Craft Night

While Josh decided he wanted to paint his beloved filing cabinet, Ashley and I got busy crafting the night away.

We of course needed cookies and coffee to help us get the job done so we made those and got started having fun! We both feel really blessed when we just get to be creative in God's presence with all the beautiful colors and textures and fun things He has made. So needless to say, it was a GREAT night of just enjoying the Lord and each other....oh and Josh had a great time getting half in on the creativity while he liquid sanded his cabinet and painted it. When it is finished in all its beauty, I will have to put up a picture entitled, "Made by Josh". He will love that!

Well here are our crafts. I made fabric flowers galore and Ashley embroidered the most lovely onesie EVER!

Enjoy - we sure did!

Our First Mother's Day

We have had a good time in the past few years hosting Mother's Day Brunch. This year was the best ever because I kinda counted as a MOM! Here are some pictures of our table for brunch. Thanks to for the really great flower ideas. Planting them in a goblet was so fun and way more classy than a terra cotta pot if you ask me : )

Oh and just for the record, Ashley is coming in town to craft with me and help me stay distracted until our baby comes. So get ready - because over the next few days there will be PICTURES GALORE of our fun baby crafting adventures!

DIY Ottoman

The wire baskets have quickly become one of my favorite parts of the room. A old man practically threw them at me at his garage sale. I offered to pay him for them but he said they were worthless and I should just take them! Uhh GREAT! I love them. Josh spray painted them for me to match some frames we have for another wall. They are really cute storage and just a pretty part of the room.

I hope some other people are grilling out tonight. It is so beautiful here in Springfield - we are loving sitting on the porch and relaxing.
