week four

just a few adjustments :) i tied some things up that were hanging low, and added some darker fabric and ribbons......things are going to get progressively darker as we head forward to Good Friday. i have so much fun doing this- i know alot of folks don't even notice it.....but i do, and somehow i hope it points others to Jesus.

week three

so this week, I kind of moved everything around a bit, and added some more purplely goodness. there's less 'swooping' than last week. funny, I always tell myself that "I'll make it smaller this time" but nope, I can't help myself, it seems :) it does inhabit a really big space way up in the in the weeks to follow, it will start getting progressively 'darker' in nature.....until the Holy Week influence when it almost makes me cry to put it together.....ah, the tender heart :)

week two

thought I'd try a night picture and see if that helps.....not so much. I added a few strands of some thing called 'tree tape' that I found at the good will- it looks like crumpled brown paper bag ribbon- love it! And of course a few more purple ribbons and fabrics. I will try to get a better shot hopefully sometime soon. good grief. so embarrassed.

my favorite Parament......

Ash Wednesday

Well, this is my offering for Ash Wednesday and the first week of Lent. Seriously, I need to figure out how to photograph these things better! It's so much prettier in person. I am going to add to/change it a little each week as we go through the next 6 weeks. I think that this year I'm going to commit to 'adding' something rather than 'giving up' something......more random acts of kindness sounds good to me. Gettin' my ash in church tomorrow :)

happy day of love

of course, every day is a day we can love and be loved- because He first loved us! thankful for family and friends who love me, and for my Jesus who loves me unconditionally. hope you're able to give some love away today!

hey there! guess i kinda went 'awol' on my blog....sorry about that. here's my latest Advent offering at church- just took it down yesterday and put up a smaller green one....looking forward to Lent :) you can't see it very well in the photo, but the dark blue swags are actually plastic table cloths- the cheapo ones from the dollar store! they drape very nicely, and of course, cheap is often better in mass quantities :) you also can't see the small mirror tiles i glued to fishing leader, that sparkle in the light. AND the LED star on the very bottom, which was on a timer that i set to come on during the evening services. All very pretty, imho :) there's a whole lotta glittery ribbon on here can always tell when i've been messing around with the centerpiece because it looks like a 
glitter bomb' went off on the floor :)  (and my floor at home, where i rewind the ribbons before storing them.......bonus deal! heh heh) God Bless!

Happy Fall

So, aside from needing to be a better's my latest offering for the Sanctuary. I wanted something smaller, and while this LOOKS like it might be for Pentecost, I'm calling it "fall" :) (although most of the elements are from my Pentecost 'stash' ) It won't be too long before the Advent one goes up.....and of course I tend to go over the top on that one. Just sayin'.
