Ok, so I have taken some much needed time out from my blog and my arts/crafts to spend some much needed spiritual time w/ God, a vacation w/my family and some great friends to our favorite place at the beach, and a trip to the mountains to my mom's place there, with my mom and sister. Here and there, under no pressure, as it should be, I have created a few projects though that I will share, a couple of which were shared with me, and one my own custom design. As for my spiritual time out, I have SO enjoyed my time alone w/God, He has blessed me in SO many ways ...family, friends, health, church family, the things I see, hear and feel everyday of my life that are so frequently taken for granted and so often go unnoticed. Along with my Bible and my devotional "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young, I have also read a couple of books by Francine Rivers, "Redeeming Love" and "Unshaken". Also, "Having a Mary Heart In A Martha World" by Joanna Weaver. The latter three books were referred to me by( a friend to me and relative of my husband), Karon, who has been a real inspiration to me. I encourage any and every one to read these books, they are wonderful....not forgetting to mention a previously read "The Purpose-Driven Life" a "must-read". I keep buying extra copies and have been handing them out. As for the projects I have been working on... the bracelet is a "spoon bracelet" ( I saw while in the mountains with my mom and sis) and just had to make one (customed designed it though)... a necklace I created out of the Tim Holtz fragment pieces and some jewels, charms, beads, and some circle-punched, embossed , aluminum soda cans. Also, a "record bowl" of which I saw on you-tube.
