Sneak Peak

Here is a sneak peak of some furniture I am working on. I got this whole set for $125 - dining table, 6 chairs, hutch.

Ok, so right now it isn't the most attractive furniture you've ever seen, but it will be soon.

Stay tuned...


Scrapbooking is something I've always been interested in, but life is always so busy. For years I would pass by my black bag of scrapbook stuff and hear the paper and pens and embellishments calling to me. Unfortunately, I rarely found the time to listen.

Well, thanks to a friend of mine (that you can find at Carrie's Alley) I have finally gotten [back] into it again. I have also found many helpful blogs for making layouts and cards (you can find those by going to my profile and seeing who I follow).

Due to the inspiration from others I made the following birthday cards for some friends earlier this month.

Here are both of the cards I made. Similar in design with their own personal touches.

To personalize them I went with the initial of the first friend and age of the second.

Here is a close-up of the second.
(the stamp hit the paper sooner than I expected on this one - oops!)

I'll be posting some recent layouts soon. I meet with some friends once a month now and I'm actually getting some stuff done.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll be back!

Coming Back

Ok. So I've been gone from here for quite some time, but I am planning a come-back.

There are so many things I want to share that I've gotten overwhelmed and only stuck with devotionals. That's not all of who I am. I plan to start including some references to my book blog, One Rainy Afternoon, and pictures of pages I've created for scrapbooks and card I've made. If I find a good deal, I plan to share it with you, too.

There are many things that have kept me from accomplishing this goal, but the Lord used a devotional about envy to snap me out of it. I don't have to be super-skilled in one of these areas and have a separate blog with hundreds of followers, I can be me and share who I am. Just for fun.

I hope you'll join me!
