What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

If you look in my sidebar, you will see I created a little something I like to call my "Photo Guestbook".

I created the Flicker badge so that we can all get to know each other just a tad bit better. To put a face with a name, as it were.

As you can see, my badge entitled "Renaissance Readers" looked a bit pathetic with only MY photo. Then, I scrounged a photo of my hubby without his knowledge~after all, I need SOME support! Even that looked measely so I added one of both of us. As you can tell-I need you people to help me out!!!!

So, here's how it works. I created a Flicker Group called Renaissance Readers. It can be found here...


All the readers, family and friends of Renaissance (or the girl behind the screen called Rebecca) are hereby cordially invited to sign my guestbook and slather their lovely faces all over my blog! I wish I could get that flicker badge to be a bit bigger....

Just join my group and send me a photo! They will be displayed in my sidebar for me to look at lovingly when I read your comments and for everyone else to see to! What fun! I got the idea from another blog, who has almost 800 readers and it works smashingly well over there! It is so fun to see all the fun pictures of everyone!

Now I KNOW I don't come close to that number. Not even close to a FRACTION of that number....but SURELY I could get a few?!?

If you already have a Flicker account-send your photo to the group! If you don't and have no desire to start one...email me a photo of you at my newly 'guestbook' designated email: renaissancereaders@yahoo.com

Finally, don't forget to add your message under "Add Note".

Hoo-weeee!!! This is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to put a face with your name!!! Wa-hoo!!!

(PS.Don't think you have to use magazine perfect photos! I want to see the REAL you. The quirky, the fun, the sweet, and the silly!)

Can't wait to see all the great mugs!

****Edited to Add:*****

Wanted to encourage everyone, again, to include your blog address (if you have one) under your photo so people can visit your blog after viewing the photos. Free blogvertising? No-just trying to convince you to participate! hehehe

Also~ Thanks to Terri! She was my first reader to share her photo! Thanks so much Terri-and it is good to SEE you! :-)

I hope I don't end up being the only one who sends you a picture. It looks so weird to see all these pictures of you and Matt flashing over to the right and then some stranger stuck in there! LOL!!!!

Don't worry Terri! I have five people in line right now. They have to first be accepted to the group THEN they can post a photo. That is why it is taking so long. I think I am going to steal a few photos of my family that I KNOW read my blog to add them today too. So~ no worries! ;)

Right now, it says that 'Flikr is having a massage'. How cute is that? ,-)

Mmmmmm... You know my face. :-)

Let's see.... I think the best way is to send you that pic of me, with the straw hat on. And in the e-mail, I'll put the link to my profile, 'cause I've got 4 blogs now. Eeek. lol.
