So, I had some extra time today, and I was poking around shimelle's site.... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, her inspiration.
Well, I came across THIS journaling idea. I think that I am going to attempt it. I have always wanted to take pictures for a whole year... and now I think that I will give it a try!!! I am looking forward to it!!!! You know..... this MAY BE my last year!!!!
PS - have you seen the WONDERFUL doxie valentines @ Target??

Well, I have some much deserved time off from work!!! I don't have to go back to work til 2011. So, I was catching up on my blogs, and sorting through some of my emails... and came across this blog entry. I follow this blog pretty regularly. She had a challenge going for last year - but, I didn't participate!!! This year her challenge is every other week she will post a word relating to God. Then our challenge is to go to the Bible and find scriptures that are meaningful to us based on the word posted for that week. She will go through the alphabet 26 words - 26 weeks!!! Then, we can make a scrapbook page/journal entry/card - anything we want. I just thought this might be a great thing to do for the new year!!!!

Didn't realize how long it had been since I last posted!!! I've been making cards, and collecting ALL KINDS of cute doxie pics. I hope to have some more time in the next few weeks.
Here is a picture that I don't EVER want to lose... it is just too cute!!!

I am home today – trapped with my "crazy doxies" and a construction worker.
We are getting our bathroom remodeled – VERY EXPENSIVE – but, worth it. Don't think we could sell the house without getting it done. We don't have plans on reselling in the near future – but, I don't think we are going to retire here!!
So, anyway… I hate being STUCK home. Don't mind being home when it is MY choice – but, I have the most flexible schedule – so that left ME to be home.
Trying to stay focused on the things that need to get done… but, would much rather just lay down and watch a movie!!

Well, tonight and tomorrow we are having VBS at our church... I know.... Friday night and all day Saturday??!!??!! What is that all about?? I thought the same thing.... But, I think this is going to be good. Tonight went well. Tomorrow, I am going to be teaching 2 different Bible stories, 4 times each. It should be fun!! it will be a long day - but I hope a rewarding day!!
Tonight we had Robin Garvin come with her special friends.... what a special lady!! I loved every minute of it. And our AMAZING children's pastor pulled off a wonderful night for children!!! Thanks Pastor Becca!!
Hopefully more tomorrow... if I'm not COMPLETELY wiped out!!

I was "surfing" around and saw a ZIPPER FLOWER. I like it - but, I thought, "Hey, I can make those just as easy as anyone else!!" So I googled and found lots of these - but, wasn't sure I liked to pointiness of them. So, I kept searching and found this tutorial. I think I REALLY liked it. I know that my mother has LOTS of zippers. So, I think I will have to ask her.
Now the question that I KNOW my daughter would ask me. "So, what are you going to do with them after you make them?"
I just have not created in SO long!!! I really do need to do something!!
Hope I can post a picture soon....
Oh yeah.... I saw this zipper bracelet... way different... but kind of quirky!!

THAT IS MY COMMITMENT!!!

My church, La Palma Christian Center, has a Military Ministry. We spend all year making Christmas cards, and write letters to troops. When the troops write back, we put the letters in an album. They recently changed from 8 1/2 x 11 to 12x12. I volunteered to make the album cover. The cover reads: La Palma Christian Center; Letters from the Troops; Military Ministry.
We wanted to separate the letters by years. I was so proud of both of these pages.
I bought a box of Christmas scrapbooking stuff at Tuesday Morning (my new favorite source of supplies!!) I had decided last year that I would make a few Christmas cards every month, and then when December came around, I would be ready with homemade Christmas cards to mail out. Well, I have only made 4 cards... but... I MADE FOUR CARDS. I am so please with myself. This is just one of them. I really like this one.. and think I can duplicate it in some fashion.

I had a good time. It was fun, and different. The only problem was that I had to use an oversized envelope. It was okay, I had bought some, so I just made sure that I made the circle the right size to fit into the envelope. I made this card for my special friend Cheri, for her 27th birthday!!The inside of the card says: Just want to tell you that you're special and to wish you all the joys of a wonderful birthday!
Here is a card that I stamped a heart onto burlap. I thought it turned out very well. I was impressed. I only made one. Which I hardly ever do. I always feel that if I am going to make a card - I am going to make several at the same time.... But, I really liked this one, So, I am going to make some more. But probably not so many buttons this time!!
