Remodeling Woes!!

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!!

Oh well….

2 VERY different cards

One of my FAVORITE bloggers: Jennifer McGuire has a 7-day challenge going with a fellow blogger. Each day they will share a card they both made with the same stamp. I could not believe how different both of these cards are..... but in I absolutely LOVE both of them!!

I've only got 15 minutes left in today to post.... and I skipped yesterday... YIKES!!
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!!

zipper flower

Here is my first day at fulfilling my commitment... so here goes:
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!!

Commitment to Post

You know what my pet peeve about blogs is?? Not posting regularly!!! I have wanted to get better about my blog.... I am embarrassed to tell people I have a blog because I don't keep up on it. But... I am going to post something everyday on this blog... a picture... a verse..... a card..... a doxie.... something.....
And if I don't make a posting, I will at least update my blog in someway..... then maybe it will be something I can be proud of!!!!
