My Friday Finds . . .
A few of the things I discover each week that inspire me and make me want to get busy creating or doing things! I hope they inspire you to do the same!
Using Washi Tape to cover tabs. Found on Stacijulian Blog.
A sweet sewing set by Gentle Work. I love this blog. No instructions, just eye candy for the crafter and plenty of inspiration.
I love this sweet little book in a matchbox. (you know I love matchbox crafts.) From Club Scrap. A complete tutorial.

How to Compost. From Pretty Handy Girl.

From The Garden Glove. Unusual ideas for garden containers.
And that's my finds for this week. Hope you found something here that you can use!
I thought you might like to see the combined gift that my sister and I gave my mom for Mother's Day. I so seldom get to see my art framed and being used. It looks pretty nice here! We have had such a busy week. On Wednesday the Zone Leaders ended up being at ours for lunch. I did cabbage and cheese soup. rolls and homemade brownies, and then yesterday the Sister's called saying their Tea Appointment had fallen through, so they ended up here feasting on Meatloaf Pie, crunchy cheese potatoes, salad and leftover brownies and some speedy berry cake. Today we have the Swallows coming, the dog groomer and we are driving a family out to a camp. Whew! There is no rest for the wicked!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
Expect to have hope rekindled.
Expect yoru prayers to be
answered in wondrous ways.
The dry seasons in life
do not last.
The Spring rains will come again
