WOYWW: Illustrated Faith

Look what just arrived! A new "canvas" for my bible verse illustrations. This bible has wide margins that are great for journaling and illustrations...

I've been using my new brush pens. I need more practice!

Sharing this tidied up desk in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and my illustrations in Word Art Wednesday.

WOYWW: What!?

It's Wednesday already?! Oh my, I was tempted to clear up some space on my desk using the push back method just for a picture for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday! But it is so full that even that method can't work! That wire basket is filled with odds and ends bought when I was in Tokyo recently. I haven't finished putting them away.  Looking at this picture (and thinking of how horrified the neat WOYWWers will be) has given me the added push to tidy up!  I hope to show you a freshly cleaned desk next week!

At times, in life we also find ourselves in a mess and this verse from Ephesians tells us that we need to tidy up to get out of the mess.

WOYWW: Art Materials

My desk has new art materials from my trip to Tokyo, Japan...
a set of Zig Brush Pens...

and Japanese watercolors.

And here is one of my prayer journal illustrations...

my excuse for always buying art materials!

That's it for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and Word Art Wednesday.  Thank you for dropping by!

WOYWW: In Transit

I am in the Narita Airport waiting to board a plane back to Manila so my post for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday isn't really a Wednesday desk! This was my hotel desk before I packed up all this stuff. Can you spot my new Japanese watercolors?

WOYWW: Happy Birthday,Oreo!

My desk is filled with the detritus of my preparations for my fur baby's birthday party. (I learned that word detritus from Julia, also known as the Queen of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.)  

Oreo turned 1 year old last August 30 and I made him a birthday hat (and cat ears for myself), decorations with his name, and a tuna birthday cake.  I also prepared giveaways of cat food with stamped labels (of course, I told the humans that it was for cats!)

My very cooperative hubby put ears on the plates...

and decorated our mirror with a cat face!

We all had a paw-some time! Happy WOYWW, everyone!

WOYWW: Office Desk

I completely forgot that it was Wednesday today and time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday! So since I already left the house when I remembered, here is my office desk in Papemelroti.  You will see that we do not have a very serious office.  Oreo, our CEO (Cat Executive Officer), has taken over my desk...

climbing up...

to the highest position...

He's our stress reliever and inspiration for some of our products.

And when he's not on top, we can often find him inside his favorite red eco-bag...

WOYWW's Julia likes us to keep our posts short but like any proud fur baby mommy, I couldn't resist showing you this cutie!  Happy WOYWW!

I just got back (a few hours ago) from Bali, Indonesia and my main desk is as I left it...

but my prayer desk is now a dumping ground for my buys.  

I bought a lot of bamboo fans with various batik-like designs...

and some woven "Ikat" material.  That's "What's on My Workdesk (this) Wednesday!"

In Bali, there are a lot of arts and crafts and a lot of them are related to their Hindu religion, which is so much a part of their everyday lives.  Their homes have their own elaborate family temples,

and bamboo pole decorations at the entrance.

They prepare ceremonial offerings every day and you will find them all over as you walk along the streets...

As a Christian, this is the way I also want to be, with my faith lived out in my everyday life.  No little flower and fruit ceremonial offerings every day, but the offering of my time, talent, treasure - the offering of my whole life. 

Blessings to all of you and thank you for visiting me!

WOYWW: Painting

Yay, I've been painting! I cleared up my desk to make space for a 20" x 24" canvas that I started on last Friday...

and here it is today for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  

Then, last Saturday, my sister Patsy had a Paint Party in her house and I joined in...

We are making paintings that will be exhibited together with many more.  Our collective paintings will be entitled "We are God's Garden" from 1 Corinthians 3:9.

Hopefully, the garden of my life will be filled with flowers and not weeds! Sharing this in Word Art Wednesday.

Blessings to you, dear blog friends!

WOYWW: Destination Creativity

For  What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, my desk is in the middle of a tidy up. I rearranged my drawer...

and found stuff like these angel paper clips.

There was a sale in one of the second hand bookshops and I often visit and I found some great books for ₱35 (less than £ .50)!  Destination Creativity, The Pulse of Mixed Media, Objects of Reflection - lots of inspiration to be found in these books!  Creativity is my excuse for a messy desk!

And for my journal illustration for Word Art Wednesdaya reminder that in the midst of the mess that we sometimes find ourselves in, we can have the peace that Jesus gives.

Peace be with you, dear blog friends.

WOYWW: Happy 40th Anniversary Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon!

Last Sunday, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of our prayer community, Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon (The Joy of the Lord).  For our celebration, we all came in "Filipiniana" outfits and on my desk today for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday are some of the accessories I wore or considered to wear...

I wore a T'boli blouse with these beads I bought in General Santos City.

"The Tboli are one of the indigenous peoples of South Cotabato in Southern Mindanao" -Wikipedia.  The blouse is filled with wonderful applique and embroidery...

See the 40th anniversary logo my daughter designed?  And the banner that I designed...

"Starting out with 41 men and women in July 1975, the Ligaya now counts some 1,900 members (including children of all ages) from diverse socio-economic backgrounds bound by the common desire to live out the Christian life to the fullest and to serve the Church as a body." - LNP website

And so we celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness to us through all these years.  When we offer him whatever little we have, like the little boy and his 5 loaves and 2 fishes, our mustard seed faith can grow and become the largest of all garden plants...

Be blessed, dear blog friends!
