What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Back to Normal


For WOYWW this week, gone is the spotless desk and it's back to normal after my trip to Korea last week (and this is after I already tried to tidy it up).  Today's prayer journal page in progress is about the Fruit of the Spirit.  As I drew and colored, I reflected in the ways I have grown in these areas and in the many other ways I still need to grow...


Here are some cheap paint brushes from Korea...


and as promised, I had Mr. Random pick a winner for my giveaway and he picked...


Gill , who said... "I love the first one - 'seek and ye shall find'" and so I will be sending her this painting as soon as I get her address...


In case you are interested, here are some photos from Korea (with apologies to Julia for my long post)...




It happened to be the Korean Traditional Performing Arts Festival and there were a lot of performances and exhibits.  Here is a booth where you could paint some masks...


and here is a Korean felting artist in her studio in Bukchon...


I went to the artsy "Free Market"near the Hongik University where artists and crafters display and sell their original works on Saturday afternoons from March to November.


From October 1 to 7, it was also the Hi Seoul Festival 2012, "a spectacular assortment of outdoor performances by Korean and overseas street art groups."

Happy WOYWW, dear blog friends!

These photos of Korea are very intriguing. I so enjoyed seeing the artists from other countries. It's amazing what different cultures create and how different some of their crafts are. No "TIM HOLTZ" stuff there, I bet (grin). Happy WOYWW from # 2.

I love your journal page - so beautiful and thought provoking.

The photos of Korea are great -- I love seeing photos of places that I'll more than likely never get to visit. There sure was a lot going on while you were there.

Happy WOYWW
