One of my newest things to do is Zentangle. I call it creative doddling. I never was a doddler. I might write my name all over something, but I didn't "draw" anything. Then one night I was looking around the internet and came across Zentangles. It looked interesting. And the article I was reading said it would improve your concentration, improve your handwriting and eye/hand coordination,helps with problem solving, improves relaxation and confidence. The website talked about certified Zentangle teachers. I put Alabama in the search option and figured that no one in Alabama would be teaching this. Much to my surprise, we have one certified Zentangle teacher here in town. I contacted her and the rest is history. I will say that my focus and concentration is much better. My handwriting has improved and I really enjoy creating tangles. It has increased my creative side which is a good thing. So look on line at Zentangle. It really is a great thing to do. I am going to post a picture of one I did.
Until next time, stay pretty.

New bracelet and necklace

I am posting a better picture of the 12 tribes or Salvation bracelet.
12 Tribes Bracelet 12 SONS OF ISRAEL/JACOB So He named him Israel. God also said to him: I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply. A nation, indeed an assembly of nations, will come from you, and kings will descend from you. The land that I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you. And I will give the land to your descendants after you. Genesis 35:10-12 The Twelve Tribes of Israel are the sons of Jacob. God renamed Jacob Israel. His twelve sons became to the Nation. The breastplate of the High Priest had four rows of stones and the Hebrew letters of the Twelve Tribes/Sons of Israel inscribed on them. The breastplate was first worn by the High Priest Aaron, and subsequently worn by every High Priest in the Temple while performing holy duties. There were 12 precious stones mentioned in the Book of Exodus. The Twelve Tribes and stones are as follows: Carnelian-Dan; Topaz-Simeon; Red Garnet-Judah; Emerald-Levi; Sapphire-Issacher; Crystal-Zebulun; Opal-Ruben; Agate-Nephtali; Amethyst-Gad; Aquamarine-Asher; Onyx-Joseph; Jasper-Benjamin The 12 silver spacers represent the 12 tribes of Israel that were written on the 12 gates (Rev 21:12) The Cross symbolizes Jesus. For whoever is thirty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Rev 21:17) With Him we will find our strength, through Him we will have eternal life. The colored beads symbolize the 12 precious stones that decorated the 12 foundations of the city walls. (Rev 21:19) Go now and live in love. Spread the seed of faith as He has requested, for He is coming soon! (Rev 21:20) I am also posting a picture of a necklace for my BFF Tijuana Buchanan of Senatobia, MS. Her husband Joe made the beads. I hope she enjoys wearing this.
So till next time, stay pretty.

Back again

Seems that I sort of got sidetracked by life and haven't posted in awhile. So now I'm back and posting again. My Mother saw a bracelet called a "Salvation Bracelet" or The Twelve Tribes Bracelet. It was based on the book of Revelations in the Bible. So I did a little research and made one for her for Mother's Day. She is enjoying wearing it. Here is a picture of it along with the references that make up the bracelet. I apolgize for the picture not being large enough to be seen. If you'd like a better look at it, email me and I'll send you a better copy.
I have also been busy making several things that I sold for Mother's Day. I'll post pictures of those later. Everyone have a good week. Stay pretty.
