Globe Decor:  You Are Divine

, , , ,

  journal entry: “You Are Divine” is used here to mean that we are children of Heavenly Parents. Our attributes are Heavenly gifts. We are divine.  This is a fairly large globe which had several damaged surfaces. I used a “one-coat metallic spray paint” which covered quickly and perfectly in just one coat as it said […]

Found these little bottles with straws built in 2 for $1.  I am going to make fish-shaped ice cubes out of juice and put them in the bottles. Then, I am going to plop them back into the freezer. When it is […]

Daily Planner with a Personal Touch


journal entry: Most women love planners.  Not people who plan but books called planners.  That is because women are always planning.  Planning on paper that is pretty or behind tabs that are funky is more fun that writing things down on a scrap of paper or in a regular notebook.  We all know that.  I […]
