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.

Cricut Cut image swap
I really need to use my cricut more so I joined a swap. We had to make 20 manly, layered cuts. There were boats, cars, golf clubs etc. I chose to make a compass. I was thinking camping, boy scouts, hiking. Not exclusively male, but it could work (lol) I had such a difficult time making these. The first time the cuts didn't go all the way through the paper. The second time same thing. So into the recycle bin. The third time the paper moved. The sticky mat seemed ok, but the paper kept moving. So by now I am up to the 6th try. I was trying not to get frustrated. I am not happy with the final product, but I mailed them anyway. I hope I get better with practice.
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!
