Beautiful vintage roses...how can you go wrong?


Seems doing something creative lately has been just about like pulling teeth!!!
WHY and WHY???
I really love making stuff!
I don't know. I can't even explain it.

I have so many amazing ideas rushing through my mind
but actually making them happen has been,
well,
just like I said...
like pulling teeth!

Well, sound the trumpets and start the parade because
I've FINALLY finished a little something!!!

This is another fabric journal slipcover.
It fits beautifully over your standard composition notebook.
Just fold both covers completely back and slip it on!!!

Fill it up with prayers, notes, thoughts and when it's full?
Just slip the fabric cover off and slip it onto a brand new notebook!

I tried something new on this one too.
Fabric rosettes!!!
And I love them!
I watched a few YouTube videos and
figured I could wing it from there.
The only thing I changed is that I did NOT use a glue gun.
I used my favorite glue ever, Fabri-Tac
which is like a cold glue gun glue.

My offering (in my shop now)








Feels good to finally make something and it always
make me wonder,
why did it take so long????


You can find my new journal slipcover in my Etsy shop if you're interested....


Thank you so very much for visiting my blog.
I love my blog friends and treasure you so!

Happy Thursday angels,
hugs and love,
Dawn

So very proud!!!




Our little Noah...who's not so little anymore (at 6'2" and now 16 yrs old)
was one of the hosts of his youth group's annual fund raiser!!!

They have a talent show featuring all of the youth group and
of course, Noah, being the youngest of five boys, is quite the ham and
so fits the part as the HOST with his best buddy Logan!!!


The talent show was featured for two nights, Friday and Saturday ~
I was able to go Saturday and it was just WONDERFUL!!!!

Here's our sweet youngest, Noah on the left...and Logan on the right:





He also performed in a skit....of course, you had to be there but it was funny as all get out!






Noah's on the left, Logan on the right ~ they really do perform so well together!








Did I mention that Noah is a HAM??
(ps. I made his little chevron bow tie!)



And a goober????







Our sweet, sweet boy and his best bud.

This youth group has been so very wonderful for Noah.
With all his big brothers being grown and out of the house,
he just loves doing stuff with his youth group!!

Thank you so much Barnzee and Terry....(his youth group leaders)
for all that you do for our precious children.
Please remember that all that you do for our babies
truly are jewels in your crown!!!

As for me?
Not much to report right now...
but sure hope to soon!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday my dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Wishing you a blessed Easter dear friends ~



The Son of God came to this earth.
He lived a perfect life....
and died for each and every one of us ~
to pay for our sins,
then He rose from the grave
just three days later so show us that
TRULY
He WAS the Son of God.

And if we will only believe that He did this for us all,
we will live in Heaven with Him for eternity!!!










I had to share this video with you as well....
This hymn is one of my very, very favorites and is so beautifully performed
by Vince Gill and Carrie Underwood:







As the mother of five sons,
I can't imagine the heart-wrenching sacrifice our Lord made
for each and every one of us
and weep even at thought of it.....
 
Celebrating HIS precious love for us all,
Dawn
