I created a printable checklist for you all for spring cleaning! It details what I do in each room. The checklist is awesome because you can slide it into some page protectors, then use dry erase markers to mark through what's finished. In this way, you're able to keep track of what's been done. My … Continue reading Spring Cleaning Checklist
Tiny floral fabrics seem to be popping up everywhere! I had the opportunity to pick up a bundle of Robert Kauffman's Sevenberry from Etsy. The flowers are oh so tiny and beautiful! I don't have a plan for this bundle yet. Have any ideas? I hope you have a lovely day!
As you may know, my guild is hosting a block swap in a few weeks. I signed up for the category of "travel". Since my latest travel was to England to visit my husband, I took the opportunity to make blocks that are somewhat like the union jack. I played around with the colors, since … Continue reading My Travel Block
I read voraciously. Between audio, digital, and print, I have more than a few books going at one time. I'm finishing up a book that I thought I'd share with you. It's called "The Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod. I'm listening to this one on audio, and I lo-hu-huve it!! What is a miracle morning? … Continue reading What Am I Reading? #1

One of my favorite tenants of a good marriage is a sense of humor. In particular, life runs smoother if we can laugh at ourselves! I found this comic quite funny, because we all have the forgiven list, the minor things we just ignore! While searching for this comic to use today, I found mountains … Continue reading Marriage 101-Humor

There hasn't been much sewing going on lately! Life is busy, and has not allowed me time to dig in and tackle a sewing project. In my few minutes that I catch here and there for crafting, I've been making planner stickers. While I know that's not the focus of this blog, I thought I'd … Continue reading Non-Sewing Craft
Somewhere in my readings in life, I came across some sage advice. An older woman said she enjoyed an event three times, not just once. First, she fully enjoyed the anticipation of the affair, whatever it might be. She took time to think about what to wear and how to arrange her hair. Those things … Continue reading Enjoying an Event
I listen, and I listen some more. I see the hurt in her eyes, and the pain this divorce is causing her. She's a young woman, but old enough to realize that words and actions have consequences. She has children, and her own struggle and hurt is reflected in their eyes. What has caused her … Continue reading Hope Thou in God
