Pretty Things in Raya’s Room

Mama Donna here. I asked Raya’s permission to enter her “room” .  Most often, as I drop by her room, I catch her creating something,  or I just see the finished product on display, or I find her “inspiring” her heart and mind with books, magazines or DIY/craft websites.

She did say that her room can get messy.  I say it’s a pretty kind of messy that feels like a breath of fresh air.   So let me show you several products of her room, the factory of pretty things.

Let me start with what she does  with canvas boards (available in any bookstore):

Raya read the book, "Shiloh" for her HomesCool Reading/Language Arts. It was a story of a boy and a beagle. We then had some lessons on how to draw a beagle and then she did this on her own.

This is no longer in her room. It was sold for a little boy's room in an art exhibit by L'arc En Ciel.

As I look around Raya’ room, I see God’s blessing on her hands and her character. My prayer is that she will remain faithful  to Him and productive for His glory!

Proverbs 31:  13, 17-19 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.She sees that her trading is profitable,and her lamp does not go out at night.In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

Welcome to Raya’s Room !

Hello! Welcome to my room! Here in Raya’s Room you will see many DIY’s, crafts, sewing projects, and much more! Today, I am just going to show you around!

Here is my bed, where I sleep, read, and come up with ideas.

On my bed I have some handmade/machine sewed throw pillows. They really make my bed much more interesting!

Next to my bed is my desk. This is where most of the crafting is done.

As you can see it is quite messy….

And here is my favorite part of my room! I like to hang many inspirational quotes on this wall. It makes me very happy when I wake up.
