My friend Cindy gave me permission to doodle many years ago. Without her encouragement, I never would have had the nerve to draw. Cindy and I enjoy making Advent calendars. Here is the first two weeks of hers this year. To see Cindy’s entire calendar, go to her website Mostly Markers. I really like the words of hope and promise she includes each day. The whole calendar looks like a patchwork quilt anticipating the birth of Jesus. Since today is only the 6th day of Christmas, I will look at our Advent calendars and continue the celebration of Jesus’s birth for the rest of the twelve days of Christmas.
Cindy also has a ministry of making greeting cards for men and women in the military. The project of creating these handmade cards is called Operation Write Home. The cards encourage people who are deployed to write to friends and loved ones. Check out the cards she has made.
