It's done!

I made a big boo-boo when it was done. I was shaking a bottle of gold ink and some must've been ont he rim and splatted right on the finished picture. I said "oh no..." and then got to thinkin' how I could fix it. I took some paper towel and tried to get it off, but it just smudged, so I took the ink, watered it down and sarted smearing it all over the paper, making hte cool green background! Thank-you, Lord, for making my picture even better!

Isn't that the way it goes, though. We mess stuff up and God turns our mess into beauty!

This lady is going to be so pleased...what a great job...and good job on the mess up. :)
These would be such great ideas for Christmas presents. How much do you think it would cost to do something like this-without a frame?

Thanks! Thanks to all of you!

I showed it to her today and she was extremely pleased. I charged $50 for this one without the frame or mat. She thought I was going to say over $100, so she was happy. Considering the time it takes to make it, $50 probably isn't enough, but I am satisfied with the price. I think it all depends on how elaborate the drawing is as to how much it costs. One like the one I did for Jessica, I would charge someone $30 for, I think. If there was only writing and no paint, I would charge $20, I think--depends on how long the writing is, too. The hardest part is that whatever I am asked to do, I have to have some freedom in the design, only because it comes out of my head, if you know what I mean. That makes me nervous that I will make the whole thing for someone and then have them say they don't like it. That concerns me. I suppose I get around that by showing the pencil drawing first, but even the penciled drawing looks so much different than the completed project. I suppose the best way is to see what someone wants and figure how long it'll take and charge a per hour fee. Sorry, my answer is so long-winded, Sharon!

I forgot to mention that the green background, changes from green to gold as it moves. The picture on here doesn't do the real thing justice. You gals think it's pretty online, you should see the real thing! I am amazed that God has given me such a gift!

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".
