Pen Play

I want to share my playing last night after the kids went to bed. I am planning to give this to my friend who invited me to her Thanksgiving dinner (She invited me over a year ago--to make sure I'd come *wink*) as a hostess gift. This is my first time making the fancy corner letter, and only a second time using gold leaf...(In other words, I know it's not perfect!)

This is beautiful!
You did a great job.
She will love it-what a great idea for a hostess gift.
Did you do the writing yourself?

Thanks Sharon! I did the whole thing. It's not the best picture, nor the best writing I've done, but it's still pretty. My friend loves anything I write. When I started, 6 months ago, she didn't, but I've improved! lol
The quote is by W J Purkiser but becasue I spelt his name wrong, I had to cut it off. ;)

Sis Becca, (I finally know your name!! YAY!! LOL!!)

WOW!!! This is absolutely beautiful!! I love it. You did a great job!! :)

I know that will be a blessing to her.


Jessica said...

Do you make and sell these? If not, you should!! It is good. :)

try2bAsunbeam said...

Thanks Jessica! But I have only been doing it for 5 months? I can MAYBE practice once a week. I am actually not very good at all yet! I have a lot of pots of ink to go before I catch up to the pros! lol

Jessica said...

Well, I would love to have one for our house.... if you ever have time, and didn't mind telling me how much one would cost. :)

try2bAsunbeam said...

Jessica, If you tell me your favorite bible verse, I will make you one with that, ok? And what colors your house is so I can make you one that blends in well. Thanks so much for your encouragement!

Jessica said...

Hey Becca,

My favorite verse is Job 5:8-9.

Our kitchen is Sunflowers (so yellow & green)... our bedroom is Red White & Blue.... our office is red & black.... our living room is going to be olive green, light brown, and creme (off white).... You can just pick any of those colors, and I will put it in the room that matches! :)

If you want to you can email me and let me know if you need any money for supplies... shipping... etc, and I can email you my address. My email address is

Thank You so much for doing this, I love handmade things, they are so much more special than store bought decorations!! :)



The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
