Weekend Creativity

Hello friends.

I actually spent a little time cleaning the craft room a bit.  I have one corner done - only three more to go!  LOL!

I have been crafting away this weekend.  Doing several more Geometric Shapes pages for the **Art*Journal*Journey* theme, plus some cards.  I even made some yummy hot water cornbread.

This first page is the other part of Psalm 52 - the more positive words at the end about trusting in God's love.  With the world on fire right now, we definitely need to focus on God's faithful love.
Keeping with God's love and faithfulness, I also did Psalms 91. 
Here a few cards I made.

This one is an ode to my 401K.  I used part of an annual report and a fun old SU! Clock image. Those are tears (or raindrops) on the left.... hopefully the value will come back quickly when we get back to norm (whatever and whenever that will be).
This card was a case of Sharon Wisely who is the Featured Stamper on this weekend. Sharon is one of the owners of  Red Lead - what a cool store!  I cased her tag which you can find HERE.
And here is the hot water cornbread I made.  I added in some sausage and it is stuffed with cheese.  I got the recipe HERE.

  9. Great journal pages Nancy and fabulous cards, I really like the first card - a super variety of elements.
    Your cornbread looks and sounds yummy, lots of people seem to be baking at the moment, we can't get yeast anywhere - we always bake our own bread but if we can't get some soon we will have to resort to buying some!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
