Sometimes Pinterest doesn't give me one single idea or one project, instead, it sparks my creativity and inspires me to be creative! And that is exactly how this original masterpiece came to be:
I adore it. Mostly because I didn't steal the idea from someone else. Hubby wants me to sell it because he doesn't particularly care for it...but I don't know if I can part with it...
Here is a close up of the main piece that took me eternity:
In case you can't read that, the passage is Matthew 6:25-34 - one of my favorites! It talks about how if God takes care of the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, than how much more so will He take care of us? Stop worrying. That is a reminder I need every day! :) Check out the paper flower tutorial over at "Dozi".
The other two pieces took much less time to complete but I think they turned out pretty well:
The following three blogs provided me with most of my inspiration:
Creating While Waiting
Blue Cricket Design
Tatertots & Jello
Hoping my inspiration inspires you! Happy Crafting!
On a side-note, I officially made my own laundry detergent yesterday!
Really excited about this! Should last me longer than store-bought, be a lot healthier, it was cheaper, and it wasn't very difficult!
There were two blogs I referred to:
Sew Much Ado and Being Creative
I technically used the recipe from Sew Much Ado - it is a small recipe (perfect for someone that just wants to try the homemade thing) so I quadrupled it.
Being Creative includes Oxi-Clean in her recipe, but other than that, the recipe is basically the same...just bigger, much bigger. And since I didn't have a 5-gallon bucket laying around, I decided to use the recipe from Sew Much Ado. However, I did buy a big container of oxi-clean (I got off-brand) and I add a scoop of that to each wash as well. I simply combined the best of both worlds...or blogs...
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Let's make the world a better place, one washing machine at a time!
Learning to Be 31 follows me on my multi-faceted journey in learning to be a Proverbs 31 woman. Take your shoes off, take some time to look around, and make yourself at home - stay for a few minutes or all afternoon, but no matter what, enjoy yourself and learn something new! After all, adventure is out there!
Who am I?
I am a Child of the One True King and wife to a man I probably don't deserve on the good days. This past October we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world. A new exciting chapter has begun! I love sushi and spending time outside. And if you can get me to laugh really hard, I just might snort. ;)
Hey all! I am SO excited to be bringing you a giveaway hop! This is my first time participating in one so it is a big deal for me! ;) W...
If you haven't noticed, I was MIA last week. My grandad, or Pap-Pap passed away and I was only home a few days. Hoping to get back in ...
