DIY Phone Case

Hey Guys!
So, the other day my sister brought me her phone case and asked me if I could draw a design on it.
 It was just a plain, silver case for an iPhone 3.
I had recently discovered that Sharpies were actually a good tool to use when drawing on plastics because they're permanent, and if you get the right kind, are very colorful!
So, I decided to experiment with this.

Turns out, this was a Fabulous idea! You can do all sorts of designs. Like the one below....

Or... If you're feeling extra artsy... (like me at the time) You can do something a little more detailed!
Here's how mine turned out...

Anyway! (Of course I discovered this after Christmas) This makes a great gift idea!
Although, I would say that this would work best on a non-slippery surface. Sometimes if you don't let it dry long enough, (or if the case gets a lot of use) the marker starts to wear off. Also, this does NOT  work on gel cases... Sad! The marker just rubs right off.

I also discovered that you can draw on headphones, earbuds, and a boatload of other things that are made out of plastic.  

So, there you go! My first DIY! Whoop! *Fist Pump* (Although, this wasn't the most difficult thing to figure out on your own.) :p

Anyways! I hope your day is wonderful and filled with sparkles... or... never mind! :)

Verse Of The Day

Hey Guys!

I just thought I would post a verse that has really been an encouragement for me lately.

    Here you go...

(9)"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
(10) Who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy."
     1 Peter 2:9-10

I just thought this was a really cool verse! Just to think that the moment we step out of our prideful selves and into God's grace by accepting His Son, we obtain God's mercy and we become the people of God! And to think that anyone can obtain this amazing gift if they would just accept Christ and what Christ did for us. But to think (on top of all of this) that we are responsible for spreading these truths to the world.... That is such an awesome task and yet such a great promise!

I hope ya'll are having a great Saturday!

Merry Christmas

Okay! I know... I haven't been blogging as much as I would like to. My excuse? Life. Plain and simple. Life is sorta like a river, and when it sweeps you away... well... you really can't swim against the current.
   But! I am here to say that I am back! (at least for a little while)

Oh! And by the way,

                        Merry Christmas

from me to you. ☺

Please take the time to remember just who it is that Christmas is all about. (I'll give you a hint: His name isn't Santa Claus.)

Also, be sure to check out this amazing song.↓

It really helps to put the whole Christmas season into perspective.

 Checking out for now,

A Fresh Start!

Hey Everyone!
I hope that this post finds you all well.
Recently I've decided that I want to start blogging more frequently... (As you probably know, I haven't been the best at doing that lately.)
So anyways, I decided that I would update my Blog. New name, new address, new everything!
I'm pretty excited about the new look! What do you think?
Hopefully I'll be back with more posts soon!
