I have recently been honored by the request to take ownership of the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Site. I, of course, accepted! I love that site more than any other I have been a part of. As part of my new role, I decided to have a site party and a tie in blog party for Valentine's Day. If you would like to be part of the blog party fun, please be sure to post a comment with your blog link and I will add it to a blog party section or page. This is new to me, so I still have much to figure out! See the post above this one for the Blog party details! I know I will be hosting a giveaway, yet to be announced, but it will be beautiful! I hope many of my Marie site participants will as well! See you there! The blog badge for you to post on your blogs is above. Be sure to link it back to my above blog post. To do this, right click on the badge. Save it wherever you store image files. Click on the above Blog Event Post (the post directly above this one) and then copy the web address. Paste it where you can find it. Go to your blog. Click on lthe Blogger sign ( or go to wherever you blog allows you to edit your layout.) Choose Layout. Choose Add a Gadget. Choose Add a Picture. Fill in the Blanks. For Link, fill in my blog post address. That should link the badge to my site. Then click save. I will be testing this myself and update this as necessary.
I specialize in watercolor with pen and ink, mixed media and mail art, including art dolls. I love creating and sowing the fertile soil of my creative mind with new art techniques or subjects.
Some of my favorite subjects to paint include: Marie Antoinette, Alice in Wonderland, mermaids, fairies, mushrooms and Candy Land. I like to paint my own visions of these things.
I am a born again Christian. Fundamentalist Baptist, to be exact. I am serious about my faith, it is my life, which is why I include it here. As I believe one day, I will stand before the Lord and give an account of every word and every opportunity to share the Gospel, I present the Gospel on this page and possibly in any materials I send out. I do not do this to be obnoxious. I do it to obey my God and my faith. Please be as tolerant and understanding of my faith as you would want me to be of yours. Yes, I would like you to be saved, because I believe it is the only way to Heaven. But, I respect you as a person, no matter what decision, lifestyle or faith you may choose.
I believe the following about salvation:Becoming a Christian is simple. It only requires belief. It cannot be earned in any way. It is the free gift of God.1. Admit you are a sinner and that you need a savior. That is, YOU can do NOTHING to save yourself. Romans 3:23. Admit that God sent His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross in your place. John 3:16 and Romans 6:23. Believe that Jesus rose the third day, thus gaining the ultimate victory over death for all eternity! Romans 10:19. Ask God to forgive you and to give you new life in Christ. Repent of your sins before God and ask Him to make you a new creature in Christ Jesus. Romans 10:19. You can have peace and eternal securtiy in Christ! Romans 10:9 and Romans 10:13. If you still have doubts as to Jesus Christ and God's plan for salvation, please read the Gospel of John and the book of Romans carefully. Ask God to reveal His truth to you.
