WOYWW: Aspirations

Nothing much on my desk today except an outdated calendar I bought on sale.  I bought it because I thought the sturdy pages and spring binding would make it good to alter but I realized it also makes for an interesting read because it's about "Women Who Dare."  Its introduction starts, 

"'Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations,' wrote Louisa May Alcott. 'I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.'  The women featured in this edition of Women Who Dare followed their own aspirations, despite often daunting impediments..."

As for me, my aspiration is to be like the woman in Psalm 1...

Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.

WOYWW: Floor Plans and a Desk Ornament

There's serious business on my desk today for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  You may not know this, I am an architect.  I am planning something for a friend of mine. No AutoCAD for me, just plain graphing paper and tracing paper! First draft...

I though you would like to see my "desk ornament" in my office desk.  Good thing I work in a family business.  This certainly won't pass the 5S workplace organization method!

And for Word Art Wednesday, a wonderful verse from Philippians...

Great to remember and claim when what we have to do seems too much for our own strength!  Have a great week, dear blog friends!  Thank you for your visits!

Nothing much on my prayer desk today except the start of my illustration for today and the usual watercolors and pencil box with my "basics" - a pencil, Pigma Microns (.02 and .05), a Faber-Castell CX5 pen for my journal reflections, a white Uni-ball Signo  and colored pencils to make my prayer journal illustrations like these...

Nothing new in my desk but we've got a new baby in the house!  His name is Oreo!...

So I'm off to play with him!  Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday and Word Art Wednesday!

WOYWW: Textiles from my Travels

Happy Wednesday, dear blog friends!  Obviously, I haven't recovered from my recent trip to Laos and Thailand and my desk is filled with some of the wonderful textile crafts I got there.  From Laos, the detail of one of the bags I bought with awesome applique from the Hmong tribe which comes from the back of their traditional shirt...

Some pillow shams with applique...

Embroidered throw pillow covers and a woven bag...

and a box covered in Thai silk...

And that's what's on my desk today for What's on our Workdesk Wednesday.  For Word Art Wednesday...

I didn't get to do much visiting last week but I am thankful for all your visits.  I'm hoping I can find the time this week.  Til next week, be blessed!
