Multiverse

I don't subscribe to the multiverse theory of the origins of the universe (God is much more plausible).

BUT it is a gift to science fiction writers. Especially when the different universes get confused.

15 Sam Carters trying to figure out how this happened, and how to fix it :-D

Garden-themed face painting

Last Saturday my neighbours asked me to do face painting at their allotment open day.

They suggested I didn't do full faces, as they can take a long time (although mine don't usually!) so this was a good chance to develop new designs.

I decided to go with a garden theme:

 
  • The rainbow is done by painting a sponge in stripes - or you could use one of those fancy striped paints. The stars and dots cover up the rough ends.
  • The fairy was an old design, but seemed appropriate.
  • No-one asked for the weather one, but I like it.

 
  • This is a new butterfly which I like much better than my old one - and is deceptively easy. It's based on a real butterfly (monarch), but I let them choose the colour.
  • Spiders and bees were both very popular, with both boys and girls.
  • The worms were difficult to get the pink paint opaque enough - fortunately only had to do one.

 
  • The background of the small flowers is done with a sponge rubbed on two colours of paint - I let them choose any colour.
  • I must have lost the leaves picture, because I didn't have it with me! I quite like it, though.
  • No-one asked for the big flower or apples.

Definitely easier not doing full faces, especially as you don't have to paint round their awkwardly screwed up eyes.

Several of these will be worth adding to my repertoire - maybe not the worms!

CROSS WORDS colouring pictures

I've added some new colouring pictures to my shop. I did these to fit with the themes for the evening communion services we had in my church over the summer (though I've added a few I missed). Style and complexity varies wildly, because I just did whatever I felt like at the time! Pictures are mostly from the LAMP PowerPoints. 



Other links: 
Here's the mini-sermon series.

And most of these were designed to a soundtrack of Resurrection Letters Prologue by Andrew Peterson - the first song is particularly appropriate.

And I also did a printable poster based on one of the colouring pictures:

Ribs & tigers

We had the story of the creation of Adam & Eve at Sunday School yesterday.
Naresh explained that Eve was made from Adam's rib.


7 year old: But if his ribs were taken out he wouldn't be able to survive.

Rib, not ribs :-D


Also, the kids had to guess the names of various animals from clues.
One clue started: "This animal has a big strong tail. Its hop is quite amazing..."
Another 7 year old's hand shot up: "A tiger!"
Even after repeating the clues (including ones about pouches and Australia) he insisted, to everyone's bemusement, that it was a tiger.

My dad thinks he may have an explanation: (scroll down)

A scary song

Scary in the sense of challenging.

Elegant armour

I found this lying around in my church.


I was amused to see the Farsi for 'belt' is very like cummerbund.
