Mixed Media Altered Book Art Journaling with Teens

BlogAndTellJanuary2013

I have a confession to make. I’m an art lover. If it were up to me, I would do art all day, and not get anything else done. When I was a kid, I doodled and daydreamed and created art to the exclusion of much else. It got me in trouble. My kids are acorns […]

Free December Desktop Calendar

I put up a lovely December desktop calendar and wallpaper for your computer over at the Homeschool Post yesterday. Did you miss it? No homeschool necessary. Any Bible-loving Christian who digs Christmas would enjoy it. Pardon my pixel dust. It was my first attempt at a desktop calendar that actually “took”. You might have to […]

Glass blowing and glass art are extremely interesting… and the team at Houston Studio Glass put on an exceptionally educational demonstration at their studio not far from downtown Houston back in February of 2004. Here are a few things we learned on our trip (mind you that the group of children who attended were between […]

Faith is the assurance of what we have not yet seen. It shapes our world-view and leads us to answers for all of life’s questions. It gives us purpose and hope. It sheds light on the proper way to conduct our lives and gives us a rich heritage with many mentors to help when we […]
