This blog is a window seat peek into the things that bring me joy. I desire to encourage, educate and edify all those who stop by.
Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price
Eyeglass lens art
Here is a broach made with vintage paper. I used vintage wrapping paper, an eye glass lens (from the dollar store), glossy accents and a bar pin back. This was a simple, but fun project. This is a great way to recycle old glasses that cannot be donated to the local Lyons club. I have heard that some types of glasses (prescription and thickness) are not usable. This was my first time trying this craft. I am thinking I could add bling, fancy trim, a feather on the back. One could get real creative with this easy project.
My name is Tina. I am a teacher, writer, dramatist, storyteller and crafter. Although, I studied computer science in college, I soon discovered that I was better at being creative than I was at being technical.
In 1997 I started the PARABLES Drama Ministry. Through the PARABLES I have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dramatic expression. I have had the opportunity to perform and direct in many venues; including street theater.
I like to cook, craft, sew and make jewelry. Hence, God is prompting me to include these interests as He is birthing PARABLES Productions and Events; an education company where we teach by using dramatic expression, stories and interactive instruction. Teaching creative subjects allows me to show others how to collaborate, communicate, create and exude confidence. In addition to theater related activities; there is now a venue to teach creative subjects like sewing, cooking and crafting. I host events where I simply teach lessons and skills that I have learned over the years; hence these events are called "Pass-it-on Parties." Now that's passion turned profession!
