Seven Things God Hates...

In Proverbs 6:16-19 the writer lists seven things God hates:

The reason I wanted to highlight this scripture is that THREE of the seven have to do with lying! Just thinking that with all the fake news and accusations happening in our nation right now, there is going to be a price to pay! PRAY FOR THE ELECTION!

I got a new pen...and I am loving it!  It is the

The best part is that it has a pencil and eraser along with the four colors of pens!  SO COOL!  I have gotten two in less than a month and have another in my Amazon basket to send to a friend.  It will be great for Bible note taking as well as drawing in my Bible.

One of the complaints on the Amazon comments was that the ink runs out too quickly so I tried to run out on the following picture... nope, it is still writing!  This is an 8.25" x 10.25" spread so there is a lot of ink used up.

The COOLEST software EVER!

Oh man!  It has been so long since I posted anything I am having to remember how!

I just got a new software package that is so amazing that I just have to share with you....and OF COURSE I'm going to use my "For You" picture to demonstrate what it does.

I was able to create this video in less than 45 minutes after I paid for it!  I posted the video on facebook for my friends to see it and the first two people that said they loved it I made a video just for them.

One raises and sells Natural/Organic Beef and the other sells real estate.  I created both of the following within an hour!  SO COOL!  SO EASY!  I was able to use "canned" pictures to create these, I just had to put them where I wanted them and add words...

My "end goal" is to do more of the "For Me" type videos so I might be back here doing more of those.  I have to do more work for that type of video because the package comes with ZERO pre drawn characters and scenes for Bible type presentations.  No problem, I can draw those.

For You!

Four years ago I did this quick drawing to color...I made it available for free  HERE to anyone that wanted it for Sunday School classes, or whatever. 

Weeeeellll, on a whim I sent the picture to the company that is making my charms to see if they could make one of this. Check out the results!!!  I am SO EXCITED!  Now that I know what can be done I will be doing others soon...she already has two "on the drawing board"  :-) 

Buy it here for only $15 +$2 shipping

".... then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” 
(Acts 4:10, 12)

Today's New Challenge

Today my cousin asked me to create a key-chain for her 8 year old grandson using the "Chosen" charm...oh, and he loves LSU.  Hummmm.... I can not tell a lie, gifts, ANY gifts for men, much less little boys have always been a problem.  I don't "do" male gifts!  But, here I was faced with a challenge.

First I took the ninny way out and showed her this:  (UGH! - zero imagination!)


Brenda said she wanted me to use some leather on it... back to the drawing board.  After 4 failed attempts I finally came up with one that I was happy with to show her.  HIT!  I might have to make one for myself, I like it that much... though I don't care a thing about LSU so the hanging charm will have to be different.

Charm stitched to Leather

If you order this keychain we can "talk" about what you want to hang at the bottom.

Moving In A New Direction .... again.

YIKES!!!  It has been over a year since I posted here!  Life has taken a huge turn so I really haven't had anything to share, but, I just realized that a Facebook Page that I now have (today) is sending folks here!  Gotta say, Facebook still confuses me.

ANYWAY, the change ... I am doing more Jewelry making and far less doodling theses days.  Well, actually, I have taken my doodles into my jewelry design!  How cool is that?!

I have found a company that will manufacture charms for me so that's my new THANG.   I write the words, using my own handwriting and they make it happen! .. Oh, and then I make the final bracelet/necklace/keychain/whatever ...

If you see anything that you want below, please email me at and let's "talk".

AND, please come and "Like" my Facebook Page to stay current with the latest.  I have a charm being made right now that I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT!!!  But, that will follow in another post :-)

Examples of what I have so far:

- "Thy Will Be Done" - a reminder to whisper that prayer when faced with choices and decisions (Matthew 6:10 - from the prayer that Jesus, himself, told us that we should pray)
- "WHATEVER He Says -Do It" - because your future depends on it! very many examples in the Bible of what happens when you do, or don't, do what he says, but Mary is the one that said it here...(John 2 ...Mary tells servants to do whatever Jesus told them because she had faith that he would fix the wine )
- "Chosen" (by God) - reminder that you are so important to God that HE CHOSE YOU! ( Ephesians 1:11 - "In him we were chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will")
- "Handmade" (by God) - reminder that you were no accident - GOD made you, on purpose, and HE had a plan for your life before you were even born! (Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart...")
- "Loved" (by God) - reminder that no matter how unloved you feel, GOD loves you! (John 16:27 - Jesus said..."the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and believed that I came from God")
Bracelets or necklaces, antique silver or antique bronze, with or without dangle rhinestone, or "by God" heart. Just $10 each plus $2 S/H (unless you want to pick it up here). This is my opening Facebook price, the price will be more on Etsy.

Making SVG Files for Cutters Now

An online friend, Sally Carpenter, asked me to come up with a zentangle leaf to cut on her Cricut.  

This is what I came up with... it isn't beautiful but it is a beautiful thing to weed.  Very few little bits left behind if you just lift the stem and put the leaf away almost all the unwanted bits stay behind.

I love what she did with it... HERE.

You can purchase the SVG feather HERE for $.99

Journal to Lose Weight...

In 2014 I did a daily journal… here is a page… I LOVE my journal! I can look at this and tell what I ordered from Amazon, where I ate, the movies I saw, the weight I lost (2 pounds, even though I ate at Wendy’s, Panda Express, Chili’s and two pig troughs (aka: all you can eat buffets) . I lost 84 pounds that year! In 2015 I didn’t do a journal and I found a lot of those pounds again frown emoticon … There WILL be another journal this year! Just sayn’

Hersey Kisses Christmas Tree

Today someone posted a picture of a Hersey's Kisses Christmas Tree and asked if anyone had a pattern for it.  I didn't but it looked easy enough so I volunteered to give it a try.  It is made using a Silhouette or Cricut Paper Cutter.   Unfortunately, my Silhouette software isn't working so I had to use SCAL and save it as an SVG file.  Now I can't test it with the Silhouette software.  It cuts perfectly from SCAL... I HOPE IT WORKS!!!  I don't have a picture of it yet, but I will put one when I get candy for the trunk.... I'm just trying to get the pattern out there for folks to use ASAP.  I decided that even though the original had a trunk I was going to skip that for two reasons... 
1. I didn't want to go get more candy and 
2. You really never see the trunk of a Christmas Tree so it isn't necessary.

 This picture is of the box with a clear top made out of transparency film.

The REEEEALLY quick, unedited, How-To video showing how to put the cuts together is HERE. (actually I was able to load it below, just not sure how it will do) 

The SVG file is HERE

The SCAL file is HERE.

After I did all the work to create a box I found the original design and realized that it was SO MUCH EASIER!!!  It took me about 5 minutes to create the .svg file!  Below is a picture of the difference in size.

If you want the SVG version without the box go HERE

The SCAL version without the box is HERE

You can see how Brenda Quintana (I think she is the original designer... Thanks Brenda) puts her design together HERE
