Yes, I still make stuff :)

For anyone who still visits this blog, bless your sweet little heart. I haven't posted in ages. I've thought about it. People have encouraged me to do it. But life gets busy...and stays busy.

I've never stopped playing in my craft room. And yes, there is still a craft room. Still filled with supplies and inspiration. Still my favorite place to escape for a few hours (when I have them).

My current obsession is bible journaling. (Me and everyone else in the scrapbooking world, apparently.) Hello, Bandwagon! Why, sure, I'll jump right on!

It works for me for so many reasons, but the main one is: it reminds me to stop and think. Finding a verse that speaks to whatever I happen to be struggling with, then turning it into art -- well, that's just about the most perfect way to relax in the history of EVER!

Here are a few of my favorite pages:

I'm pretty compulsive about not covering up the words. But I'm finding all these wonderful transparent chalks and watercolors that don't obscure anything, so once in a while I'll experiment a little like this:

And here's the front of my bible. I gave it some personality...but not too much. (As in: not so much that the old lady sitting next to me in church will need to pray extra for me.)

And that concludes my show and tell for today. I'll try not to wait quite so long before the next one. Stay tuned!

These are beautiful! I have to admit that I haven't heard of Bible Journaling, at least not like this. Of course, I also live in the unchurched Pacific Northwest, so that may be part of it. Anyway, your work is BEAUTIFUL! I am not nearly artistic enough to do anything like that (and I also do most of my bible reading on my phone, so that kind of makes it impossible...)
