Take Heart

Oh, I am getting in the spirit. Presents ordered started arriving in the mail and I am feeling like I will have a present for everyone by the time Christmas is here. It has been debatable up to this point. It may still be touch a go for a while.

Today is normally laundry day but I ran out of detergent and the weather was bad enough that I didn't want to go out so I went to my art room which I have renamed "My Happy Place". I didn't like the way the background was going on this canvas and as I was getting ready to go to a massage appointment I got an idea. Then my massage therapist called and was stuck at home because of the weather. Hallelujah! I went right out to my happy place and started on my new idea. Here is a picture of what it became. The canvas is 8 X 8 and these two little girls are so cute. The little one has her hand on her head like OH NO! The verse right below her says, "Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." A verse near and dear to my own heart. Oh, happiness is flowing right now.

Oh so cute-I love it!
Yes, go to your happy place often...
I'm glad the gifts are arriving, it makes me nervous when people do that-ha.

Oh, I love it too! Especially the clouds & house with text - I love that kind of texture.
