I love to create things out of stuff that I already have. It's the thrifty part of me. I thought up this little denim bulb in my head two days ago
I thought maybe I could make these for family gifts . Or maybe if there is enough interest I can sell them. They are made with recycled denim. I little bit of sewing on the machine. Some hand sticking and a button from my mother-in-laws button stash.
So if you like them and would like two, they sell for $8.00 With shipping.
Give me a shout if your interested. If not, tell me what you think. Cute right?

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Outside my window...The sun is shining, the snow patches are melting, and the grass is asking if it's spring
I am thinking...Why do I think to much and complicate things
I am thankful...My God and Savior who is not complicated
From the learning rooms... We reading " Turn Homeward, Hannalee"and she is reading "Indian Captive"
In the kitchen...Just bakes chocolate chip cookies to warm the house up.
I am wearing... Jeans , warm long sleeve shirt and home made crocheted slippers.
I am creating...A lesson plan for our sewing group
I am going...Away next week
I am wondering...If today will be a better school day then it has been the last couple of days
I am reading..."The Gift of Dyslexia"
I am hoping...to get more yard work done
I am looking forward to...the homemade soup we will have tonight at dinner
I am hearing...the kids chat about silly things
Around the house...are piles of things that need a home
I am pondering...how to simplify my life
One of my favorite things...the smell of a wood stove burning pine wood
A few plans for the rest of the week:to lighten up and not be so worried about the things that i have no control over
Take a look at the other lovely daybooks .

This week has been one of those tough weeks for pretty much everything.
Kids are arguing, bickering,complaining ect.
I have even jumped on board with them. I have been yelling, complaining,grumbling and down right irritable.
I don't know about you, but I do not like the way I feel while all of this is going on. I wish I could erase all the hurt and pain that I make and also feel.
When I am in the middle of all the muck, I need to remember to reach out my hands and ask for help.
Help from the one who is always there.
Help when I don't think I need it.
Help and then fall to my knees and give it ALL to him.
So simple, yet not thought of during these challenging times.
A song comes to my mind.
" I'm falling on my knees, offering all of me, Jesus your all this heart is living for"
