When it comes to praying I can have good intentions and a bad memory.
There are so many things I can pray for, but if I don’t write myself a note (or am reminded regularly) I forget certain requests when I pray. Lately I’m trying to remember certain prayer requests on a regular basis, especially since there are so many things that need prayers today.
The Christians in Iraq are one of them, so I made myself a printable to remind me to pray for them, and thought you might like to join me.
It’s an outline of Iraq with the Nun symbol on it. The top flick of the symbol sits over Mosul where most of the problem has been occurring. I’ve found the simple reminder of pray encouraging me to do just that more often over the week.

So how you remember to cover prayer requests?
If you prefer having a professional print, I’ve put the print up in my Society 6 shop. I do make some money from each sale in my Society 6 shop, but the reason I made it available in both ways is so you can get a copy in the way that you prefer and will work best for YOU.
Just when you think life is getting routine, something busts it up.
Our dog, Cody, asked to go out on the back porch today and we figured it was to soak up some rays. He loves the sun so much we joke about him being solar powered.
But Cody doesn’t walk around sniffing all over the back porch. For about 10 minutes straight.
Curious we went out and peered down figuring it was a bunny under there, we tried to see anything underneath, but couldn’t. Thank goodness we didn’t jump or make loud noises, because apparently we have a skunk at home down there.
Of course I decided it was a perfect chance to sketch one:
The only question I have is, how do we get rid of it?
I stepped into the waters of DIY yesterday. Usually it doesn’t work to well for me, but this time I was pleasantly surprised.
Science projects never seemed to turn out quite right, as well as the simple a-line skirt pattern I tried… I don’t know how many times. So I tend to be cautious when I try DIY projects.
But when I saw this tutorial by Sea Lemon I wanted to try it.
I recently filled my last sketchbook (yes, almost every page is chock-full, and it surprised me too). Since I needed a new one, but didn’t want to buy one right now, and I decided to use a floppy sketchbook to make me a small book-like one.
One that could hopefully fit my next picture book. I’ve been working on ideas, but writers block has been messing with me and so I hoped that having a small sketchbook that’s like it’s own picutre book could help me.
Okay, I admit it. I like cold weather. Don’t look at me like that.
It never fails I tell people I like fall and winter – still like snow though shoveling mounds of it isn’t that fun – and they get all arms crossed “I’m shivering because I’m cold just thinking about it” kind of look.
Anyway. I don’t mind what weather you like, but me and my sis thought this sketch would be an appropriate “Happy Fall!”
Hi, everyone! Don’t have much more time then for a brief sketch. And the picture that inspired the brave, Lieutenant Gret. With a wave of his super feather finger he moves armies to do his bidding. (you simply must read that in an impressive voice)
He’s based on this cool picture I found of an egret – hence his highly imaginative name I might add!
