I keep alluding to my soon coming upheaval, and I can't even really tell you all about it yet...not quite yet...but soon. Please know though that it is exciting, and not a bad thing...and it will be the stuff of numerous posts and photos and such...soon. BUT, in the meantime, SO much is happening, though it doesn't necessarily show on the surface - kinda like a duck in a pond - she looks quiet and peaceful on the surface, but she is furiously paddling underneath. That's how it is with me - a lot of hurry up and wait. Hurry up to do all that needs to be done, and wait to share about it...wait to spend time commenting...wait to participate in all the fun...wait, wait, wait.
I have been furiously working to finish my newest calendar in the midst of it all, and I am oh so close. (why don't I begin these things in January instead of October...? If I had time to write resolutions, that'd be one...) Yes, I realize that January is already about half over, but that still leaves 11 months of designs to enjoy (I hope), so it's not a complete loss. Anyway, if you've come here seeing if I've posted anything new since January 1, you've looked at the January design several times already - so it's like no biggie if January is almost over when I complete it!
Here' a peek at a few more month's designs - click any image to see the details:
(you'll recognize these characters from a project I did last year)
In this calendar, I definitely re-used designs from the past, but repurposed them in a fresh new way with the cut-out look and lots of scrapbook-style elements. I'm truly enjoying this work...it's a happy calendar...it makes me smile... I hope this little peek makes you smile too... :o)

I hope the New Year brings greater joy in your home and greater peace in your heart! May your delight ever be in the Lord, and may you feel His delight for you as never before!
PS - The image above is the January illustration for my newest 2009 Calendar - I am working very hard to complete it, and hope to have it available for purchase within the next week or so... Meanwhile, if you would like to order the re-issue of my "Cup Runneth Over" Scripture Calendar for 2009, I hope you will check it out in my CafePress shop! (Don't you need a new calendar right about now...? :o)
