Branch Slice Ornaments

I just wanted to share the start of my Christmas ornaments for this year. My husband cut slices of branches for me and I dried them in the oven for about and hour at 225F and then let them cool in the oven until they were completely cool which to about 3 hours. 


Then I sketched a little tree design on then and began to fill them with paint. 



I added shading and ornaments to round out the design.

A little update.

I just want to give you a little update on why I have been post few and far between.
 A couple of months ago my daughter started having bad headaches that would last for days. So we have been trying to find out what is causing them and how to get her better. We have been to the doctor and to the hospital twice with an admittance at the beginning of the week.

She has missed 3 weeks of school this because of it and they still have no cause for the headaches. I just wanted to share this and ask that you keep her in your prayers. The pictures that are in this post are a few of the displays at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.  

A Travelers Notebook


I am trying to make a few new items for my etsy shop and this is a sample of on of the new products that I have created. I am looking for a little feedback as to if this is something that would interest you.

Camping in the mountains part 1

A few days ago went went for a four day camping trip to the North Georgia mountains. I just want to share a peek at all of the beauty that we experienced.   
This was the view I had when I stepped out of my tent each morning. And I was able to go to sleep to the sound of the creek bubbling over the dam. 


We built our fireplace here and it really made for a great place to sit and stay warm. 



I love that our campsite had these large string of lights above it. It made for a beautiful scene and we could stay up past sundown and still be able to do the things that we wanted. 

Here is the scene that we were surrounded by while we were there. 

On Saturday morning we woke up to this and decide it would be a great day to load up in the truck and head to Cherokee, NC. 

I will share this part of our trip tomorrow so come back and check it out.

MyJournal Bible


I received the hardback ESV Journaling Bible for my birthday last week and I wanted to share what I have done with it so far.

First I added the tabs into the Bible. This took about two hours to complete, but I think it was well worth the time. It makes it so much easier to find the book that I am looking for. 


Here is my first entry. I used sermon notes that I had taken the Sunday before. 

Yesterday I decided to make a cover for it. I used a piece of painted canvas for the cover. This piece of canvas was originally a canvas promo bag that I was given and I had planned on using it as a tote but the gesso made it too stiff so I thought it would be a good use for the cover. I used Decoart Multi-Surface Satin Paint to paint the canvas. 

Here is a close up of the detail on the cover. I think I may go back in with some Sharpies and add some words of affirmation and some doodles. 

Here it is with the cover and the tabs. I really like how the tabs seem to match the colors of the cover. 

Here is another entry that I finished using sermon notes for Mark 5: 24-34

This one is for John 13: 30

I hope you enjoy these. I will be sharing my pages here once a week.
