Thanksgiving Annie

Blessings in Rust 
Thanksgiving Annie
A Thanksgiving Psalm

On your feet now - applaud God!
Bring a gift of laughter, 
sing yourselves in His presence.

Know this: God is God, and God, God.
He made us; we didn't make Him.
We're his people, his well-tended sheep.

Enter with the password:  "Thank you!"
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank Him, Worship Him.

For God is sheer beauty, 
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.
Psalm 100  The Message
trying to get back to my normal schedule

Let It Snow ~*~ Let It Snow

I am keeping busy in the "factory"
with new Annies for Christmas
this is a new winter Annie
I am trying to read a chapter from
The Message every morning.
hope you don't mind if I share
"Know this: God, your God, is God indeed,
a God you can depend upon.  He keeps his
covenant of loyal love with those who love Him
and observe His commandments for a
thousand generations."
Deuteronomy 7:9 The Message
Wishing all an amazing week

Friends Gather Here ~ eye painting help

I've been asked many times how 
I do Annie's eyes ~ hope this helps
first I use a button to draw two perfect circles
then paint the circles (eyes) with Gesso
 I use acrylic paint for Annie's eye color
then give her eyes highlights using white paint
when dry I place the black pupil (using end of a brush)
and with a stylus the white accent
I stitch her eye lashes and 
outline her eyes with Prismacolor pencils
my newest Annie is in autumn colors
she has a hand stitched heart ornie
to match her dress ~
even a tiny burgundy dragonfly
busy watching my grandchildren
even having a sleepover this Friday
 hope to have a chance 
to work in the factory on Saturday
if I am not too exhausted   :)
God is good, He is good all the time!
Thanking Him for my family.
thanks for visiting
God bless.
