I told you I'd be back and here I am!!! I wanted to come and do a short blog to keep my Word which is something that although my health isn't where I'd like it to be this has become a big thing for me. Even on my worst day I want to be able to try my best to keep my word. My Dad always told us when we were growing up your Word is Your Bond!! In other words there maybe sometimes in your life that it maybe the only thing you have is your Word and it can make all the difference.
I did something big last week and stepped out on Faith and not to let the "cat out the bag just yet will hold on for a bit until the deal is done and then share it with you all. I will share this though, since 2013 when my health began to really fail me my attitude about my future really changed. I love being active and the thought of not being able to come and go as I please especially now is depressing to say the least; but if I wasn't a woman of Faith I would have thrown in the towel last summer when I began to realize that my surgery had not been a complete success. At 48 I'm asking myself what next and I tell you the opinions, suggestions and perceptions have been something else but I'm so glad that gave me three nuggets of encouragement. The first one was in early 2013 You don't have to validate yourself in anyone's eyes I will validate you in due season. The second one came a few days after I came home from my surgery March 2014 I want to heal you from the inside out. Lastly, You were Healed as you went. Now that last just came a few weeks ago and I told my Pastor I don't know where I'm going but I believe God.
Tomorrow will mark the last day of a project that God gave me back in April. It is (was) the #90DaysofUplifting project and each day I had to post to Social media mainly to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram something that would be encouraging and uplifting to someone. It wasn't until I was in for about 2 weeks that God let me know that this is for me also. You know what I'm coming to realize that God is always wanting what's best for us even when we have to go through something to get to it.
Well this is all for now more to come. Until next time Be Blessed Be Encouraged and Be Creative

Let's jump right in and I will share my latest SWAP package that I recieved from Paisley Spirit on Ravelry from the Cowl Swap group I'm in. Needless to say I love everything and look forward to knitting/crocheting and getting lots of compliments from wearing my wonderful cowl she created for me.
The next thing I did was pull out my Cricut Expression and figure out how to make my own dividers with ornate tabs just because I could kinda thing. It took me a while because I use the Cricut Craftroom software and for some reason I could not get both shapes to weld into one shape for cutting. I had to walk away and then since I find everything on Socail Media I figure the fastest way after searching the site for help was to try Facebook and YES I hit the jackpot. I found the answer I needed and proceeded to make these babies.
That line is the problem I tried to fix.

Let's jump right in. Life well, since the last post I'm still not working trying to get my Etsy shop up and rolling making a few sales but the fees are killing my profit so there maybe a change in shops real soon. My health is about the same I am having some better days and feeling a little stronger. Thanks to my DD Carmen she gave me and her son a great gift a virus so for the past 10 days there's been a lot of coughing, sneezing, tea with honey, Nyquil, Theraflu, Ricola, Water and Orange juice and needless to say handwashing just because, Lysol sprayed throughout several times a day with windows opened to air out the house. LOL
Instagram well I finally did my first Instagram/FB giveaway in collaborations with The Ink Road and Forever Anchored 316 both with shops on Etsy.com were so awesome in helping my followers have an awesome experience
Erin Condren..........I have really blossomed since I first heard about this Planner. In my previous post and Video I talked about my first planner and then my discovery of ECLP which I'm absolutely in love with. Since this time 2 months ago WOW it's been that long I've become involved in a lot of FB groups specifically for Erin Condren Planners. Here are a few pics of my Planner
This first pic is a screen shot of how I would like to eventually master in my planner. What I love most is the neatness and Jen D. is the creator of this lovely layout and in my book the master of great layouts in planning.
Here's a Dashboard I made by laminating the left side and then punching 1/8" holes and spliting them so that they just snapped into the Planner. I use these to write Biblical Inspirations weekly.
Here's on of my weeks in August and although most ECLP users don't color coordinate with the specific month I do. I never plan with a theme in mind it's always with color, and stickers and I'm trying to get into using the same color ink as the month BUT so far that's not consistent.
FoldOut Dashboard I made and how it's helping organize my living space and my wallet. So stay tuned for that. Next up let's talk about something I've wanted to do since I first started this hobby.
Smashbooking is a form of scrapbooking but without serious forethought at least that's normally my approach. To me it's like making a collage of your life in stroy form. This group I joined on FB Smash & Share had a 30 Days of Lists Challenge for August and I thought why not and jumped right on in. Here are a few pages that I made

She Reads Truth........The Beatitudes Blessed are the Spiritual ZEROES when the Kingdom of the heavens come upon Them
This study is on the Sermon at the Mount and Jesus is teaching the mulititudes the Beatitudes. I see them as God's promises. How do you view them and how are they applicable to you today? Jesus was speaking of God's promises to His believers BUT at vs. 12 it let us know that we would go through rough times. This passage to me is like as a child and your parents tell you it's going to be ok because you're special and well loved. God loved us so that He was willing to make us (who are we that God would even consider this) some promises when our walk becomes challenging.
I walk away today feeling grateful in the knowledge of God's promises to me as a Believer
