Sometimes I paint. I have a wide variety of arts and crafts I do. Growing up, mom taught me to embroider and sew. Later in life I taught myself to do counted cross-stitch, needlepoint and quilt. Much later in life I began scrapbooking, art journaling, and painting. I’ve actually sold a few paintings, although I still consider myself very much an amateur. But, it’s something I enjoy doing.
I just finished this one for a local art show. Not one of my favorite pieces, yet I like it.
This piece will be on display next week, February 21-28, 2016. And, it is for sale :).
Stay tuned for more views into my art, book reviews, and random ramblings!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blogpost. So much so that I forgot where it was! But the reason I started this blog originally was to record my thoughts as I do a daily Bible study starting in 2016. That’s tomorrow. Therefore, this blog will be more current – hopefully, daily.
This has been a good year. I finished reading the Bible through in chronological order. Don’t know that I’ll do that again. I’ll read – just not chronologically.
I read 47 books according to Goodreads – my goal was to read 30. My goal for 2016 is to read 60.
In 2016 I want to sew more. I want to make a table runner for Christmas, fall, and spring…and maybe more. I want to make curtains for our house.
I want to do more art. And, I want to make bread – a lot of bread.
And I want to love more – everybody. But, more than that, I want everyone to know Jesus and that you would see Jesus in me.
That is my prayer. Lord, help me to not let YOU down.
