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.
I showed that to the kids (ages 6, and 7...my 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.
If you'ld like to personalize your case, I also sell iPhone cases at my Zazzle shop which can be customized with your own text or photos. They cost more, but through February 28 you can get free shipping on them there with coupon code IPHONECASE4V.
Hello everybody! Found some more CafePress and Zazzle giveaways for you! See, it's almost like being able to give away something from my shop since if you win, you COULD get something of mine. :-) You can find my stuff at CafePress by searching under scribbleprints or galesgiggles there, and all my stuff at Zazzle is right here (you know, just in case). The dates are when they end...
Oh, yeah, and I am actually giving away something myself from my shop this month too (Click Here for That):
The ornaments I sell at Zazzlecan be customized with a picture or text, and come in heart shape! Howevery, for un-customized ornaments in circle or oval shapes, my CafePress shop is the cheapest option (even cheaper than the CafePress markeplace on sale!)
*LOVEBUG Coupon does not cover Flip or Sigg products at CafePress.
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.
