Welcome!

Welcome!

I’m so glad you’re here!  If you like fun things you are in the right place.  I’m a busy working wife with adult children (no grandchildren…yet!) and I have a lot of free time on my hands.  Not that I am always motivated to do anything with that free time, but I try to motivate myself.  Maybe you can help me with that!  I have a passion to write and just want to get all these words that are going on in my head, out in the open for others to see (and maybe laugh at).

Here you will see a variety of things that I am passionate about.  First and foremost, I am passionate about God.  That doesn’t mean that I am always right with God.  I try to be, but I fail every day.  I fail when I complain, I fail when I gossip, and I fail when I am just not in the mood that I think that I should be.  The important thing is though, that I try.  And God gives me grace.  The end, period!  I’m so very thankful for everyone in my life that reminds me of the path that I am on and keeps me on the straight and narrow.  I am also so very thankful that I live in a country that I can be passionate about my faith without being persecuted.

One of my favorite past times, lately, is quilting.  I will show you some of my quilts that I have made and maybe we can make one together!  Wouldn’t that be fun?  Hey, if I can make a full size bed quilt without any sewing expertise (trust me on this one), so can you!  It took me a few years, but hey, it was worth it.  I sleep with it every night and it is something I’m very proud of.

Another fun thing I like to do is crochet.  Correction…. I LOVE to crochet!  I love yarn and fiber!  I will post some free patterns (of my own and of many talented crocheters as well) and we can crochet together!

Recently, I became an essential oiler!  I have to say that I was so very skeptical of essential oils and thought they were way too expensive for my pocketbook, but I became a believer.  I’ll share that story with you later.   I’ll be giving you some ideas of how to use them for some home remedies.

I like all things crafty, not just quilts and crocheting.  You’ll see what things I like to try.  I’m a pinterest junkie all the way! There is definitely an addiction going on there!  I go to craft shows all the time and never spend a dime because I say, “I can make that myself”.  The sad thing about that is I never really get around to making it and what would my house look like if I made everything I saw and liked?  There are some things though, that I have made and I will share them with you as well.

So, with that all being said, sit back, relax and follow along with me and we’ll do this thing called life together.  Let’s be radically devoted together!
