A "little" art...

Howdy, folks!

Looking forward to a weekend of reading and art. I've been doing so much art in my spare time that I've neglected some of the "good" reading I've been wanting to do. I've been working my way, ever-so-slowly, through Watchman Nee's The Normal Christian Life, but I'd like to get more into that. Of course, my Bible is most important, but I find myself thinking, "I'll read that when I'm really able to concentrate." You-know-who makes sure I never feel really able to concentrate, so I'll just jump in and read anyway! I also have the autobiography of George Muller which I've been looking forward to.

I just finished the Miscellaneous Mail Art PAT, so-called because there are several groups, each doing a different type of mail art. The one I'm in is for MOO's, which are tiny cards measuring 1"x2-3/4". I've done one before and swore I'd never do it again, lol! It's so hard to fit a drawing on a rectangle of those dimensions! Anyway, here are the MOO's I made. I made two cards for each group member according to the theme they chose.

Here are a couple more Faith Art cards for the Random Act of Kindness group. This is an ongoing project, so I just mail them to the host when I happen to get some made. I'm enjoying this a lot!

I also find I haven't written in my journal in ages. I'd like to start doing that again, even if only a very short entry each day. A person should be able to come up with something worthwhile to say once a day, right? It just takes a little pondering to recapture something that's worth passing along. A little goal of mine.

Well, that's all for right now. Thanks for dropping by! I'll try to get over and visit some of you this weekend.

Shalom and God's blessings on whomever passes this way. :)


  1. I love the tiny pieces of art, Lisa. You have such a distinct style. Why don't you start writing a little meditation/devotion book called Words from the Woods. It wouldn't have to be a daily book. Maybe you could divide it into months like Gladys Taber did.

  2. A very good idea! I have to stop talking myself out of such things. :)

  3. "Words from the Woods".... that sounds like an absolutely fantastic idea. I hope you will try it.

  4. I'm interested in what you say about Christian reading. I have been wondering lately a lot about how we grow. Is it reading? Journalling? Still time? Fellowship? Different things at different times? I am relying a lot on my little devotional book and its Bible reference each day, but I think I should get a good book too...

  5. Special cards from Original-Lisa :)

  6. Lisa, your animal sketches are so delightful! I love the camel. Great work.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
