Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar

Behind the Story of our New Words Worth Remembering Calendar
Before even starting the artwork for this 2023 calendar, I started asking the Lord what would HE want for us. Since He already knows what 2023 holds for us, I wanted Him to lead me to the verses that He knows we will need to be reminded of in the new year. I kept being drawn to the verses in the book of Psalm and to the time-tested old hymns! I asked the ladies on our Facebook page what did they want to see in the new calendar... I heard critters! So, guess what you will find in this 2023 calendar? Of course, some florals, but also critters with soft faces, sweet eyes and beautiful reminders from Psalms and hymns to point our attention to our Good Father. May He be glorified by the artwork I've created. And may you be encouraged by knowing Him even better in 2023.

We are having an art class and we want you to come to class!

Did you know your artwork can tell a story? I will show you how to take simple things like old book pages, scrapbook paper, old sewing patterns, maps, bits of string & yarn, buttons & beads and other objects and use them in your artwork to help tell your story. 

We would love for you to join us for art class, for our Mixed Media Creative Hearts Workshop. Please don't let supplies be an obstacle! We want to help you as best as we can, but really we just want you to know that you can create beautiful art just like this as well! And be proud of it! I can't wait to have you join us!

Join me in this Fall Workshop!

I would love to invite you to join me in my studio so that I can share with you one of my very favorite creative techniques called Mixed Media.

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

Do You Know Why Lemonade Creative Hearts Was Started?

A mishap in 2020 drove me to my knees in prayer, the desperation opened my mind, and God planted the seed in my heart. And Part Two of the Lemonade Story is about me opening my mind to be willing to do something that so many women have been asking me for throughout the years. Which led me to begin Lemonade Creative Hearts.

Lemonade Creative Hearts (LCH for short) is a monthly practice of renewing your mind, and focusing on Truth, even when life gives you lemons.

How Early is TOO Early to Decorate for Fall?

How Early is TOO Early to Decorate for Fall?

As we enter into this season of Thanksgiving, we encourage you to "harvest" with a thankful heart. Our Lemonade Reminders Encouragement Kits are meant to plant seeds of truth on your heart and also to spread the seeds of truth to others. Continue showing gratitude to others, especially to God, for we owe all things to Him. 

I hope some of these ideas inspire and encourage you to tap into your creativity! You never know what a piece of art hanging on a wall might do for someone!

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World
I came into this world wanting my way. I wanted it when I wanted it and how I wanted it. [ I realized I needed to start ] making it part of my daily prayers that God will direct my "want to" to line up with what He wants for my life.

Lord, TRAIN my heart to WANT the things you want for me.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to have a distaste for anything that doesn’t line up with YOUR will.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to TRUST YOUR Gracious Spirit wherever You lead me.

Why Scripture Journaling Is Important To Me

Why Scripture Journaling Is Important To Me

Teaching women how they really do have creativity inside of them... planted by the Creator Himself! By teaching you how to work with your own handwriting with very simple steps to enhance it... Teaching you that the discipline of practice applied to lettering and journaling Bible Verses can actually help you memorize the verses. 

The scripture lettering that I do in my journals helps me ZERO in on the verse, helping me write it on my heart. But many times it doesn’t end with the finished lettering, it goes a step further and becomes a prayer.  

Boasting In the Name of the Lord - God our Father

Boasting In the Name of the Lord - God our Father

Did you know that in the Hebrew language boast means to “have confidence in” or “trust in” something or someone?

With this in mind, when I re-read Psalm 20:7 and replaced the word boast with trust, it is so much easier to understand and apply it to my own circumstances. I can ask myself who or what am I “trusting”? Who or what am I typically using as “a means of escape”? Yes, asking yourself these things can be convicting… But that is a GOOD thing! With conviction, comes the opportunity to repent/turn away and receive forgiveness and freedom! And that is a wonderful BLESSING!   

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Psalm 139: 23 & 24 can be used as a prayer as well, asking the Holy Spirit to sort through our motives and intentions. We aren’t always the best judge of our own heart, but He is! “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.”

All of these verses bring reassurance to my heart and mind, especially when I am praying for direction. I’ve often asked Him to make my heart, my mind and my desires line up with His. Basically, to make me want what He wants for me! And to give me a distaste for anything that is not of Him.

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

So, friend, receive the comfort from these powerful verses [of Psalm 139], BUT I also want to encourage you that even the discomfort can be useful! Welcome the blessing of the vehicle that leads you to the foot of the Cross!  

“Search me (thoroughly), O God, and know my heart!  Try me and know my thoughts!  And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23 & 24 Amplified

You are NOT overlooked. You are not forgotten. You are not unheard. You are NOT a mistake!  You are KNOWN by Him. You can praise Him because you ARE fearfully AND wonderfully made BY Him!

I hope you can take a few moments to read our blog and read the 24 verses of Psalm 139. Read them slowly to soak on the words and let them sink into your heart. The words are describing a Good Father and His precious child. These verses are incredible Truths to combat negative thoughts and feelings.
