Freebie Friday.....................

CEREAL BOX ... MAGAZINE HOLDER

Okay kids...............here we go.........
This really fun way to recycle...........

Supplies are:
Cereal box... or any box you want to use for a book/magazine holder
Scissors
Ruler
Pen

Turn box on its side... messure up 5 inches......mark with pen....


Due to wanting to keep the 'box top' on this particular box.. I created my slant under it.

Draw your line from the side mark to the top at an angle like this.............. dont forget to mark both sides.


Time for cutting................cut all along the markings to create your holder.

And see............... saved that 'box top' :)


Tah Dah...................... holds magazines Great!

Now... at this point... you can leave the cereal box as is.... or cover it with wrapping paper... scrapbook paper.... or contact paper.

For kids rooms.... it might be fun to just leave the cereal boxes as is.......... :) Imagine a shelf full of fun cereal box magazine holders. <3




Thanks for stoppin' in..........

have a fantastic Friday... and a wonderful weekend!

God Bless

Quick Show & Share...............


Wanted to take a minute and post this really pretty scarf I made (if I do say so myself) for a lady that ordered an extra long scarf for her friend.
She picked the color and pattern from other scarves of mine she has seen and this is what it came out to be!

Make a Difference Monday...............

Imagine if one million people committed to making a difference in someone’s life.

This past year, we honored those who have fallen and served our country on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
We have supported so very many who have been caught in the destruction of the weather... with tornado's.... tsunamis... etc.
We have helped several rebuild after fires and flooding.

And we have donated to so many different causes and needs!
Thank you to our communities for each doing their part for our country!!!

What can you do today to make a Difference? Give a hug... buy a cup of coffee... splurge for lunch... lend an ear.................

`°º·¤.¸¯`°º·¤.¸¯`°º·¤.¸ ♥ ¸.¤·º°´¯ ¸.¤·º°´¯ ¸.¤·º°

Luke 12:22-34

Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.


God Bless

Cookies for Ken was created to help Ken Carlton fund his cancer treatment. Over Christmas, cookie donations soared past $4000!

Now, does FB have the power to reach 10,000 people who would donate $10 each for Ken's Cancer treatment?


Thank you

Awesome God..............


When He rolls up His sleeves
He ain't just putting on the ritz
(Our God is an awesome God)
There's thunder in His footsteps
And lightning in His fists
(Our God is an awesome God)
And the Lord wasn't joking when He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He she'd His blood
His return is very close and so you better be believing that
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
And when the sky was starless
In the void of the night
(Our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness
And created the light
(Our God is an awesome God)
Judgement and wrath He poured out on Sodom
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God (Our God is an awesome God)
He reigns from heaven above (He reigns from heaven above)
With wisdom, power, and love (With wisdom, power, and love)
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God

New Year.............No Fear................

“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7

~~~~~~
Healthy fear warns us of danger and prepares us to react appropriately. However, the type of fear referred to in this verse is an unhealthy fear. It gets in the way of what our heavenly Father has already given us: His power, His love and His self-control.

Unhealthy fear overwhelms us with doubt and insecurity; it drains our spiritual life and physical strength. It steals God’s peace from our hearts, and robs us of joy in our daily lives. It causes us to become stagnant; unable to move ahead with the things God has planned for us. It’s important to remember that unhealthy, paralyzing, controlling fear is not from God. It is one weapon our enemy Satan uses to interrupt, discourage and destroy our relationship with our heavenly Father.

Are you struggling with unhealthy fear? In 1 Samuel 17:32, “David said to Saul, ‘Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him’”.

David could have cowered in the corner with an unhealthy, paralyzing fear at the thought of facing such insurmountable odds. Yet his confidence in God was so strong he actually volunteered to face the giant Philistine.

David saw his giant problem from God’s perspective and knew he already possessed everything necessary to face his enemy head on (literally!). This confidence allowed him to rest in God’s power and inexhaustible strength in order to defeat his enemy. Because David’s reliance was not on himself, but on the One who supplies everything needed, the giant was defeated.

As we follow David’s example and look at our giant problems from God’s perspective, we have the same assurance that God’s very presence will sustain us as we use the tools He has already provided.

In the past, I battled unhealthy fear; I allowed it to interrupt my relationship with God and others. It stole peace from my heart and joy from my daily life. I now lean on the truths in Psalm 91:14-15, “‘Because he loves me,’ says the LORD, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation’”. These verses have taught me the value of replacing fear with hope.

Are you living with unhealthy fear? Are you ready to replace it with the courageous and confident hope that’s found in trusting God alone? By placing our hope in God and not in our circumstances, we’re able to alleviate unhealthy fear. With God, we can face any giant in our path with confidence.

Dear Lord, I praise You as my deliverer, my refuge and shield. When unhealthy fear arises, remind me of Your ever-present help that hides me in the shadow of Your mighty wings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


God Bless
