» Listings for June 2015

  1. After just 12 weeks of business I sent a parcel off to South Africa, which marked Grace and Salt ink being in four out of the seven continents. Europe, North America and Australia being the first three, Africa was the fourth... "So now I just need to get some Grace & Salt ink into Asia and Antartica and I've conquered the world" I thought!

    imageIf you follow me on Instagram you will have noticed how much I love my Midori planner, otherwise known as the "Traveler's Notebook" which has been part of the inspiration behind this long and ongoing competition... I would like to be able to see and share the Pocket Prayer Journals [PPJs] I send out around the world as they travel. So, the challenge is to take a photo of your Pocket Prayer Journal wherever it is around the world you are [or take it to] then share it with the hashtag "#PPJ_aroundtheworld". Every quarter I will award a prize for the best photo and probably a treat for a few runners up too ;)

    So get your thinking caps on, what are your local landmarks? If you're in Washington I would love to see a PPJ with the huge Abraham Lincoln who I've always wanted to visit myself. You live in Dublin - you could get a photo of one at the gates of the Guinness distillery. You live in Australia, take a snap with a koala. Off to Paris for the weekend, pack your PPJ and take a shot at the Sacré-Cœur! The possibilities are endless! And with all the BT-thirty-something groupies, I expect at least one PPJ to make it to the Giant's causeway please!!

    Looking forward to your entries!

  4. Genesis 30v22Genesis30:22 (ESV) "Then God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb." Such a moving verse in today's #SheReadsTruth this is a challenging journey Rachel has been on. I am blessed not to have known it in my own life, but it is a journey I have walked and am still walking with close friends and family. So when I wrote this out in my #journalingBible today I didn't write "Rachel" but left a space, because there are other names I know this to be true for that could go there, and there are names I still pray could go into that space. So this bit of #illustratedFaith is a reminder of testimony and a boost for #hope and #faith! 💛

  5. Behold I am doing a new thingIsaiah 43v19 "Behold, I am doing a new thing;"
    How true! I am doing many new things at the moment, (including a currently top secret Grace & Salt ink project in the works that I am very excited about!) and now there are quilt blocks I want to iron, hexis I want to cut, cake I want to bake, artwork I need to prep for the printer, journals to letter... However this morning's nap time is about priorities, it is about realigning rhythm. It is about getting stuck into my journaling Bible and resting in Him. Dabble in some illustrated faith maybe. But mainly soak up the word. Then, and only then, will I move on to the "to do" list in my Midori! ☺️ for now, the orders, the artwork, the blog and the domestic fun can all wait!!
