Fun Fall Fridge Magnet Tutorial and a Freebie

  For our home study group tonight, I made a fall fridge magnets.  I love making these, I have made so many of these over the last 40 years, I couldn't guess how many!  They started out using construction paper and handwriting ( nothing else available!)  And now, the sky is the limit! I thought I would do a quick tutorial on making these. These make a great favor for any event. From a Hobby Lobby 12x12 paper pack, wonderful colors and patterns of ink-dense florals. Cut 4x6 peices    I lined the edge with an alcohol marker.  This little detail really makes a big difference I glue the patterned paper onto cardboard - I purchase these in precut sizes from Uline. Trim and re-edge just to make sure none of the craft cardboard is showing. I lined my focal verse with washi tape and then picked a contrasting paper from the stack ' I mounted the verse using wide edge double-sided tape, also from Uline Glued this onto the background paper and added two magnets and Voila!  here is mine on

But as for you, Teach what Accords with Sound Doctrine, Living in the End Times

  Good Morning Everyone, I know many of us are doing scripture writing in various forms, I write mine in a daily planner and sometimes I make a note in my journaling bible, and then it moves on to a study bible for further investigation. I wanted to share my entry today Because I felt the verses in Titus are so important and relevant for today's insane world.

They are to teach what is good,  4   and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,  5   to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.  6   likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled.  7   Show yourself in all resp

Back to Blogging and Word Art Wednesday and a Fine Art Freebie

 After taking a 6-month hiatus from the blog, I've started working on a better look, rethinking content and I've purchased a new camera. I guess after 12 years I'm not ready to can MaxamMade.  Is blogging even a relevant forum these days?  I hope so, I am not marketing and I am not doing video, I am still focusing on card making and outreach.  I've just about retired, I am only working 2 half days a week caring for a sweet elderly sister in Christ.  This is giving me more time for all the fun things I've been waiting to have more time for, as well as Ministry work. I still love Word Art Wednesday, and I am using my first made card in months as an entry in this week's challenge.    After spending the summer on a home renovation, my craft room looked like a bomb hit it and I just couldn't craft. Clutter and disorder kill all of my creative juices; 6 months, it felt like a year.  Have you ever paused your crafting, and then when you finally get back to it you f
