DPP/6-8, 2 postcrossing cards, currently reading...

My Daily Paper Prompt cards have been fun but I had to rush 2 of them this week. Prompt 6- Certification. I feel this is appropriate. (I got the image from this page. )

DPP7- Leftovers. I made this from a bunch of mop up paper and other various scraps around the kitchen table. 

DPP8- Faded. I read about a technique to paint something and then immediately spray it with water to let the paint fade and drip. I really like how this one came out and I will definitely experiment more with this technique.

   The mailbox has been pretty slow on personal mail this week but I did get some nice cards. (I hear Monday is going to be a good mail day ;) )  This card is from Sanne in Holland.

I received this card from Ines today. She is from Berlin.  I would love if my yard was this cute.

     As for reading, I just finished reading through the book of Hebrews in the Bible and I'm going to spend some time in Psalms for my devotional time. I'm also reading a book called "An Incomplete Education" (check out my Goodreads page if you want info). For school this summer, the staff and students are reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I just started but I think it will be a quick read. I ended up buying the hard cover in case Timmy would like to read it after (if it's appropriate.)   I have heard great things about this book. If you have read it, what did you think?

  1. Love reading your posts- there's always so much inspiration! :) Your cards are amazing and make me wanna try new things. :D Hopefully I can find some time soon. :) Oh, and I'm going to start Psalms soon too! I'm actually doing it with the boys... there's a neat book called "Draw to Learn" and one of the books they have is Psalms. I ordered one for each of the boys and am going to do my "doodling" in a separate journal. You should check it out... a bit expensive (I just ordered B's this week for $15 including shipping) but totally worth it! (There are 180 pages, high quality and spiral bound!) Will write you soon, chickie! I HOPE to have time this weekend- my homeschool planning is, like, 85% complete!
