(cheerful note)

What a sweet surprise I found in my post box today!
My blogging friend, Shanda, sent me the card and a delicate string of hearts.
It warmed my heart.
Thank you, dear.

(more added passages)

This one is more wrinkly because there is another glued to the back. 

This was a redo. I originally had taped a shipping tag to the edge. It was too heavy and would catch when opening and closing the bible. So....I carefully cut it off and added more washi tape and the words with Versamark.


I am battling a cold.
Guess it was my turn.

Laying low and keeping warm,

(little house bookmark)

What to do when a friend orders a bookmark for her friend.
The only clues to work with were bold colors and the word, precious.
For me, those two things together were a challenge.
Precious would bring to my mind ivory, vintage, pastels.
Went to work on it.
Came up with this.
My friend liked it very much.
Bold and precious.
Who knew?

Another year, another journal.

I just added my word of the year to the back of the journal.


"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusted in thee."
~Isaiah 26:3

Happy New Year!

(all 12 tags)

I finished the 12 Tags of Christmas project earlier this week.
They go on a ring and will be placed in a box with other similar projects. 
I had fun with it.


How was your Christmas?
We enjoyed our day with family.
I hope to post some photos later next week.
My granddaughter took the pictures and she will be sending them along to me. 


The hubs and I did a little after Christmas shopping today.
It was busy out there.
We are planning to lower our ceiling in the living room this year. 
Our tree will be too tall for the room next Christmas.
So...we went shopping for a shorter tree.
We found one for a very good price.
We also bought all of our wrapping paper as well.
Love that.


The house will be empty again tomorrow.
Everyone heads back home.
The week flew by.


See you later.

(12 tags project)

I am participating in a mixed media project called
12 Tags of Christmas.
Rae Missigman is giving directions each day at her blog.
Here are the ones I have completed so far.
They are only 3x4 inches in size, so they do not take long to make.
I am using up bits from the stash.
A fun process!

Another recent passage in my Journaling Bible.
Inspired by Joanne Sharpe.

A friend recently made this for me.
It holds four tea bags. 
Lovely paper.
Yummy tea.


Thanks, Sondra!
Love it.
