Freedom is a strong pull ~

'Tis an amazing thing - technology. Here we are today seeing history being made on live TV as Mubarak steps down in Egypt due to the pressure of the people.

God Almighty put a strong desire to be free in the hearts of all mankind.

It will be interesting to see what happens in that country in the coming months.

We must guard our precious freedoms in this country! We need to be in constant prayer, lest we end up, bit-by-bit, losing what made America free.

But, our sovereign God knows all and has His children in His hand - where ever they may be!

Have a good day and enjoy the freedoms you are blessed with!

Puritan Quote that I love ~ ~

The worth of Jesus perfumes our feeble prayers and wins their acceptance.

- Thomas Watson

A fun project!

"Quilted cards on a hanger" - a fun, new project can just take me away into an unexpected zone.

Do you sometimes sit down in your studio/office/dining room table and get lost in the moment - don't have a clue what's going to happen - and suddenly you have "birthed" a new category or product or hobby that makes you smile!

This greeting card on a tiny hanger is one of those fun and unexpected products that I'm having a great time creating.

Have a lovely, creative day!

Pray for Haiti

Christmas was wonderful. We all had a White Christmas! I was in Kansas, but my hometown (Dallas) had its first white Christmas since 1923! Wow! What a winter we are having!

As I sit in my comfy home, like you, Haiti comes to mind so often. Dear God, have mercy on those poor people during this terrible time. It's precious to know that so many around the world are praying for those caught in the earthquake and its aftermath.

"If your Lord call you to suffering, be not dismayed; there shall be a new allowance of the King for you when you come to it. One of the softest pillows Christ hath is laid under His witnesses' head, though often they must set down their bare feet among the thorns."
S. Rutherford

Have a lovely night's sleep, all!

Twelve Weeks of Christmas! Wreaths/Door Decor

Wreaths/Door Decor!

Week 8

This week we are to share a wreath or door decor.
This is the perfect time for the coolest Santa ever to make his blogland debut!
I found this Santa at a really wonderful shop in Wichita, KS, in the Christmas of 2007. They knew I was "in love" with him, but he was pretty expensive (OK, a lot expensive)! But, after Christmas, the shop owner gave me a sale price, and I snapped him up and brought him home to Texas. That year I left him in the den all year. In 2009 he moved into my studio but now is back in the den "presiding" over all the other Christmas tra-la-las.

His gorgeous raffia beard is four feet long!

I have no tutorial on creating him.
He may be one-of-a-kind, but you need to meet the coolest Santa I've ever seen!

Pink Saturday - Teapots!


When thinking about decorating for Christmas I remembered a box of teapots that I hadn't unpacked when we moved a few years ago. Hmmm...., why not make them become a new decoration this year. So, here is a pink teapot with a little bling added.

Look around and see what unexpected "containers" you may have that could become a new Christmas decoration this year! A few picks, a little greenery, and for no expense, a new look! I did this with several teapots (but only showed the pink here, of course).

For more pink fun, be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!
