What do you think?

Hey all

Wanted to post some pics of the boys clothes I made this weekend. I was able to use a dress shirt and a T-shirt that Chris never wears to make these cute little outfits. Let me know what you think.


A Great Day

Without going into great detail things have been interesting around here. It has become more than clear to me that God is working in our lives in ways I've not seen before.

Something left us disheartened and kicking against God Sunday... I knew there was work going on but wanted my own way/picture. I had no idea God would work on me so heavily through the night, while I slept, and not stop all through Monday.

I love how God uses people who love and care us to intervene when He could just, simply, put the "Wammy" on us. We didn't think we could do it but God put people in our paths to encourage and give GODLY counsel. There's nothing like it.

Thank you Lord for your tender guidance and love. Your ways truly are higher and better than my own. I am underserving of the love You show and I am humbled by your generous hand of blessings.

Amen and Amen!!!


My Mother's Day!

Today has been a great day. Nothing special happened but church was amazing and my sweet family got me a couple GREAT gifts. Thanks to the sweetness of my husband and Renee I got a beautiful skirt from Lane Bryant and a brand new SEWING MACHINE! It is super awesome.

Needless to say, I've been sewing all day! I worked on a patchwork quilt that I started before my old machine died last year. It's going to be very cute. I also made a dress. I am attaching pics of the dress because I need your help.

I need to know whether or not you think I should add things like this to me Etsy Shop. I need input so I figured this was the best place to go! Let me know exactly what you think. I can take it so let me have it! ;-)


The struggle.

I'm struggling today.
That's all.
