      Going digital doesn't mean you have to stop, lol.😃 I design Faith-Journaling collections. You can go full digital, or print and do  hybrid. :) I also do "actual" journaling- in all three ways; Art Journal(as in notebook), Journaling Bible, and digital/hybrid.  @alsoarty

  14. Such a beautiful day- going to do some art and chill with DH the rest of the day!

  15. We had a TERRIFIC family time on Sat.eve with DD, DS, DIL, DH and myself.We went to an Ethiopian restaurant in Charlotte. The food was very good, and we had a cultural exchange. Everything was on ONE huge platter and you ate it without silverware! Injera, a flat, spongy, floppy bread was you tool It was hilarious! See my FB page for pics!

    1. Debbie Cleek

      Sounds great! I really like Ethoipian food.

    2. diannecp


      i like Ethiopian food alright but can't do the injera stuff!

    3. AmandaK


      I have a confession. When I taught at Christ For The Nations in Dallas, there was a teacher's lunch where we each brought dishes from our nations.My son's teacher was from Ethiopia. She brought Injera. I tasted it and gagged. So when they brought our food, I was silently panicking. I didn't want to spoil our time together (DS gets very upset if I reject food at a restaurant), but I KNEW that stuff!! Thankfully I was able to eat it with the other dishes. But I prefer Indian...

  16. DD's BD is tormorrow. She is going out with a great young man from church. So happy for her!

    1. diannecp


      that has to make a mom smile!

  17. Oh, yeah, and we had decided that since DH finished his degree & didn't have schoolwork that we would sleep in a bit. Of course, the carpet layers in the place above us had other plans. rofl!!!

      So exciting when it's functional, right? Congrats & enjoy!

    4. AmandaK


      Yes, it is a relief, as I quit creating all together for awhile due to not wanting the mess to be a part of our place to relax together. Now everything is right at hand but still has a drawer or basket. yea!

  22. Good Morning SG! It is forecasted to be very beautiful and pleasant today. Plan to paint and hope to see our Maine Coon return- he has been missing for four days. :/

    1. lorac


      Oh my goodness. I hope he arrives home safe and sound. Sending some prayers your way.

    2. AmandaK
