About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Advent Sunday - Second

The second candle is the Bethleham Candle or Candle of Preparation. God kept his promise of a Saviour who would be born in Bethleham. Preparation means to "get ready". Help us to be ready to welcome you, O God!

This is also a season of peace. Jesus came to bring us spiritual peace and is known as the Prince of Peace.

I'm enjoying your 'advent' series, in fact I thought of you before when I lit our advent candle!

Hi BJ, had to stop by to see what you are making! Love this page and your candle is so pretty. Is it paper?

Love this advent Sunday page - very nice. Have just spent a while looking through your Attitude of Gratitude of pages - they are all wonderful I kind of wish that I had taken part a bit more but I was so busy last month I think it would have stressed me out more than relaxed me! I love all of the pages - I think 21 is my favourite. Bet you are really pleased with yourself for completing it.
