Faith & Love Printables

While the Garage is a mess and it is hard to get my crafting stuff out I have been playing around with my computer programs.  I really like scripture art and so I made two more prints.
This one is Love with the verse  John 3 1-3 behind it.
 Then Faith with 1 Corinthians 13 4-7 on it.
I made printables for you and this time I made a color variation.  
The Faith and Love are semi transparent so you can see the writing under them.
I can see the yellow and Blue in a nice Summer theme with sea shells and candles.

Just click on the photo of the one you like and save it to your computer then you can re-size it to what ever you need and print! 
I hope you all have a great day!

California Fires

I live in Tehachapi  Ca. and it is the site of the West Fire.  We are thankful that the fire is on the other side of the valley but there are families that have lost it all.  

“I lost it all and some of my animals died,” said weary, red-eyed George Plesko at the evacuation center. “Mine’s burnt to the ground. I watched my 5,000 gallon tank burst open. I watched my house, my barn, my doolie trucks burn to the ground. I got out of there.”

We are on the list to take horses, cattle or any animal that needs pasture.  Unfortunately we cannot do much monetarily so we are offering what we can.  We are blessed that the Red Cross was on scene quickly and has shelter set up for the evacuees.  The fire crews came quickly as well and there are currently 800 fire personnel on scene.  
Please pray for the people who have lost homes and pray protection over the firefighters and all involved.   

My Hubby works for a local water district and was called to open some dip tanks yesterday and was awestruck at the devastation.  Sunshine cried when she heard and Moonshine offered to give his legos to the families.

This is not the only fire in Kern County There is also the Bull fire which has burned 15,982 acres so far.
As far as we know no one has been killed in either fire and pray that it stays that way.

I know this is not a usual post for me but I felt it important to post.

If you feel led you can also make donations to the Red Cross Kern County Chapter at their Web site

Flower Headband Cuz Everyone's doin it!

Okay finally yesterday Sunshine and I decided to get in on the fabric flower makin' trend.  I was inspired by the pink knit comfy pants I had.  I made them into shorts and had the leg part left.  Not wanting to just throw it away I thought about the flowers I had been seeing all over the net.  I saw in my reader that a blog I follow called Infarrantly Creative (who just so happened to like my Scripture Art) had shown that Oopsey Daisy had compiled a list of flower tutorials from all over the blog world Check it out HERE.  So I don't remember which one I looked at first but I got the general idea and we started rolling and twisting.   
Sunshine had some buttons and shiny stuff in her sewing box so we added them and took her Dollar Tree headband and glued them on.
Love the pink with the green fabric of the headband.
Super Cute! Super Easy! Super Cheap!
 Anything would look good on this head!  Ain't she cute??

Have you tried fabric flowers yet??

Organization part 4

So I must say we have been a little busy this week.  On the weekend we Went to Disneyland then Hung out at the Beach with my Brother and Sis in law.  The Kids have had VBS all week and I need a nap!  My wonderful Hubby has a full time job then he also runs his own equipment business.  In the afternoons he works sometimes till dark.  He is a busy guy.
See that's him in the backhoe! 
On top of all that he is a great Dad a wonderful Husband and now working at being a storage solution builder.

This is where we are 
He has all the pieces perilously balanced up so he can paint them.
I am getting super excited because they are looking great!
Here are the doors and drawer fronts.

So hopefully soon I will be able to do the final reveal!
Oh yeah there is the whole mess in the garage to clean first!  It may take a little longer than planned.
Stay tuned!

My Grandma Had them so I should too.

I was so excited when I stopped in the thrift store today and saw a complete set of Bible Story books. They were in perfect condition and they remind me of summers when I would visit my Grandparents.  My Grand mother would read to us sometimes before bed or throughout the day.  She had the set of these books and I am sure one of my Aunts has them now.  Hard back books are a $1 each but the girl decided to ask because she said childrens books were .25 cents each.  The nice lady that came back with her said that it was Gods word and she did not feel right charging for them.  So I took all 10 with me and left a $5.00 donation.  She was happy I was happy and my kids are excited to start reading them.  We all won!
 I also found this bamboo shaped green vase in another store for .25 cents.  I love the color and will be adding it to my small collection.
