WOYWW: Jesus is my Brother!

I woke up late today
and this is how my desk looked. 
Remnants of the cover I made
for my 2013 journal.

I had fun making this, 
looking for scraps of lace and 
embroidered Indian cloth.
I removed some buttons
and bits and pieces from nice old clothes.
I think I will post a tutorial
on later this week.

And here is my journal drawing yesterday.
In Hebrews 2:5-12 we can read that 
Jesus was not ashamed to call us brothers and sisters.

I can't help but think of my brother
Robert, who is the best brother ever!
A couple of weeks ago I asked him to teach me 
how to "shade" flesh,
 and he took the time to show me.

Jesus did not just give us teachings,
He showed us how to love,
to sacrifice,
to be forbearing,
to pray, etc.

Jesus is wonderful to have
as a brother and a friend!

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

This week, chose
#42, Queenie Jeannie of 
She makes fabulous cards
but claims she has no talent!
Does not make any sense to me!!

I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it so much!

Joining the lovely Julia for a 
peek at desks and projects!
I love blog parties!
Won't you join us?

Sometimes I put on my best pajamas 
and party here:

  15. That is a beautiful journal. I do art but am afraid my journals are the spiral bound blue ones - cheap. I guess I should spend more time doing art because I love it. Priorities... organization. And your art desk gave me hope..
    I will pop over to later.
