. no soldering gun, flux or other doodahs.  but i am glad i took the class.
