Starting My new exciting project.

I'm getting ready  to start teaching and I'm almost done. My excitement hasn't let up. I do feel God's hand started this and will lead Me. I'm listening to His guidance and trying My hardest to hear it correctly. I'm leaning toward a girls club but then go back and feel why leave boys out, although I do find it easier and more natural to teach girls.

A few of My supplies to start with...

  National girls ministries sent Me a huge package of material to read, without Me asking for it. I was thinking... that might be a leading point from God Himself  : )    To My friends who follow Me,will You please say a prayer that God will help Me to clearly understand His direction and guidance for this part of My life-Hugs and blessings Denise Kaye   (Grammie Kaye) Opps I forgot.If You want to peek at My brand new website it's....www.grandmakayssundayschool.com  If You have any thoughts or advice I would love to hear from You.I need all the help I can get.

Goodbye-Time for a new adventure...Just like Bilabo Baggins

Welp  Beautiful Friends it's time for Me to say goodbye.It's been a unexpected 6 year fun adventure.Through My Cooffeeberry Cottage I have met so many ladies that have become a joy to call friend.As many of You already know,this has been developing for awhile now.I don't have it all figured out yet but I do feel The Lord leading Me,  although as yet I don't know where.I'll be trying out a few things until I feel the lords hand stopping Me somewhere down the magical path through the forest where He always leads Me. My new blog site  grandmakayessundayschool.com   I'm doing this on My own, might take Me some time.
Our 39th Wedding Anniversary,

What would You Do?

My Youngest daughter Leanne and Me.
Suppose money was not an issue and You had tons of it.Suppose You thought about hiring a  mentor or a coach for Your personal life or even Your professional life, what would it be for?  Is there something You need help with so much that You might consider hiring a coach ? Turn the question around for a minute, if You could be a mentor/coach  and were offered money for it,what would You consider Your expertise?What Would You love to help others with,say through the internet.It's become a huge
profession since social networking has become so prevalent. I've been thinking about the opportunities.I've been trying to pinpoint an expertise of mine that I could share.I'm wondering if others have thought about it or looked into it.
     So tell Us if You will.What would You think about getting help for or how would You like to give help? Just a big question in My head lately.I would like a business coach or a full time RV living coach.I think I would enjoy helping others too but don't know exactly how.If You can think of interesting mentor jobs can You let Us all know?I'm thinking and thinking....How can I give My Husband a gift of MULA. I need ideas.       Hugs and blessings- Denise   PS... My Husband just says the best way is to cut back on Your spending. Yes I know that one Paul.

An inspirational creative space just for Me

Karen Valentine's blog, Desert Cottage,is hosting... Where Bloggers Create. This has been a Yearly party that has a large following of women who love to look at spaces to create in.Many ideas from all types of artistic spaces and the Ladies that own them.Please join Us.   Now for My much treasured comfy room.
 It's a medium size extra bedroom.It's turned out over the Years to be all Mine, except My Husband of 39 Years does sit in the recliner to go on the computer and He's more than welcomed.

From long ago to honor Him in His own Home I did leave His Crash Corrigan signed photo,the cowboy.It is though sourrounded by girly artsy  decor.
 My Husband did give Me His fishing box to keep portable supplies in.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I made this magical mirror below to step into many magical forests.See the forest peeking out or leading Me into it and I always can grab a paintbrush as I enter.






 The light was so pretty as I took photos of My bookshelf.
 My dearly loved Grandchildren are in this room for easy to remember thankfulness and prayer needs for them. On the opposite wall My ancestors keep Me company too. (photo below)


 The Italians,Germans and Irish that sent prayers up for Me and gave My Mother and Father all kinds of love.Last but not least the last photo is of My recent collection of matching Bible study planner and case, prayer notebook, illustrated journal Bible,and a Tea Time coloring book.Thank You Jesus for My blessings.I ALWAYS have to remind Myself that even though We are not financially rich, We are so blessed.Thank You for reading My blog.My blog as I've recently said is dying off after 6 Years of being an enjoyment to Me. If You feel We could be kindred spirits and have a lot in common, I would love for You to follow Me,and I will follow You.Blessings and Hugs-Denise                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  PS.  One last look at My art desk.  I'm so happy I started doing MUCH MORE art after My last left Home many Years ago now.

God speaks.

Garden Girl
Ah Yes cool Summer early mornings in the garden.Birds and critters entertaining Me while sitting in the dappled sunlight of the patio. God is so good,and these are some of the times I find it easier to hear His voice.With each site of a squirrel  and each song and flight of the bird, I hear His whisper. Just this morning (as My neighbors and Myself continue to watch Our golf course view and  wildlife  disappear, due to a construction Co. buying and building homes and apartments on it), God spoke to Me."I will always show You the beauty of My world.... birds,critters, trees and more,You will still enjoy. "
   I'm truly having a mojo problem with blogging. I know I've said this recently in prior posts but after 6 Years I have lost My blogging mojo and hope to get it back. My last post was so long ago...I'm trying to hang in there tell it returns. Love and blessings Your way- Denise

Art Crazy and Bible Journaling too.

I have a new love, Bible Art Journaling. I can't get enough,can't stop. I have been doing alot of art this Year.... sketching, painting,  mixed media. Now for the last three Months I have combined all three into Bible art Journaling. I hope there are more than a few of My readers who also enjoy this. You basically start with a wide margin note taking Bible, these have been out in the stores for a long while.Now they are called Bible Journals. I  began with all My favorite verses that I have loved for Years and did My art that related to those verses.  I'm also renewing an interest I had Years ago in inspirational/faith art Journaling. On Mondays and Tues. I paint from My online class I'm taking, mostly acrylics for Me. I never could have dreamed that My Senior Years would have been spent doing art.I knew I would be doing crafts but My crafts dwindled when art took over.What a blessing I didn't expect. My Lord is full of surprises.
I can't wait to dance before My Lord.

Blessings abound.

Job saw The Lord.

My spirit is in the Lords hands.
Patchwork,done in two inch squares.

Angel of Joy.

Angel of Radiance.

My feet - My path.

Angel of Mercy.                As You can see I love to paint Angels. Most female faces I paint end up as Angels in the end. Wished for blessings to all of You. Now please join Me in making art, esp. if Your a senior like Me....It's so good for You.

Sound Therapy of Spring

The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.   Song of Solomon 2: 12 LB



The sound of many birds singing early in the morning on a spring day.A favorite but even more charming to Me can be one or two lone birds singing late at night. I love sitting out on My patio at night listening to the Killdeer  sing while flying over the golf course.
  Sweet Spring Dreams to You-Blessings-Denise
One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
