Sewing and Painting

I finished one of the circley-things in my post about my 'office'.  A Bunny Wheatie!  Cute much?!


Cute little bunny butt.

Cute little bunny toes.




I ended up painting on the eyes/cheeks/toes/hollymayb - which led me to paint something else (because I couldn't put the paintbrush down) that I've been wanting to paint for a long time.



Right about here is where I thought it would be a cool idea to show you just one way to recyce an old phonebook.  You rip off the front cover and use the top page as a pallet.  When you're done, or you need a new pallet, just tear off the top page and you're left with a fresh, new one on top.

This is what I finished up with...

I played with acrylic paint (Resene of course) and indian ink.

I've had this piece of scripture with me for a long time now and had written and re-written it down in various places.  It's a small image of how different everyone is, and how splendid every thing in creation is in it's own amazing way.  It reminds me of how indescribable our God is and how infinitely creative and amazing he is.


I want to decorate my house with encouraging and instructing scriptures so that wherever I look and however I'm feeling, I'm reminded and encouraged and so that the people in my house are too.
