can you believe it?

I was stunned today at church while hanging up a calendar and a friend told me to turn the page to February as next Sunday would be the 1rst!! Where did January go? Probably somewhere in the midst of our remodeling project, maybe behind all those pieces of sheetrock? or under all that sawdust? Yikes! February. I just can't believe it.

I have been feeling kind of house bound lately, going a little stir crazy just because of how cold it is outside. I still try going walking to get out but that is only for 20 minutes. I would love to go out and work in my shed but it really isn't all that inspiring while my teeth are chattering incessantly and my hands are shaking too hard to glue down anything where I want it. So I do alot of reading, alot of computer games and cleaning. Boy, am I ready to have my workspace in the house! I did manage to get my page done for "His Holy Name" Bible Study and didn't lose any appendages while out scrapping :) you can check out all of the pages here.
this is just a doodle page I did while thinking about last week's attribute of God: Holy...
It was kind of fun to just draw, color and write about some of the verses about God and His Holiness... maybe I will do this with each attribute, we will see ;)
this is my page for this week's attribute: Sovereign. I used the recipe stamps from Unity, some old SEI stickers and I kept the study notes in the library pocket. This study is something I look forward to every other week when it comes out but also something that is on my mind throughout the day. Thinking about God and His certain attributes... pretty neat.
Have a great week! K

a winter to remember

I can't remember this much snow since I was just a kid - oh so long ago :) not really but kind of. Since we got out of school early today I thought I would get a jump on my "to do" list. My blog being one of them. I've been meaning to post more, create more and share more ... we'll see how it turns out.

I did spend some time working on my "His holy name" study that Patter is leading and was truly blessed as I am every time I stick my nose in God's word. We were to pick 2 verses with "holy" in them. I wrote down all the ones that stuck out to me and then narrowed it down to 2. I am so excited to be in this study and knowing that I get to create also. Knowing that at the end of this study I will have a book full of verses and notes and a deeper understanding for God and who He is. Did I say I get to create too? What an awesome time! Here is my page(s) for this study. You can check out all of the participants pages in the Splitcoast Gallery here.

I used AM letter stickers, Unity corner stamp, Stampin Up arrow, scallop and tab punches along with some SU ink. TFL! Come and join too!
I love Mondays, they are full of opportunity! Plus it helps when you get to come home early from "work"!
Have a great week.
PS look for some great new Unity stamps coming out this Thursday!

I'm ready.

I am ready to go back to school tomorrow. I am ready for the kids to go back to school tomorrow. I am ready to get back to a routine. I am ready to buckle down and exercise and watch what I eat. I am ready for more snow. I am ready to start this awesome Bible Study with Patter. Yep, I am ready for a New Year, a new week and a new study.
this will be my Bible Study book to keep my notes and creations in. I am sooo excited!
