For the Love of sewing.....

     I was raised around sewing and embroidery machines constantly running and was always fascinated by the intense and intricate work that my granny could do. I was in awe of how one woman could harness so much talent in two small hands. I would watch from afar at patterns being cut with extreme detail, measuring twice before cutting once, then hear the whir of the sewing machine and within what seemed like only minutes a beautiful dress, or robe was there in front of me. At the time I was only amused with "playing" with these machines and took great joy in being able to sit behind it and pretend to sew up an elegant dress, or table cloth. Of course I was never allowed to truly touch or use them, a caution I use today even with my own daughter.
     Looking back at the things I saw and had the privilege of knowing, not in my wildest dream did I ever have any intention of it becoming such a passion and area of work for myself. Now here I sit almost 20 years later and can not get enough of the sewing and embroidery world. There is still so much to see, so many techniques to learn and master. For now I enjoy bringing in a little extra income to our house and satisfying a craving for sewing and all things crafty. I have to say a special thank you to my granny, a woman of very many talents that range from sewing, painting to singing and so very many more. I can most definitely say I received these gifts from her, they are a special blessing God gave to her.

I have opened a small Etsy shop for anyone interested in any of the items I may showcase or make. Please take a look around and share with your friends and family. I try to keep my prices reasonable so that not only the kids look great, so that moms are happy to not have to spend a fortune.

Zoe's Baptism

This day I can most definitely count as one of the most emotional days I've been blessed to experience. Marriage, Births, and this Baptism are right on top of that list of amazing moments in my life. 

Zoe took her first step by accepting Christ with the help of an inspiring group of selfless people at our church, Decibel. They are there week after week, giving their time and talents. They teach our children on levels that they can understand and relate to. I am in awe of how they just give and give wanting nothing in return.  With that being said there is also a beautiful lady in our church with an incredible talent for photography who took the time to capture these moments on camera.  I am so thankful for this since I was too busy crying and rejoicing in this time with Zoe and my husband who had the privilege to baptize her. Praise be to God for these things He has done!

The Beautiful Wife

I have had the privilege to be in a small group called The Beautiful Wife. We are studying this book "The Beautiful Wife" By Sandy Ralya. When starting this group I found out that when these groups are going on Sandy herself is praying over us. Not only our church, but her...the very author of her book is praying for us.  You can email her to let her know you are hosting this group and she encourages you through special messages and prayer. I just think this is an amazing way to connect with an author who is passionate about women becoming a more beautiful wife!
     Throughout the last 6 weeks we have read, studied and journaled topics from Self-Care to Inviting Romance into your marriage. It has been a very deep, emotional and eye opening 6 weeks for me. There are areas in my marriage that were quietly hidden that have been opened raw and healed through prayer, journaling and sharing with this amazing group of women that I have come to love and support. It is easy to…

Marking off the Bucket List!

I don't know if anyone has a bucket list or if you aren't sure of what it is I will explain it. Basically it is experiences you want to have accomplished during your lifetime. I wrote out my bucket list in October of 2009 when my daughter Zoe was about to turn a year old. Since then I have added to it and marked things off as well. One of the things I have prayed for since having our first daughter was for her to accept Jesus as her Lord and follow in baptism.  The Sunday before last she did that very thing! She made the decision to believe and follow Christ! My heart has been over flowing with joy and excitement for her! We are so very proud of her, she is so sweet, loving and caring and my prayer is that she will always stay that way. She will follow in baptism the next time our church has it! So I get to mark another wonderful experience off my bucket list!
