All That Shimmers

Happy days to all you wonderful paper enthusiasts!

Form Godly Habits
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and
mind . . . talking about them when you sit at
home and when you walk along the road, when you
lie down and when you get up. Write them on the
doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that
your days . . . may be . . . as many as the days
that the heavens are above the earth.
                            DEUTERONOMY 11:18-21 NIV

Expect Something New

Hello everyone! It's been quite a couple of months here. I had some last minute ideas for Christmas gifts that I made that kept me pretty busy. I knitted two scarfs, tried my hand at making bath bombs, monkey simple, made eight tiny purses using a Tonic die and eight cases for each one. I will post one or more yet this week. 
So now I am going to try and get back on track to get things posted on a regular basis. Here we go with a Christmas card.
