Fast Times

Can you believe that today is the last day of 
January?  Whew!  We are living in some seriously fast times,
aren't we?

So, as time flows quickly by like rushing rivers after days of rain, how
are we to respond?

For me, I am constantly asking God to keep me focused on the main things.  In my life, the main things are Him, family,
friends, and people in general. 

We all know that the saying is true. 
All we have is


I believe wholeheartedly that God's greatest desire for us in this life is to


He wanted us to do this so much that Jesus gave a new commandment...

A new commandment I give to you, that you love
one another; as I have loved you, that you also
love one another. 

By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have
love for one another.   
John 13:34-35

Some are harder to love than others, 
but we still need to love them.

I mean are WE all that easy to love?
{I know I can be a real challenge at times!}

Some of you have had people do terrible things to you; things that may have changed your life forever.  Please know that what I am saying is for life in general.  I do not want to minimize your pain and suffering, and God certainly doesn't either.  He knows all about it. He wants to give your heart peace, and help you through each day. ♥

As Valentine's day approaches, 
I hope you will feel challenged to show love to someone who isn't expecting it from you...  
Someone that maybe doesn't even deserve it.
God will smile when you do!

{Yeah, the One that created the heavens and earth, He will smile when you show love!!}
AMAZING, huh??!!}

Have a wonderful week, my friends,
and share your sparkle and smile
with everyone you meet!

Year Of Change!

Happy Saturday, Friends!

I am keeping busy with shop stuff, and am 
wondering what you are doing this weekend!!

Do Tell!!

It is a year of change for me!
This is the year of the great purge of stuff,
 tweaks to my shop, and committing to a
healthy life style for the rest of my days!

And I am so excited about it all!

But right now, I am just trying to fill up my shop with treasures ya'll will love!

Some pretty Valentine's tags
I have never made anything for Valentine's
before.  What do you think?

Love making little art collages and tags with
positive messages!  The little rhinestone
crosses are a personal fave!

Love this little vintage bottle, too!
Not sure if it is just a bottle or
a cruet, but it is just so cute!

Hope your weekend is fabulous!
Do share what you are up to, ok??

Be Happy!!
It is a choice, you know?

2016 How Exciting!!

Well, Happy, Happy, New Year Friends!!

I am not sure how we got here so quickly, but
I am certainly excited and looking at 2016 with joyful anticipation!!

Things here are good!  

I am a tad under
the weather, but otherwise just delighted
with this fresh, clean, slate God has
blessed me with!  Can't wait to see
what He and I do with it!!
Woohoo!  Let's go God!!


I have a new lens for my camera, and
I love it!  I am still a beginner photography
wise, and have so much yet to learn!

Took this photo of my latest pear creation
with it.  Love how it blurs automatically!

I am having fun adding to my line of fabric pears! You will see the rest next Monday!! 

The number on this pear is random, but it can be personalized to represent someone's age, birthday, special date, or lucky number!  How fun is that?

I will be opening my shop back up
next Monday, and can't wait for you to
see the new goodies!

Here is a pic of some of my Valentine
and spring supplies

Jars of eggs and hearts galore, that
are just waiting to be embellished!!

The aqua jar is actually a vintage
Avon jar that I just love.  If you love
it too, you might be able to find one
on Etsy.  I got mine at a yard sale quite
a while ago.

I hope your year is amazing, and full of
daily adventures!!

It's gonna be good!!!
Thank you for stopping by!!

Blessings and Hugs!!
