Tonight I’m finally gonna get to decorating a little bit for the House of Prayer. I love the wreaths I made.. and the little tree I came up with!! Hope that everyone likes it all! I have some garland that I’m going to also use there… just gonna go with the flow on that… so no pictures of that. Just these:
I was given a lot of things to help me to decorate for Christmas… so I decided to make a wreath with just some of the things I was given. I sat in my floor thinking… I’m just gonne be fun and tacky… Just gonna sit here and put things in this wreath and go with it… So I DID! and yes.. I love it! My favortie part about this wreath are the branches. But most of all… it’s full of fun! I just had to keep it how it was. So I did… 🙂
My sister came to me and asked me to make a wreath for her mother in law; and of course it’s a Coca Cola wreath!! We thought it would be hard to find Coca Cola things… but it wasn’t. We stopped at Hobby Lobby and found a few ornaments. Then one night as I was out to eat at Cracker Barrell we found some others. I then thought it would be great to get a Coca Cola sign to go in the middle of the wreath- but where oh where would we find one of those!!?? I had thought about maybe looking online- and then we remembered the little Coca Cola Pharmacy in town. For the 27 years that I’ve lived in this town- I have never been to this little store until a few weeks ago where we found the sign. I thought it was great!
I’ve heard it said by many and even my own brain- that this week has been the longest, most boring week ever! Really… Thank God we finally made it to Friday!
This past week has also been a kinda hard week as well. Last Friday I was diagnosed with IC (Interstitial Cystitis) a disease of the bladder- they call it. I have to pretty much change my whole diet. I can’t have a lot of my favorite foods much anymore. And everything that I thought was helping my bladder, was actually making it worse! So yea. It’s been a hard week for me. But God is good! He will help me out. Most definately… I’m trusting Him.
In the midst of it all, I had a creative brain fart. I just couldn’t be me. I couldn’t sit down and put a color with a color, a leaf with a stick, or even a pen with a paper. I’ve just been goin fishin… sitting here not knowing what to do and waiting for the next bait to catch. So finally, after pulling myself together, I got in my craft closet and put together these great little Christmas Cards… I love em!
