A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Have You Ever...

I can't believe it! No! I need prayer--QUICK! 

Have you ever finished something and realized that you missed a tiny, almost insignificant, part? And, though it seems insignificant in the scheme of things, it has a huge impact on the finished product. 

A recipe for disaster is for me to forget one tiny, lousy, bead AFTER I've put the entire 3-strand necklace together. It has happened before and will probably happen again. Photo zoom: a dead giveaway. Why didn't I get that magnifier lamp for my birthday?!

Well, enough of my ranting. I'd like to hear about your mistakes, bloopers, bleeps #@_#@##, etc! Write them on my blog. I need to know that I'm not alone in this world of mishaps. Perhaps you'll share your biggest blunder for all of us to see. At least you could add "bravery" to your list of positive traits! And get a BIG THANKS from all of your readers...

Sleep on it!

I am forever doing the same:)My biggest problem is glazing ahead...then forgetting the glaze I used. Gotta know that glaze to know what temp to fire too!!

Hope you can get the blog posting about the Royal Degree Disk up and running...can't wait to see how you have transformed it into a work of art!!!

I've heard that the artisans who weave Persian carpets with colorful and intricate patterns, always make teeny tiny mistakes because they believe only God is perfect.

D and Dora:

Royal Degree Disk--soon, I hope. Have to redo. Darn it.

Wow, Dora! Isn't that a profound thought and so true!

I forgot to thank Jesus for all that I have...
