On a Walk

Down the staircase I saw this little face.
This is a helicopter seed that we threw in a web to get the spider out from hiding...
She is the most talented helicopter seed thrower

Music Flowers

Well... I took amazing GUITAR STRINGS that my brother in law gave me.
Cut and folded them enough so they would just barely fit out of the vase (1$ at dollar tree btw)
Cut pieces of fabric in circles progressively getting smaller.
Sew with sweet button.

TRICK- with the guitar strings that do not have a little circle that makes it easy, weave the end of the guitar string in and out of a button and then sew on the circles and sweet button.

Outfits to think about.

I went to youth group last night wearing this ensemble and I was so enthused that so many people commented! - not because I care so very much if students like my clothes, but because it makes a shared interest and a way to connect- and that my friends is a sweet thing!

A little end of summer cleaning

Couldn't really find anything in the crazy space.
So just like my dad taught me I put everything in a box
Added some jars for storage... and I think they give the room some character... it is a bathroom after all
And here it is! This is

one last thing!

This is a just a little tiny one.

a little watercolor

a thank you note
from a photo from Cali
baking cookies


its better when they both work together
:) just like Pb + J
BUT Sometimes our hearts or emotions go crazy and we stop thinking.
Sometimes we only use our minds to know God

The whole picture
a little something I have been feeling recently...

2x DiY Room ideas...

if you click on the picture it makes it look much less blurry. Not sure why that is happening. SO please click on the picture!

thank you

#1 uno
We wanted the youth at our church to have more opportunities to express themselves...
so we gave them journals
we want to put their art on display in the room, as well as poetry
we are asking for their help doing various jobs

and we used spray chalk board paint to make a strip they can use chalk on!

This is the messy-ness you must make in order to have such a big mess afterwards
I do suggest though to use the can paint and the not the spray.
(I am finding paint in my tissues after I sneezE!!!)

Below is the MAN cleaning up...

AND here is the final product!

#2 dos
