Try, Try, Try Again

Well, finally.  I tried three times and ways to download this photo and finally had to close google chrome and open it again.  Something went haywire with the connection, I guess.  Who knows? is the other necklace I made last weekend.  My friend loves it.  I used very inexpensive beads from WalMart, no less, but they made up very pretty.  She's a small older lady who loves wearing big jewelry and she looks so cute.  I can't wait to see her in it.

VBS is over and it was a very good week.  There is SO much preparation for a productive week and we had excellent leaders.  It was a bittersweet time when the large group leader recognized that it was my last VBS in that church.  I'm looking forward to what the future brings and can't wait to see where God places us in his kingdom's work.  

A wedding rehearsal looms tonight with the wedding tomorrow--onward and upward.

Busy Week

It's been a busy week--Vacation Bible School Week at our church.  Well, I guess you might say I've been busy for a few weeks now learning the music.  Tomorrow's our last day and tomorrow evening I have a wedding rehearsal and Saturday is the wedding.  Never a dull moment for a church musician in an active church.  That's what I was called by God to do--church music.  God has also given me a desire--to create.  I did manage to make two necklace and earring sets last weekend, for which I was grateful.  Blogger is acting up today and messed up my first photo.  I'll have to try again tomorrow on that one--maybe. The one above is Czech glass aquamarine crystals with clear crystals in between.  My friend loves it and so do I--so dainty and pretty.

Psalm 27:1 says:
"The Lord is my light and the one who saves me."

That makes me happy.

I'm going to be posting close-ups of some of my artwork while I'm in the "gettin' ready to move" phase of my life now.  Hope you enjoy them.  This is one that I kept for myself.  It says much of what I'm feeling right now.  Though things around me are chaotic, I realize that I'm always safe in the loving arms of Jesus.  Thank you, God.

So Much To Do...

I've tried to bring a color palette to life here.  I love these color combinations
Strawberry creme
White and

My posts are going to be few and far between because of the move.  
The major problem is my hoarding over the last few years.  I've let things get out of control and letting things go has been a bit overwhelming.  I believe things are coming around now a little better.  More boxes are being packed and dents are being made.  Good for me.
