Here is my piece for last weeks Salt challenge, please have alook at what Stacey wrote and our responses to the theme here

I've been wanting to do some more painting and perhaps mixing it with some other media. Thought this would be an opportunity to play . I'm afraid I was a bit impatient with my attempts and am not very satisfied with it. Anyway, the important aspect for me was to be reminded that for guidance we should look to God's word, and pray for wisdom to apply it to the situations we find ourselves in.

I printed out the verse, tore it and used the wet acrylic paint to 'stick' it to the canvas.

Di Hickman sketch Sept no 1

Used some of my new Anna Griffin stash for this, the papers and ribbon co-ordinate so well with her kits. I like the idea of creating baby cards that are not too 'babyish'... if you know what I mean!

Papers and Ribbon - Anna Griffin,
Stamps - Hero Arts and Stampin Up!,
Punches - Fiskars, Xcut and Woodware.

All new things...

I heard on the radio the other day that September is the new January... I think what was meant was that people are using September to be a fresh start as people often do in January with resolutions etc.

Although I am not a fan of making resolutions that can't be kept, I'm all for a little contemplation and reflection. This September is bringing some new things to out family, my eldest starts junior school, my middle son starts infant school, and the ETA for baby no 4 is ever looming closer. I've been reflecting a lot on how my time should be used, how to be most productive when the children are not around, and how I can spend quality time with them when they are. I am fortunate to have a very loving and caring husband who gives a lot of time to our family, and I am ever in awe of how he keeps his cool as the sound levels rise and the mayhem starts. Spending time with God each day has to be a priority, as it time so often slips away. More and more people and their needs are being brought to my attention and in need of prayer, and I want to be able to talk to God about them. Also my spiritual walk has to grow, as I have more responsibilties to those around me. I want God's name to be glorified.

Anyway, I've ended up rambling, so I'll get on and post the picture of the boys and their first day of school - well, kind of...

Luke's first day at Maesydre,
Ethan's first day at Ardwyn and
Jadon's first day with his new bag!
