Pink Saturday - The Miracle Party


Guideposts' Makeover Reveal Video! Be a Design Angel & Help Out -- 

Enter the GIVEAWAYS over at The Katillac Shack

Kelee says

Please stop by and see the premiere of this inspiring makeover project for Colette, a cancer patient. I will also be showing glorious "before & after" photos of many of the DIY projects in the makeover -- like the angel mural shown above -- in this little "sneak peek" of the room. I can hardly wait for you to see every transformed corner in the "healing room" we created.

So please go over to see the video and pictures and join in the party.

Kelee asked us to share an uplifting story or place.

In our world today things are pretty tense, it is hard to find a place that makes you forget about what is happening around us. 

For us, I think we have found that place.

We went up into the mountains this last weekend and it was like everything was right with the world.  All the stress we have been feeling melted away as we were enveloped by God's creation, the smell of the air, you could even taste the pine in your mouth as you took a deep breath.  The sky was so amazing.  

Isn't it beautiful,  it was hard to come back down to the valley.

These mountains are unspoiled, no paved roads or resorts, no shops, only nature.

A few years ago in the fall I was able to go on a hike with several others, look at these colors.  We feel very blessed to live here at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming.   I tell you, for me this is where I get the clearest feeling of God's presents.

And in the winter

From a couple different years, trips up the mountain in early December to get our Christmas tree.   It is just like a Christmas card picture.  God is so amazing.  I love using His creation for color inspiration for my quilts, and you can see why.

Some wild flowers

Thank you for going up into the mountains with me, I hope you enjoyed it.

Pink Saturday - Pink Serving plate

Happy Pink Saturday
This week I wanted to share with you this dish I found several years ago.
I don't know what the pattern you?
All I know is I just loved it and so it came home with me.  LOL.
On Wednesday this week I posted some ramblings and I want
to thank each person who sent me encouragement.  
It really is good to know I am not alone,
though I already knew that, but it always helps
to talk to someone else about these things.

I will be sharing a quilt I am working on in upcoming posts
it is pink and aqua/turquoise.  It is going to be 
very pretty, though I can tell you the pattern is
testing my abilities, and right now it is
winning, I plan to turn that around.

I hope you have had a blessed week and that the one ahead
will bring you encouragement and many blessings.

Please stop over at Beverly's @ How Sweet the Sound
she is our wonderful hostess for Pink Saturday.

Ok, I just need to talk to someone.  I have been struggling with some things, nothing major, just things, perhaps silly things.   I find if I talk about things I can ususally find an answer, or someone can help me with suggestions.

One of the things I struggle with is writing my blogs.  I get these ideas and sit down to write and my mind goes blank, and then I get this feeling of dread.  I am not sure what it is. So, I end up just getting something written.  I want to write well, to let my personality come through, so I am trying to write this post, like I am talking to you or IMing you.  I don't have any problem writing an IM message, or visiting face to face or on the phone, but when I am writing my blog I freeze up.  I don't know if it is some kind of expectation I am putting on myself unknowingly.    Anyway, that is one of the things I am struggling with, minor I know, but none the less, something I need to improve.

The other thing I have been struggling with is reopening my Etsy shop.  In the past I have tried marketing my soaps and lotions, there are so many people doing that and unless you have something unique, I find it to be a waste of my time and money (though I do have lovely soaps to use myself).  So I have been giving this some thought and praying for guidance from the Lord.   Now I realize with all that is happening in this country and the world these days, it is not of that great of importance.  God does tell us though, in His word, that everything that concerns us concerns Him.  So anyway, the other day (well a couple weeks ago, really)   I was showing my DH something I am re-purposing and he said....Rustic-chic, that is Rustic-chic (very casual observation type of voice) needless to say I was rather stunned that he would even use this terminology or have a clue about chic anything (maybe he has been listening a little, lol), but he is right and I have been thinking about it every since.  So now I am on a new path, is it the right path, I don't know, but it is going to be interesting fun to find out.  With some ideas in my tiny brain, I will be reopening my Etsy and perhaps joining Make Mine Pink Boutiques and if no one else likes Rustic-chic, I guess I will have alot of fun things to decorate my Tin Shack.

Thank you so much for letting me vent.  Please if you have suggestions on either of these leave a message.  I think I am in transition here and I am getting kinda excited about the prospect of just making things I like and if they sell, cool, instead of trying to find something that will sell, it doesn't work, because no matter how cool I think it is....................well you know.   

Hugs and may God Bless you richly.
