A round-up of favorite reads, cerebral seeds, and wow indeed!s from this week:
Revelation App: In graphic novel format, each chapter of Revelation comes to life verse by verse. The artistry in each illustration is exquisite, attention to detail is obvious. When the six hours spent in church each Sunday as a child grew too long, I would head right to the back of my bible where mysteries and intrigue abounded. Wish I had this version on my ipad in those days!
Anthropology window displays: A visual buffet! I took my dad into Antro for the first time earlier this year just to introduce him to the crazy creative art here, there, and everywhere. I get just as much inspiration from the way they decorate as from the products themselves.
EmersonMade: I started making my own caftans this winter from silk saris but this designer is way out in front with her original designs. She had me at Beautiful Blue Wild Rose but continues to woo me with each new addition to her burgeoning design line. Maybe one of these days a little treasure from her will work it's way into my wardrobe, sooner than later if I win her $1,000 giveaway. :)
Romans 8:12-14: Found this nugget of gold while reading with my daughter on the long way home from holidays. As a exuberant diy-er, my enthusiasm often overflows into my own personal relationship with Christ. "I think I can, I think I can" becomes my daily chant. I'm over that old way. Onward to the new life where God's Spirit beckons!
Fudge Banana Swirl: A new favorite resource for me, mostly in the way of easy, nutritious meal ideas. This lemon cake is a must try and take special note of the plate wall in the background - my current home decor project. Anyone have a spare beautiful plate they'd like to donate to my cause? :}
e-mealz: A chef I am not. But just because I lack the gift doesn't mean I should forsake the discipline (especially with hungry mouths to feed!). I think I'm going to give this program endorsed by Dave Ramsey a shot. They offer weekly meal plans complete with shopping lists that can be specialized according to your family's needs/desires. At only $5 a month, surely this is better than buying prepackaged specialty dinners at Costco, right? Let me know if you're already a member and can give any feedback!
