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!

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

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
