Wednesday's Where's God?

Image
Sarah, A new blogger that I've just started following ( Whispers on the Journey ) commented on an old post: "I love this idea to review each week like this! I would say God was in... 1) my chance to connect with like-minded people at a conference. 2)A sense of rest and centeredness coming out of some vacation time. 3) The church service I randomly caught tonight with words I needed to hear 4) God's drawing out of me, faithfully teaching" Glad you like the idea! Although it doesn't seem to be original to me. Here's my list for this week. The usual Faber Pitt Pens .... and I got to play with some bronze ink, which looks more like old gold .... and so I used a pen nib to do lines and waves. The waves kind of remind me of the sound waves reproduced in the the St. John's Bible. Which is really worth a post all on it's own. Even if I did only see facsimiles and not the real deal (which is in Minnesota, I think.) There are changes afoot in th

This week on Wednesday's Where's God?

Here's my page for this week. Yeah, I'm writing sideways on the page. Remember last week's page ? Yep, that's her skirt, I folded it around the page 'cause I thought it'd be kinda fun! While I plan to continue doing these pages, I'm considering abandoning this little link party idea. I think those who read my blog are far too few in number and I really have not gone out of my way to promote this puppy around the blogosphere. Instead, I'll keep doing the pages, but I'll link them to Ann Voskamp's weekly post where she asks her readers to share their gifts from God. Am not sure it's quite the same thing that I'm doing, but what the hey. (I really need to read her book) I'm also thinking about writing more about an item or two on  the list instead of just having occasionally cryptic items. Thoughts? And, for possibly the last time, or the last time for right now, who knows what changes will come down the wind...

Wednesday's Where's God?

Image
I spent most of last week on retreat at a monastery (with to-die-for food!) and so this week's post reflects that. (The white clam sauce I made, the red clam sauce we had at Mt. Calvary was just as good!) It's a subpage, so it gets a bit crowded ... don't know if you can tell what the image is... Anyway, to spend almost an entire week focused on God instead of work, home, etc ... well, it was a real treat even if I don't include Luis' cooking! Where was God in your week? Comment below with your own list, link to your blog post about it, perhaps a photograph you took that illustrates it (a picture is worth a thousand words), or art illustrating your gratitude! (If I get enough folks participating, I'll start using a link party tool.) A couple of rules: 1. If you are linking, link to the specific post, not the main page of your blog. 2. Please, no links to online shops -- stay on topic! Feel fr

One last treasure from my trip home...

That I completely forgot to show you. A piano player roll! There was a whole stack of them, but  I had limited space in my luggage and I picked this one for it's decorative front page.... Isn't it stunning?

Petite Inspiration Box Swap - Curiosities Edition...

Well, boxes have been sent and received, so I thought I'd share the boxes I made. As I've been a negligent blogger lately, thought I'd show what I received in another post... The best part was that I shopped for these little boxes amongst my own supplies. Lace, buttons, ribbons, a vintage pocketwatch case, some funky paper clips and other things which I now forget and of course didn't take a picture of. I used pretty vintage wallpaper... Fancy Prima flowers, vintage/antique paper, vintage lace and some seam binding... They were fun and easy to make!

I'm looking forward to receiving my book! Here are the pages that I made:  As you can see, I used lots of identical images and put them together in different ways... I hope whoever gets my pages enjoys them!
