Book Clutch

Who here loves books? I know I sure do! 
One of my favorite scents (besides coffee) is the smell of books. New. Old. It doesn't really matter. There's just something about it that makes me smile. Maybe it's the smell that reminds you that inside those pages you'll find adventure, romance, or mystery. 
I will say this. I love to read but I when I buy a book from the thrift store, I don't always get it with that in mind. Sometimes it's because it's just plain pretty. In this case, I bought it with something else in mind. A book clutch.To the book lover/crafter. This one's for you.

Thanks to Caught on a Whim

 And this was my finished project.

Being At Sea

One hundred and fifty miles from the shore can seem like a world away. You look around and see nothing but ocean all around you. You hear the waves hit against the boat in such a way that soothes you all the way to the depths of your soul. Then you close you eyes and breathe in smell of salty air. There can be no doubt in your mind Who made all you are seeing. Just to be in the midst of it is such a privilege. Somehow it makes you feel closer to the Creator. Then you really begin to think. This isn't just your Creator. This is also your Savior. The One who made all that you see, is the very same One who asks to live inside of you, be a part of your life, and love you with everything He has. That is enough to take your breath away. It makes you stop and think, "Who am I, that the God of the universe desires me? He seeks after me and loves me? And all He is waiting for is me to say 'Yes'". In the world's eyes I am nothing special. We are nothing special. However in God's eyes, we are loved. We are cherished. We are His, and He is ours. Won't you say yes?

Isn't It Time???

I'm sure everyone has given up on me by now. I knew I had not updated in a while, but I didn't realize it had been since Easter! My mom always told me that the older I got the faster time goes by. I am learning that's true! I will have to say the time between Easter and now has not been too eventful, which sometimes can be a good thing. I have however been staying busy with a few projects...sewing projects to be exact.

 Here are a few projects I have been making. I started out with this book. It has a lot of neat projects, especially for beginners! You begin making something small, such as napkins and picnic place mats, and by the end of the book you are making skirts and shirts! I would recommend this to anyone beginning to sew!

This can be used for many other things than just a picnic mat. :)

These are two panels of curtains I made for the bathroom in salon that I work in. I love the fabric!

There are other things I have made, but those will have to be posted another day! Hopefully I won't wait so long next time to post.... :-)

Just a reminder for everyo
ne to keep hoping. Always.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are past away; behold, all things are become new.

Wow, sometimes I am amazed at my selfishness. I can so easily get caught up in things in my life that aren't going the way I believe they ought to be. Things that I know and believe God is working out, in His time. However, the even more amazing thing to me is that in the midst of my selfishness and complaining, God is standing right beside me. His love for me doesn't waver or falter. It's unending. It's everlasting. It's always faithful. "Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift."
2 Corinthians 9:15
