1st of June..

Hello everyone! I am back, too many excuses for not being here, I missed the whole blogging challenge. Lots been happening here and yet nothing worthy of reporting.


Here’s me doing what I do best…. being Grandma!

I discovered Bible Art Journaling, so I’ve spent a lot of time doing that recently.. let me share a few of my favourite pieces with you.

And then there’s my bible studies which have included the books of Deuteronomy and Ecclesiastes both were hard studies for me still a relative newbie. Now I am taking a break because the two different groups I am doing the studies with are now doing the other book.. which I’ve just finished. And to be honest I feel a little bit overwhelmed with these books and so I am not REDOING them!

I also started a Thursday night art class, which is nice and handy to home and it’s a lot of fun, we spend a great deal of the night laughing! Occasionally I produce work that shocks me with how good it is like these..

And then we started Friday night card classes, learning how to make greeting cards, so here a few we have made so far!

Did I also mention that I am going to be a Grandma for the fourth time again?! in only 9 weeks we will be welcoming into our family a little girl, baby sister for our Squishy boy!

So my daughter has been re arranging their home and painting and making everything just right, and Squishy’s new room is a forest theme, so we made him this Mobile..


Jasmin Designed it and started it, but I couldn’t resist and kind of took over and re worked it a little. We both love the end result. Then Amber decided to be crafty and make a mobile for Sweetpea and so I helped her also and made this one..


Then of course it was Mothers Day so my family brought me a Sizzix Big Shot machine and I can cut things out and make even more things, so here’s a sneak peak at something I am making for someone special.. I can’t tell yet because it’s not finished and they don’t know.. but here’s a peek!


So today I am kick starting June which is by the way the Official First Day of Winter.. and if you’ve read any of my previous posts I’m sure you’ve realized I struggle every year with Winter, we’re not BFF and we are certainly not BFFL I would go as far as to say Ï “HATE” Winter but then that too mean, so I am going to try once again, to embrace it.

So what better way to start off my “Embracing of winter” than a challenge.

I found this once posted on Facebook by a good friend and decided to take it up..

30-Day Generosity Challenge

You did it! By joining with others to make a positive change in your community, you helped lead the way to a better world. Keep the generosity movement going! Inspire members of your congregation, family and friends by completing a different act of generosity each day.

30 days Generosity Challenge.   There’s the link to have a read for yourself maybe you’d like to join me, I decided I could work my way back into regular blogging with this challenge and add photos too.

Here is week one’s challenges…

Week 1

Hold the door open for someone.

Pick up litter and throw it away.

Thank your bus driver.

Ask someone struggling with homelessness their story.

Give a friend a flower.

Pay for someone’s tank of gas.

Donate clothes to a charity.


So right away I have an issue since I don’t catch the bus and so I asked my friend, my friend is a chaplain and director of Family Life at Avon Ohio’s Lutheran church, so if he says it’s a good thing it must be.. here is his blog  Modern Pilgrim Journey

So anyways I spoke to James and said Ï don’t ride the bus. Can I substitute it?” he said “Yes add whatever you want it’ll be fun to see what you come up with” I decided that just because I don’t ride the bus doesn’t mean I can’t thank a bus driver.. so I will do that!

The other thing is I don’t know where I might find a homeless person.. does that sound shallow? I really haven’t seen any homeless people in my town!

So anyways, as I can I’ll take photos and add them and a blog about this challenge..

if you want to join in.. follow the links and come on over!

Check in soon and see what else I’m up to.

  1. Welcome Back! Busy, busy, I can relate to that.
    Just a question, not a criticism, but I noticed many are starting to paint or color in their Bibles. How will you be able to go back and read those pages? I was looking at your flock photo up close. Or do those who do this, just use a separate Bible?
    Also, as a “newbie”, you might want to study in the New Testament first, but read Genesis, Psalms and Proverbs. Those are not so hard to read and give you a good foundation.

    • Hi Lee, thus us a specific bible for bible art, which l am handing to my Grand daughter on her 21st birthday. I brought this bible knowing that it wouldn’t be read. The bible for reading for every day is by my bed. The bible study group l am working with started at Genesis and we are working our way through the bible, just finished Deuteronomy last Friday. In between each book we spend a week or so with either psalms or proverbs. And l have a few favourites that I go back and read often.
