Wanna kill about 6 hours? Lol Seriously, my daughter and I spent about 6 hours total (2 Saturday and 4 today) working on these two crafts. The penguin family still needs their wings and feet glued on, but their houses are adorable. (The craft is from Youtube and the houses are plastic bottles.) And we had some good learning and bonding time. God is very good and we have a lovely Christmas memory. Oh how we love celebrating Jesus’ birthday!!❤❤❤
God bleased us with a sweet little tetra fiah baby in our fish tank. What a blessing! The newest member of our family is so teeny tiny, the perfect miniature of her momma. And I was struck again with amazement at our incredible Creator and the fact that the greatest artists can produce a detailed miniature. The hand has to be steadier, the paint perfect, the design delicate, eyesight meticulous, etc. And here is our new baby fish, the perfect artpiece. And I praise God, Master Artist!❤❤❤
Today we combine three of my favorite things… art, children and a party. What is better than that? We will honor my daughter’s anniversary of her birth with little friends and art and a good time. How magnificent! I really believe these are also some of God’s favorite things. I don’t believe he made us to be unhappy and alone. So the fun party goes right along with His intentions for us. We hj on or Him and His design together. And art, God is the ultimate master of. He obviously appreciates diversity, color, uniqueness, textures, all things gloriously beautiful. So obviously art is a celebration of His endless skills and He enjoys it. And of course His heart is children. They are the perpetuation of His creation. They are unique masterpieces of His design and vulnerable so He loves them dearly. So we celebrate our Maker today as we celebrate things He loves and designed so perfectly. This is a beautiful day. Yay!!!!😄❤
To my enormous pleasure, Polk Museum of Art now offers free admission to everyone all the time. Super excited as the museum is across from the library we frequent. And we are super excited to have access without yet another financial drain. Praise God for such blessings! We will go often and I will get back to my oil painting I have missed so much. Yay!!!!❤
Some people eat cookies as they are. My daughter eats them for what she imagines them to be. This comes with an artistic child. Beautiful and funny.❤
Poetry warms your mind by the fire.
It is words transformed into art.
And tickling the mind with thoughts so profound
Is just as important as words bright and round.
And the sun seems to tickle the pen as one writes
Poetry meaning so much or so light,
And dancing on tables is paper and pen
And words of expression or meaning or friend.
And keeping one company, poetry does
So keep poems coming and continue art, love.❤
On the way home from our walk, the kids and I looked up and captured God’s paintings in the sky. He is such a Master Painter!!❤❤❤
