Last craft blog of 2012

It is almost 2013, I finished my goal of making at least one item a week. With 2013 I plan on crafting a lot but I will probably only post about it once a month or so.

The last three weeks have been busy for us. Christmas plans and then I ended up getting sick. I did finish up at least one craft a week. Here they are  -

What matters


My heart has been heavy ever since the recent school shooting. The moment the words splashed across the computer screen I was in shock, then came the anger and the tears. I just can not wrap my head around the desire to harm another person much less harm an innocent child. The night it happened I stayed up very late  praying for the families affected. My heart just broke thinking of the mother's with empty arms that night, the father who will never get to see that child grow, the grandparents robbed of a grandchild, the sibling missing their brother or sister, the children without a parent and every one else that was missing someone.
The next morning facebook, my email and forums were just flooded with information, pictures, prayers and  arguments over this.  I knew people would use it to push their political agenda,  push their ideals and others would just want to argue but I was floored at some of the comments. The rudeness, complete lack of tack and empathy. I just wanted to scream, to remind people that lives were lost and this was not the time nor the place for this. I just do not understand why people do this when tragedy strikes. I have heard every argument in the book about why people think it is okay but I strongly disagree with people when it comes to this, no matter what side of the argument they are one. This was a time for morning, for reflecting and for prayers. This was a time for sorrow, for remembrance and for the rest of humanity to band together in an effort to do something to help.
Twenty babies are no longer with their families, six adults were robbed of their lives.  These are the things we should be reflecting on. Hold your babies a little tighter, kiss your spouse a little more, love your family with everything you have. You are blessed to have them and we should never forget those things.

May they rest in peace and never be forgotten.

Thanksgiving

I am thankful for this holiday, I love the family get together, the big meal and a day to think of all things we have in our lives to be thankful for.
I am thankful that we have enough money to make a large meal. I am thankful we have such a beautiful family. I am thankful we have a place to gather.
I am thankful that I have talented parents that taught me to cook. I am thankful that they took the time to teach me all that they did.
I am thankful for every wonderful blessing I have in my life.

A month of thanks - Day 27

I am thankful for my two sweet nephews. I love them both dearly and I love being an aunt. One of them is close to me and I adore spending time with little Jonathan, he is such a sweet baby. The other is far and while I don't see Jack as often as I would like, I still love him and have enjoyed watching him grow up. It is hard to believe that Jack was so premature when you see him now.

Monday, November 19, 2012

A month of thanks - day 26

I am thankful for home schooling. I am thankful I get to spend the week doing school different then we normally do. Instead of work books and reading lessons our week is thanksgiving themed. The kids are loving it. I am thankful I am able to be flexible with their education and do things the way we feel is right, not the way a textbook deems correct.

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Week 25

I made some bows for a good friend of mine ( well for her daughter's ) -
Photobucket

Next week - More hair goodies to be made!

A month of thanks - day 23, 24 and 25

I have been sick the last couple of days so I am combining my posts into one.

I am thankful for modern medicine.
I am thankful for a mom that still takes care of me, even though I am an adult.
I am thankful for a husband that takes over everything and lets me rest.

Thursday, November 15, 2012

A month of thanks - day 22

I am thankful for family outings. Meal times are better with good conversation and living windows was much better having the family with. Alex and Destiny are always thrilled when Grandma and Grandpa come with us somewhere.
On that note, I am thankful that my kids have loving Grandparents on both sides. We are a lucky family.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

A month of thanks day 20 and 21

I was unable to post last night so I will combine today for both days.

I am thankful for my pets. I love my cats and my dog. They are really a part of our family and I don't know what I would do with them.

I am thankful for a warm house. The days are getting colder and we have a nice warm house to stay in.

Monday, November 12, 2012

A month of thanks - day 19

I am thankful for coffee. I know this sounds silly but there is something wonderful about going out and spending time with a friend or family member over a cup of coffee. I love going to the local coffee shop. After a stressful day it always relaxes me.

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Week 24

I made this set of batman themed tutus for a friend of mine. They turned out so cute! Destiny really wanted to keep them.

Hair bows and more

A month of thanks - day 18

With today being veterans day I think it is important to write about how thankful I am for all those who serve. I am thankful that they defend our country and our rights. I am thankful for not only them but for those who support and love them.
Chris and I know a lot of veterans and I want to tell you all how much respect and love I hold for each and every one of you.

A month of thanks - Day 17

I am thankful for my Grandma. She is an amazing women who I love with all my heart. My Grandma Gail made my childhood fun, she loved to tease and play. I still have a stuffed duck when gave me when I was a little girl. One afternoon I decided to leave the yard to play with the neighbors dog, my mother was frantic, called the police and everyone else before she could find me. Well a few days later my Grandma brought me a stuffed duck named Oscar, she told me she found him driving his car along the side of the road and asked me to take car of him, I was to make sure he never wandered off again. I still have Oscar and I love that stuffed duck.

A month of thanks -Day 16

I am thankful for the home school group we attend. It gives the kids a place to learn and play, I know they are safe and are with people I can trust. It gives them a good place to meet friends and socialize. All the women there are very nice and over all it is a great group.

Thursday, November 8, 2012

A month of thanks - day 15

I am thankful for mother daughter dates and time spent with my oldest daughter. Destiny is growing up fast and I am enjoying all the time with her I can get.

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

A month of thanks day 14

I am thankful for my sight. My older sister is blind, has been since birth and while she is an amazing person, growing up and seeing her struggles has made me very grateful for my sight. I am also thankful for all my other senses.

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

A month of thanks day 13

I am thankful for rainy days to spend snuggled on the couch watching television with my four beautiful kids. I am not a cold weather person, icky weather has a tendency to affect my mood but sometimes a rainy day inside is just what we need.

Monday, November 5, 2012

A month of thanks - day 12

I am thankful for my church. The kids love going to class, the sermons are always wonderful, the Pastor and his wife are great people and I love all the people there.

Sunday, November 4, 2012

A month of thanks - day 11

I am thankful for my education. My parents saw that the public school system was not working for me, took me out, home schooled me and I was able to graduate two years early. I had a lot more control over my classes, took classes I never could have in the public school and got a great education.
I am now home schooling my own kids and hoping to pass on the great education I received to them. I want them to love learning the way I did.

Saturday, November 3, 2012

A month of thanks - day 10

I am thankful for weekends. It was nice to spend a day with family. My mom watched my kids while Chris and I went and had lunch alone for the first time in way to long, then we spend the day with family and ended the day with watching a movie together. It is nice to have a day not interrupted by work schedules to just spend together.

Friday, November 2, 2012

Week 23

I made this button art to hang above my bed. Love it!

Photobucket

Next week  is custom tutus.

A month of thanks - day nine

I am thankful for my friends. I am blessed with a wide variety of friends. Some of them are close to me, some of them are not but they are all equally important to me and make my life better in their own special way.

Thursday, November 1, 2012

A month of thanks - day eight

I am thankful for my family. I have already wrote about my husband and my kids but I am now talking about everyone else.
My parents and my in laws are both great. They are wonderful grandparents, help Chris and I out a lot and just over all I am really thankful for them. My mom is like my best friend and my dad is an amazing father.
My sister and my brother are both very important to me along with all the in laws.
Chris and I have a large extended family and although both sides can be slightly dysfunctional we would not have it any other way. I love our families.

A month of thanks - day 7

I am thankful for all the people who put the effort into making trick or treating a fun time for my kids. It seems like less and less people have been doing it around here but those that did really made it great. We went two times, once here in town and once with my parents where they live and. My kids made out like bandits. I know times are tough for a lot of people and they do not have to do this so it makes me extra thankful.

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

A month of thanks - day six

I am thankful for my husband's job. He was unemployed for seven months last year and it was a tough time for us. Now he is in a place that he enjoys, we are getting back on track with everything and he is in a good company.

A month of thanks - Day five

I was not able to post this yesterday, for some reason my blog just did not want to load so I am posting two today.

I am thankful for how healthy my kids are. We get colds and other minor illnesses but over all they are really healthy. I see so many people talk about the chronic illnesses their children have and it makes me very thankful that my kids are healthy.

Sunday, October 28, 2012

A month of thanks day four

Today I am thankful for my home. It can be hard to think this way sometimes since we are dealing with a lot of issues in our house right now but at least I have a place to call my own. My kids have a place to play, we have a roof over our heads, we are cool in the summer, warm in the winter and we have a place to be together.
I spent most of the day laying around since I was not feeling very well and I just got to thinking about the fact that I tend to complain about the house instead of being thankful for the the fact that we have one. Yes, the house needs work, we do have lead paint in the house and it needs to be dealt with but over all we are blessed and I need to think of it that way more often.

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Week 22

A little late posting, I simply forgot. I did get Destiny's tutu done and she is thrilled with it. She wore it around the house all day when it was done and is really happy that between parties, events and trick or treating she gets to wear her costume four times.

Photobucket

Next week - I have hairbows, tutus and more to make so who knows what I will post!

A month of thanks - day 3

Today I am going to write about how thankful I am for my crafting abilities. I love making stuff for my kids and for others. Destiny ( my oldest daughter ) loves hair bows, tutus and all that girly stuff, I spent a lot on it before I just decided to start doing it myself. Now I have three girls, enough hair bows for double that and I still make more just because I can. Being crafty is something I enjoy, it relaxes me and gives me something fun to do.

30 day of thanks - Day 2

Now I know this is going to sound overly mushy and something any mom would be thankful for but today I am thankful for my kids. I always wanted to be a mother and I always wanted a house full of kids. I am lucky enough that I have both of those things. I have been a mom since I was nineteen, I love every moment of it. My kids may be naughty at times, they certainally test the boundaries of my patience level but I love them to pieces and my life would not be complete without them.

A month of thanks - Day 1

Today I want to write about how thankful I am for my husband. I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend, he is a great husband, a wonderful father and my soul mate. We have been together for eight years, married for seven. We have our disagreements but overall we have a really great marriage.   I can not stress enough how thankful I am for Chris.

Craft Challenge Week 14

I finally finished that batman tutu I have been working on. I can not wait to see how the little girl that it is for likes it. The pictures are of Kairi, I just cropped them because she was screaming. Kairi did not want to wear the tutu and was very mad I was taking a picture of it so these are not the greatest pictures but you get the main idea. ( The finished product did have straps sewn on but you get the idea here )

Photobucket

I also made a little gift for my husband. He turned 29 last weekend. I saw this idea on pinterest and thought it was perfect. I bought a glass jar at walmart, made a little sign that says Happy Birthday to our sweet but slightly nutty daddy, taped it on the jar and filled it with peanut m&ms.

Craft challenge week 7
