He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Hector-Ornamental Angels

One of the people I enjoyed talking with the most at the Hector Tat Days was Nina Libin. Nina is the creator of Beanile Lace, and if you haven't seen her work, you are really missing something. Her website is www.beanile.com/index.html. She showed us how to make beaded angels. We made one out of thick thread for practice (Picture D). She provided us with nice metallic thread and beads so that we could later make earrings. This was my first real experience using more than a few beads, and Nina's directions made it very easy. It was also my first experience using metallic threads, and I could easily become an addict! I can't wait to get the wires on my silver angel earrings! (Picture E)


  1. Very pretty angels, although picture E is very blurred. A good start to your Blog

  2. The silver angel earrings picture has been replaced...


I love comments from my readers!
