So I am alive and further more all wee-ish Kelleys are still alive as well.  Word.  This is good news 🙂  Our week has been maddening…and not with busyness…just with germs, but I feel like we’re on the upward swing.  Let me get to my rambling for today.

My Bible got another new look.  I’m probably just going to keep adding to it in some form or another.  Acrylic paint keeps things real.  Totally love the teal green dots and it was the easiest thing to do ever!!!!

Harper’s birthday is right around the corner and I just filled my Amazon cart with things like an ESV Journaling Bible, For Girls Like You: A Devotional for Tweens, Micron Assorted Colors Ink Pen Set, and Hollyn’s CD.  The fact that age 9 is practically here is bizarre and yet fantastic all at once.  She is totally my jam and I could not love who she is becoming any more.

Amon is a guys guy.  His top 3 favorite people currently in his life: Big Daddy (hands down), Josh Kelley and Dr. Eidson (his pediatrician).  He talks about them.  Asks me what I think they are doing at random points in our day.  Wonders if any of them have a silver tooth like he does (undeveloped 2 year molar).  And when he’s around them is quite obsessed.  During all doctor’s appointments he slowly creeps in on Dr. Eidson and then casually puts himself IN HIS LAP!!!!  It’s hilarious and a tad creepo, but what can I say…he’s freakin’ adorable.

Revelations is killin’ it.  I am thoroughly enjoying it and I thought for sure I would be completely lost and overwhelmed and stressed to the max and yet, I’m totally the opposite.  There’s a lot of really hard truths to hear, but they are so needed in my ugly heart.  And Francis Chan is literally holding my hand and walking me through every single scripture.  Best.Resource.Ever.

I took the big kids out solo to run a few errands the other day.  I think big kids are crazy great.  I just love them and their personalities and they are fun and they can buckle themselves and they don’t melt in stores and we have the best conversations and they make me laugh so hard.  Don’t get me wrong…everyone in our house still has their moments…including myself and Josh, but man, I sure am enjoying this stage these three are in right now.  Give me all the big kids of the world.

This week has been lacking in the creating department with all the craziness of life, but I’m hoping to bounce back fast.  Harper and I are going to be doing some collaborative canvases to try and help her raise some more Swaziland funds for her trip.  And here are some sweet pieces which headed out recently.  If you’d like to place an order just message me HERE.

I can’t even handle this weeks crazy sweet waiting little guy.  I mean, could he be any cuter!?!?!  No way. Please join me in praying and rallying behind this precious one and his forever family.

*Joshua is a sweet and quiet 4 year old boy. His caretaker reports that he loves to cuddle and play. Joshua was born with binocular corneal leucoma (whitening of corneas), which has caused him to lose sight in both of his eyes; however, because the reason for his leucoma is unknown, it is also unknown until he is further evaluated by doctors if his condition can be treated to some level. At one and a half, he could crawl, respond when others asked for him to share his toys, and look for sources of sound. He is very sensitive to sounds and knows how to locate where sounds are coming from. He is designated by the CCCWA as a special focus file. His file is now a shared file. A family at any stage of the process is eligible to review this file. A grant is available to the family pursuing Joshua’s adoption. Email china@awaa.org to learn more about Joshua.*

Our kids come up with some hilarious stuff to pass the time.  This was my most recent favorite game they created.  They gathered all our round fruits, blindfolded each other and then had to guess which was which.  I laughed so hard when I realized what was going down.

And we’ll end with a super safe new sport Amon invented.  We’ll call it Arrow Skateboard Skiing.  It’s a real thing.  Which I put an end to after Josh Kelley pointed out he was going to lose an eye with one bad fall.  Separate we’re only so-so parents, but together we can keep small humans alive.  Ha.

 Hope your week is moving right along.  Tomorrow is Friday and I am insanely pumped.  It’s going to be a good weekend…I can feel it.

Happy Thursday.

8 Things

1.  Monday we started 1/2 marathon training.  I’m super excited because both partners in crime who are joining me have never done a 1/2 before.  I am so excited for them and that I get to run the race with them.  Accomplishing things together makes me super happy.  And one of the things I totally love about a training schedule like this is coming home each morning and crossing out that day…it speaks to my organizational heart.

PS: that little black haired baby Josh Kelley is holding is HARPER!!!!  What the what time?!?!

2.  Speaking of Harper…she’s going to Africa this summer and could not be more excited.  When I told her she just smiled and came over and gave me the biggest, sweetest hug.  We want her to take ownership over the trip as well so she is responsible for helping raise her funds.  This is not a cheap trip, but one we feel is incredibly important for her to take.  This will be her second time to Africa, but first to Swaziland.  She’s been brainstorming fundraising ideas…so far she’s made her own stationary and has been writing support letters.  She wants to sell cookies and art too.  We have a plan to collaborate on some colorful pieces and maybe some of you will purchase and help send this girl across oceans.

3.  Saturday we held another Bible journaling class at our house.  It was the sweetest group and sweetest time…it always is.  After every lady leaves I always just sit for a moment and think how dang lucky I am to teach this class.  It is a highlight in my month.  March is going to be a wild month for us, so there will be no class in our house this month.  I will still be traveling to teach the class so if you would like for me to come to you, message me HERE and we’ll work out all the details.

4.  Locals…if you ever need some Timbali Crafts…maybe a last minute gift or a treat-yo-self purchase with a purpose, well I’m your girl.  Just message me and you can come shop your heart out.  Timbali is sold on a volunteer basis so I do not receive any compensation for sales, I simply love these women and their products and use them everyday, so it’s a no brainer to sell them and tell the world.

5.  This picture of Hudson cracks me up.  In the evening, if this kid so much as rests his head he is out…like a light.  He is quite the easy sleeper.

7.  Today I start Revelations.  I am a bit nervous and excited.  My friend Miranda hooked me up with some study videos so I’m hoping this will ease the pain of Revelations.  And after Revelations, here comes Genesis.  I’ve been reading the Bible for around 18 months…started in Matthew…just now starting Revelations.  I have not been fast by any means, but I sure do love reading the Bible now and I’d say that is success.

8.  And orders.  Today I’m working at home alone and it’s going to be quite glorious.  Another name pillow and some key fobs.  Raise the roof.  Here are two cute pillows that headed out bright and early this morning.  Shoot me a message HERE if you’d like to place an order.

Hope everyone’s having a decent week so far.  We’re half way thought it.

Happy Wednesday.

Oh Happy Day

Blogs feel like a dying breed these days.  Instagram and other forms of social media are eating all the blogs…at least, that’s the word on the inter webs street.  But I just can’t quit this space.  I love coming here and pecking away at these keys sharing all the randomness and mundane which flies around in my head.  Today’s post is a perfect reason for why I love to blog…because sometimes quirky, giddy good news just has to be shared…along with other random thoughts.

First, the reason I could not wait for the littles to go for their nap so I could log on…You guys, it’s practically my public service duty to share the Noonday Happy Day necklace is back.  My all time favorite necklace EVA!!!!!  It’s like the McRib being back, but infinitely times better.  Today was Noonday’s spring launch and when I saw it, I gasped.  Could my eyes be fooling me?!?!?!  No they weren’t.  She’s had some minor changes made, so minor I had to get mine out to compare with the computer picture.  And with those minor changes came a name change.  Head over asap and snag The Sunny Day Necklace now.  If you don’t already have an ambassador put in Ashley Mills…she’s your girl.

And let’s all breath this boho beauty of a bag in deep.  Heart emoji eyes forever.


For lunch time on Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays I let Amon eat wherever he wants…minus the bathroom…hello.  It’s like his special “Hey, you’re the biggest kid in the house today” treat.  He usually picks the floor, but sometimes he wants right up on the counter to chow down.

Speaking of lunch, oh the humanity, today I ran out of the insanely good spicy avocado dressing I told you about on Monday.  The jar is gone.  Like gone gone.  I scraped every last bit that was left out of the jar and onto my salad today with a small spatula…as to not leave a smidgen behind.  I’m going to make more…today…even with out the yogurt because I have zero.  I’ll report back because I know you won’t be able to sleep easy until I do.

Speaking of Amon.  Today while we were reading for nap I got all teary eyed.  He loves bears and has recently memorized Panda Bear, Panda Bear and now reads it to us.  It is hands down the cutest thing in all the land.  It could quite possibly make Josh Kelley cry and whoa, that’s an accomplishment.  Every time we listen to him say all those words from memory our hearts just soar.  We still remember all of his non-verbal days.  We still remember all those speech therapy appointments and all his hard work.  We do not take for granted some parents will never hear their little ones voices.  We are just crazy grateful for every little mispronounced, speech impediment word he speaks…every last one.  I need to video it and share…you’re day would surely be made.

I missed Waiting Wednesday yesterday so I’m coming in strong today.  This little guy is slaying me.  And he’s a heart warrior so of course I’m even more a mess.  He’s simply precious.  Please join me in praying for his forever family.

**Meet amazing little Josiah.  Josiah is an extroverted little boy who loves being held. He is very active and he loves playing with other children and he gets along well with them. His favorite game is Hide and Seek. Josiah has been living with a foster family since he turned one year old.  Josiah has Down Syndrome. His file also indicates a congenital heart defect (PFO). Josiah’s file is from one of our orphanage partnerships and is designated as Special Focus so a family at any stage of the adoption process is eligible to review his file. contact china@awaa.org to inquire about Josiah.**

Yesterday I listened to a book as I worked away.  The littles had school and I got down to business.  Key fobs and a 12×12 canvas.  I am taking orders right now, so if you’d like to place one just message me HERE.

Since I create for my job which gets super messy…often making it look like I was recently fingerprinted…I love for my Bible journaling time to be simple.  I use very simple supplies and it’s a lot of no fuss.  I always talk about this in my class because there are so many many amazing supplies out there, but our life feels too chaotic for me to venture into new supplies right now.  One day, maybe, but for right now it’s all about the simplicity for me.

I made Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls for dinner last night and let me tell you…whoa nelly.  Freakin’ delicious.  I laughed in the internet face of the lady who posted it and typed out words “comfort food” underneath it.  What?!?!?!  Cabbage?!?!?!  Comfort food?!?!?!  Whatevs.  And now I am eating my  words because it was so good I went out this morning and got more ground beed to make round numero dos.  Make it and don’t be all judgmental towards the cabbage and the picture of the recipe like I was.

I did tweak the amounts on the ingredient list since I was unsure if we would really like this:  1 lb ground beef, 1 TB olive oil, 1 cup frozen chopped onion (I like things easy), 1/2 tsp minced garlic from jar 🙂 1/3 Large-ish cabbage…because is there really such a thing as a small cabbage…chopped (I’m going to make 2 more batches with my leftover cabbage), 1 can diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, 1/4 cup water, 1 tsp black pepper and 1 tsp sea salt.  I cooked it as said and it was awesome.

And lastly, could creating stationary be any more fun.  I really don’t think so.  Some super sweet letters are about to be written on these by one super sweet girl.

Happy Thursday.


It’s raining today.  Everything is crazy dreary and sopping wet.  I hardly ever turn lights on in our house during the day because we have so many windows, but today the house is dark.  Come on sunshine I need you in my life.  I feel like I have been racing around hard lately…it always feels like so much to do, but lately I’m unsure of what all I’m actually accomplishing.  Everything seems and feels half done.

Today has been full on Swaziland trip prep.  Booking flights, confirming information, getting team members up to date on what is going on and what is due when and where…oy vey.  It makes me sweaty and I feel like my blood pressure is slightly elevated 🙂  Most of all I am insanely excited.  We have a group of 10 this year and you guys it’s all Jesus.  I remember driving down the road in the 5am slot when I thought this trip was just not going to happen…we didn’t have the numbers and I felt like I had publicized all I could.  I told Jesus I only wanted this trip to happen if He did.  That was really hard for me because I really wanted this trip to happen no matter what, but I laid it out there and I prayed it on repeat.  And here we are and He receives every bit of the praise.  Insanely grateful is an understatement.

Beans and books…it’s our Valentines Day tradition.  Year after year.  And the kids still love it.

I might have talked two friends into doing a 1/2 marathon with me.  I like goals and I really like goals with friends.  Especially when neither one of them have ever run one.  One friend is mulling it over.  Another friend who shall remain nameless, errr Marcie, said and I quote “What??? Are you just trying to ruin everyone’s lives?”  End quote.  She is going to love that I quoted her on this and she’s also going to love when she crosses that finish line while holding my hand.  I’m going to make her hold my hand because she hates holding my hand.  Everyone wants to be friends with me 🙂

Life changer alert:  I saw this dressing recipe on some random video and holy moly.  Crazy crazy good.  I adjusted it a bit because I have a hard time following directions via fast moving video, but really, you just can’t mess this up…I don’t think.  Throw all the following into a chopper or food processor or whatever mixing device you have:  1 avocado, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/2 lime squeezed, 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I actually used way less because I had like none to begin with.  Ha.) 2/3 cup water, 1 tsp salt, 1 tablespoon garlic powder and 1 tablespoon cumin.  Blend away.  I made this yesterday night and have already eaten it 3 times.  Whoa.

I packaged this sweet 8×10 custom order up today.  This was a hard one to let go of.  The color and the words…yes, He is still good.

And I fell pretty hard over these verses today:  Christ in us is no match!  He is truth…everything we need to know about ourselves and Him.

1 John 2:24-27   Stay with what you heard from the beginning, the original message.  Let it sink into your life.  If what you heard from the beginning lives deeply in you, you will live deeply in both Son and Father.  This is exactly what Christ promised: eternal life, real life!  I’ve written to warn you about those who are trying to deceive you.  But they’re no match for what is embedded deeply within you—Christ’s anointing, no less!  You don’t need any of their so-called teaching.  Christ’s anointing teaches you the truth on everything you need to know about yourself and him, uncontaminated by a single lie.  Live deeply in what you were taught.”

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start.

Happy Tuesday!

Random Wednesday

On running:  I have been a runner for years.  I always say it’s like free therapy.  I mean, if I could A) afford and B) find the time to do therapy every week I totally would.  The therapy I do have under my belt was crazy good and helpful, but alas…monies & time.  So there’s running.  I love the physical and mental push, but sometimes I hate myself and this was one of those time.  THIS HIIT workout is insane and you will be dripping buckets of sweat.  Buckets.  Bump the 5.0 speed to 6.5 each time and you’ll cover well over 5.5 miles in your 45 minutes.

On Memphis:  Last Friday I headed to Memphis with a car load of Timbali and a cherry limeade in hand to teach a Bible journaling class.  It’s been a while since I’ve been alone in a car for that long.  I did things like think 🙂 and jam to music.  Josh Kelley’s truck console is pretty much a music time warp…Everclear, old school Kings of Leon, The Darkness and so many more.

Sidenote:  Well first I clearly have two different sized eyes.  Hahahahahaha.  And second, I ended up in stand still traffic for forever and that’s when I discovered they had given me a diet cherry limeade VS a regular cherry limeade.  Oh the humanity!!!!!!!!!!!  Diet drinks are not my friends.  Ever!  End side note.

It was such a great night.  My cousin Rebecca hosted and my other cousin Amy came too.  I met the sweetest kindest ladies in all the land.  Everyone was just so nice.  They ate snacks and bought up Timbali and asked Bible journaling questions.  I can’t say enough how much I love talking about this subject so I love hearing what other people are thinking as well.

Top 2 favorite moments:

1)  Saturday morning I woke up early and walked into the kitchen.  Brian (Bec’s husband) was up.  He said Rebecca was still asleep.  I made a bee line for their bedroom and crawled right up in bed with her and then we just chatted.  This reminded me of my mom.  Anyway time talks were going on in her home we were either all snuggled up in her bed or sitting around her table.

2)  My Aunt Janie lives next door to Rebecca and we went over in the morning for breakfast.  Again, Mom flooded my heart and mind.  Aunt Janie fixed breakfast and we all gathered around her little table chatting and eating away.  I stayed a little longer than everyone else talking with Aunt Janie.  I even helped myself to her pantry for a bowl of cereal…or two 🙂  Aunts are like that.  You don’t even have to ask.  When I hugged her goodbye I creepily smelled her neck because she even smelled like mom.  Turns out she wears the same perfume.  We laughed.

And sadly I walked away with NOT ONE flippin’ picture.  Geez.

On brownies:  THIS is my go-to brownie recipe.  Solomon has an intense love affair with brownies and is always requesting brownies, but with added things…like chocolate chips, m&ms, chocolate sauce, ice cream, etc.  This year he went total homemade brownie ice-cream sandwich.  A true boy after my own heart.

On ice-cream sundae bags:  I love my Aunt Tootsie’s homemade chocolate sauce recipe.  Make it and then seriously eat it by the spoonfuls.

When you make it just get ready because there will be so much of it.  What I always do is divide it out into jars and then gift people with an ice-cream sundae bag.  You guys, this is so easy and so fun.  I love to share this sauce, but honestly, it’s just mean to give them a jar of chocolate sauce all by itself.  I’m not a monster.  Clearly this chocolate sauce needs friends.

 On Waiting Wednesday:  God’s word says His plan for us is perfect.  Praying over that perfect plan for this crazy sweet boy’s life today.  **Meet Shakur. Shakur is about 11 years old and is HIV positive. He lives in a rural orphanage in Uganda and does not currently have access to the medical care he needs to thrive. Despite a lowered immune system and bouts with pneumonia his spirit remains strong. He is an amazing and gentle boy who would be a blessing to any family. email erica.mho@gmail.com for more information.**

On Sins:  Sometimes I get incredibly jealous of people around me.  I envy the flexibility in their lives and the help they receive…how they are able to go and do all they go and do.  I play the comparison game big time which absolutely wipes out my joy.  Both of these unpleasant feelings stem from sin in my own life.  This year I have been praying very very fervently that God would use me as He sees fit…not how I see fit or what I deem important or valuable…but just as I am…5 kids, making ends meet, all that our life entails right now, in the madness & chaos, even despite myself…just as I am.  I want what He desires for me, not what He desires for someone else.  I want my everyday ins and outs, the monotonous, regular tasks at hand to bring Him glory.  I want my ordinary to still be extraordinary.  I’ve also been asking Him to change me.  I want to see and recognize and then combat all the ugliness in my heart.  I want to say my sins’ names out loud so I can recognize them for who they are.  I don’t want them to take root knowing good and well some of them already have.  I want God to do a major overhaul in and on my heart.  I want the junk, like pride and envy, to be ripped out…root and all.

Yesterday I finished up 1 Peter and 5:5 struck a deep chord.

ESV “Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

the Message “God has had it with the proud, but takes great delight in just plain people.”

I want to be just my plain self before Jesus.  I want to clothe myself with humility.  I want to offer myself up just as I am and see the value and worth His plans for my life really have…even when they don’t resemble what I had in mind.  I want to know His plans for me are absolutely enough and how being humble can bring about great change in my heart.

On snacks:  I adore crunchy things.  Like pretty much obsessed.  These chips from Kroger are ridiculously good.  I don’t even like sweet potatoes and I could easily eat this entire bag.  The whole thing.  I have no shame party people, no shame.  Crunchy sweet potato chips for life.

Happy Wednesday.


Listening:  To Julie & Julia.  I’ve never seen it and several people have mentioned loving it.  I saw Meg post about watching it the other day, so I checked it out at the library.  So far it’s adorable and Julie is a blogger…which I love.  And she’s adorable.  And it’s about food.

Eating:  Nothing.  It was taco night which leaves zero leftovers.  If I had cookies I’d eat them.  Or chocolate.  Or ice-cream.  #help  I really want to make these Sea Salt Chocolate Macarons.  I had some a while back and wowzers!!!

Drinking:  Water.  Always and forever.  I do have a plan to snag a cherry limeade on my drive to Memphis tomorrow.  It is Friday and I’ll be missing happy hour with the Kelley kids, so I’ll carry it on alone.

Wearing:  PJs.  But I am loving these tees Created For Care has in their store.  I bought the Burn Bright for myself and the Born To Shine for Harper.  The money goes to help put on Created For Care and send adoptive & foster moms on the weekend retreat.  A purchase with purpose for sure.

Feeling:  Excited, overwhelmed, emotional, sad and hopeful.  Can someone feel all those emotions all at once?!?!?  Ha.

Weather:  Cold.  I pretty much hate winter.  Bring on Spring.

Wanting:  A new tattoo.  I really want to get something for all my kids, but am coming up empty on ideas.  Think I might go with something super simple and maybe geometric.  Also kind of digging a simple cross, but who knows.

Needing:  A good nights sleep.  True story.  I’m trying to get to bed earlier these days, but turns out it’s kind of lost cause.  I try though.  I really do.

Thinking:  About reform.  And the past.  And the present.  And how can we work to change things.  Just Mercy does that to you.  It’s amazing and heartbreaking and earth rocking.  It settles into your heart and mind and just sticks around…like it should.

Enjoying:  Julie & Julia.  I’m over an hour into it now and it’s adorable, funny, completely charming and makes me hungry.  I might eat a spoonful of peanut butter.  If only I wasn’t out of chocolate chips to put on top.  That sounds like a great idea.  Alas I might settle for pistachios.

 Happy Thursday night!

Night Thoughts

**Today I found myself alone for the very first time in 2 weeks and my mind just swirled.  I kick my mornings off early with my friend Alissa almost every week day.  Some days we have to start extra early and this morning was one of them.  After our workout I still had some time at home before kiddos we’re waking up for school so I did my Bible journaling.  1 Peter has been so great.  My mind raises with all it says about suffering…I’m processing all of that slowly and cautiously.  It scares me to pray for suffering. But this morning I was caught by 1 Peter 3:4.  I loved the comparison of the ESV version and The Message.

“…but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” ESV

“Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in.” The Message

I want that kind of beauty and character.  I want the kind of beauty and character which God delights in.


**I’m heading to Memphis Friday afternoon for an evening Bible journaling class.  I am ridiculously excited.  A) I love talking about Bible journaling because it has rocked my world B) I get to meet new people which is hard for me & class makes it easier.  And C) 2 words: Car snacks!  I love good car snacks for road trips.  I’m a lost cause people.

**I’m “reading” Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.  I think every person should read it.  Every.Person.  I cried in Joanns today while grabbing some supplies and listening.  It made my stomach just churn the whole time and my blood pressure rise and my heart split and several times I wanted to bail.  It’s hard to listen to and it should be, but every person needs to read/hear this book.

(I checked the audio book out from the library.)

**I’ve been getting work done which is so nice.  Key fobs are out of control and I finally quit taking pictures of them.  Ha.  It felt great today to have a solid amount of time just creating.

**We are feeling the ups and downs of foster care lately.  Emotions are all over the place for just about everyone involved which is hard.  What’s crazy is the range of honest human emotions felt.  Love, compassion, empathy, anger, sadness, frustration, exhaustion, hope.  All over the place and it’s hard handling that range of emotions some days.

**Amon and I are having lots of him and me time this week while the bigs are in school and our littlest has longer visitations.  We’ve picked out new glasses for me & Solomon a birthday gift, grocery shopped, banking, post office…he’s the greatest errand running partner of all time.  I let him pick a treat the other day and he chose a large peppermint patty.  It was the cutest thing ever watching him eat it.

**And another day another tea.  Peach this time.

Josh Kelley and I are finishing up a documentary called Ride the Divide and then I’m off to bed.

Peace out Wednesday night!

Day No. 6

Snow day number 6.  I broke down and made cookies…two days in a row…and partook…because I’m not equipped to handle this many snow days with no sugar 🙂  We just finished some house wide reading time while the littles were napping.  It was quiet while everyone read and I read and Bible journaled…I’m feeling quite confident I can and will keep everyone alive for the remainder of the day.  It’s the little things right?!?!

We have played approximately 1,211 games.  Games, games and more games.  Board, card and the electronic variety.  We can’t stop.  Heavy in rotation is Speed, Yahtzee and Sorry.  Sorry is one of my favorites…I remember playing it over and over again when I was a kid.

Yesterday I decided our plates & bowls should most definitely be where our glasses & coffee cups are.  Obviously.  This is what too much time in our house does to my brain.  Josh Kelley was crazy enthused I decided to rearrange and purge kitchen cabinet contents.

More tea.  This time raspberry.  I don’t even know who I am anymore.  It’s quite delightful and makes me feel quite sophisticated.  And it’s hot.  Could tea make me smarter?!?!?  I think so.

I have gotten some work done and by some I mean a smidgen.  Ahhhhhhh.  I absolutely adore my kids, but my mind is also hard wired for creating.  When I create I feel so much myself.  And sometimes the quiet to hear myself think is crazy good for my head and heart.  Won’t you join me in prayer for our local school district and these ice covered roads.

 I did make up some extra key fobs while working on a large custom set.  They have not been clasped yet, so these can be personalized with your choice of text (10 words or less).  Shoot me a message HERE with the number (s) of the ones you would like to purchase.

**5, 7, 6, 9, 13, 18, 20 & 21 sold**

And we have our next Bible journaling class set for Saturday February 27th at our home from 1-4pm.  I’ll do an official post with all the details this week, but if you’d like to go ahead and grab a spot(s) you can message me HERE.  There are 10 spots available.

We are about to start our 15th movie and eat our 23rd bag of microwave popcorn in 6 days.  Send help and cookies.

Happy Monday!
