WOYWW: Last Week's Post


I had problems with my computer last week, so here is last week's post for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I couldn't resist showing you this hand lettered box that my brother made to package one of his gifts...


a mini folder decorated with some pretty weaving (although I must have shown it to you before)...


a painting my sister Patsy gave me last Christmas, or was it my birthday?...


and one of journal illustrations...


That is such a blurry picture!  Anyway, I love this verse from Romans 1:7.  This is how I see myself - beloved of God and called to holiness (well, I'm working on it!)

Have a blessed week, everyone!

WOYWW: WIP


There's nothing interesting on my main desk so for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, I'm featuring my prayer desk, all nice and tidy with my bible opened up to a WIP illustration.


And to show you what I've been up to this past week, here's a picture of me and my hubby during our office costume party.


What about you?  What have you been up to?

WOYWW: Sewing Mode

It's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday time and there's not much to see on my desk, just my sewing box and a few pieces of clothing.  I often stitch red thread in the labels of my clothes to help our laundry woman differentiate them from my daughter's clothes. 



Lots of you liked the WOYWW sign my son made and were surprised that he actually knew about WOYWW.  I was surprised, too!



Here's a page from my prayer journal that I made last Christmas season.  It's what Christmas is really all about, isn't it?  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW: Happy New Year!


This was my post for last week but I didn't get to post it.  My desk is just as messy today so I just decided to post this.

Something's new on my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, and it's not just the New Year! My eldest son surprised me with a wooden laser cut WOYWW sign that he made himself! Isn't it great?

May this New Year bring abundant blessings and answered prayers to all of you!

WOYWW: A Blessed Christmas!



Oh my, even my prayer desk has been taken over by gift wrapping supplies! I haven't been drawing or painting but I did some decorating!...


Have a blessed Christmas, dear blog friends!

WOYWW: Advent

It's that time of the week again! Time for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. What a difference a week makes, huh?   This is what my desk looks like today. I've been busy wrapping Christmas gifts. There's my box of ribbon scraps and gift wrapper...


In the midst of all the preparations of buying and wrapping Christmas gifts, putting up the tree and other decorations, I have to remind myself to observe Advent"a season observed in many Western Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas... The season offers the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming."  After all, as they say, "Jesus is the reason for the season."  


Have a happy week ahead!

WOYWW WOW


I call this my WOYWW WOW edition because this is the biggest area of clear desk I've had in a while! Without those newly purchased books at the far end, it would be even tidier! Wow, it's like the calm before the storm, considering I'll soon be wrapping Christmas gifts. I'm feeling so satisfied with myself... And so ready to mess up my desk again!

That's it for What on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW: Purr-fect


I just got back from a trip to Bacolod, an hours flight south of Manila. My desk was filled with stuff I unpacked and someone was curious about the mess! Her name is Truffles (from the chocolates, not the mushrooms.)

One of the sights we visited in Bacolod is called The Ruins or the Taj Mahal of Negros (because it was built in memory of a beloved wife). There's a glass topped table on the grounds of this place and if you take a picture with it, you'll get this interesting reflection effect...


And that's it for this edition of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW: Something New

There's a new project on my desk...


And here's something I made with a new app I downloaded...



It's called MotionPortrait and animates portraits!  Such fun! 

This will be a short post for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Oh, this is something new as well!  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW: Mess!

It's not surprising. My desk is a mess.


But good and beauty that can still come out of this mess.

Seems like the world is also in such a mess. The terrorist attacks in Paris are just some of the ways we're in a mess. 

And yet, good and beauty can still come out of the mess we are in. There were stories of people opening their homes to strangers the night of the attacks. And in a Facebook post, survivor Isobel Bowdery shared how in the midst of the chaos, she witnessed numerous acts of heroism...

"To the man who reassured me and put his life on (the) line to try and cover my brain whilst I whimpered, to the couple whose last words of love kept me believing the good in the world, to the police who succeeded in rescuing hundreds of people, to the complete strangers who picked me up from the road and consoled me during the 45 minutes I truly believed the boy I loved was dead, to the injured man who I had mistaken for him and then on my recognition that he was not Amaury, held me and told me everything was going to be fine despite being all alone and scared himself ... you make me believe this world has the potential to be better,'' 
While on the ground during the shooting, Isobel pretended to be dead, closed her eyes and imagined the faces of her loved ones as she waited for a bullet to end her life.
"Wishing that those I love knew just how much, wishing that they knew that no matter what happened to me, to keep believing in the good in people...To not let those men win. Last night, the lives of many were forever changed and it is up to us to be better people. To live lives that the innocent victims of this tragedy dreamt about but sadly will now never be able to fulfill."


Praying for Paris and the world.
