WOYWW 93 My Alphabet Box



Here's my journal page for today.
Psalm 51 is so appropriate for Lent.
Sometimes we think God wants sacrifices from us,
but what He really wants is our heart.

I decided not to show you the same messy old space.
Here is my alphabet box, which I use whenever
I make collages with words, like the one above.
Do you think I'm crazy for
cutting up all these letters?
I have fabric, leather, cardboard, even a small silver E
aside from all the magazine cutouts in my E envelope.
In some envelopes I even have punched clay letters.

Thank you to Julia of Stamping Ground.
I doubt I'd post once a week if not for WOYWW,
especially as I'm still feeling poorly.
Thank you to all who dropped by and all your good wishes!
They are much appreciated.LinkDrop by Julia to see some interesting desks and
projects in the making!

  7. Good organisation is never wasteful of time or resources! Trusting that you will feel better but it will be in God's time, won't it? Meanwhile, rest in his love.

  23. I don't have enough patience to follow your example with the letters. Most of mine are just produced on the PC, where I can move them around digitally.

  24. Good morning Patsy. Thank you for your kind words and your prayers. We have all been praying the sickness will end soon for her. It's taken lots of prayers to get her pregnant in the first place and now it's twins we thought all our prayers had been answered but it would just be really nice if she could feel well enough to get excited about them. Thank you for caring.
    Hugs,

  25. Oh my goodness, it must have taken you ages 9years?) to collect all those letters, but I bet it makes life so much easier now that you have them.
    Happy belated WOYWW and hope you feel on top of the world real soon.
