How did things get so mixed up about Easter? Some of us are having our celebrations this weekend and there are some not doing it until next weekend. Since it relates to Passover which I think starts tonight shouldn’t that be the given time. After all….it was at Passover everything we as Christians keep in our heart to remember the grace of our Lord.,
Eggs don’t roll here like they did when the kids were little. There will be church services,family meals and of course the Bunny will leave more candy. Good excuse to grab a chocolate egg which none of us need. I did come up with several card designs for family members and one for a dear friend having health problems but don’t think I made a picture of that one. Let’s see…now where are those photos?
Don’t laugh…it did take me a few minutes to find them. Most will be hand delivered . As much fun as I am having doing these flowers by Susan’s Garden they are crazy to mail. I have another batch ready to go to Treelady. Anyone in Central Mississippi really should visit her and see all of the beautiful plants. It is a very relaxing place to visit and you can grab a hand-made paper crafted flower too.
Until next time….Have a blessed Easter Weekend…Remember it isn’t about the Bunny and sing praises for it is the Lords day. REJOICE for He Lives!
My cousin sent me the direction from a magazine and of course I had to give it a go. The Hero Arts Kit used on an earlier card was perfect for this idea. After careful consideration me,myself and I decided to send it to Little Cob. He is the grandson of our own Cobweb and accustom to the crazyness of a crafting grandma.( not that Cob is crazy but I sure fit the mold at times) The tunnel is made up of 4 circles that decrease in size and all of the little pieces were mostly fussy cut. The larger pieces are die cut which helps a lot. The report is that he enjoyed it and that blesses my heart.
the top of the circle says…Way up North there is a small village where it is Christmas all year long. or something to that effect. A few brain cell have slipped making all of this Christmas stuff. I also send Mr and Mrs. Cob a very simple card. Sending Love this Christmas was just perfect for someone so special.
These are in my Mothers yard. See…you never know where they will come up
A whilw back my grandson came through and ask..”Bebe..What is that?” He was looking up..on top of the hall book case and saw this.
You may be wondering too. This is a piece my sister did while in art school at Mississippi Southern.(Univ.Southern Mississippi today) She called it “a habitat for small animals”. You know how animls find what they need to establish a safe home for themselves and their young. Here is a closer look.
Can’t you just see a momma rabbit and her young finding this a safe place? Becky was the real artist in our family. She was studying art education and because of her health challenges was in need of open heart surgery before going into practice teaching. The doctors in Houston, while world renowned, were not able to give her her wish. She was only 23 years old when she left us and it left a hole on our family. These holes get patched but never filled. Today she would have been 70 years old…Is hard to imagine. Here are a couple more of her works.
The month of Feb. was full. First there was the On line Watercolor Class for Card Makers…Intermediate Techniques. Really good information and good examples of the teaching principals. Then there was the Gratitude 52sketchbook project by Jennifer Frith that confirms up to this point why I don’t scrapbook. It has been enlightening and thought provoking just not my thing. Only proud of a couple of pages so far. Maybe it ,or, I will get better as we go. Next was Sandy Allnock’s Paintalong. Now I know I really need better supplies. Boy…my wish list at Simon Says and Ellen Hutson ( or is it Hudson) is growing. Now it’s time for the Butterfly drop.
What is the butterfly drop? Awhile back Dina Kowal was ask to paint a butterfly for the Butterflyeffectbethechange organization. Of course her butterfly was beautiful as is all of her artistic creations. I thought…why not give it a try… so after getting in touch they sent me a blank wooden butterfly to paint, hide and let someone find (hopefully) and then have $250. donated to the charity of their choice. Next weekend is the drop. More information will be in the local newspaper on March 10 and the drop will be on March 12. I will post early clues on this blog on that day. Here is a picture of my creation. Good luck to all who go for it and please let me know who you are.
Now…remember…This is the day the Lord made…rejoice and be glad.
