Friend Of The Week – Patsy Paterno


Bloom by Patsy Paterno

This week, I’m delighted to introduce you to Patsy Paterno – a mixed-media artist who shares the message of God’s love from the Phillipines and her gorgeous blog, Heartworks!

I count Patsy among my early friends from the days when I first started my blog. Her stunning artwork, combined with her passion for God and her love for His people, continues to draw friends old and new to her blog each week!

One of the things that I love most about Patsy is that she’s not the type of person who just talks about faith – she embodies it in everything she does. She incorporates it into her artwork (which includes Bible journaling, ATCs, paintings and canvas prints) – her blogging – her prison ministry – and her family business, Papelmelroti!

One of my favorite prints of Patsy’s is Bloom (one of several featured works in her Art Gallery!)

Be sure to visit Patsy this week – explore her inspiring blog – and congratulate her on being our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Did you enjoy meeting Patsy and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?

Be sure to leave a comment as we’d love to get to know you better – and be sure to share our Friendship Friday party with all of your friends!

    Hi Ramona,

    What a wonderful surprise to be featured on your post today! It’s a great start to my day! I have a big smile on! I’ll be sure and feature your giveaway on my post today. I am wishing that the movie will show here in the Philippines. I have been listening to Priscila Shirer’s preaching on youtube for some time now, and i learn a lot from her. :^) Have a great day and weekend! patsy

    • So glad I could start your day with a nice surprise! The movie just released here a few weeks ago, so I’m sure it will work its way to your part of the world soon! You will really love Priscila’s book – they were all fab but hers just drew me in! Have a wonderful weekend and let Peggy know that she’s been missed! 🙂

    Thank you for the fun party! I am really enjoying getting back into a bit of a routine. This has been a crazy summer with a wedding (I now have a wonderful son-in-law) and house renos!

  5. Emma says:

    So glad the focus is Instagram this week! I’m just starting to get more active on that platform and love finding new people to follow!

    • I love Instagram too, Emma, and am always excited when I get to focus on it (which probably sounds a little odd, coming from me, but since I try to rotate them around, I don’t get to pick and choose favorites!)

      Hope you make lots of great connections this week and hope you have a fabulous weekend! 🙂
