April Showers Bring May Flowers

Anya is getting so big it's almost hard to believe. I'm enjoying her every moment, her every smile, and just waiting for her to bust out laughing. Unfortunately I'll be working for my very first Mother's Day, bummer. Luckily my job is only seasonal so I wont go bonkers working every weekend! I'm still doing Jazzercise and loosly doing Weight Watchers. I feel like I'm loosing weight and my pants are getting looser, but the scale hasn't changed. I'm hoping that i'm gaining muscle, b/c Jazzercise does to strength workouts along with cardio. I'm also going to try "Zumba" with my mother-in-law Monday. It's kind of like Jazzercise, but based more for latin dancing. They only charge 5 dollars a class, so I figured I could do it a couple times a month along with Jazzercise to switch it up. Who knows, I might even like it better. Well, I hope you all are having a lovely spring and happy sneezing!

My Faith

Ok so I have been reading Left Behind which has got me to do a lot of thinking. When I was younger my faith was very strong and I was very passionate about the gospel of Christ. I would share and talk with everyone about it. Now I don't do it, I can't even say I do it a little which I am ashamed of. I think about Him all the time and talk with him all the time and pray often, but I feel like I'm being selfish. I'm keeping this wonderful news and relationship to myself when I should be leading others to Christ. I know what I need to do, but I'm just not as bold as I used to be. All I know is that knowing Christ has given me a wonderful life though I have my weaknesses which make me stray, I always seem to come back to Him and he has blessed me way more than I deserve. I dont want to go to Heaven and have nothing to show for my life here on Earth. I want to make a difference in others lives and have them know and experience what I have. I pray that this post might get others thinking as well. I know I don't have a lot of followers but if I get one person thinking, that's all that matters. I hope and pray my daughter accepts Christ one day into her life and I pray my husband will be more sure of his faith. I couldnt imagine not having either one in Heaven with me.

God, I pray you will show me the way you want me to go and do your work. I pray you will give me the passion I once had as a young person. I want to lead more to you. Thank you again and again for all the blessings you have given me. I don't deserve any of them.

Daughters Vintage

Daughters Vintage

Daughters Vintage is a shop that hits close to home for me as i love to antique shop with my mother. This shop is run by a mother daughter duo that collects beautiful vintage items such as broaches or buttons and converts them into very modern jewelry. Their shop consists of some very unique and gorgeous rings, bracelets and hairpins. This is great for people like me who appreciate the look of vintage items but don't like to wear them as a broach or button, but can display them as a fabulous ring! This shop is truly unique and amazingly wonderful. Mother's day is coming soon and any item from Daughters Vintage would make a perfect gift for her. Encompassing the vintage look with a modern twist, these items are great for all ages! While you go shop for Mother's Day, I think I might have to shop for myself for once! visit Daughters Vintage today! Here are some fabulous items from their shop!

Guitar Picks in my Mother's Nest?

OK, so I know I need to retake these pictures, but all the equipment is now put up, but here is what is to come. I havent decided if I want to post anymore items and just keep everything for the craft show in September. I picked a few pieces I finished, I made over 100 earrings, ranging from floral designs, to designs I drew, halloween, and College Football. I also tried to make the mother's nests. I saw them and thought they were adorable. The red ring I made for myself. The red being anya's birthstone color. I think I'm going to make these for a craft show I want to do in November, but i also thought of posting them up being so close to mother's day. Tomorrow I am doing a blog on my featured seller! Check back tomorrow to see if it's you! I will also post a reminder to my GA_Street Team. Hope you all are doing well!

Easter Weekend

This was a good weekend for us! We spend Saturday with his parents on the boat and this was Anya's first boat ride! Poor child looks swallowed up by that life jacket! It's supposed to be her size but as you can see it doesn't fit exceptionally well. She slept most of the time, I think the motor of the boat lulled her to sleep. Sunday we spent the day at my parents house which was fun also. We ate some great food as always and had an eatser egg hunt which only lasted about 2 seconds. I would love to have Eatser at the lake like we used to, but no one seems to want to make the haul up there. It's only about a 45 minute drive. Maybe next year?
ETSIANS, I have a boat load of new stuff. I just finished making all my guitar pick earrings ready for the craft show in September. I'm trucking along now with my children's Icee packs. My next post will be all about them! I need to take some fab pictures first! Keep an eye out this THURSDAY I'm featuring a shop from my group, The Georgia Street Team! Can't wait!
