Happenings Around Here This Year (or in January)

Happy New Year to all you creative sisters (and brothers) out there in blogland! 

I'm starting off 2017 by taking Martha Lever's online Chunky Versals class which is offered on the Creative Workshops website. It starts tomorrow and I'm very much looking forward to it!

I love this colorful stuff!

I've followed Martha's blog for many years and I took her Calligra-Fun class a few years back. It's fair to say that I'm a big Martha Lever fan! 


I will also be starting off the year 
by finishing up these two UFO's.


In addition, I've joined in on Beth Moore's SSMT (Siesta Scripture Memory Team) which will help me memorize 24 scriptures in 12 months. I love this opportunity because it sounds like a great method for learning scripture! 

Anyone can start at any time. Basically, you go to Beth's Living Proof Ministries blog on the 1st and 15th of each month, and comment with your name, city, state, the verse you have chosen to memorize, and the Bible translation from which you took the scripture. 

I started out on 1/1 with: 

Donna, Krugerville, TX, 1 Timothy 2:1-2 

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercession, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. NKJV 

I stumbled on these two scriptures while looking up some completely unrelated scriptures, and immediately knew they were perfect to start with since our new president will soon be inaugurated. I chose it because of the importance of lifting our government up in prayer, as well as the governments of other countries, especially Israel.  


This year, I'll be posting a poll on my blog every two weeks. If you get this through a blog reader or email, you can click here to go to the blog. The poll is at the top, right.


I am currently in Jigsaw Puzzle season. 
Isn't everybody?

It commences right after Christmas and CAN go through February when it's cold outside and cozy inside, although I doubt it will be that long this year because I have other things I want to do as you can tell. 

Elmer enjoys Jigsaw Puzzle season.

He stands on the chair...

...and rests his head on the table all the 
while looking out the window for squirrels!
He's a hoot!!!

It was funny and very cute until he tried to jump on the table in the middle of the puzzle! Fortunately, I was able to stop him the second he began to jump. Thankfully, there was little to no puzzle damage. Whew!

As for Mr. Chewy, he could care less!

See you soon!

May Your Day Be Merry, Creative and Bright,
