Look What I Made at Women of Wonder (W.O.W.)

It may look like a kid did these, but it is my work (I like color)!

Once again, at my church (Parma Heights Baptist), the Women of Wonder meetings have resumed and so far, both have been extremely enjoyable! Last week I did stamping for the first time and used watercolor pencils. I didn't even know watercolor pencils existed! We made coasters, but used pretty weighty tiles that I will use as a paper weight instead since I already have a lot of coasters. Actually, I am giving one to a friend who is going through a rough time right now and gave the other to my hubby to use on his desk in the basement. (If he doesn't want it, I'll take it back.)

I like easy crafts and it doesn't get much easier than this.  Everyone got to make two.  While some of the group was doing the craft, the rest were eating.    Some of the letters got cut off when I stamped it but used the black watercolor pencil to fill them in.  Once you stamp it, you can't stamp over it and get it lined up perfectly, I tried and the craft lady was kind enough to give me another one.  I really liked using the watercolor pencils--I wasn't sure you could tell.  Once we got the stamp on and the color we wanted, one of the committee ladies sprayed them for us outside to seal them.  We did this right at the beginning of the meeting so they would have time to dry. 

The Bible study part was good too.  We are reading Power of a Positive Woman by Karol Ladd.  The discussion was on being created for a purpose and how faith chases away worry.  We had a good discussion at our table and laughed a lot!  The time flew by.  I am a clock watcher, and I know that if I am at a meeting that lasts 2 1/2 hours without looking at the time once, I am having a good time!

Next month we will be putting together some food baskets for delivery to people in the church who are struggling financially.  I think they said we'll be putting them into our food pantry.  The baskets will have items for a Thanksgiving meal.
