Chick-a-dee on Canvas

So, what did you do this weekend?

My weekend was all about the girls, chicks, the women. It was a true girls' weekend. I invited one of my favorite chicks from my home town to hangout with me and here's the result of one of our fun activities.

My very own "chick painting"

Has anyone been to one of their local paint studious where they show you how to paint?  Well, we went for the first time this weekend - to the paint studio, laughed at each others paintings, listened to old school music, ate good food and were merry.  We painted free hand and I'm no artist...drawing is not my calling, but it sure was a lot of fun.  What a ball we had!  Then, at church was our annual women's day program...all about celebrating the women, praising God, drawing closer to Him and learning more about His love for us.  It was an awesome weekend...about the girls, chicks and the women.  I hope you had a weekend as awsome as ours!  :o)

Who Do You Wanna Be?

By day I'm the meeting facilitating, number crunching, report building, work delegating, Christ-like demonstrating, corporate woman. At night, I switch roles: I remove the corporate hat and put on my crafting cape then I transform into the Paper-Crafts Chick. She's my favorite super hero! She's the one that creates all of the fun "little bitty" Positive Notes notepads and even hand-pours the "Sweet News" candles with her own designed labels. She's awesome, I'm awesome! She is ME! I truly love what I do and I love who I am (by day and by night). I believe my paper-crafting is certainly a fun outlet and it's also a sweet gift from God, because His word inspires all of my creations.  I enjoy being me simply because "I am fearfully and wonderfully made...I know that full well" (Psalm 139:14).

So, who do you wanna be?

Be yourself.

So, how do you just be yourself?  First, find out who you really are.  You're more than a wife, mom, office worker.  You're more than that.  There's a creative gift that resides inside of you.  You may not be a crafter (that's fine), however, there is creativity in you.  Just be you...yourself.  Be yourself.

Sweet and New Scripture Candles

Hallelujah!  It is finished!  And I'm all smiles!  :o) 
I've re-designed the scripture candles, printed the new labels and they're selling like (not hotcakes)... more like birthday cakes.  I introduced the newly designed label at my latest craft show and got a really, positive response from the customers.  Everyone loved the ministry of the candles and I've even added 2 new scents:  Sunny Days and Sweet Life - both very popular now.  Yes, I'm still using all-natural soy wax. 

These are my sweet and new scripture candles or should I say "Sweet News" Candles?  They contain sweet news from the Word of God. News so sweet that it encourages, uplifts, inspires, comforts and draws you closer to God. Each candle contains bible scriptures and a short inspirational story that explains the "Sweet News", so that we have a better understanding of how to apply God's divine instructions in our daily journey. They're "...sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb" (Psalm 19:10).

Here are 3 of the candles from the "Sweet News" collection.  I've also included pics of my craft show table setup.  Enjoy! :)

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 kjv

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest... Matthew 11:28, 29 niv

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Psalm 23:6 kjv

This is my cute little setup...
