Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Doodle 101/ Tea


I recently read an article about Abiding in Christ in which the writer referred to 2 different kinds of tea drinkers…the “Dippers & the Abiders.”

Dippers are in a hurry, and dip their tea bag repeatedly for several seconds, and then discard it.  They are in a hurry to get their tea and move on.

Abiders, put their tea bag in the cup and let it steep…waiting for the full development of flavor.

I happen to love tea &  I am definitely one who likes a strong cup. This analogy will be a constant reminder to me to STEEP… remembering not to “grab” a quick word, but to rest in it…listening to the Holy Spirit so that I don’t miss the full development of  “flavor”…within God’s perfect revelation.

Ps. Here is a link to the article I mentioned!

    • Karen, start with a simple shape. (square or short rectangle)
      If you need a jumping off point, you could even find a square shaped object around the house (like a small box or food container) and trace it with pencil. For the cup, use an object shaped like a circle to “shave off” the bottom corners of the square, making them round for the teacup.

      For the tea bag, do a similar process, but “cut off” the top corners with a straight line, instead of a rounded line. Does that make sense to you? Practice with a pencil, erasing what you don’t like, until your happy with it, then go over your drawing with permanent ink pen, erasing all the pencil lines when the ink is dry:) Hope that helps!! Let me know if you need more instructions! Bless you!
