Give Thanks.

Last weekend, I was able to watch church services in my bed.  It was pretty awesome.

So while I listened, I doodled.

I've been interested in typography for a while, and LOVE the work of Katie Daisy, which you can see all over pinterest...and even on Under the Sycamore's blog design. I have wanted to make something fun for the living room wall, and listening to words of respected people urging me to be better was a great time to do it.

I just used my prisma colored pencils, and played with a couple different types of designs.

I just got them framed yesterday, and up on the wall today.

They are not as bright as I'd hoped...so I may have to try a different type with paint next version.  They seem a lot more muted on the wall.

However, I wanted to share these designs with you.  So many of you have kindly supported me as we built our home, and have shown concern and love as I wind my way through diabetes.  I give thanks for each of you.

If you'll follow this link, HERE, you can download a pdf version you can print and frame for your own home.  I hope you enjoy it!

Nice job - giving thanks is the first step to humility. The idea of true humility has been on my mind lately and I read that giving thanks is the first step to humility.

I like how the colors you chose for the typography pick up the colors of the throw pillow.
