Yesterday, while my friend was visiting and making us some gorgeous bracelets out of Swarovski Crystal I made us some vintage bookmarkers. Oooh what fun! I start out with a good quality glue stick. (Big Lots has Kodak glue sticks right now for 50 cents) Next I paste down a background of tissue paper (on a sheet of cardstock)..green w/sparkles this time, and one thin layer of fancy kleenex. Then just layer on your collage type things( I cut them into strips with the paper cutter last) and what a delightful result. If you've never tried this its so easy and such fun. Buying a CD of vintage clip art is the way to go ...you never run out of goodies that way. ~~~~I loved your comments about life in general on my previous post...=). And..books, ahh books! Beany Malone holds a special place in my heart yet, as does Elsie Dinsmore and the Eugenia Price series. How about Willa Catha and Patricia St.John? Gene Stratton-Porter and how I could go on and on. I'm off to the craft room to make another sheet of bookmarkers and re-string my watch bracelet just now. If you are here just now , please leave me a comment...I'd love to hear from you. I'm looking forward to responding to your comments by visiting your blogs. It may not be untill tomorrow though, prayer meeting is tonight and by the time I do some crafting it will be time to get supper on the table. Wishing for everyone a coffeetable book full of feminine ideas and a good novel waiting to whisk you away later on. Also... for me personally I am praying God will bless Israel with victory and her prisoners of war with survival and God's mercy and strength.
"Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head; they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away." Isaiah 51:11 This prophecy was fulfulled after the horrid things they suffered at the hands of the Babylonians and God will take care of his own, again and again.
"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near; Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." Isaiah 55:6,7
