Spring Party Favors

Several readers have emailed me asking me what I used to make the party favors for my church’s women’s  event.  Here is my work table ready to assemble the little pots.  I like to set everything out and precut anything ahead of time so I can move quickly – assembly line like. I bought peat […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately

I’m still alive, just crazy busy.  Doesn’t it seem that life gets really busy as soon as spring arrives?  Last week I prepared for a WOW (Women of the Word) event at my church.  We had a great turnout on Saturday morning and spent a few hours enjoying fellowship and food (of course) and I was […]

Wrensday: What I’m Reading Right Now

Yup, it’s Thursday and I’m just now posting Wrensday (which should have been posted on Wednesday).  Yup, that’s how I’m rolling right now.  I always love to hear what people are reading.  You can learn a lot about a person by observing what they read.  You can also get a great lead on what your […]

Wrensday: Beauty After The Storm

Sunday afternoon was rainy and windy and even a 15 minute hail storm made it a bit noisy.  But the best part was what we saw afterward. . . All chickens, goats, and bees were accounted for and no harm was done.  The hail melted quickly because of the rain that came after it.  Yes, lots […]

Homemade Bathroom Cleaner

Yesterday’s Monday Motivation hopefully got you to tackle your bathroom this week.  I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive cleaning products that are not full of toxic chemicals to clean my bathroom.  I clean my bathrooms every few days and try to wipe up the sinks every day after we’ve finished getting ready for the […]
