Gift Wrapping and Decorating!

Hello.......sweet ladies,
Today our Tressa is working for the first time at Open Doors Care Pregnancy Center. She is a little nervous...........so would you please pray for her? She was 8 years old when we all met for a year and a half...........to plan what the Lord wanted to do for girls that needed someone to come along side them when they needed help. We also wanted to minister to the parents young men. It has been open for 11 years now. Never would I have thought she would be used later on down the road. She is a young lady of purity and has made a huge commitment to the Lord to stay that way her whole life............her Momma was not that way........but I am now! God is such a wonderful Redeemer! I was an unwed young mother........but God can take the ugh! and do what HE does so well.........pulls us up out of the pit and sets us on HOLY GROUND! If we will let HIM! Thank you for praying for her.

This tree is so pretty......simple.......just had snow sprayed on it. Beautiful!!!!!!!!
Love old cupboards too!

The other day I was able to go and look in one of my most favorite shops in a town near us. The shop is called Scribbles & Scraps/ Good Old One. I love decorating in white and Connie the owner has such a way to bring beauty out of old. I took a few pictures to show you. If you are ever in Hutchinson Kansas........she will welcome you! You will enjoy.......it is so very lovely!

She has lots of snowmen..........I enjoy my snowman collection
after the CHRISTmas holidays!

The top left picture is a really big snowman made out of paper mache` I think. Connie also has a porch swing with a snow scene on it........hanging from the ceiling. Very cute!

Cute cute cute!!!!!! She has so many really neat cupboards. It is a must place to go if you
are in the area!

I took this old handled shoe box......emptied it and put all my gift wrapping needfuls in it.........it is keeping me all organized. Saves me time!

Well........ I need to finishing sewing up my daughter in loves CHRISTmas gifts. I always make something each year along with their other gift. I will show you after CHRISTmas what it was. It is so cute and very easy to make. I found the pattern on the internet. Also still decorating the house still.

CHRISTmas is almost upon us!!!!

Hugs and hope you are enjoying your day!
