this morning that little tug, became a big YANK!

WOW, it's been ages since I posted here! I've missed my little almost secret and unknown spot here in the big ole' blogging word!  After doing some thinking and feeling lately, I wrote this on Facebook today...

Thinking today: Am I really doing all that God has planned for me, am I really taking His love everywhere He wants it to go, am I letting His light shine in ALL and EVERY area of my life...and Am I fully using the blessings He gave me to FULLY glorify His name? I feel changes coming on!

I've really been feeling this tug...a tug to take a detour, to go in a new direction, take the path I hadn't planned on taking.  I guess I thought I had things figured out and that a card maker, stamper, little digi shop owner/artist was the one and only thing that God had planned for me. It has been a complete honor to receive emails from people (some I don't even know) requesting prayer or asking how does this Jesus thing work and how they can have, what a blessing! 

Today...this morning that little tug, became a big YANK! 

I can't ignore the fact that, while card making, stamping, scrapbooking is super fun & a great way to "met" new friends and touch is NOT the only part of me...I love more things, I have more to smile about, I have more to say, I have more to offer and share!  Sooooooo, from now on...I'm going to make it a priority to blog here daily and share My loves, My Blessings...MY HEART [♥]!

I sure hope you will stop in and visit from time to time!  

I'll see you in the morning, for fresh new start!!

Our Fall Photo Shoot

So, it is more difficult to photograph 6 kiddos than I expected...but we tried anyway!
We didn't really end up with anything AMAZING of all 6 babies, but we managed to get a 
few of Hannah that I am excited to say...she sort of likes!! YAY!!

I'll share one now...

and once I have more edited...I'll do another post!

I hope you are all having a fabulous start to fall!!

Wow, 2011 Already?!?!

Twenty Eleven has been quite a year and wow, has it flown by.  Yes, we have had some heartache and tears, but I like to say that there are no Rainbows without Rain!!  Storms help make us build us into the people God intended for us to be...when we lean on Him and Learn while in the storm, that is!!!  Laced in between those little bumps and storms we have experienced great and fun things!!

I know it's been way too long since I last posted, but with the start of a new school year (we homeschool...yay)...I wanted to post on a regular basis and stay up to date on the fun stuff we'll be doing!

Pioneer Day - Victory In Homeschooling

Our Homeschool Group - Victory In Homeschooling had a pioneer day!! Some of the adults and children dressed up. Each family brought some sort of Pioneer style (country, home cooking) dish to share. Mmmm, good good fun, fellowship and friends!!!
