Cow Costume

I made this costume for Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day this summer. However, add a halo and this would make an adorable "Holy Cow" costume for Halloween. Or, even wear it for "Western Day" if your school or community has that dress up day.

Paint Chip Bulletin Board

Bulletin board border for teachers is quite pricey and a bit boring. I like to mix things up and choose unusual borders with texture. And, I prefer to do it without spending a dime!

Happy Mail

I got two things in the mail yesterday; a check from a camp I worked at and this happy mail. My hubby was so surprised that I was more excited about the happy mail than the check!

Bible Journaling - Isaiah 25:4

For many years we were in a drought and I really got used to it not raining. This year, it seems to rain all the time. It's really weird. To top it off, I have a dog who is afraid of thunder and storms. I feel so bad for her because she gets scared so much more often now. This afternoon I was listening to the storms roll in and seeing the sky get dark and realizing that I would once again have a scared little buddy. I thought about how God protects us and keeps us safe. He is our shelter in the storms of life. Isaiah 25:4 says, "You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm, and a shade from the heat."

T-Shirt Redesign

During summer vacation, I have decided that it would be really good if I could have a checklist of things to do just like we sometimes give our kids.  Here is mine so far: Create something Physical activity Sunshine Clean or declutter something Read or learn something new So, on Day 3 of summer, I decluttered my old t-shirts.  Many of these shirts have sentimental value so I've hung on to them. But, I never wear plain t-shirts. I just don't like plain men's tshirts. On the other hand, I feel like I never have any casual tshirts to wear around the house. Instead of just throwing them out, I refashioned them. Leave me a comment on what else I should add to my daily summer list.

Card Making

 Here are some cards that I've made lately.

Bible Journaling - Psalm 3:3

Studio Craft Room Tour

Last summer, I totally updated and revamped my studio or craft room.  I like calling it my studio because that sounds so much more fancy.  Here is the video of the updated space.  Keep reading if you would like more information and want to see the before pictures.  Originally, I planned to show all the before, during, and after footage in the video but that would take too long so the video is just the after. My room was once a porch that was converted to a sun room.  There were no electrical outlets and only a porch light on the wall.  I used extensions cords plugged into other rooms.  My wonderful hubby helped me by adding a ceiling light (light was cheap from IKEA) and giving me an outlet. The one wall has exterior siding and a window into my son's bedroom.  Around two edges at the top, you see the rafters (or whatever that's called). I thought about covering it up but to add sheet rock at that angle would be difficult and probably not turn out great.  So, I used them

Bible Journaling - Daniel and the Lions' Den
