Hello Friends,

I decided to take a couple of weeks off from my writing in order to make Christmas gifts. But before that....

Hi there
Stop typing and pet me
Look at the cuteness. Focus on the cuteness. I'm getting cuter... cuter....cuter
You know I'm here, right?
Okay. Desperate times call for ....
desperate measures.
And that's what I call writer's block.

Have a great day.

Hugs & smiles,

The Lamb Who is a Lion

Hi Friends,

"Whew," she said, wiping the sweat from her brow. "I have just spent the past two days making seven mixed media canvasses and five of them were done today."

Yep. That's what I've been doing, but I can't show you most of them yet just in case some little elves are watching. Instead I will share an art journal page I finished over a week ago.

This is an intuitive oil pastel drawing/painting I started in a worship service.
As you can imagine, I am pretty tired, but very thankful that I am able to give meaningful gifts that I have made with my hands. Thank you so much for stopping by to pay me a visit. Many of you leave such lovely comments and I am delighted by each and every one. God bless your dear, sweet hearts.

Hugs & smiles,

Free Christmas Sentiment

Hi Friends,

I haven't posted in more than a week so I thought I'd drop by to let you know I haven't dropped off of the planet. I have been busy making Christmas presents. I can't post anything I have done until after Christmas, but I did want to give a little something to my followers.

This is a new sentiment that I just created tonight. Enjoy.

Hugs & smiles,

Guest Designing at The Outlawz

Hello Friends,

I have the privilege of guest designing at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge this week. TT is always Anything Goes, but if you add their optional twist you can enter twice. This week's twist is "Anything Goes" and our sponsor is Anne Fenton of Anne's Digital Images. I used her lovely "Father Christmas image on my side stepper card.

Large verse is by Second Chance to Dream; Small verse by Tiffany Doodles
Anne's lovely image: Painted with soft pastels; enhanced with markers

Dimension added to various elements with foam tape

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you will take a peek at all the crafty fun to be had at The Outlawz.

Smiles & Hugs,
