Some Of My Favorite Quotes

God blesses this kitchen he doesn’t clean it.

If you bow before God, you can stand before anybody.

If there’s dust on your bible, there’s dirt in your life.

When you are down to nothing, God is up to something.

Exposure to the Son prevents burning.

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible.

Try a little harder to be a little better

Simple pleasures are life’s treasures

Love means holding hands, not grudges

In our home let love abide, and bless all those who step inside

A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul 

Be patient... God's timing is always perfect.

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.

Keep your flame lit and you will never feel darkness.  ~J. Parker

You can bend it and twist it… You can misuse and abuse it… But even God cannot change the Truth.~ Michael Levy

Forgiveness hides a pleasure that you can’t get back from revenge.

Husbands are awkward things to deal with; even keeping them in hot water will not make them tender. ~ Mary Buckley

When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us? ~ Pam Brown

Creativity is believing you have greatness. ~ Wayne Dyer

Silhouette Give Away

I have never even attempted to win one of these give aways but I am really crossing my fingers and saying my prayers on this one. How awesome is the Silhouette?? and to think I could have one of my very own??  I would love her and I would call her Velma. LOL, I get all giddy just daydreaming about it. Well my my lovely friends you can enter too!  Head on over to and check it out for yourself! Best of Luck!
This is my son Chase on Christmas and this is EXACTLY what I would look like if I won! HEEHEE

Twigs & Twine

So I was looking at some blogs today and saw a lot of people using regular old twigs in their crafts. How cool is that?   I saw some twig trees used for decorating and jewelry displays and thought I would give it a try. I got a plain jar (actually it is a spaghetti sauce jar that I scrubbed out but shhh don't tell) and decorated it by wrapping some twine around the top & bottom and also mod podged  some cute scrap paper. I added the twigs and it just didn't do it for me. I thought the twine was cute on the jar so I started wrapping the twigs in twine and LOVED it!! I did the "jar o twigs" and then also made a cross. All with some twigs, twine, Mod Podge and Glittery Nail Polish!! Woohoo! I love it! For the cross I also tediously made the little circle for the middle :) What do you think?

Block Makeover

I have been staring at these blocks all day....
I knew I wanted to do SOMETHING with them because they aren't even decorated on the back. I came up with spelling out HOME and painted it on with some crafting glue and then sealed it in with some glittery nail polish :)

I also thought some lines of twine would give it a nice finishing touch. As always, I would love to hear what you think :)
