A favorite saying...

"When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting I'm clean livin'. I'm
whispering I was lost and now I'm found and forgiven. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need HIS strength to carry on. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need Jesus to clean my mess. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible but Jesus believes I am worth it. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches so I call upon His Name. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I'm not holier than thou. I'm just a simple sinner who
received Christ's good grace, some how."

Love is in the Air!

With Valentines Day just around the corner I decided to be ahead of the game and actually work on cards for the upcoming holiday in advance instead of the day before! I'm usually way behind on my projects, especially Christmas cards, and thought that maybe I should get my poop in a group for once. Here are the two cards I made over the weekend. I just love this stamp set. It's called Love You Much and it's from Stampin Up! (of course). I'm also absolutely in LOVE with this new DSP. It's from the Occaisions Mini Catalog and it's called Sending Love. It's adorable!!

White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies-Yummo!

Last Fall I participated in a bake off for the United Way Campaign at work. The participants were to bring their baked goods in to be judged and then once the judging was complete the goodies were divided up to be sold in the bake sale. Well, my White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies won in the Cookie and Bar category! I was so excited! I never win anything!! The prize was a gift card to a local Gourmet cooking store and a really cute fall serving tray. Even though the bake off was last fall I still wanted to upload the pictures because it was a really great time for me and I had even more fun taking pictures of the mess I made. Enjoy!

Crafting in the Cold

Well, I'm feeling pretty crafty today. I got my Cricut Create about 2 days ago and so far I'm loving it. I keep going over and over the crazy things I can do now in my head and it's almost overwhelming!! I can't wait to get some vinyl and try doing some projects w/ that. I will post pics when I do. Stay tuned..
