A new year always brings with it new year's resolutions. What better resolution than to spend more time with the person who means the most to you. No not a girlfriend, boyfriend, mom, dad, or spouse. Some one more important: God. Today I have some (more specifically four!) free printables for you to print and give to your child to help them learn to pay attention in church. Instead of doodling super heroes, dolls or who knows what else, these printables will encourage them to doodle about the message. And hopefully they will be learning important information along the way.
Decorating my home at Christmas time is one of the few times during the year that I go "all out" on the decorations. Sure other times you may find a decoration here or there but at Christmas even by bed gets decorated! This year I splurged and purchased a beautiful poinsettia bedspread complete with bed skirt and shams. To make the bed complete, I wanted decorative throw pillows to go on top. When I started pricing them I about fainted in the store! $40 for ONE twelve inch throw pillow. Mind you it was beautiful, it said "Merry Christmas" but not $40 beautiful! And I wanted more than one, more like three or four. $160 for pillows was NOT in my budget. It was not until I was walking through the dollar store that my eureka moment came. Want to see how to make beautiful throw pillows for less than $8 each? I thought so! ;) Read on.....

I cannot believe that it has been several months since I have blogged! I do miss it and think of posting from time to time but life has been a bit crazy here lately. Not in a bad way, but in a good way that I am going to share more about soon. New life changes, new hobbies, new accomplishments, new projects, yep I am going to have a lot to share in the days to come. But today I want to remind you of something that I needed to be reminded of but did not even realize it. Pull up a chair and lets have one of those "mama/ child" conversations.
