Something Different

This idea came to me as I was completing a Bible lesson. The verse inside here is from Isaiah and says:

"They will be oaks of righteousness,
a planting for the display of His splendor."

It speaks of the strength we receive from God and how His glory shines through us and how He enjoys us as His children.

I made this from a cereal box. I used butcher paper for the trees and I had an oak leaf stamp. I used textured paper for the grass and water. I used a "believable" blue for the sky/background.

Dress Form Creations

I have a twin! It's a Double Deluxe dress form. I've contemplated getting a dress form for some time and I found this one on These are my first 2 projects using it and I am pleased with how they turned out.

This gray dress is a copy of one I saw online used on the "Uniform Project". You really should check out that blog. A gal wore this same dress for a year and used different accessories and such everyday to make it look different. It can also be worn with the buttons in the front or the back so it is extremely versitle. This young lady was doing this for a fund raiser to send kids to school. VERY cute ideas with her many outfits.


Yes, they turned out SO good.

One More Thing.....

This is another addition to the living room. I had spied this back last fall and drooled over it, but didn't buy it. I looked at it again during the winter. Still didn't buy it. I went shopping with my friend, Stephanie, and it really pulled my heartstrings. So...I bit the bullet and bought it. I'm really glad I did. It's just what that corner needed.

The Pop Up Camper Redo

I have a picture of the outside of our pop up on a previous post. Now you get to see what the inside looks like. I added my own touch by making all new curtains and covering the seat cushions. I used painter drop clothes. I prewashed them so now when they get dirty I just throw them in the machine. Now...after getting these pictures up loaded I realized that things look a bit messy, and there is stuff sittin' around. Just look over that. It was a camping trip after all.

I Was Feeling Adventurous Today

Those of you who know me know that I do not enjoy messin' in the kitchen. But today I felt like broadening my horizons. I had a hankerin' for some homemade cinnamon rolls. My sister, Inez, made cinnamon rolls when she was in home ec and OH they were so good. I've NEVER used yeast but today I did. I'm so pleased with myself. Now let's see how they turn out.

Little Stinkers

Todd was out taking care of our chickens when along came a momma skunk and her 6 babies!  Notice the tails sticking up in the top photo.
