Girls Birthday parties are so much fun especially when a craft is involved! Paint, glitter, rhinestones, oh yea!
Darby is one of my little friends from my church family and I couldn't resist the opportunity to help make her 8th birthday party 'creatively' special...especially knowing how much Darby loves arts and crafts.
Here's Darby, the happy birthday girl.
First we made scrabble tile pendants (you can find my tutorial here). The scrabble tiles were fairly quick to make, but needed at least 3 hours to dry.
Happy Birthday Darby! XO
I was honored when Lois gave me this set of note cards. They are absolutely beautiful...and this is a photograph of prints of paintings she had done! Imagine the originals!
Printed on the back of each card, is says:
"God has given us so much beauty all around us-
the azure skies, the evening sunset that bursts with color to tint the mountains;
Fields splashed with color and the birds singing praises to their Maker!
I try to reflect some of this beauty in my paintings, with thanks and
praise to the Great Creator of "all things beautiful"! Ecl. 3:11
Lois told me that she was writing down the story of her life. She said, "Do you know what I'm calling it? My First 90 Years".
I love it! It puts everything into perspective and reminds me of heaven with our Heavenly Father where we will be basking in the beauty of our Lord for all eternity!...a Perfect Picture!
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. Ecclesiastes 4:11
