Set Apart Sunday

Romans 12:12

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.


Time to go GREEN!

Today is the day! In a few hours, we will be heading down to Hollywood to see the musical, WICKED! 

 I have seen it once before, and that was in December. I loved it so much, that the very next day I bought tickets for my Husband and I so that He could see it too! And, of course, so I could see it again! 

The cast is exceptional, but my favorite is Mamie Parris, who plays Elphaba, AKA The Wicked Witch Of The West. She.is. INCREDIBLE! The voice on her is like nothing I've EVER heard! 

 If you've never heard of this sweet musical, I suggest you visit their website and learn more about them! Chances are, they'll be in your neck of the woods at some point during their tour! They're wrapping up here on Sunday and heading out!

So, so excited! What a wonderful time we're gonna have! 


From Broke Down to Breathtaking!

So have you ever had an incident where you're holding your baby (child, teenager, WHATEVER), and they do THIS to your FAVORITE necklace?

Yeah, thought you moms out there could relate. I was so, so sad! Even though this necklace was $0.50 in the Fashion District of Downtown Los Angeles, I LOVED it! It was such a pretty color, and fit perfectly!

 So what can you do when this happens? Improvise!

Using these supplies, I was able to thread the ribbon into each bead, securing a knot between the beads. I attached a black bow to the necklace, and voila! A super chic, NEW necklace!

 I'm a happy mama again. Well, and I replaced the necklace with the very same one last week since we were down in LA for a field trip-HAH!

Valentine's Day Birdhouses

So apparently I'm on a Valentine's Day kick! I think I'm coming down from Christmas, and busying myself with  a new holiday's decor before I can be bummed about having to take down all my Christmas decorations!

 Anyway, here's a craft for under $5 and it's just as cute as can be!

Valentine's Day Birdhouses

Valentine's Day Wreath

Well hello there friends! How are you all? It's already 13 days into the New Year...WOW! 2012. Sounds so....futuristic. I've seen so many great ideas for Family Mission Statements and goals. Definitely gonna borrow some for this year!

 Anywhoo! Today I want to share with you a cute little wreath I put together for Valentine's Day. So here we go!

First, I cut out a heart from a cardboard box.

 I then wrapped it with strips of burlap, using my handy dandy GLUE GUN every couple of wraps.

Then I made little rosettes out of strips of burlap, and hot glues them to the heart.

 Put it on your front door with a strip of ribbon, and TADA! Cute, easy Valentine's Day Wreath!
