Five Freebies Friday

Hi all! I pray that everyone has had a wonderful week. It has been great here. Baby A has let me sleep in until 8:30 most mornings. I was able to spend some time crafting, updating the church website, and playing with the children. My husband has been home almost every evening before 5 pm this week which means we were able to spend some time together also.

I had intended to post a new craft this week. I want to put the directions in PDF format so that I can get used to it. It is my hope to eventually sell some of my patterns on ETSY and that seems to be the preferred format. I wrote the post, but when I started putting the PDF together I got sidetracked and never got it completed. Perhaps I can work on it this weekend and get it up for everyone next week. It will be a freebie. Here is a sneak peak:
I named him "Honey Heart". At our house he tends to hide, holding notes for the love of my life to find before he goes to work in the mornings. So far Honey has deliverd two messag…

Answers from God

It still amazes me when God chooses to answer a prayer request. Last night at church one of the men shared one such answer with us. A woman at another church had been in pain for more than a year. She had no insurance and she couldn't afford to go to a doctor to see what was wrong. It finally got to be an unbearable pain so she was forced to get medical attention. An ovarian cyst was discovered and biopsied. It was determined to be cancerous. Where it had been left to grow and spread for so long the doctor told her there were only two outcomes a that time. First, she could not have the surgery and would not live very long, or second, she could have surgery and they would attempt to remove the cancer. Then she would undergo chemotherapy and would still probably not live out the year as they did not think they would be able to remove all of the cancer from her body as it was very advanced. She told them she had a third option still. She called her pastor who came and pray…

Wecipe Wednesday - Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

So, after trying to search and make sure that I had not already posted this recipe I realized what a pain it is. People have to look through the whole post to see if that is the recipe that they are looking for. While I really DO want you to read the posts, it does create a problem when you know which recipe you are looking for because you have seen it before and you are trying to find it. Therefore, I am posting the recipe in the title. Hopefully this will make searching a little easier for you.

I admit, I don't like oatmeal raisin cookies. Something about them just seems wrong to me. The texture doesn't work for me either. So it seems odd that these muffins are among my favorites. The recipe is from a Dannon yogurt lid. I was bored one day and decided I wanted something different and new. I had all of the ingredients on hand so I made them, and the rest is history. Without further ado, here is the recipe.

Monday Musings

It's Monday and I got to sleep in! Welcome summer! I love the beginning of summer break. The kids are still excited about having time off and have not yet started constantly repeating "I'm bored!". I get a chance to catch up on things because I feel revitalized with sleep.

My first projects are going to be the patterns I bought to make baby A some clothes. I bought material for them when I purchased the patterns and if I don't make them soon they won't fit her. To be honest, I actually have one pattern and material that I bought for H when she was little and never got around to making for her! Now it is going to be baby A's dress.
In addition I need to mud the half wall that my wonderful husband built to replace the wooden spindles that were all that separated baby A from falling from the living room into the entryway. (We have a mid-entry home). He builds, I finish. However I didn't think about how difficult it would be to mud with a baby in the hous…
