March 14, 2009 A Season For Everything- Part 1...


Summer Night At The Seashore...







Fall In Color Wonder...











Winter Snow In Our Mountains...











Spring Serenity...







These were created as the first series based on Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven..." We have summer, fall, winter, and spring...

They were lovingly created and framed for Sophia C.'s 1st birthday present.

I am excited about the spring and fall ones, especially, because I tried some different stuff and love the result. :-)

Have fun crafting/cutting away!!!

By the way, excuse me for not being around much... We have been having some technical difficulties with our computer and internet service, and we cannot seem to figure out what the problem is. Hope to get on again soon... If it lets me. :-)

March 1 and 3, 2009 Heart-Abandoned in The Way, The Truth, And The Life...


The Way, The Truth, The Life... This one is based on John 14:6 where Jesus says, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." It all started with another theme I had in mind. I did not finish that challenge theme, but did complete this one. It is the biggest papercut I have ever done measuring in at 8 1/2 by 11 inches. The rainbow at His clothing and in the words was the first part of color I completed on the piece, and I felt it was significant as I remembered that "Not only is He a Promise Maker... He is a Promise Keeper". Just think back to the story of Noah, and then glance throughout the Bible and history. God is faithful, and not unjust, and not only is He God, Savior, Lord, King of kings, Prince of Peace, etc... He also wants to be our FRIEND!!! I am in awe, and overwhelmed. Thank you, Jesus!!!



I Stand With Arms High And Heart Abandoned... (inspired by a song by the music group Hillsong United)... that is how I want and long to be, fully open, surrendered and trusting Jesus. He has my best in mind, His plans are perfect, so I want to trust Him as a child who knows she is completely safe in the arms of her loving Father. I long to be free to worship Him in spirit and in truth. I desire to know Him so much more...

And, by the way... I will be posting the papercuts at a smaller scale. If you desire to see it in the larger scale, just click on it.

Blessings to you!
