what thinkest thou?

I've added a feature that allows readers to respond to a post by ticking a little box at the end; at the moment, the possible responses are as follows:

... I love this.
:) ... I like this.
:| ... I don't care about this.
:( ... I dislike this.
? ... What?  I'm confused.

Readers can still write their own comments as well.


 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.  (Jane Austen.)

more profound in Greek

I didn't know how to draw anything that looked remotely like a frog, so I learnt how here.

twelve days of Christmas (or a baker's dozen)

This year, I've made somewhere around nine greeting cards and four magnets as Christmas gifts; but rather than post them all at once, I think I shall post one a day from Christmas to Epiphany.  They are all meant to be cheerful, and several of the cards, a bit silly.

the sea
more profound in Greek
enter into His gates
perfect peace
happy un-birthday
Hyla brook
upon us

this is the day
O give thanks
let us sing
greatly to be praised

Christmas thanks

I will say of the Lord...

I will say of the Lord...

(Psalm 91.2.)  I made this for a friend for Christmas; I'll write more about it later.  Here it is framed:

Friday flowers: happy Friday before Christmas break!

I made twenty of these; it took about forty-five minutes, not including writing inside them.

in all your ways

I was waiting to post this project, which I started a while ago, until I'd finished it, but now that my shoes have been dragged through so much dirt and snow, I fear that any further work would ruin my sharpies, so I will consider it finished enough.

Proverbs 3.5f.

Friday flowers: happy Friday before finals!

I didn't have time for anything exciting, but I did put new cartridges in three of my Sheaffer pens: black, green, and purple.  Unfortunately, I must have forgotten to clean the nib of the green pen after I last used it, which was with black ink, so the green is a sort of hideous olive colour.  At least the purple turned out rather nicely.

Friday flowers: Daniel 2.20

Daniel answered and said:  'Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His.  And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.  He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.  I thank You and praise You, O God of my fathers; You have given me wisdom and might, and have now made known to me what we asked of You....'  (Daniel 2.20ff.)
