Washi Wonder(ful)!

Monday, October 9, 2017



I use washi tape every day. Yes, without fail! Why? I use it to decorate the Scriptures I write out. (See this link with more information on the Scripture writing challenge I set up each month.) I have had a few people on Instagram ask me where I get my washi. Some of it comes from Michael's, but  a lot of it comes from Amazon.  Here's a look at some of my favorites...

I love the seasons, and seasonal washi with a botanical bent (I love to garden) is my new favorite type of washi design. I recently bought this set that has three different seasons in it, but I can see where it could be used year round...



Here's the link to it on Amazon.  It contains spring, autumn, and winter patterns, but the green and blue patterns would work for summer also. Here's a look at some pages I did with this collection...




Here are some other sets I either have or want to get in the future...

Geometric washi is fun...



Geometric washi



This circle, triangle, and square pattern comes in different colors: Pink/Orange, Blue/Green


I adore birds!  Here are several bird-themed washi tapes: birds on a wire, bird collection, birds and cages.


Here's a set of washi gardening tape that I use a lot. It mainly has succulents in the design.

I love this nighttime gold and silver washi! It is on my to-buy list for this winter.

If you love coffee (like I do) this washi is cute!!





And because I love the watercolor effect, I am looking to add this watercolor design set with eight different colors.
Finally, if you are looking for creative ideas on what to do with washi, see my Pinterest board.




Trust {Think On These Things}

Monday, September 18, 2017

I have serious trust issues. SERIOUS. I can't even explain the depths of it. Maybe it is because I am a survivor of abuse. Maybe it's the anxiety I battle on a constant basis. Or was it that time that friend betrayed me so much so my life changed forever? I am not sure where it all started, but I am here to say to trust is akin to torture for me. Slowly, over the past decade, God has confirmed my fears. I can't trust people. Circumstances aren't an anchor to hold onto. Financial stability is just a wave in the ocean. As I look around, there is seemingly no one and no thing to put my trust in. And maybe that is the point. My trust was never meant to be given to anyone or anything except the One. Will you join me in October as we write out verses related to trust? We will take a look at whom/what not to trust. We will peek into the life of Christ to see how even His closest friends failed Him. We will see how Christ trusted people (or not). I hope you will join me! See below to find out how you can follow along on Instagram day by day.

Women of the Bible {Think On These Things}

Monday, August 21, 2017


{Affiliate links used}


Some are midwives. And others are mothers. A prostitute and a queen. A foreigner. A women caught in a terrible sin. A childless women begging for children. They come from all walks of life...each with a story to tell. A story not so much about themselves as one that involves the God who penned the plot of their lives. Behind every women of faith stands the God who loves her without fail and without measure. In September, I am planning on focusing on these women and seeing how God decided to work in their lives. Want to join me? Pick up a pen and a journal and let's write out these verses about these courageous women who have an amazing God.

The Holy Spirit {Think On These Things}

Monday, July 17, 2017


{Affiliate Links Used}

He is the most "neglected" of the Three. We seem to not know Him well. Maybe it's because we think He is the last to show up on the scene (which is actually not true). Or could it be that He seems to be the most mysterious? God, the Creator and our Father, makes sense to us. Jesus, in human form, is someone we can relate to, but the Holy Spirit? Who is He? What does He do? How can we relate to Him? How does He try to relate to us? This month I have chosen verses about the Holy Spirit, the most unknown of the Trinity. I have to admit I find Him the hardest to picture in my mind, to relate to, to understand. Let's take this coming month to find out more about Him. Grab your Bible, a pen, and a journal. We will write out these Scriptures and meditate on who He is. See below for a downloadable file of the verses and other tips to help you this coming month.

Focus {Think On These Things}

Monday, June 19, 2017

We follow what we focus on. We become what we behold. We long for what we look at. However, you express it doesn't matter. The point is we all have priorities and tend to pursue those things we put forefront in our minds. The problem happens when we allow the wrong goals, things, or people to take precedence over our lives. Throughout God's Word there is a theme of FOCUS. What we set as important in our minds and what we focus on with our eyes become the things we run after. If you look closely at Scripture you will see a plethora of examples of how the focus of a person dictated the course of his or her life: Lot's wife, Jehoshaphat facing his enemies, and even Peter walking on water. So let's take a look at how our focus can change our lives. Grab a pen and a journal (see my suggestions below) and let's copy God's Word!
