Happy Birthday to you!

So for some reason I feel as if today has sort of some significance to it..hmmm

OH ya! It's Courtney Wilson's 19th Birthday!

She is great and kind
and sometimes she's really sweet
when she speaks a funny phrase we all fall down laughing. 
God has her heart in his hand 
and His love brings her many blessings.
Today is the day we thank God that 
He created her 19 years ago. 
So here's to you Courtney,
It's your day!
I hope your dreams and wishes
come true in every way!

I'm so thankful that God has placed you in my life! I love you Courtney! Have a Happy Birthday!

Crafty, Crafty, Craftiness

I love 
& crafts 
(if you couldn't already tell)

I get into these crafty moods all the time and think ooo I could make this or oooo I could make that!
Lately, this has been happening on a regular occurrence. I'm not sure if it's the sunny weather or just watching too much TLC or perhaps the fact that I'm addicted to it's questionable;)

Anyway, here's what I've been crafting up!

I FINALLY made a yarn wreath! They are soo adorable and super easy to make. These colors are by far all my favorite, ah I just love everything about it!

Rose Necklace and Hair pin. To die for.  All you need is fabric, felt, ribbon & lil bit of hot glue. 
For the excellent tutorial please see the Beautiful Molly Kidd.

This chair has been in my family awhile and I decided to add a some paint and fabulous fabric and tada we now have a trendy directors chair. In the background, I made this lampshade this summer, I can't get over how cute it is!

Verses & Quotes are things I carry everywhere. They are encouraging & good reminders about what is at the center of my life and the purpose God has for me. So I painted a few. 

Ecc. 3:11 "Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end."

"It isn't how much love we give, it is how much love we put into giving" Mother Teresa

This painting was from a vision the Lord gave me. I wrote about it this last summer when I came back from my mission trip at Summit. God had shown me an image of myself with water pouring over me, visualizing how much God's love fills me and I use it to pour over others. It really hit home. 

God has given us all many talents, this is just one that I like to enjoy in my spare time. I would love to see how God uses his gifts in your life.
