Merry Christmas

so this is the Advent series I made- probably 20 years ago- for our old Sanctuary. They matched so much better in there :) but when we moved to the new Sanctuary, they made the move too. I would love to see them be 'retired' but they seem to have a 'following' and I'm guessing that even if I made new ones to replace them, someone would say they missed the old ones :) I pray you all have a good Christmas, however that looks for you, and that 2016 is filled with more peace than strife. God Bless! 

it's about love

the final week of Advent is here! I hope you can see the little LED star in the's on a timer and comes on in time for evening services :)

temporary shower curtain :)

this is one of those 'why didn't I think of this sooner' ideas. I love the idea of decorating like a crazy woman at Christmas, but have never really found a shower curtain I was happy with- so this year, I found a cheapo flannel backed tablecloth ( the big oblong one) and made my own! It's not super duper strong, but that's ok for this shower as it doesn't get used much, now that all the kiddos are grown and gone :( I folded over the top to make a header, then just measured every 6 inches and poked a hole for the ring to slide through. I cut some off the bottom too, but it might have looked more official if I'd have hemmed it. And I suppose there's no reason it wouldn't work on a 'busier' shower- if you put a clear plastic liner behind it. that's my *happy* of the morning :)
