Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Christmas Ornaments

Hi there!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas Day! I enjoyed the slower pace from before Christmas! It was nice to have the four of us here together and catching up with all our family members on the phone that are far away.

These are a couple of ornaments I made for Christmas, but didn't have time to post.

These are slightly different from eachother, but pretty much the same. Here is a close up of one of them.

These are ornaments I bought at Michaels, just like the rectangle frame one with the Cardinal in it from a few days ago. I stamped and colored the candle images which are from JustRite, and cut out and placed in the frames. I replaced the ribbon it came with and added a button. Very easy to do, and makes a nice little gift!


Stamps: A Merrry Little Christmas Set (JustRite)
Paper: Solar White, Natural White (Neenah)
Ink: Black (VersaFine)
Accessories: Ornament frame (Michaels), Prismacolor Pencils, mineral spirits, and Diamond Stickles (Ranger).

Thanks for looking! I appreciate the comments you leave me, it's so nice to have feedback on your work! Blessings!
