Creating Frenzy!

Just a few weeks ago I was inspired by a tote bag that one of my friends was carrying and it was super cute. I asked her where she got it and of course, she said, "Yard Sale." Of course. No chance of rushing right out and buying one. Then I thought about it. I'll just make it. So I had lots of leftover fabric at my house and I went home and started thinking about my plans. Now I'm making the bags like crazy and loving them. I'm getting better at my process with every bag I make. I will definitely be posting some pics soon so you can tell me what you think. All for now.

Photography: Fix-It Friday #66

Well, it's that time again. We cheated for Fun Food Friday and had AppleBees, but that's ok. It's actually really hard to get all of us in the kitchen anyways :P. Since I can't talk about what I didn't cook we'll talk about my Fix-It Friday with I Heart Faces. Our pic this week was taken by Angie Arthur. I will post the before and my edits will come after. I really hope you enjoy. All for now.

A Troubled Heart

Well, you know that sigh of relief you should feel when you have everything in order. Well, I had that, for a minute. I was relieved when I finished buying the curriculum for this school year even with the little snag of moving right after school starts. Our school year at Frisk Academy is set to start on September 6th and we're moving in September. That's not even really bothering me. I can get set up pretty quickly and I already have a daily schedule planned. What's bothering me now you ask. My sister is going into rehab as I type. Tonight my dad, with her permission is entering her in a 7 day detox program. My heart aches for her and my little niece. This is the same niece that was at the birth of in March. I wish I could be there, but I know everything is taken care of. My dad assures me that little miss is going to be very well taken care of while my sis is detoxing. When you say your daily prayers, please add my sister to that list and especially little miss. All for now.

My Crazy Full Week

Holy Cow! What a crazy week it has been. This past week our church had our VBS program which is always amazing and my kids had a blast. It makes me feel so great to hear my kids reciting memory verses that they have learned or to be singing the songs they've sung all week. Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:00 and 8:30 we were at the church and then Friday was Big Man's 6th birthday. That I'm still reeling from. How is my son 6 already? We woke up early on Friday and headed to the zoo. It is very interesting to walk through the zoo in 110 degree heat. You can go through quite a lot of water. Friday night we headed back to the church for the last night of VBS. Saturday night we had big man's party with beef pizza (his favorite) and dirt cake. Yummo! It was so awesome. Now my week is winding down and I get to start a new one. Check out some of the pics from this wonderful and full week. All for now.
