A Rainy Day

To me, rain is beautiful and it is a picture of God's divine and miraculous power.
It is a part of His wonderful world.

He made everything for His glory and for our enjoyment.

And that is just what we do... we enjoy everything around us.

"The Earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalms 24:1

Yesterday was a cold and rainy day.

It drizzled all day long.

But, I really enjoyed trying to get pictures of the rain falling.

I stayed outside(under the eaves of our house) for about thirty minutes and took over fifty pictures! But, after a while it got too cold and I had to come inside.

These are just few of my favorite pictures.

Can you see the rain falling in the background?

The day ended with a beautiful sunset.

The colors were so bright and vibrant.

The colors in these pictures aren't even near as bright as it truly was.

This is another picture of God's miraculous power.

More soon!!!

My Projects

This is what I have been working on these past two weeks.
I got an order for ten half aprons and ten flower add-ons.
All of the aprons are for two, four, and six year olds.
It was really difficult trying to cut down the pattern for the aprons into three different sizes.
These are just a few pictures of the aprons and flower add-ons.

These two are my favorites.

My flower add ons.
I call them flower add ons because you can put them on your blouses.

Put them in your hair or put them on your headbands.

And put them on your purses.

You can add them onto anything.

More later!

My Craft Room and Latest Projects

We have spent the better part of this week converting our loft into a craft/play area.

Our craft room has always been in my bedroom.

But now, we moved all of my furniture, fabrics, and other craft supplies upstairs.

I now have a lot more room to sew, draw, and work on crafts.

My bedroom now has a lot more space and seems bigger.

My Dad made a lamp shade out of a tomato cage and we covered it with fabric, and added ribbon, and paper flowers.

Here are some pictures of it.

My mom and I made wall flowers and tacked them up onto the wall.

We are hoping to add more soon.

This is the furniture that we have up there.

The fabric that is laying over the arm of the love seat is what we are going to make pillows out of.

This is our craft/play area.

These are a few projects that my mom and I have been working on.

Fabric bracelets.

And rosette rings

More soon!!!

Fiesta/Fair Weekend

Last Saturday, we went to Texas for a fiesta/fair. Me and my family had a booth along with some friends and my Aunt Jess.
I sold my homemade aprons, camera straps, bookmarks, pin cushions, and accessory pins.
My friends sold their homemade hair pins, plush owls, candle boxes, baked goods, felt wallets, and coasters.
And my aunt displayed her photography.
Our booth was full!!!
Here are some pictures of our booth.
It looks like he is enjoying that sucker!

Look at how messy he got!

Our trip to Texas was short but fun!
I enjoyed seeing family and friends.
We had a birthday party for my cousin and a surprise party for a friend.
My cousin turned 10 last Monday.
And my friend's birthday was last Sunday.
My Grandmother was able to come back here with us and she is going to stay for 2 weeks!
So far we have really enjoyed our time with her.
Before we went to Texas I was really busy!
I had a lot of sewing to do and I had school and chores.
I am very thankful because my family helped a lot with everything!
I recently read Corrie ten Boom's book, "The Hiding Place".
I read it once last year and wanted to read it again this year.
I really enjoyed it and encourage you to read it if you haven't.
It is an amazing story of a woman and her family that lived during the time of World War II.
It is a story of her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
And how she and her family changed many lives.
I hope to blog more soon!
God Bless!
