Now I can breathe

Hey everyone.  I can breathe a sigh of relief now, my Men's & Women's Day program is over.  It was beautiful.  Our guest preacher, Rev. Percy Coker, formerly of Grace Memorial Baptist Church, now at Dreamland Park Missionary Baptist Church, in Winston-Salem, NC, was awesome!  He had the house rocking!

It was a wonderful sermon, a great day, and we all had a fine time in the House of the Lord.  And, oh the colors.  I don't know if I told you the color scheme was lavendar and gray.  And those colors are pretty together.  The pulpit looked great with the flowers and everyone in the program wore a corsage or lapel pin and they rocked them.  Everyone liked the fans and bookmarks and treat boxes; all in all, everything turned out great.  Thank you, Lord!  I was worried at first, since I had to do it all myself.  But He had my back the entire time.  Now I can slink back into the obscure shadows.  LOL  I kinda like it there.  Nobody bothers me, 

I had a lot of fun making everything for the program, but it was a lot of work.  I mean a lot.  A whole lot.  Now I know better.  If I do this program next year, I'm going to make it easy on myself.  Not going to slack up on anything, but nothing as tedious as those boxes!  They were cute and made a lovely presentation, but half of them were in the trash can before the people left the church.  All the folding and cutting and gluing and labeling and ribbon curling, which took HOURS to get done, gone in a matter of seconds.  But they did look nice .  LOL  Here's a picture of one of them:

It's not showing up very well, but they boxes were pretty.  I made 100 of them.  That's the front. 

I don't think I showed you a picture of the flowers.  Anyway,

became this===>

And, I wound up getting three jobs from all this!  God is good.  I was not expecting anything like that.  I did all this because I love crafting.  But God, in His infinite wisdom, has my back.  Amen!

Til next time,

Stay Blessed and happy.

I'm baaaack!

What’s up, everybody?

I know I haven’t blogged in quite some time. Things come up and I think “oh I should post a blog,” then never get around to it. I’ve got quite a few things to blog about right now, so I may post several over the next few days.

First and foremost...drum roll please………I’m a grandma! My first grandchild made her entrance into the world on January 18, 2012. Guess what, y’all? That’s Jesse’s birthday!!! LOL You know how much I love me some Jesse L. Martin, and for my little Kennedy to be born on that day just made it all the more special. She is simply gorgeous, of course. She is now three, almost four months old and just as adorable as she can be.

I could gush about her all day. I’ve already crocheted her so many cute booties and hats and headbands, and I can’t wait until she’s big enough to fit the dress I crocheted for her! What can I say, babies are a crafters’ dream, because they give you so many things to create! I’ll get some pictures posted of the items I've made for her in a few days.

So much to do right now. I’m working on a program at church and I’m in the midst of creating bookmarks and fans and treat boxes. I wanted to make a praise and worship CD, but if I do all that this year, what will they have to look forward to next year??? LOL I’m also working with another member and we’re doing corsages for Mother’s Day. I’m just busy, busy, busy. But I love it! Here’s what I’ve done so far on the corsages.

Wow, I've got to run already! Just wanted to hop on here and say, "hi!" Oh, and watch "Scandal," tonight, 10:00 p.m. ABC. I'm loving that show right now. Til next time. Stay Blessed and happy.
