Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

    I’m not very crafty but I do crochet. I guess I could show you all what I am working on with my crochet!!! And I’m learning how to garden. I’m pretty new to the blog world. I found your link through Amanda’s Books and More.

    That card looks awesome! I would really like to know how to do the journaling like the lady above us does it. I have seen so many they are all so beautiful. I am afraid I would just make a big ‘ol mess of it all!

    I will visit the pages of the people here! Thanks for hosting this hop!

      So nice to meet you Tammy!

      If you are interested in Bible Journaling, I have written several posts to help you get started and I regularly feature Journaling Bibles (in fact I two amazing Bibles coming up with giveaways in the very near feature that you will not want to miss!)

      You don’t have to be an artist to have a beautiful Bible – there are coloring Bibles where the art is pre-drawn, products you can incorporate into your Bible – or you can just take notes and jazz it up a bit! 🙂
