My Mom shared this with me in e-mail and I thought I would share it with my readers 🙂


I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?

What if we flipped through it several times a day?

What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?

What if we used it to receive messages from the text?

What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?

What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?

What if we used it when we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency

This is something to make you go….hmm…where is my Bible?

Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don’t have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.

Makes you stop and think ‘where are my priorities?’

And no dropped calls!

Mystery Mom

Yay! I’m the mystery mom of the day over at Mommy Bloggers Club! I am so glad my sister introduced me to their site! I look forward to connecting with other mom’s and getting lots of good advice! I also hope to be able to blog more and more in between working on designs and taking care of my daughter.

Well, I must get ready for my 6 week postpartum doctor’s appointment and maybe to swing by the local farm to pick up some yummy Marion Berries so I can make a cobbler or a pie!


Wow! Snapfish is having a great promotional deal right now! If you order 50 4×6 pictures right now, they’ll be 1 cent each! You have to hurry because this great deal will be over on July 12th! I took advantage and am getting 50 prints of our trip to the beach this fourth of July!

I had a good 4th of July weekend. It was my first trip to the pacific coast and Melody’s first trip to the beach!  The pacific coast is much different than the east coast. It’s much cooler, temperatures only in the 60’s and quite windy.. it’s great for kite flying if nothing else. I would’ve liked to stay longer but I was not exactly dressed for it and I didn’t want Melody to catch a chill or get an ear ache. It did rain a bit but we found refuge in cute little pirate themed pastry shop. We also took in the sites of a glass blowing place were you could create your own float or paper weight.  Shrimp pizza was called for at lunch and after a bit of souvenir  and outlet shopping, we headed home before the traffic got too crazy.

That’s my 4th of July in a nut shell!

Fruits of the Spirit

It was a blessing to have my daughter to sleep all morning! Why do you ask? Well, I was contacted for a job yesterday evening and I was pondering whether to do it and whether or not I would be able to finish it by the deadline! I prayed about it and slept on it and I was able to. It made me happy to able to do some substantial work for someone and it was fun 🙂

I think the design came out just nicely as it’s for a Children’s Sunday School Class that’s learning about the fruit of the spirt.

The Polka Dot Tot Spot

I was very much impressed by the Etsy Shop The Polka Dot Tot Spot of which my sister Kristinia eagerly shared with me! I was looking for different types of toys that I could purchase for my daughter of which I am sure she would love! I purchased a set of three chocolate lollipop red play blocks and matching ball. What’s so great about these products are they are different, fun, and made of cloth… that means it’s okay to toss them around in the house without worry of breaking something and they are super easy to clean too… just throw them in the washer! I am sure in the months to come my daughter will enjoy crawing around after her ball and nibbling on her blocks but for now being only 1 month old, she just enjoys staring at them in her crib. 🙂

If you are looking for something different, like me.. be sure to swing on by The Polka Dot Tot Spot as there are many fun products and patterns to chose from that you and your little one can enjoy for years to come!
