I’m starting up the Friday Five posts where I talk about 5 things that make me happy, or I’m obsessed with, or new finds that make me smile. So here’s today’s Friday Five:
I’ve been seeing this all over Instagram and had to have the tools to make this happen. Seriously, it is the easiest, coolest thing ever. I purchased the Ranger Embossing Pen, Ranger Embossing Power, and a heat tool. Write something, sprinkle powder on, remove excess powder, then use the heat tool to heat your writing and BOOM!…you have a beautiful piece of lettering. I’m obsessed.
I’ve given myself a challenge for the rest of the year to read one non-fiction book and one fiction Audacious by Beth Moore. It is so good and so inspiring. I will do a book review when I’m finished. Here are some books that I purchased from Christianbook.com when they were having a 90% off sale. I don’t think I paid more than $2 for any books I bought. SCORE!!!!
book a month. I’ve gotten into a bad habit of watching Netfix ALL. THE. TIME. and I am going to start a new habit. Right now I am reading
I really love journaling in my Bible and making the Word of God come alive with color. It truly helps me meditate on scripture and facilitates memorization. Well, I would like to say that I have all my journaled verses memorized, but alas…I am 50 and things don’t stick like they used to.
I have been working on my garden some this year. My hope is that one day it will be an explosion of color, but right now, it is just a smattering of color.
I bought a HUGE canvas on clearance a few months ago and I want to do something abstract with it, so I’ve been perusing the abstract art on Pinterest. Oh my goodness…such beauty! I know mine will never look like the stuff I’ve been seeing, but wow…such inspiration. Click on the links below the pictures to see more of these artists impressive work.
