Sorry I haven't blogged much lately. There has been so much going on, that I don't think I can even talk about it all here. Some very important things:
1. Putting our house up for sale. We're talking to a real estate agent this weekend. We're going to try and move into a smaller house to cut down on our mortgage. We really want to be debt free!
2. Depressed about legality of my making stuffed animals. I won't be able to sell on-line anymore. I was actually making enough money with them to help with our income. I'm going to have to get over it I guess, and figure something else out.
3. Husband undergoing tests on his back to determine what can be done to relieve his pain.
4. Working on a painting for my church. They are making a room for people to pray in, specifically about redemption. When they talked about it in church last Sunday, an idea for a painting flashed into my head....now I just have to get that on canvas. I have never painted Jesus before and it is strange. It's disturbing with him being on the cross and me putting him there with my paints. I keep thinking, He's not really on it anymore! He's alive! This painting signifies to me his sacrifice and suffering for all the things evil and wrong. The buildings below are made from mewspaper articles. Anyway, there is a lot of feeling as I'm doing this.
I've gotten it all drawn out, now I just need to actually paint it. It's cold in the garage!!
