Prayer Requests

I have decided to keep the prayer requests I received yesterday confidential. Thank you to those who shared with me. I will be praying over "L" and "E". I hope that you both will have good news to come and praises to sing. May God bless you and your families.

How Can I Pray For You?

I feel a little ashamed to say that the thought of praying for any of my readers never cross my mind. I saw this post today over at Along For The Ride and felt compelled to ask the same question.

So, is there anything that you could use prayer for? Even an unspoken? Do you have a praise you would like to share? I would love to lift you up in prayer or rejoice with you before the Lord. You can email me your requests at

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
2 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Luke's Photoshoot

So about a couple of weeks ago my BFF came to town and brought her new fancy shmancy camera and lenses with her. So of course we had to go play. I really needed some new pics of Luke for our house, and since it wasn't raining it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

I love this one because it looks like he is praying ♥

A keeper for sure!

If our local Cultive has another art contest, I'm totally entering this photo!

Rock on!

Couldn't you just die of cuteness?! Obviously this is my favorite!

Luke and Aunt Kaitlyn

Trust me, my son does not just pose for a picture. There was so much bribing going on here! First I tried jingling my keys above the camera, and my son just looked at me like I was crazy. Then I tried doing funny things behind Kaitlyn. That didn't work. Then i told him I was going to do a magic trick and to look at my hands (I don't even think he knows what a magic trick is...). And finally I promised him frozen yogurt. Yup, that worked! Sheesh! I act like I'm a rookie at bribing!

I am so excited to get some of these prints up in my house! Man I love that boy!! Oh and thank you to my BFFFFF Kaitlyn for taking these awesome pictures of my family! I am totally going to abuse my friendship with her : )

I ♥ My State Tees

Man, it has been a while since I have posted anything. Life can get chaotic when you are trapped inside with a toddler due to lots of rain!

Well I recently found the easiest tutorial on how to paint clothing with stencils made from freezer paper! Another tutorial that I had read emphasized NOT to iron the freezer paper to the fabric. Pshh I don't know how they thought that was a good idea, because ironing the freezer paper works 100% better!

So once I had the stenciling down i decided to try to make this shirt that I saw over at Living With Punks. You can find the tutorial here.

Here is my version that I made for my niece who lives in Georgia.

And the fabric paint that I bought even had a shimmer to it too, which my 9 year old niece will LOVE!

Then I went ahead and made matching shirts for my son and my nephew.

I opted for a painted star, instead of a rhinestone heart, for the boys' shirts.

Well I hope you are inspired to go create something, and thanks for taking the time to stop by and check out my blog!
