New blog decor....

Hello there! I know, I is not a project! Unfortunately I will not be able to upload photos any time soon! I am having laptop problems! I am hoping it has not crashed! That would be a disaster! Anyway thought I would pop on and let you all know what has been up the last few weeks. I have been moving my room art studio across the hall temporarily. Then I was going through closets and my bedroom.......will show a photo of my magazine hoarding when I am able ......was starting to feel like one of those people on that hoarders show! Lol it feels so much better having my bedroom back! As I get rooms completed I will post photos. Thanks for coming and visiting my little blog. Have a great back very soon!

One Little Word.......

Hello again! Have you all picked your "one little word" yet? Well.....I truly had to think on this one. I wanted to sit with it awhile. After much thought as to what this year is going to be like the word that kept coming to me was.......Adventure. After all we are new empty nesters.....that is an adventure in itself! But we are planning on remodeling the know.....changing up some rooms and using them slightly differently than when all the kids were home. Then there is my art.....I want to make that an adventure....learn new things and have fun with it! And husband, son, and I are going on a missions trip in June to Haiti! Now that is going to be quite an adventure! My son went to Haiti last summer and went to Mexico twice....all with the youth of our church. This will be my hubby and I's first time out of the country! So you see......adventure just had to be my word! Any way.......I am also taking a class with Ali Edwards.....One Little Word.....over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. This will keep my word in front of me and in my thoughts all year! You see......every month Ali has prompts and things to keep focused. So here is my January page......
Well now I cannot wait until the next prompt! That one comes February I do not have long to wait! There is still time to join in.....Just go on over to Big Picture Scrapbooking and sign up! Also I have another challenge for myself this year.....yes I have jumped on the Project Life bandwagon! More information on that later.....must catch up and get some photos printed.....have to send away for that.....waiting on doing a few weeks at a time! Well off to enjoy the rest of the evening! Night.....

Starbucks Sunday.........thought for the week

Hello there!! It has been very busy here....still trying to get my art room organized....well put back together. I still have my mountain of paper stash to get in there! Lol you never know just how much you actually have until you start going through it! Lol Wow......can anyone say hoarder? Lol well things are going to change here! Putting myself on a scrap fast!! Lol Any way I will post photos of my temporary room....because I will make another move into my actual space later this year! As empty nesters......we are changing things up a bit! Now onto my thought for the week! My scripture comes from 3 John 1:4. "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." I actuallly started thinking about this one while we were away spending time with our son this week. He had a wrestling we were there for the weekend! Always a great time.....just being able to catch up! Any was just so good to hear Grahm talk about what God is doing in his heart and how he is taking time to spend in the bible. It truly is wonderful and encouraging! Makes me try harder to make myself accountable too! God is good! Well that is it for today.....dinner is here! Be back later in the week with photos of my room! Have a great night....

Woops!! What a mess!!

Hello!! So sorry I have not made my Starbucks trip today! Was gone over the weekend and when I got back I have been in an organizing mood! Well I am changing rooms temporarily until we can get the other parts of the house done! We are making some changes since we are for the most part empty nesters! We are going to use some of the rooms a little differently than when we had the kids home. So as you can see.....I NEED to organize! Lol Well just wanted to pop in and let you all know what I have been up to....will post a pick of the finished temporary room sometime this week! Have a great day!

Starbucks Sunday.......thought of the day

Hello there..... Wanted to pop in for a bit and post a little thought for the day.....who knows maybe this will end up being a weekly occurance! We will just have to see. I was at Starbucks getting my usual Peppermint Mocha and all the while praying for family and such and a scripture came to mind that I really wanted to hold onto for today. Maybe it will take me into the week! The scripture comes from Proverbs 13:12 "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life." Anyway.......thought I would share what I will be pondering this week and what it means. I am just a simple lady learning more about my relationship with the Lord and where it is leading me. If you want to follow I would love that! In another post this week I will go into further detail about where I am headed with my little blog. In the mean time have a beautiful day!
