IMG_8783-0.JPG

We had a fun day. Last Saturday we went to a birthday party in the morning at Boingo Bounce & then headed to the Northwest Arkansas Mall to meet the Easter Bunny! I wasn’t expecting such a great pic. I’ve had pictures taken like this before & they always turn out meh. They actually got several good pics & they let me choose which one I liked best. Isn’t it super cute? I’m excited to set it out with all my Easter decor this year. Here’s the flyer with all of the info: Does your family usually take pictures at Easter?

Best Buy for the Best Electronics

BB PINABLE

I got the chance to work with #CollectiveBias to promote Best Buy.  I was excited to apply for this shop because my husband LOVES Best Buy.  They have the best electronics.  He likes to go there just to look around.  It’s a great place to go to touch, feel & experience popular electronics.  If there is something you were thinking of buying, it’s nice to see it’s features in person.  It helps you feel more confident that you have the product that you want.  It’s also pretty fun to play around with all the gadgets! Best Buy also prides itself on being the ultimate showroom for home theater products. One of the things I played around with while I was there […]

Floor Pillow Tutorial

newly finished cushion pinable

Ever since I posted the floor pillow project (part one & two) I did for my church, I received lots of comments & emails asking questions & wanting a tutorial.  My original post linked back to a Mandy Made tutorial that I worked off of, but that blog is now private.  So, I decided to make another pillow & make my own tutorial.  The first time I made them, I made them 40 inches.  This time I was just working with what fabric I had on hand that would match my living room, so that ended up being 30 inches wide.  You could customize the size to whatever suits you really. You’ll need: 2 yards of fabric for the top […]

The Myth that Christians Should Be Happy About Everything

Christians HAPPY Myth

I think when many people read scriptures like, “Be joyful always.” in I Thessalonians 5:16,  they interpret that to mean that it’s sinful to be unhappy at any time.  Joyful & happy are not the same thing.  The reason I’m writing a post about this is I think it is a very common misconception.  I  think it causes people be inauthentic with others, with themselves & with the LORD. David was honest about his feelings to the LORD: “LORD, You are the God that saves me; day & night I cry out to you. May my prayer come before you; Turn your ear to my cry. I am overwhelmed with troubles & my life draws near to death. I am […]

Floor Pillows Completed!

Kids on them

Remember the floor pillows I was working on?  I finally finished them for our church’s infant room in our new location! They were super easy to make.  I also made the little cloud rugs.  How I made them: I used faux fur fabric & traced a cloud shape onto the back of it using a dinner plate as a stencil. Then, I used Fray Check on the edges to keep them from fraying.  I will say they were very furry: So, word to the wise, shake them out & vacuum these guys before you use them to rid them of all the excess fur.  I let the kids try them out before I brought them to the church: Umm, they loved […]

Huge Floor Pillows Part One

My church, The Grove Church, is moving & right now, we are preparing the new location.  I get to help a little bit with the children’s sunday school classrooms.  I love it because my children will use these rooms & I love thinking about all of the children in these rooms. I am currently working on giant floor pillows for the new Infant/Wobbler room.  It has been a fun project! I’m going for something like this: via Mandy Made So, I checked out Mandy Made‘s tutorial along with a few others to get some ideas.  Her website is now set to invited visitors only, so I can’t really link you to that post anymore.  Click HERE for MY tutorial. While searching […]

Easy Pillowcase Dress

The last couple of days I have been working on a pillowcase dress for our flea market booth.  Though, my daughter saw me working on it & excitedly asked me, “Is that for me?!”  Now, I’m debating if I should give it to her now & make another one for the booth. I followed the instructions that I found on Everyday Chaos.  On her blog, the pattern was for a nightgown, but I decided to make it a regular dress instead.  Here is a picture of the two she did: I made my dress a little different. I made my ruffle a little longer at the bottom, but it basically the same.  I plan to make this dress again.  It […]
