Good Morning!
You may have been wondering where I have been and what I've been up to...

I have written a book - a Devotional Study Book ...
entitled "Finding JOY in the midst ... planting your roots deep!"

It is being printed as I write this! and my team of advisors / editors / supporters are planning a Book Launch for February 2, 2013. I have tried to upload a copy of the poster here but "blogger" is not allowing me to upload any pictures! I understand this is an issue with them at this moment in time. Hope they soon get it fixed! Anyway - if you go to facebook you may see the poster...

Thank you for being patient with me!
I will return - I have some "new stuff" from Stampin' Up! that I haven't even looked at yet! Hoping to do that today! And I will have some creations ... and hopefully I can upload the pics.

Enjoy the snow - stay safe and warm!
Blessings ...

Happy New Years Day in the Secret Garden!

Here it is ... another year! May this one be a blessed year for you all! May it be filled with peace and love and joy!
My New Years Resolution every year for the past 5 years or so has been to take a Scripture that God has given to me and make it mine! By that I mean to memorize it and live it out in my life! Sometimes that has been a painful process as He does the necessary work in this ole gal! I decided to make myself and 2 friends a little booklet to write quotes and scripture in - I found these file folder booklets at the local WM store - covered them with DSP from the new Print Poetry DSP available in the new Spring Catalogue as of  January 2. I randomly stamped a small image on some of the pages...

Just before Christmas I was able to make a card using lots of new "stuff" - here you will see more of the Print Poetry DSP, Secret Garden stamps and framelits... available in the Spring Catalogue. I had received the Trust God stamp set in December and this is the first chance I had to use it... Love this sentiment! :)  Oh yes! Love that Woodgrain embossing folder!
I also used the Framelits Labels Collection and did some paper piercing.
Here is the flower close up ... shaded with ink and blender pen, and then "painted" with shimmer paint. (you don't see this very well in the picture)
Have a wonderful day! Hubby is "puttering" - actually we have a broken pipe so he is trying to fix that! Think I'll go "play" in the craft room!

Thanks for stopping by...
HUGS and blessings!
