I was looking for some ideas for my craft supplies, and I found this idea on YouTube. She made hers from the smaller tissue box, but I had some of the larger ones. Takes all of about 15 minutes to make. I used two 12×12 scrapbooking pages. She cut paper towel tubes to different sizes to put inside for the different items, and I found that empty medicine boxes (like cough syrup comes in and others) work well too.
So then, I made another one. Yay!!
I make purses and smaller bags, and I already had sewn the one below so thought I’d just use it for my pens, markers, and micron pens that I use for Bible journaling
Getting organized with fun crafts.
The video that I found on YouTube is below if you want to make some. Enjoy!
~hugs ‘n giggles~ and lots of Blessings
March starts the book of St. Mark. Today was Chapter 4 in my reading through the Bible.
The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare they way before thee. Mark 1:1-2
The book of St. Mark begins with John The Baptist (son of Zacharias and Elizabeth – cousin of Mary) baptizing Jesus.
And there came a voice from heaven, saying. Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.St (Mark 1:11)
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? Mark 4:39-40 KJV
FREEBIE FOR YOU: In the spirit of Love and since we just came out of the month of Love (February), here’s a kit that I made. You can download it HERE for free without my logo. Hope you enjoy it. You are welcome to use it for personal use only in scrapbooking or a website as complete or in part. Credit is appreciated, but not necessary.
Still reading through the Bible, and enjoying the Journaling through the Bible. Now doing it on the pages of my Note Takers Bible. Some use an actual Journaling Bible that are one column and have a wider margin, but for now, I found this one locally with a price I could afford.
Love all that I’ve been learning about the different mediums for doing the journaling like the Gelatos, Watercolor Pencils, Embossing, etc. and my favorite is the glitter tubes that you find for about 99 cents at WalMart. They work great.
The reading for March is Mark if anyone wants to follow along. I’ll be journaling the scriptures, and if you read along in Mark, any comments would be fun to get your point of view on the Scripture as we head into the Resurrection.
Some of my journaling pages below:
This one below I did using some freebies from friends in a Facebook Group for Digital Journaling. The Doodles you can find on Tara’s site and the background is from Bernadette. The fence and scripture and element, I added.
This one below, I created for a theme of creation in the His Kingdom Come site. Wouldn’t it be fun to receive such an invitation to explore the beginnings with God and have him tour you through to the cross?
These are the tags that I’ve made so far for the ‘I AM’ theme with HKC.
Hope you enjoyed my bit of journaling that I’ve been working on. Hope you can stop back for the book of Mark.
Craft Time: Making a Paper Faux Dori. Mine I found a package of three cute file folders at the Dollar Tree. Used one to make the cover. Then like in the video that I worked from, I covered the small booklets of paper with some scrapping cardstock. The banding I used is actual a headband (a package of 6 found at The Dollar Tree). The cutesy added to the closing band is just a page bookmark that I already had. I already had some elastic to use for the inside to slide the books through, but I did buy some at Meijer since I wasn’t sure if I had the right size at home. With buying the elastic, the total cost to make my faux dori was $4.33. I already had the scrapping cardstock, but if you don’t have that, I saw one that used gift wrap. In the video, I don’t think she used the little eyelets for the elastic holders to pass through, but I already had some and thought that would reinforce the holes since it was paper. I think she just punched holes.
If you want to make your own, here is the video. I hope you’ll come back and share your project in the comments so I can see what you created.
Now I’m off to make a fabric one, and add some more accessories to my paper one. Have fun…:)
Happy February!! ‘n Lots of Blessings!!
Or at least I thought intriguing. You know how it is when the weather just doesn’t seem nice enough for an outdoor photo shoot? Well, that’s when I start looking for things around the house to photograph, and that is the way it was the day I took this picture. It is straight out of my camera (no cropping; no photoshop) of moisture beads on my kitchen window. To my eye, it did not look like this, but when I took the pictures from my camera to the computer, some look like tiny shells. Or at least I think so. Always love what the naked eye doesn’t see, but the camera does. I love, love photography. Always have.
Sharing over at Black and White Wednesday. Pop over with your photos and join the fun or just browse what others are sharing.
Thanks for visiting me.

I’m thinking there are books about everything happening backwards. Most people have a garage on their home, and then some turn it into a nice recreation or another room of some sort. When we bought our house, the previous owners had turned the attached garage into a room, put in a fireplace and then built another garage that isn’t attached. However, they didn’t do the best of jobs. They didn’t plan well at all, they didn’t raise the floor to match the rest of the house (maybe a good thing after all), and an important thing they left out when they did the fireplace was to first put in a footer. So, that is where I get to the part of my story about things happening backwards. After these 30 plus years, the fireplace and chimney weight was pushing the outside wall off the house foundation. So, we had the fun of tearing it all down, brick by brick and then replacing the wall. Plus side is that it will be turned into a garage again. One room minus and one garage a plus, I think.
So this is my month in photos for sharing over at Mona’s Picturesque (be sure to scroll down on her page to find the link of sharings on there by people). Christmas did happen in there, but not a big celebration this year since we were in a mess and the kids had other places to go so it worked out for the better.
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas (and did not have to deconstruct rather than construct)…haha…and so far that the New Year is treating you well.
Pop on over to Mona’s to see how others spent their December.

My word for 2015. It was the first time ever that I’d picked a word to concentrate on for the year. I felt that I’d lost some of the Joy of every day life. I’m not sure if people have always picked a word for the year, but it was new and a first to me.
My Word: Joy ~ it can be found in small and large ways. The large Joy in my life continues to be the gift of children. My prayer was always that they’d be safe, they’d grow to be strong, confident and capable people. They have. The next large Joy has been the blessing of grandbabies.
The small Joys can be found in everyday life. A call from an adult child just because they want to talk to mom. A puppy that thinks he runs the show, but loves to snuggle when you need it. A husband that can make me laugh, and has a way of making me always remember the reasons I love him (even if he doesn’t realize he’s doing it.)
The Joy of a sunshiny day when your heart just feels right with the world. A grandchild that climbs up in the rocker with me even though we’ve kind of just met. She trusts because her daddy told her we’re visiting grandma/grandpa. An adult son who gives one of the best gifts a mom could receive. A son who lives in another state miles away who unselfishly gives the time out of his life to come stay and help an ailing father, and brings his daughter so she can get to know us better.
These are just some of the Joys that I documented in my thankful journal for 2015.
JOY is everywhere if you just notice.
My word picked for 2016: RENEW
Create in my a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psa. 51:10 KJV
Thank you for all who gave a like or a comment or just visited my pages during 2015.
Happy New Year and wishing all a Wonderful and Blessed 2016.
