Blessed, Blessed, Blessed ~    

There’s a saying… not sure where it came from but it goes like this… “too blessed to be stressed”.

I’m not rich, but I have a roof over my head, clothes to wear, and food to eat.
I am not alone, for I have a family who wraps me in their love.
I’m not popular, but I have friends who love me.
I’m only one among many but I am uniquely and lovingly designed by God’s hand.
I’m a sinner, but I know the love of Christ and  I am alive in Him.

Blessed, Blessed, Blessed.

My answer to yesterday’s question:  Love, forgiveness, faithfulness and family


Today’s workshop went well.  Diana Taylor came and showed us how to make ‘Ficklesticks’ and how to use them. 

The first thing I made was a daisy ring, then I made a matching pin.

Then after I got home this afternoon, I made another flower type pin.

It seems I was in a floral frame of mind today.

I’m thinking the pins will look cute as embellishments on tote bags and such.  I see using the ‘Ficklesticks’ as
embellishment for wall hangings too.  There are a lot ways to use ‘Fickelsticks’.


If you would like to find out more about ‘Ficklesticks’ go to www.stickballstudio.com , you can also find them on Facebook.  Just search Ficklesticks Fabric Jewels.

Busy Day indeed!
Later in the afternoon, we took off for Fort Smith.  My daughter needed a new pair of jeans.  She wears a size 1.   Do you know how hard it is to find a size 1 in the correct length?!   After three stores, we finally found her some jeans and believe it or not, we found them on sale for $12.00.  That in itself was amazing to me.  🙂
Also found a cute blouse for myself.  🙂
What’s the best thing you learned from your parents?
My GIVEAWAY starts tomorrow evening!
Watch for details.
Well, until next time…
God bless and keep you,
