this is it
that time of year
when the cold, snow and lack of sun starts to get to me
like its gets really gloomy
this week is winter recess for my girls
so we've been home ... just relaxing. and not relaxing.
a combination of both.
the wreath was easy to make no tutorial necessary
just make a huge boat load of pom poms
and hot glue them to one of those floral wreath forms
add some ribbon and hang. that's all.
i just wanted to pop in to say hello
was thinking about all you guys
and how i'm blessed by you
blessed that you read my little blog
that you follow along here
it means a bunch of bunches to me.
i'm still working on
my crochet mood blanket project
but i really wanted to make this hat for my littlest little ...
this is a rug
so there CAN be happiness in a rug
oh you agree? yes. thank you.
still goin strong with the diy Bisquick kick
here's my original post but i've modified the recipe a few times
and i need to update that post
here are the ingredients i use now in case you want to try it :)
6 c.flour - 1/4 c. baking powder - 2 tbsp. sugar - 1 tsp. salt - 1 c. cold butter
add the dry ingredients in your food processor and pulse until all combined
cut cold butter into chunks and add to the processor
pulse until butter is in small crumbs and incorporated
i store ours in a sealed glass jar in the pantry ... we use it up so quickly!
my fam loves pancakes & biscuits
my peeps also love my little ponies
well 2 out of the 3 of my peeps
even though the hubs is so compliant when it comes to our pony obsession
that i'd consider that a type of pony love. hehe
have you seen?? go look!
valentines day is big around here
well i make it big. i love it.
it must be all the hearts or something
not that i like hearts all that much or anything.
heart lunches, heart dishes ...
yeah it's big
made some oatmeal butterscotch cookies for the hubs.
delivered them right to work
with some starbucks on the side
we made this garland in honor of the olympics starting and it was so so so much fun!
we learned a bunch about which flags belong to which country
and why they look the way they do ... a book from the library (or google)
and some colored paper is all you need!
are you guys lovin the olympics?
the girls love the figure skating
i love the half pipe snowboarder girls
the ones who rock the side braids
kinda like this day
when i was rockin a side braid. aaaaaand the sun was out
the sun never shows up around here
the other cool thing about the olympics is that they're in Russia
and nesting dolls are Russian
and there are lotsa cute nesting doll crafts
all over Pinterest
see how i just made the olympics crafty like that?
made these crocheted dolls a few years ago the pattern is from here
here's a few things i still want to make in honor of the olympics
(they're almost over? that doesn't matter) (shush.)
some days have been so so good
some days have been so raw
this past week i was really struggling with self-worth
believing i am worthy
worthy to be pursued
no one likes to feel un-pursued
decided the pursuing needed to start with me taking action
instead of wallowing in my unmet expectations
which i find myself so often doing.
a victim of my own miserable unmet expectations
i set myself up.
and it sucks.
the Lord specifically spoke quietly to my heart
(at 2am when i could not find rest or sleep at all which is so unlike me)
that He will meet all my needs & expectations
once i place those into His care & trust
i'll no longer place that unattainable burden on my husband
but it's so hard to do
cause he's here. present. in front of me. the physical.
and i love him so very much
but my Savior is seen and felt by faith
it's the spiritual. the non-tangible part of me that i so often don't want to tap into
for that feeling of worthiness
but that's the true source. it won't come from anywhere or anyone else
why is this so hard... i struggle
but then there's this
it tells me that He made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together ... He saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in His book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me O God
my first ever craft show!
and it was so so fun! i have a whole bunch of pictures to show
that'll be for a separate post soon
but that is my hottie back there behind the table :) he helped me set up
manned the cash box and was so supportive of the whole day.
he's so supportive of anything i dream up really.
and i really love him
out-grown my little pony shirts turned hoop art :)
thinkin of taking some custom orders for this kind of thing
just trying to figure out logistics for it ... hmmm
everything's better in a heart. even marshmallows
my studio was all cleaned and ready for craft night. it's never clean.
like really never.
more wife after God & cute hearts from here
so back to the wreath...
it's super fun
and it's winter-ish
but maybe i need to put a spring-ish wreath up now
go away winter.
we're all set with all your snow n everything
no really. i insist
happy weekend guys
