Hi there, how’s it goin’? I’ve been so productive the past few months in getting my Word Art Wednesday challenge blog up and working on This Art That Heals which is basically the same things I put here but over there. So, I have found that keeping three blogs up to date is a bit challenging. If you’d like to visit me over at my other blogs, I’d love to have you visit. I will keep this one up just in case I find more time for it. I hope to see you over at one of my other blogs. ) Have a great day!
Hi there, I am having a lot of fun with my new Word Art Wednesday challenge blog and would like to add to the fun by having a small team! If you’re interested, visit the link above and let me know! ) Thanks!!
Hi, I’m still here, I’ve just been quite productive in a few other things along with getting Word Art Wednesday up and running and This Art That Heals. I am finding that it’s hard to maintain three blogs, visit you, visit groups, etc. I think I am going to move everything from here to This Art That Heals.
Would you be ok with following me over there at TATH? I know it’s been one move after another and I do apologize. I am off to visit with you. Have a great day!
Hi there, my Word Art Wednesday has a new home and can be found here. Also, we have a sponsor for this week’s challenge starting on the 16th. On the 23rd, I am going to have random.org pick one name and if your name is chosen you have a treat in store for you!
Stop by to play along, you won’t want to miss it!!
Hi there, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we don’t have to wait until then to think about and voice what it is we’re thankful for. I’ve been learning each day for the past eight years since my walk with the Lord began to be thankful everyday in the good and not so good times. To search for the small things up to the big things and thank the Lord for them. It always seems to make my day go so much smoother when I search for the little things to be thankful for.
I am thankful for so much but here’s a little list:
the smiles of my husband and children
my son putting his trash away
sunshine to hang the clothes out
being able to hold my husband’s hand
time with my family
when there’s no traffic and I can pull out
paint and paper
my husband’s help
my son’s help
So, what are you thankful for today?
What a great day, the weather was beautiful. We went on a field trip to see this amazing and beautiful tree. Standing under it is so amazing to look all around it and be in awe the strength it has. It’s gone through a hurricane and still stands. Below is a picture and some history on it. Enjoy the beauty.
Angel Oak is a live oak. It is native to the low country and is not very tall but has a wide spread canopy. Lumber from the live oak forests in the sea islands was highly valued for shipbuilding in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Angel Oak stands on part of Abraham Waight’s 1717 land grant. Mr. Waight owned several plantations.
Recorded history traces the ownership of the live oak and surrounding land, back to the year 1717 when Abraham Waight received it as part of a small land grant. The tree stayed in the Waight family for four generations, and was part of a Marriage Settlement to Justus Angel and Martha Waight Tucker Angel. In modern times, the Angel Oak has become the focal point of a public park. Today the live oak has a diameter of spread reaching 160 feet, a circumference of nearly 25 feet, and covers 17,100 square feet of ground.
The Angel Oak is thought to be one of the oldest living things east of the Mississippi River. Acorns from the Angel Oak have grown to produce authentic direct-offspring trees.. Live oaks generally grow out and not up, but the Angel Oak has had plenty of time to do both, standing 65 ft high and with a canopy providing 17,000 square feet of shade. Its limbs, the size of tree trunks themselves, are so large and heavy that some of them rest on the ground (some even drop underground for a few feet and then come back up), a feature common to only the very oldest live oaks. It has survived countless hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and human interference, so there’s a good chance it will still be there waiting for you.
Hi there. I am enjoying the weather, although I’d like it to make up its mind because one day it can be cold, then warm. I don’t mind if winter wants to be a nice 68 degrees. Not to cold or hot. I would love that. Anyway, here’s my post for my Word Art Wednesday challenge, I changed up how to play as sometimes I get these ideas and plop things down on and then take a look and say to myself, what is this? hahah! I then go and ask someone who’s opinion I trust and she helps me out. Thank you to her. Do stop by and play if you have a minute.
So, here’s mine for this week, the scripture is Psalm 28:7.
The background of this piece is the one I did in the tutorial on my other blog, This Art That Heals on using glue and paint to create a crackle effect. I added some hymn paper around the lady and put some paste along that with a flower and some beads. I also added a stamp and some red with bubble wrap.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!
