I am pretty excited about this new space finally ready crafty goodness, and if the Lord is willing I hope to really spend time honing my skills this year. Having said that, I am retiring this blog.. It has been a blessing and has been good for a season. That season is over, and I look forward to a new chapter in my creative, spiritual and online life. I am praying that I will find a way for those to all be seamless and to God's glory alone.
I do want to express my thanks to each and every one who has commented and encouraged me along the way here. Kindness is always appreciated and some of your comments helped to sustain me on some very down days. I will cherish some of them always.
With no further ado, may the Lord bless and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
Soli Deo Gloria

I have really been learning how impatient I am AND how perfectionism can get a grasp on me so I can fluctuate wildly between the two. It is my desire and prayer to just be more even keeled and enjoy the day, the process and even the imperfections. We all know that perfect is a lie anyway, right?
That's all for today, and I already have my post done for tomorrow with my room reveal (sort of) to finish out 2013. It has been a fast and full year for my family and I am hoping for a blessed new year that is at least a tad bit less transitional!

This is a photo of my newly planted crab apple tree in a recent ice storm. I will be back soon for a lengthy year end post with some photos of recent work and direction for the new year. In the meantime, I want to wish each one who reads this post a very Merry Christmas in celebration the incarnation of Christ..
God did an incredible work in sending His only begotten Son into the world and providing us with a salvation we do not deserve. Praise the Lord for that moment in which “the Word became flesh.” We are now redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:19).

I thought I would share some collage photos of some work in progress first...
Now, for a collage of my master bedroom (which I am very happy with)
From the time I was a young girl, I wanted to be a wife and mother. I have done many other things and have worked most of my life...only being a full time homemaker the last couple of years. It is not a popular life choice esp. since I don't have a bunch of little ones...but I have never been more content than I am right now making our house a home and loving my family. I am finding joy in making my bed, packing lunches and providing yummy dinners for my guys. We are blessed, but our pleasures are truly simple and I love it that way! One more photo and a thought to share on the Friday....
May the grace and peace of Christ be with you

It is times like these when I wish I had a sister....or a close friend that lived within 100 miles! Buying and decorating a new home with a specified budget SHOULD be fun...but I would love to share that process at least in part. Since that isn't going to happen in real time for now...I thought I would ask you guys for some feedback :-D. I am going to post two options for curtains in my craft room....I would love it if you tell my which one you like more. These options are both from an etsy shop.....
|Option #1 Fun Chevron|
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
|Option#2 Equally fun more random pattern|
