They make a great gift for yourself or for someone that's hard to buy for too!! I'm selling them for $25 each with a ruffle and for $20 each just plain. I'd love to make one for you or someone you know!

It's almost too cute to cook in. But it will sure beat getting your clothes stained!
I have a few for sale. $25 each of you're interested. They are very well made, pre-washed and ready to go!
Now I'm worn out...and so is my little helper!

It started with making a sewing pad out of some scrap fabric
Then making a few nursing covers from some too cute fabric (for sale $30 ea.)
Then I turned an empty 20x50 frame into a wire collage. I've had this frame for at least 3 years because I got it at Hobby Lobby for $8 and had no idea what to do with it. So with some wire, hot glue and the tiniest clothes pins I've ever seen...I now have. Cute little photo collage in Walkers play area.
Who knows what tomorrow holds:)

On the perfect sewing room
Boxes stacked and labeled
Cute fabrics lining the walls
But then I read on one of my favorite blogs
That she began sewing on her kitchen table because it was the only place she had
So I took the initiative to turn the kitchen table into a sewing table, used the chairs as shelves and boxes as organizers.
On a deeper end, don't we do this with a lot of things? I do.
I can't work out because a gym membership costs too much. So I borrowed a treadmill
I can't read the bible regularly because I don't know where to start. So I use the YouVersion app and reading plan.
There aren't many outlets for moms at my church. So I've been getting plugged in at the library and through other groups.
I'm learning that I need to take more initiative, use what's been given to me, make more of an effort to reach out to others and bring Glory to Him through every situation - perfect or not!!

Back in November during cake class Dana and I had drooled over these trees because I couldn't fathom paying so much for them but I really liked them!
We got a few other Christmas goodies at 90% off like 2 huge wreaths, some door hangings and berry garland. If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby you should check and see if they have any Christmas treasures left! Be careful though, you might have to fight your way to a good find!!

Full of surprises, family, friends, food, snow, laughter, recreation, singing, games, sleeping, driving, talking, celebrating and reminiscing.
It was a memorable time of refreshment, joy and love. I'm so thankful that my family got to enjoy this Christmas and celebrate the birth of our Savior!
