Why are owls so wise? Does anyone know why? Are they wiser than the average bird?? Well, it's a message I need to keep reminding myself of, since I tend to lean on my own understanding a little too much at times. Thank God He knows it all and I don't!

Daisies in Progress

Here's what I'm working on today: Three very large gerber daisies. The petals will be lavender. I decided to paint them on black matboard, so that there would be black space all around the painted parts - a neat effect - but it's taking alot of paint! It was alot of cutting too. My matboard-cutting muscles really got a workout! These flowers are each about 3 feet wide. I'm making them for a friend who is putting on a women's retreat. They will be part of the decorations. Each one is going to have a key verse in the middle.


Got some pencil sketches of a family here. Just their faces for now. If anyone recognizes them, send me an e-mail!

School Carnival

Our school, Lemme Elementary puts on a carnival every fall as a fun fundraising event. This year I'm helping put together an arts and craft table. We'll be decorating masks and creating sand bracelets. I've been sorting through my stockpiles of random fun doodads in search of stuff I'm willing to donate. Here's a sample of what I've come up with so far.
If any of you local artsy craftsy people have anything you're wanting to get rid of in the way of craft supplies: feathers, pipe cleaners, glitter, stickers, foam pieces, sequins, silk flowers, "gems," ribbons, or other random bitsies please send them my way. Just email me at paperprayers@hotmail.com and I'll come and get them!

Special Order

Here's a special order I did recently: It's a house warming gift for a family who picked up and moved to follow God's leading to do mission work. I incorporated their family's special verse that has been their theme during this time. Hope they like it!

Lazy Days of Summer

Although this summer has gone fast, it's been a slow summer art-wise. It seems like I've been working on the same batch of stuff for forever. That's what having 3 boys at home will do to ya! I'm so sick of looking at this stuff and ready to move on to something new. Here are a few of the finished pieces:
