Changes Ahead!

I have EXCITING NEWS. After much soul-searching, praying, and advice seeking, I've decided to take my writing more seriously and professionally.

I've purchased my own domain name and will be launching a new blog soon!!!
 On my new blog, you will find more posts about God, spiritual life, and crafts/creativity, of course.

What does this mean for Cup of Delight? I will leave Cup of Delight up for a while, so you can find posts and projects there, but I will no longer be posting on this blog. It is a bitter-sweet change as this blog has been a creative, fun outlet for me. But, I feel the change is needed for a new blog with more of a focus.

I will post the domain and announce the launch date soon. I will also be creating a new writer's page for myself. I hope you will follow me along to the new blog. Thank you for reading and enjoying Cup of Delight over the years!!!

DIY St. Patrick's Day Mini Art

I made two mini art pieces for my 2.5x3.5 frame and  my 3x3 frame. 

The first one is a moss Celtic cross on a faux wood background:

For this one, I made a Celtic cross pattern and traced it on the back of the moss. I used some moss with a sticky back, so I was able to trace it onto the paper that you peel off. The faux wood is scrapbook paper.

The other piece is a doily four leaf clover:

I had a pack of mini doilies I found in the dollar spot at Michael's. I noticed the white ones looked like four leaf clovers and an idea popped into my head for this mini art. I dyed the doily green using the same technique I use to dye paper doilies. The stem is floral wire and the background is scrapbook paper.

I will post about my whole St. Patrick's Day bookshelf soon!

Unintentional Hiatus

I've been taking an unintentional hiatus. Amidst the craziness of life, blogging has been put on the back burner for me. This stage of life-having an almost four year old and a four month old has been harder than I thought it would be...mostly because this precious guy doesn't like to sleep at.all.

But, I am hoping to post soon because it gives me life, so I'll see ya'll soon!

Jesse Tree Ornaments Days 11-15

These are Days 11-15 of my Jesse Tree Ornaments. You can can see my previous posts here:

 Day 11-Rahab 
 “This oath you made us swear will not be binding on us unless, when we enter the land, you have tied this scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down..."
Joshua 2:17-18

Because the Lord is a God of mercy and redemption, Rahab, a prostitute, is included in Jesus' lineage. For this ornament, I tied a simple red cord to the verse piece to represent the red cord Rahab tied in her window as an act of faith.

Day 12- Ruth and Boaz
"Your people will be my people and your God my God."
Ruth 1:16
 I got the idea for this ornament from this blog. It's just two pieces of dried wheat died together on a wooden heart. The verse is on the back.

Day 13- King David
  "But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7

I used jewelry charms to make this ornament-a crown for David's kinghood and a horn for the horn of oil with which Samuel anointed David.

Day 14 - Isaiah's Prophecy
   "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."
Isaiah 9:2

I had some cute miniature doilies I found at the Dollar Spot at Michael's. The yellow one reminded me of the sun, so I decided to use it for the light ornament.

Day 15- Elijah
 "Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”
1 Kings 18:21

This is one of my more elaborate ornaments. I wanted to make the altar on which Elijah proved God is God and Baal was fake. I used two wood dowels, painted brown, and tied them together. I glued them on a wood disk. I made the fire with felt and the stones were beads I had on hand.

I'll be posting more soon!
