About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

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.

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.
