Santa Please . . .

Santa Please . . . Yes I am thinking about Christmas
I had this really cool idea.  At least I think it is.

I have a Pinterest Board titled Santa Please . . .

Here's a few pins . .

CROSS MY HEART RING   There is lots of jewelry on my board
And things for the house . . .

I love dishes and horses. 
I love things for my kitchen . . .

pretty measuring spoons just make me happy.... don't know why, but they do! I found these really cool measuring spoons this morning. Kinda remind me of the fancy sterling ones.

If you look at my Pinterest boards you can learn a lot about me . .

There's My Home School Board . . .
Seasons with handprints
My Horses Board . . .

My Apartment DIY Board . . .

Flat logs

And of course My Sewing and Quilting Boards . . .

Then there's My Pink board.  Just because I like Pink
vintage pink velvet sofa
If you follow my boards or my blog you can learn a lot about me. 

Last night I was talking to my DIL (they live two states away)  she mentioned that the bubble bath I sent for our granddaughter in the Easter package she used on her dolls.  She can't use bubble bath in her tub. 

It's hard living so far away and not seeing kids and grand kids every day.

I've never seen their house.  They built a few years ago their dream home.  After the initial home photo's they haven't sent anymore.  My DIL is a photographer so she sends tons of family and kid portrait shots but nothing else. 

And so I got to thinking what if they made boards of things they like.  I have a 5 year old granddaughter and a 13 year old grandson. 

I can only imagine what they would put on a Pinterest board.  Actually I know what my grandson would he already has a few boards.  He posts funny jokes and photography. 

I learned last night my granddaughters prefers Rose Art crayons to Crayola!

In the words of Martha Stewart . . . Pinterest it's a Good Thing!

Do you have far away family?  Maybe suggesting they make a Pinterest Board would bring your family closer together. 

I would love to hear your comment.  Or suggestions on how to
bridge the gap when your family lives far apart. 

Happy Easter,

Five Minute Friday -- Glue

Glue . . .
At Lisa Jo's she prompts us to write for 5 min.  w/o editing, backtracking just plain thoughts that come to mind. 

Here goes . . .
When I think of glue today I think of new opportunities.  In January I received a huge blessing in that God directed me to a new job at a Christian school.  I currently teach 3 year olds. And I love it.  We use a lot of glue.  And a lot of paint. 

They use glue straight from the bottle.  They brush it on.  Sometimes glue is mixed with paint. 

Lots of opportunities in the classroom to explore.

And now I have a new opportunity.  I have been offered the PreK 4 class.

I am so excited.  I am so scared.  I am so unsure. So undecided.

So wondering if this is where God wants me. 

Or do I stay stuck like glue with those sweet little ones. 

It has always been my dream to teach.  I never thought I would get the opportunity.

God opened doors and I am blessed. 

So this fall whether it is with 4-5 year olds or 2-3 year olds
I am going to be 'stuck' like glue!

I welcome your comments and prayers.  If your a teacher please leave a comment so I can visit your blog! 

Happy Easter

Locked Out! Bloggers Beware!

My Blog . . .
I've been a stranger looking in . . .

I had to use . . .
Super Hero powers but I managed to get back.


Google isn't my friend.  Beware of passwords.
I was locked out and it took me weeks to get back in.  I haven't figured it out yet.  Why it happened. 
How I got back in.  But I did and that is all that matters. 

I need my blogging friends to help me carry the load.  All your posts, comments and inspirations make my day!
Come back and see me and we'll do a Happy
Dance together!

Hung Out To Dry or Die

Yep my brand of laundry detergent is 'hung out to die'

So a few weeks ago, on Feb 6th to be exact I bought this detergent.
It had been awhile since I've bought powder but there wasn't any
liquid on sale so I figured I would give it a try . . .

This particular box purchased at the Walmart neighborhood market just a few blocks away boasted 46 washings.
Since I was considering changing to powder to save I figured I would just check it out.  And guess what I found!  Well I got 28 washings.  Now I realize it is possible I missed a couple but 10. 
And, to make it worse I didn't always measure the scoop to the full mark.  

Did you notice this one is advertised at $6.99 each.  At Walmart
it was $4.99.  Boy am I glad I didn't pay $6.99
Our local 4 News has a segment called "Deal or Dude" where the test product suggested by viewers. 
Well in my scientific experiment this one was a dude. 
I know we're all trying to save money these
days so you might give it a try and check out just how many washings your getting from your detergent.
I am interested in knowing what kind you use.  How much do you spend?
BTW the next vacation post coming soon...Just taking a break to do laundry.

Vacation Log Day 3/Cabin Fever

We've had such a long winter it has certainly been easy to have
that feeling . . .
Being a native Texan snow isn't the norm.  We have to spend our
vacations in places like Colorado if we want to enjoy a little of the white stuff. 

Yep I have been havin' Cabin Fever.

 I bet I had you goin' thinking I was already bored on my vacation.

 Nope. No way.  Not in a million years.  But I do have Cabin Fever.

This kind . . .

 I've been in my sewing room . . .
 Making these cool Log Cabin blocks.  Do you see anything special
about them? 

These blocks are half browns and half mixed colors.  I am having the most fun piecing these.  I am on a mission to empty my scrap bin. 

These new blocks will be a complementing quilted throw that will go with the King Size Log Cabin that is waiting in storage for me
to quilt.  I posted about this one here. 

Since our move I haven't been able to find it.  So I have resorted to emptying that scrap bin. 

So, for me since I can't go here for my vacation . . .
I'll do the next best thing . . .


Now that's a vacation!

Hear It On Sunday . . .

I read this somewhere  Hear It On Sunday use it on Monday . . .
I don't remember if it was a blog link party or on facebook.
What a great way to think about the 'word' you hear.  Thinking about sharing it with someone. 

I heard this song this morning.  It was new to me. 

A beautiful song with an aswesome lyric.  Definitely worthy to share.

Pinterest Pic . . . Why Didn't I Think Of It

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  I can sit for hours looking at Pins.
I probably have too many boards.  How many do you have?

My favorite pin from the last few days was this . . .

I love this idea.  It was one of those 'Why Didn't I Think Of It'
"Ah Ha" moments.

I have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with my coat closet.  Back in the day when I had a house I always tried to keep our coat closet free of clutter and ready and available for when friends came over.    I have always hated fussing with hangers. 

This is the perfect alternative.  Love it!  

Joining Ann for Thriving on Thursday.

I tried to follow the pin to find out where it came from but I couldn't find out. 

So have you had any 'Ah Ha' moments because of Pinterest? 

Happy Valentines Day
