My beautiful friend always has fun interesting things to say and I enjoy her posts very much!
       As we all know it's winter and that means some major, "down-time," for most people employed in the, "Green Industry."  Since my specific household contains two individuals in this field, winter is defined by many lazy...

It has been awhile since I came over here and looked at this - it is so very different now ... no clue how to even really see what is happening ... sigh ... it would be nice if ppl would just let things be simple to use instead of making htem complicated and difficult!!!

"8) Forget Those Without Shelter

No room at the inn.

One of the key moments in the story Christians celebrate is the moment when Jesus was almost born in the streets of Bethlehem.

Our need to clean up the Christmas story assumes that the innkeeper told them to use the manger but the Bible says no such thing. There was no room at the inn, leaving Mary to place her newborn child in a smelly feeding trough.

For that night they were without shelter.

Throughout his life Jesus would spend his ministry with no place to lay his head.

This time of year we celebrate a homeless man.

Do our actions, do the places we spend our money, honor that?"
It's not actually Jesus’ birthday

I love knowing the stories that go along with an art piece :) ... it is gorgeous but the story really brings it into my life for me since I will never get to meet the artist or see the piece in real life!
I'll admit, I may have grown up on a farm, but I cannot identify the native hardwoods by grain.  If I were able to do so, I would have realized the choice I was about to make was a bad one.   To back up a little bit, I am putting two pieces in a […]

Story
Tagline
Art is Fun
Introduction
I am a hobby photographer as well as a Professional Artist. I work in watercolors, India Inks, digital pixie-ons & fabric dyes. I generally use 140 lb watercolor paper or silk fabric or cotton fabric.
 
Art is a growing, learning and social experience for me that never stops being fun for me. I enjoy meeting other artists and seeing the incredible artwork others create.
 
I love reading, learning new art techniques and learning more about already known to me techniques.
 
I am an Iowa native who lived in the state about 40 years and who then lived in Texas for about 20 years. In November 2010, I moved to South Dakota.
