8.30.15 Sunday Scribblings {Every Good Gift}

It's been quiet on the western blogging front. So many thoughts swirling about in my head, but my focus has not been present. With visions of back-to-school for the first legitimate, pack-a-lunch, bring-a-snack, all-day-every-day, time, I've been up to my eyebrows in uniforms, nap-mats, school supplies, and new schedules. The only pitter pattering here right now is my heart, even as I type these words. It is a lot to think about. It is a lot of responsibility, and I must confess I don't always think of myself as a grown-up. Yes. I will be 40 this weekend. A young 40. 

So . . . many thoughts, few words. 

What I have been indulging in, because it calms my soul, is more art and lettering. I recently took another Skillshare class because they had a special "get 3 months for 99 cents/month" enrollment, and how could I pass up a deal like that? Between that and dabbling in some new calligraphy tools, I've been expanding my repertoire from amateur watercolors and hand-lettering to amateur digital design and modern calligraphy.

I want to grow my skill and my business, so I am dedicating some time each week to creating new pieces using new skills. Some might rock, others may demand I throw rocks at them. We shall see. Here is my first piece up for the Sunday Scribbling feature. It is free for you to download - just right click and save!

A full resolution and print version of this will be available in my Etsy shop later this week. 

For now, I'm off to bed because I have a schoolgirl to wake in the morning who loves mornings as much as I do. 

Prayers for a peaceful night and sweet slumbers. Remember, you are so very loved. Rest up so you can love the world like Jesus!

PS - Yes, I know it is Monday night. Sunday ran away.

  1. It is lovely!
    Praying you all have a wonderful first week of school! :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Rest assured I do read each and every word, but please forgive me if I don't get back to you right away. The toddler tugging on my leg and the one year old pulling my hair may have seized control of my typing abilities. Blessings on your day!
