Encouraging Word Wednesday Week #6

It's pumpkin patch time, go spend some special time with your family. The memories will last forever.

Isaiah 22:24
All the glory of his family will hang on him: its offspring and offshoots—all its lesser vessels, from the bowls to all the jars.

Encouraging Word Wednesday Week #5

This week will be another very quick post. I had a whole thing I was going to write but today is just too jam packed, so I wanted to get on here real quick to post something encouraging.



Fave Foto Friday Week #4

Welcome to Fave Foto Friday Week #4!

I hope you all have had a good week. Mine overall has been pretty good. I'm so happy to be back in jeans, sweaters, warm pajamas and warm shoes.

This weeks post is all about cute projects or ideas that use fabric. There are so many cool fabrics these days with funky patterns and colors. I just love when I someone with a funky colorful bag or skirt. Makes me want to get more acquainted with my sewing machine. Just wish the fabrics didn't cost so much. When you're frugal like me, I can usually pick up a skirt for much cheaper than what it would cost to make, but I can still dream.

These are my favorite finds and hopefully someday I can actually make these.

I actually am attempting to make this one, I have a bunch of fat quarters, which is what this uses, so I thought I'd give it a try. Who knows how long it will take.

This is something I have to try for next summer. A tank top with fabric sewn on for skirt. What a cute dress!

If I could afford a pair of Tom's that I could possibly destroy, because you never know, I would have to do this. I want these soooo bad!

Diaper bag or purse, I love it either way.

And last but certainly not least. I fell in love the moment I saw this. Have, have, have to do this! I have to find these fabrics, hope I can. The second to last blue scallop fabric on the live model is the same as the border on my Leslie's Boutique wet bag, so cute.

Hope you enjoyed all the colors. Maybe you can try one of these and share your work with me. I would love to see! Have a great weekend!


ABC Scripture Challenge Word #1, Anchor

Welcome to the ABC Scripture Challenge. I found this challenge on Patter Cross's blog Triple the Scraps recently while perusing some blogs I follow. Around that time I was looking for something fun to do and here this was. A way for me to craft, study the bible and share it on my blog. I'm starting very late in the year but Patter has the inlinkz up for quite a while so I have time to catch up and post my thoughts and pages. The challenge is to study a word in the bible from each letter of the alphabet, share your thoughts on the verse or verses you find that pertain to that word and create a memory page about that word and scripture. Patter announces the new words that you are to study.

Challenge Word #1 Anchor

To me an anchor can mean to be secure, whether it's not moving because the anchor is set or the feeling of safety. My anchor in this storm called life is God. He gives me security when I cannot find it any other place.

Another way I look at the word anchor is by thinking of my faith. Had I not been anchored with my strong faith in my early adolescence, I wouldn't have had it to turn back to after years of trying to control my own life without God and failing miserably. That anchor of faith kept me grounded and though I strayed far away, when I was ready I was able to follow that rope back to find my anchor, Jesus.

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.

2 Samuel 22:33
