So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. John 16:22 The enemy may try to steal your joy, but know, God is much stronger than the tactics and lies sent out by the enemy. Have heart, God…

Re-purposing second hand treasures.

A while ago I posted a dollar day do over challenge where you all had a chance to vote for what my next project would be. I can’t seem to find some of those items you voted on. I had them in a box and now I can’t find them. Everything is pretty much organized…

An Arizona Centennial tree

one of my favorite places to visit here in Arizona is Prescott. I especially love the old court house. Sometimes they have festivals, farmer’s markets, art shows and holiday events.

Christmas in July.

Here in America we do something called Christmas in July. Mostly it’s just another reason to shop indoors when everything is hot outside and there’s not a whole lot to do. It’s not like the real Christmas. Just a summer time event to get early Christmas décor made, shop for Winter décor and maybe even…
