Do It Yourself

On Saturday I did  great DIY project which was one of my mom’s great inventions that I carried out. Instead of buying a dry erase board calendar, you can make your own!

P1300304

P1300303

Supplies:

1. A regular to large sized old frame you don’t want anymore with glass

2. Dry erase markers (preferably fine point)

3. Sharpies (or any permanent marker, preferably not fine point)

4. A piece of paper the size of your frame. (I needed to cut my paper to fit the frame)

First, Draw a basic calendar month on the piece of paper. By basic, I mean the pattern above without the month name and dates. Second, put the calendar into the frame as if it is a picture. Thirdly, You can write the name of the month you are in and all the dates. After each month is ended, simply wipe off the dry erase and repeat the second step. You never need to buy a calendar again! If you have any questions, just comment and I’ll try to answer my best.

Activities with Me

As I mentioned in my last post, October has arrived and with it comes the real weather change I anticipated in September. Windy, dry, cool.

Lately (especially Saturday) I have been doing a lot of projects…

My EMMA Writing and Literature teacher says red means “love”. I got a lot of love on this paragraph. (Actually not all the red means I did something wrong and I wasn’t the only one with this much love. 😉 )

This is my kind of Weather

Winter is arriving. Actually I should say ‘fall’ but anyway something cold is arriving! I love this kind of weather. Windy, cold, sometimes dry, sometimes rainy. Obviously, some people aren’t really enjoying the wind right now but… but I am. I love wearing warm gray sweatpants and snugly striped sweaters. I love having the windows open and hearing the wind whistling through the trees. I love sitting down with a cup of hot chocolate or tea while I work on my school. This is my kind of weather.

Calligraphy

Recently Mom and I went to Barnes and Noble to look around because Mom had a gift card there. We ended up with the prettiest Calligraphy book I have ever seen called Calligraphy made easy.

They have projects in the back which have a example (shown above) and a write-it-yourself. (I hope that sentence made sense 😉 )

My favorite project example. I can’t wait to try this one out myself!

Practicing sheet. (I didn’t write those words.

I couldn’t help but think of my friend Charlotte (who actually got me interested in calligraphy) when I got this book. She is AMAZING at this type of calligraphy. You can see some of her artwork HERE and HERE.

I hope you enjoyed this little post! Enjoy!

Suggestions Please!

I haven’t posted in quite a whole and I am sorry. Life lately as been very crazy. My sister is getting married. Weddings can get kinda crazy. That’s life. I am exited for her though! 😉

After all that chatter, I shall get on to the real business.

Friday.

Friday Charlotte and I hope to do a Girl’s of Faith video! No promises because we are lost on suggestions! We need a suggestion that we can do without too much preparation. Will you give me a suggestion or two? We really need your help. Charlotte’s mom said that we could do a video on how to be a good hostess. What do you think about that idea?

Thanks so much for your help!

Open the Clouds!- Unspoken

Here is a great song by a band called “Unspoken”.

We’re looking on, to that glorious day
A brighter morning, when the sky rolls away
I’ve been ready, since the day I was saved
We’ve got a ticket into heaven that’s already been paid

Jesus is comin’
He’s comin’, He’s comin’

Open the clouds, spirit set me free
Open the clouds, shine down on me
Open the clouds, see the sun break through
Open the clouds, shine down on you

Open the clouds, spirit set me free
Open the clouds, shine down on me
Open the clouds, see the sun break through
Open the clouds, shine down, shine down, shine down on you

Here in the family, there’s always room for more
A welcome from the king, and an open door
Sit at the table, and be satisfied
You been sent an invitation, but you gotta reply

The king is comin’
He’s comin’, He’s comin’

[Chorus]

People get ready
People get ready, people be ready
No one knows, but the day will come
All we know, is it won’t be long

People get ready, people get ready
Listen close for the trumpet sound
Lift your head to the heavens now

He’s comin’ |7x|

[Chorus]

To the north, to the south, to the east, to the west
Every knee will bow, and tongue will confess
That Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Lord
