Done With Finishing

"I didn't get anything done." The words hang around me constantly. Nagging "guilt flies" that swarm about my face in irritating flashes of my cluttered scenery.

The dryer door open, clothes half unloaded.

The living room half dusted, fluff and yellow handled duster still lying on the credenza.

Menu Monday

We have been very much caught up in the little things around here. I like the little things so I'm not complaining. I feel like God is teaching me things I want to blog about, but I can't quite get here to write it all down. No matter. It will come.

My God is a Big Green God

I know that title sounds like something I may have overheard from my pre-schooler, but it isn't. It's something that's been on my mind lately. How God isn't intimidated by junk. He is the greenest God out there with His dedication to the three "R"s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. He even adds 4th and 5th "R"s: Restore and Redeem.

Tiny Tin Can Topiary Tutorial

Been making stuff again. This is actually one of the simplest things EVER, and could easily be a child's craft. It literally took five minutes to do the basics of this thing. It would take a child longer, and you'd have to do the glue gun part, but still...really simple.
