II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Oh Goodie!

So, tonight I did one of my favorite pasttimes---I painted something! Brooklyn's birthday party is on Saturday and I needed something to put the little treats in. I know this is a little "over the top" for brown paper sack goodie bags...but I really enjoyed doing it and it only took me about 45 minutes total. Of course, it crushes me that they'll probably get thrown in the trash can in a matter of seconds...but oh well..it was fun for me...like therapy...so no loss. Anyway, didn't they turn out cute? I freehanded every bit of it! (you can see the paint is still wet!)

Those are great! Shops charge silly prices for fancy bags that aren't even personalised!

Love it! You could have your own little side business with all of your craftiness! If you have some spare time, and want to travel, I need some stuff made up for my son's party! :o) Can you do baseball stuff? :o)
