WOYWW: Friendship & Family

Did you know that yesterday, July 30, was International Day of Friendship? The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.  "On this International Day of Friendship, let us cultivate warm ties that strengthen our common humanity and promote the well-being of the human family."- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

I think What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday is a fine example of friendship between peoples and countries!  Thank you, dear WOYWW friends for your friendship.  Maybe we should find out how many countries are represented in this UN of desks!  What country are you from?

And among my best friends are the members of my family!  I am blessed to have three sisters and one brother.  All of us sisters work together and as some of you may know, my sister, Patsy (who actually introduced me to WOYWW) and I live right next to each other!

Happy WOYWW, dear blog friends!

WOYWW Prayer Journals

For What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, I have a different desk to show you.  It is my bedside desk which I cleared to make space for my quiet time in the morning, including my basic watercolors and colored pencils for the illustrations I like to make when meditating on a bible verse.  I don't always get to finish them in the morning, so here you see I've been coloring some past day's illustrations.

I received a wonderfully colorful ATC from Neil and here it is on top of my journal.  You can't see it from this photo but it has an amazingly shiny finish that makes it look like stained glass or ceramic tile. Thanks, Neil!  I'll get your ATC to you as soon as possible!

For more desks and the projects on them, visit Julia's Stamping Ground for the WOYWW list.  Happy crafting, everyone!

WOYWW Word Art Wednesday

Hello, dear blog friends!  Here is a small part of my desk (the only part where you can still see the desk).   There's a Fiskars Multi-Snip that I bought on sale for the equivalent of £3.90.

Here is a progress report from World Vision for a child we are helping.  For less than £10 a month, you can help a child and his community have "access to: education, health care, nutritious food, clean water, livelihood opportunities and more."

And for those who enjoy my prayer journal illustrations, here is one that encourages me to carry out God's commands...

Sharing this in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and Word Art Wednesday!

WOYWW: Hurried Art

Thank you, What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, if not for you, my desk would have nothing new!  But since I am supposed to post a picture of my desk, I hurriedly paint and post what I've painted!  Notice the hair dryer? That's so that the watercolors don't run into each other in the rush of trying to get something done for WOYWW!

So this is what I finished today, just in time for Word Art Wednesday!  Sharing this in Paint Party Friday as well.

WOYWW: After a Tidy Up

I finally found some time to tidy up the piles on my desk (I'm not saying anything about the floor, though).  So today, you can actually see my desk!  I'm editing a photo on my iPad for Instagram...

and finishing an illustration in my prayer journal...

Indeed, these words are meaningful for me because it was as a young college student that I sought the Lord and His wisdom.  It made all the difference in my life and I am grateful.
