Art Journaling in the Scriptures
Art Journaling in the Scriptures is a very rewarding and enriching way to spend time with God. This journaling class will teach you how to prepare your Bible pages and journals for a variety of creative mediums. You will learn several techniques that can be applied to each journal entry you create. You will need to bring a Bible with you, one that you can work in, or a good quality journal, but it should be one that will accept mixed media such as watercolors. Here are two types of quality journals that would work best for art journaling:

Friday, March 3, 2017

We have enjoyed some beautiful weather during the month of February and had a nice taste of Spring, however it is still winter and we were so reminded of that this morning!

I was looking forward to having my morning coffee on the porch, but that is out of the question now :(
Good morning friends!
Don't panic I've just removed some of my latest blog posts, it really hasn't been since September that I've posted. Just cleaning up.
I have finally given my notice of retirement and looking forward to my last day on Friday, May 5th. Just two months away! Now begins the work of downsizing! I've been doing a little of that already but the heavy duty work starts now.
We are planning to move south, how far and where is still a mystery. We're looking around Myrtle Beach, and possibly some areas in Tennessee, maybe even North Carolina. It's a difficult decision. We don't want to make a mistake and have to move again. We're taking our time, checking out all options available.
I will be keeping my studio and possibly opening up a gallery in the area we move to. I want it to be comfortable, a place to come in, enjoy the artwork, paintings and cards, relax with a good magazine and a cup of coffee or tea and visit for awhile. I will also be offering art classes taught by myself as well as other local artists.
