The Adventures Of Molly Mouse


I've had an idea for awhile, for a book about Molly and her geocaching adventures.
In my head, it's actually a series of books.

But on paper (or more accurately, in a digital file) there currently IS one book - I wrote one!
I'm working on the illustrations now.  Because this has been an idea for awhile, I've been taking photos of Molly to use in the book.  With some creative photo editing, I think these just might work.

The above image is the first draft of the cover.

I'm not exactly sure where I am going with this yet.  I know I will at least self publish a few copies for my grandson, nieces and nephews, and maybe a few extra to take to geocaching events, to see if there is any interest.  

No matter what I end up doing with the final project, I'm having a ridiculous amount of fun putting it together.  

If you'd like to see more of what Molly is up to, you can see her adventures on Instagram under the hashtag #TheAdventuresOfMollyMouse

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here - http://www.christinakline.com/homiletics-crash-course/
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.

Next The Fonts:

This site has links to all of the fonts on the poster above http://colormemeg.com/2013/01/free-chalkboard-fonts-printable.html (most of my favorites are on her list, so I didn't see any sense in replicating it. Plus, she did it better than I would have.)
I personally recommend going to Dafont and d…
