Productive Computer Time

Because two of our sons attend an online school, my usable time at my PC comes when they are finished. (My sporadic blog posts often reflect that...) I "volunteered" to teach one night of VBS for our church, so now my time logged into the computer is taken up with my PowerPoint creation(s).

My first project is turning out slightly awesome. The lesson is to teach the "bad news" of Jesus' death & contrast it with the "good news" of the empty tomb. The week's theme is GOLD RUSH, so I've made the PowerPoint into an old western newspaper. Here are a couple slides:

I'm still working on the "good news" slides, so I don't have one of them to show you.

While I was waiting for the computer this week, I found some time to work a little with wood...

I painted my board with that delish teal-y Home Depot "oops" paint I scored for this project.

Next I gave it a wash of white. 

I transfered & painted my lettering to end up with a sign for my hallway. (And if I had a wonderful SILHOUETTE machine like the one used by A Bowl Full of Lemons, just think how much easier my life would be...)

  1. You're a budding journalist in addition to all your other talents! You make me feel lazy! Love the sign too.


What do you think?
