Sandstone Coasters 50% Off - 4 Hour Sale

Sandstone Coasters at my Zazzle Shop are 50% Off until 5:00 CST Feb 26 with coupon code FFHSCOASTERS!

Didn't know I even carried coasters?  Well, I never really announced them, and up until today I had only added the apple design.  Many of my other designs I didn't think looked as spiffy with the fading that comes from printing on sandstone (I gather).  Plus, $10 seemed like a lot for a single coaster when I already sold tile coasters through my CafePress shop for $5.  But since these are being marked down to the same I've added some clover designs (which look alright faded, I think)...these should show up in my shop within the hour.

New Products Coming Soon!

CafePress just added PJs, key chains, necklaces and earrings!   So, now just have to add all the designs!  I'll be posting these here soon!

Lego Creations

I just discovered a Lego Maniacs linky party!  So excited to join in, because my lil' Lego Maniacs create so many cool things with legos that I love to share!

This week, I'll post a picture of a very cool rocket car my middle son made.  He was very proud of this, as you can tell.  :-)

And here's a close up.

Are your kids Lego Maniacs?
You can add your kids lego creations at the linky here.

while exploring the first)

Where Art Meets Math...

A friend shared this amazing video with me recently....

Isn't that cool? The artist who made that, Vi Hart - Mathemusician, has more amazing videos here.

I showed that to the kids (ages 6, and 2 year old was napping). They were ready to bail on it at first but then she started drawing and they were hooked. After it was finished they wanted to try it too.  So did I!

Here's what I drew...
(You wouldn't believe how hard it is to try to make
hearts in different sizes all the exact same shape...
Just makes me even more impressed that the
Mathemusician can do that with ELEPHANTS!)

And here's what my 6 year old drew...

My 7 year old drew some too, but he drew them on dark blue construction paper in pencil, and it doesn't photograph well.  Plus he's not finished.

Really enjoyed this and plan to do more!  You know, when I was a teen I thought of myself as a "creative person" (still do), and saw math and science as the polar opposite to that. But over the years I've learned that it isn't.  Math and science can be useful tools to help you express your creativity.

More Than All These Things....

I've been exploring One World One Heart...and enjoying meeting bloggers from around the world, and seeing some much beautiful art along the way.

But one line in from one of the blogs I visited, In The Light, struck more deeply....

She said, "I'm a freelance writer, occasional speaker, and now and then painter with a growing interest in photography.  But God has my heart more than all these things."

But God has my heart more than all these things...

I wish I could say that.   That I'm an artist, writer, mother, wife...but that God has my heart more than all these things.   But in truth so many things even more trivial than those things have my heart more than God.

I pray that God will change my heart so that is it His...more than all these things.
