Boo-tiful DIY

Fretting about a costume for your little witch? I have something you can whip up in less than an hour! 


Make a tutu and pair it with cat ears or an eye mask or a witch hat for the cutest little DIY costume on the block! It’s adorable and easy, and if you’re a scrap-a-holic like me, you might already have everything you need (fabric strips & elastic. Done and done.)

Love, NOW

So saddened by the news coming out of Las Vegas. I’m praying for the victims, their families, for the people who were there and witnessed such horror, for the people watching the videos of this nonsensical violence that will be forever changed from it, for our country, for our WORLD. Love, Now. #prayforvegas

There is SO MUCH GOING ON right now, people. It’s maddening!

Pray. LOVE. Pray. LOVE. Pray some more, and LOVE with all your heart. The world needs us.

romans 8:38

I’m drawn to Romans 8:35 right now, my prayer warriors – read with me:

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”)  No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Let that sink in when you have fear in your heart, when you worry, when your faith fades.

I came across this today, and it rang true (I giggled, of course but it is 100% accurate). That’s why we call ourselves warriors. We are indeed going to battle.

Until next time (in which I promise to deliver something crafty -This mama is itching to get her craft on!) —

Peace and LOVE and Blessings,

#grateful

It’s World Gratitude Day!

A reminder to be grateful — to give thanks for all that is good, show appreciation and reflect positively on life.

While I consider the many things I am grateful for (such as my husband, my kids, my family & friends, coffee, belly laughs and uninterrupted nap times), there is one that tops them all.

Grateful for His love, grace and sacrifice. Even in the darkest times, I believe and trust that He is with us and his plans are good.

Crafty Door Sign

Knock Knock (Bark Bark, Wahhhhhh!!!) & a Free Printable

The Dog that Barks Loudly            

I have a dog. A big one. His barks are loud and thunderous even though he’s a total lover.

I also have kids that nap.

Are you seeing where I am going with this?

The doorbell sends the house into complete and total chaos – with dog barking and running, kids waking up and screaming (and then also running) and me trying to shush and stop the frantic dog from crashing into the front door (have I mentioned he’s blind?).

Knock Knock Sharpie

I needed a solution, I had a Sharpie, and this is what I came up with. Hopefully they take the hint, because the tape on the doorbell wasn’t working! 😀

Crafty Door Sign

I wrapped a Styrofoam frame with burlap (because anything harder knocks on the door when it’s windy – UGH!), looped a black S with twine and added the faux succulent for a splash of drought resistant color. I stuck the sign on the S with some Scotch mounting squares and hung my new creation on my door, with a little prayer for some sweet silence.

On the Door

I had a friend that said, ” I NEED THAT!” so I thought… hmm… maybe there might be more of us out there, caught in the no-doorbells-at-naptime phase, so I whipped up a free printable for those of you with dogs or babies or BOTH!

       

Blessings & Prayers for Sweet Silent Naptimes,

– D
