DIY Scripture Sign Be Courageous: Chalking Series Project 12

DIY Scripture Sign Be Courageous: Chalking Series Project 12 Yesterday was my firstborn son’s birthday.  It’s hard to believe that it was 28 years ago that I became a parent for the first time.  I feel kind of sorry for him because he was a bit like a guinea pig teaching me everything I didn’t know about being a mom. He survived though and grew into a wonderful young man who now has a beautiful wife. His favorite Bible verse {Read More}

Repurposed Book Projects: 10 Ways To Give New Life To Old Books

Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art

Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art Before I share today’s project, I’ve got a question for you. What kinds of things do you collect? If money were no object, there are so many things I’d love to collect, like antique quilts.

I was a country girl back then, and I’m a country girl now, and I still love John Denver. 🙂 With Father’s Day coming up, {Read More}
