So, I spent a lot of time computing and watching You Tube videos. I also got my laundry done and ran to the store to pick up a birthday card for a granddaughter in Maryland, whose birthday snuck up on me! Kristen will be 12 on Monday! I think the card may be a little late.
I did a little reading in The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. Here's an excerpt with underlining and margin notes by a friend who owned the book before me.
Oh, I also took a nice long nap on the couch. Very important!
Toward 8 p.m. I was looking over some of the swaps I've got going, and realized I hadn't done any art today. I always feel better when I've done a piece of art on my days off. I'm involved in a swap called "No Flowers/No Birds/No Butterflies" (or maybe that's the wrong order, lol). The idea is to avoid the cute themes we so often fall back on. We're supposed to come up with themes that are a little different. Here are my first two cards. The dinosaur is very similar to the one I did for the Cute Dinosaur swap, but I figured dinosaurs would be okay for this swap. :)
|Note to self: Give that dinosaur some teeth!! (The color is sort of washed out in this photo.)|
Bedtime soon, so I'll say "Shalom!"
