I left a blank space on this ornament for you so you can put your own name in. This would me a nice element to use for the front of a 'tall' christmas card. Yesterday, I gave a link to the Microsoft Expressions program - I have not had a great deal of experience in it, but i can make my way around in there. If you have a basic question or two, feel free to email me at - and thanks sooo much for all your touching comments :)

I really enjoyed myself yesterday. I was supposed to meet a (new) friend at the Painter's room yesterday, but she did not show. Unfortunately, I lost her phone number so could not even phone her. I hope everything is ok. Anyways, I got to paint (digitally) with the group and that was a royal treat. I am so fortunate to be part of this ladies group. There were about six of us yesterday and we had a great visit. I have a good start on a painting of fall leaves in water which I will share with you at a later date.

Yesterday was so productive - one of those days you wake thinking you will never get a thing done, but it all came together. I managed to clean the house, do loads of laundry, make a delicious dinner, go for a run and make some christmas card layouts.

One thing has come to mind that I would like to work on in my life lately. I find that sometimes when my husband asks me to do something either my hackles go up, or I feel a stab of resentment or... unwillingness to do things with a loving attitude. I really dislike this - it is robbing me of joy! I am going to pray on this area and I would love it if you have any scripture or advice for me? This is what I've found:

Jesus can turn water into wine,
but He can't turn your whining into anything.

Phillipians 2:14

Do all things without murmerings and disputings


Ok, well none of us is going to make a marble milkshake, or blend coke cans ... but wouldn't it be cool to know that you COULD? He, he... so what if you forgot a chicken bone in the broth... you would not recognise it if you owned one of these:


  1. hi mrs.

  3. Thank You for today's lovely Christmas ornie

  4. Thanks, Barb--I know what you mean about hackles raising when hubby asks you to do something. Don't have a scripture--just life experience. Ask yourself "what's the worst that could happen if I did/did not do this?" It's worth a shot. :)

  5. Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
    quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
    different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
    a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
    I made over $900 last month having fun!
