I'm late for the tea party over at Altered Book Lover, and almost didn't join them this week. Time got away from me and I didn't start my post as early as I usually do, but as I went to refresh my coffee I grabbed my camera and took a drink photo, came back to my craft space .......and well, here I am.
Yesterday I started not one, but two paintings for my GD Hannah. She had picked these two off Pinterest.....she is in the process of changing her room into more of a beach type decor, you can see the print outs of what they should look like when I'm finished. That is as far as I got before the tile contractor came to give me a bid on the flooring of our...yet to be built house. Since he just lives down the street, he dropped by on his way to work. Then Hubby came home and we went to see a general contractor to get a bid from him. I sure hope he isn't outrageous on his quote, we both really liked him and he has built with ICF blocks before.............but we aren't made of money, even though we have been saving for a long time. But I have faith, and can't fret over these things, It will either happen or it won't.
The drawing of the crown of thorns I did while watching TV with Hubby last night. I drew, and shaded it with pencil first, then went over it with Inktense watercolor pencil and a damp brush. Easter has been on my mind......I know it's early, but it will be here in no time!!
While waiting for the paintings to dry (the sky parts) I was fooling around and made a logo for our Paint Pal group........still some finishing touches to do, then I'll scan it, and add Paint Pals words with Print Shop. If the girls like it, I'll make it into a transfer for some shirts.
Three daily things......my journal/diary, my planner, and my Journal Bible. I try to attend to all three of these early, every morning. I just started with a planner, since I completely forgot to meet with friends for lunch one day, and now all these appointments with contractors.......sheeesh! I'm getting to the point that if I don't write it down, I'd forget to brush my teeth....LOL!!!
I just discovered Bible Journaling.......by way of Pinetrest. It has been around for a number of years, and began in the UK, as is my understanding. It makes for great devotional time and I get to mix all kinds of art with it.........what more could one ask for??? If anyone is interested in learning more about this let me know and I'll send you some links.
That's about it from here, my cup has just been re-filled, again......these large mugs are great but the coffee is cold about half way through, so I just keep adding hot to it. Laundry is started, Hubby is not working this morning, so it feels like Saturday instead of Tuesday.
Tomorrow I'm meeting the Paint Pals for lunch and a movie. We have one theater that has a seniors day and only costs $4.00 (US) to get in and the lunch spot has a $5.00 (US) lunch special. I HOPE to remember to take some photos. We are going to see Beauty and the Beast and see what the hullabaloo is all about, before we take any of our grandchildren to see it. Two weeks ago we went to see The Shack, and were amazed that there was so much controversy, but some churches, about it. We ALL LOVED it!! A couple of us had read the book years ago.
Then Thursday the Paint Pals will be here........so it is stacking up to be a busy week.
Have a great week!!!
