Diaper Haven

Need I say more, was January a busy diaper cake month or what?  It's funny I was so glad that my little ones grew out of diapers and now I am back buying them, thankfully not for me!  I think since I have made so many of these I will start charging for these.  If you know of anyone that wants one the price starts at $50 for these bigger ones which have a box of size 3 diapers and at least 96 diapers.  And yes, the new parent can use all the diapers that are in the cake.  I will be making some smallers that will start at $30.

Diaper Cakes

This was my first diaper cake done a few years ago.

This is just a few diaper cakes that I have done in the past year. Thanks to my dear husband it doesn't take us long to get it done; he helps me roll the diapers. These cakes also come with lots of prayer. I love making these and each one is unique.

A Long Time

Yes, it's been over a year since I have been on here. Life happens. I am going to try to do better this year and keep up to date more often. Hopefully, I can get some pictures on here of some of the things I have been up to. I think that you will like some of my projects that I have completed. Until later, ta-ta for now.

"The Six Liter Club" by Dr. Harry Kraus

First let me start off by saying I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to post. We have had one thing after another to happen to our computer and then busy, busy, busy with the kids. What a summer!

Oh my goodness! Does this say anything about this book or what? This was a great read, especially if you are in the medical field and a Christian, you will love it! This book keeps you wondering about Dr. Camille Weller and her life. What truly made her want to become a surgeon? Will she really become one of the boys? Does she find her true love? What haunts her and keeps her awake at night? Does she find the answers to all of these or not? You will have to read it to see.

Dr. Kraus has done a great job with this book. His expertise and knowledge of the mission field is a great assest. He keeps you wondering what will happen next; these are the type of books that I just love. Thank you Dr. Kraus for covering the medical, mission, and the spiritual fields in this book. You have done a great job with all the gifts that God has given you.

"Becoming Lucy" by Martha Rogers

O.k. I am doing a blog tour on a wonderful book that I have read. This is my first time doing this so be patient with me.

The title of the book is "Becoming Lucy" by Martha Rogers. This is a book about Christianity, love, and the Old West all wrapped up in one. I love this book it keeps your interest from the very beginning. It's one of those books you don't want to put down because you want to see want is going to happen next. It is so vivid in detail that you feel like you are there witnessing everything for your self.

Thank you Ms. Rogers for putting out such a wonderful book and may God bless you for spreading his word and allowing him to work through you.

Well I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I know that we have. I want to start off this first blog of the new year by saying thank you to all of you who have been there for us this past year.

Many people would call what we went through a bad time, but we call it a learning time. God taught me so much during Michael's unemployment. One of the best things that He taught me was to be content with what you have and enjoy it. Before this I was never satisfied with what I had. I always wanted more and thought the more I had the happier I would be and the more people would like me. The truth is the more that I tried to obtain the more depressed and unhappy I became. When I could not obtain the things I wanted when I wanted them then I became more unhappy. It took Michael's being laid off to make me realize that it wasn't things that I needed but God and the love that He wants to share with me and then in turn give to others. When I started giving love to others, true love, I started getting true love back in abundance. I now know what being a true friend is all about and how to be one. I have also learned that God will put people in your path sometimes as a test to see how you will do. On this we just have to do the best we can and listen to what God would say to us during this time and do it. If we show unconditional love towards people and not things then we will get unconditional love back. Isn't that pretty cool? Things cannot give anything back. We eventually get tired of them and want more. Think about it, when you smile at someone don't they usually smile back. With love it's the same thing, you give it, you get it in return. This is more important than any thing can do for us and God can show us how to obtain it free of charge. Think of all the money that you can save. Now, I am not saying quit buying things. We all like our toys in life and each of us has the little kid inside of us that is so excited when we get something new that we can't wait to play with it. And I believe that God put that there. We just need to realize that things cannot and will not ever do for us what God can. He freely loves us no matter what. If we want to call ourselves Christian then shouldn't imitate this?

1Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Life Lessons

Hello everyone,
If there is anyone still reading, I apologize for not having posted in so long. I have been in somewhat of a funk, since Michael lost his job. But I know that God is good and He is our provider. Just let me let you in on what God has done for us during this time. We have had so many blessings that I can't even count them and they have shown up in various ways. We have had people to give us checks out of the clear blue, we have been able to pay all of our bills without being late and even continuing to pay extra on Michael's truck (Dave Ramsey's snowball), we have been blessed by friends who have carried us out to eat, friends who have paid for me to have special little girly things done, and most of all our family has really pulled together throughout this whole thing. Some of our family paid for us to go on vacation, some bought us groceries, and some paid for the kids to do things that otherwise they wouldn't have gotten to do. I thank God for all that He has done through all of this. When I thought there would be no way that we were going to pay our bills that month, God would show up and show out! For those who wonder about God let me tell you, He is the only reason we have made it through all of this. He is the one who we leaned on, cried out to, and most of all learned from. God has taught us so much about finances while going through this time in our lives. I thank Him everyday, now when I get up whether it is cloudy and rainy or the sun is shining. I have drawn closer to him and our marriage has been made stronger due to this. I no longer have the fear of saying no we can't do this or that because we don't have the money, I now relish the fact that we don't really need this or that. I have realized how little we can live off of. I love the relationship that I have with my husband and my heavenly father now because both have been made stronger. Our family has been made stronger due to this. God has not only provided but lots of times over provided. You know there is a saying that goes; It's not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain; well I am dancing through this all the way to the feet of my Father. Thank you God for all that you have taught me and are still teaching me through all of this. God, you are so wonderful, gracious, and loving. I pray that every person that reads this will have a new understanding of who God is and what He wants to do in their lives. I pray that they too will start dancing in the rain, it can be lots of fun.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Easter Day

My little monkeys on Easter Sunday. Morgan is wearing the Easter dress that I made for her, my first sewing project. Lots of prayer went into this dress.
