It's FRIDAY..... Thank goodness....

Hello everyone! I'm so glad it is Friday. This week at school seemed to take FOREVER. My sixth graders at school are growing up way to fast and have so many problems that they should not have. I'm ready to sleep in in the morning. I'm going to cook a pizza for supper. The kids will be happy.

Let me introduce you to Red Rose. (My little Mollie named her that.) I wanted to make a rag doll and so this is my first attempt at one. I had a friend who made one at Christmas, and she had asked me to paint the face. So that is what started me on wanting to make one. She really was quite easy. I looked for a pattern but did not find one that I liked. So I made my own. Her hair is a little wild! Her dress wasn't quite what I wanted. I took her to school, and my kids thought I should stick pins in her...NO, she is not a voodoo doll. Mollie likes her, and my son wants a boy now. If anyone has any ideas for a boy, let me know.

At our county stock show, 4-H always asks for items donated for a silent auction. I made two signs. Here is one of the ones that I made. I never did find out what it sold for.

Enjoy your weekend everyone and may God bless you,

Tag for Happy Homemaker Tag Along....

Okay... I didn't get my post done on the 10th ... please forgive me for being a few days late.

Thank you Elizabeth over at Bluebird Papercrafts for hosting such a fun tag along. All year I will be making 2 tags for each month. My theme for my tags will be birds and birdhouses... They are so whimsical to me.....I chose to go with the blue colors from my booklet of scrapbook paper. My sweet little blue bird sits on a limb of berries. Oh how I wish I could see a blue bird outside my window...

Everyone's tags that I have seen just look lovely....

Happy January everyone....

At my church, we had forty days of prayer. We ended on Sat. and today had our revival. I have never been to a revival. So I wasn't sure what to expect. But it was wonderful. For 2011, starting today, I'm letting God be in control of my life. I shall look to him for help in everything I do. So this sign that I painted would be great to go with my new outlook.
