Friday Finds . . .
A few of the things I find each week which strike my fancy and I hope that they strike yours also!(Can you believe that already this is the last one for February! The month has just flown by!)
From the Happier Homemaker . . . I have my doubts, but I am going to try it and see if it's true! I'll let you know!
From 36th Avenue. DIY Mini Gardens. These are so cute. What a great "Mother's Day", "Teacher Thankyou" at the end of the year, or "just because I care about you" gift these would be!
Let's make all of our mail pretty! From Postnome ru. It's in Russian but has an English trtanslator. This is a fabulous idea. If you are like me, there is very little "real post" that goes out to people these days, why not make what you do send a feast for the eyes from the get go!
DIY Beginners Sewing Kit. What a fabulous idea for a little girl! A complete tutorial from Smashed Peas and Carrots.
Free Printable Chalkboard Tags. From The Ellie Blog.
This birdhouse made from old books is really cute. Architecture, Art and Design, ten delightful diy birdhouse designs.
Pom Pom Ballerinas. So cute! I tried really hard to find a source but could not. I don't think they would be very hard to create with a bit of paint and some large pompoms, felt for the wings, some gold thread for the slipper laces, etc. Sweet!
Ruffled Pillow Case Dress. So adorable. From Simply Modern Mom.
Pretty Prudent. Printable Recipe Binder and Templates.
Now, this is a really great idea. Using an old book you might be thinking of throwing away as a Scrapbook project. For photographs, etc. From Happy Little Moments.
And that's my finds for this week. I haven't been feeling very well for a couple of days now. Somewhat of a tummy upset and I am getting a chest infection. Even though we were having the Missionary Elders for supper last night (I did a simple curry) I took myself upstairs to do some creating (artwise) of my own, which I hadn't done for a while.
(Sorry for all the copyright imagery, but someone on facebook has been stealing my art and erasing my copyright and making it their own, I thought this would be a lot harder to copy.) I am trying hard to be positive in the face of my impending colonoscopy etc. It really freaked me out when the Specialist said I think you have bowel cancer. And it's really freaking me out that it is taking them so long to come to a conclusive diagnosis . . . being able to escape into my art helps, so does keeping busy. I'm a bit of a hypocondriac anyways, so I am not sure if I am imagining things now or if I am really experiencing things. I know . . . what am I like! Putting it in the Lord's hands. If He knows each star by name and counts them, then I know He counts me too and knows me by name. Of course saying that I am doing that and actually doing that are two different things. It's always there niggling at the back of my mind . . .
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
My faith is to rest not in the outcome
I think God should work out for me,
My faith rests in who God is,
the quietness of my heart is the fruit
of an absolute confidence in God.
In The English Kitchen today . . . Bagel Hole Eggs. Deliciously different!
Have a fabulous Friday. Wherever you go, whatever you do, don't forget!
