|My look these days!|
March is crazy for me because of our month long St. Patrick's extravaganza in our town. I happen to live in Dublin - Georgia, that is, and we take St. Patrick's pretty seriously here! So, for the whole month everyone is crazy on edge with all sorts of festival activities. Last weekend was what we call Super Saturday whereby most of the shenanigans blossom and end. We had fun this year with lovely unexpected weather. It was supposed to rain, which was terrible because my daughter is in the band at her school and they were supposed to march. But alas, it was fabulous weather and all was a go! I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patty's Day! :)
So I will share a quick pic peek of what was on my desk this morning for WOYWW #355. Pretty much it is all the digs for my monthly challenges. I will be sharing one of those challenges with you today in another post, so hop on over to see that post later today!
To the left is my very FULL art journal whereby I am working on my March Pick A Stick Challenge and I hope to show that to you tomorrow! That journal has been the best journal. It is Diane Reaveley's small art journal, to which I love! She really knew what she was doing when she designed her journals and they are so much fun to work in. I really want to get the square one that she came out with last year, but as all things do, it must wait until my wallet get's a little fuller! :)
Down from the journal is my March Tag It Tuesday Challenge tag to which I will be sharing with you in my next post today (I know right? Two in one day when I find it hard to blog in general.....geesh!) And pretty much everything else on that desk top is crafty goodness that I used in both projects and love and am so thankful for!!

I will say that even though I was most certainly convicted, I am not too bad in that area because I usually NEVER have money to spare, hee hee, but it would seem when I do, I am hot and heavy on checking out the "sales" on my favorite crafty websites. While I don't know that God is necessarily unhappy with me for my crafting, I know that I should be more wise with what He has given me! God can't bless us with more, if we aren't good servants with what He gives us initially!
God's Word is very specific in that He states, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matt 6:33) What things? ALL things! God most certainly wants to bless us, but we need to be about His business first, thereby paving the way for His eternal blessings. It's about obedience! God can't, and I daresay won't, bless us further if we can't be good stewards of what we already have.
So as I looked at my work desk this morning and marveled at all the crafty goodness I already have, I knew I needed to heed God's ministry to me and enjoy what I have....more is not necessarily needed! I probably have enough crafty goodness in my art closet to float a boat! LOLOLOL This is my conviction, so don't take it as yours, unless it ministers to you as well. I believe "treats" are ok from time to time, but too much of anything can give you a cavity! LOLOL
Make it a great Wednesday my friends and many blessings to you! :)
