I think this sports tile is the most detailed yet. When I saw the picture of what Shaunda wanted, I was a little apprehensive. But, once I got started, it wasn't bad at all. I think it turned out pretty good.

With a suggestion from Lindsey, we joined the local gym. It's funny how I suggested itover a year ago, but when Lindsey asked her daddy, he gave in! Go figure! Todd had been wanting to try the elliptical machine, and I was starting to get a little bored with the treadmill. Notice Todd has already found the remote and has FOX NEWS on!
Ashley came home the other night, so she went with us as a guest. She had a little problem doing sit ups on the incline. That was just her first one!
Our speaker, Julie Woodruff, flew in from Tennessee. She was great! During the first session , she spoke about losing our first love. If we let our love for Jesus fade, then we get deeper in sin and farther away from Christ. God is right where we left Him. We have to return to him and rekindle that love with our Lord. Sometimes I get so busy that God gets pushed aside, and I realized that I need to be there with Him first and foremost. Julie also spoke about what kind of Christian woman we should be and forgiveness. She is a wonderful speaker.

The zebras had to be the easiest even though they had a few more pieces to cut out.

I tried a little mixed media yesterday! I didn't know what that was until I started blogging and looking at etsy. Anyway I used paper, paints, and wood to create this plaque. I got a little inspiration at doodledesignshop.com and found another way to use cabinet doors!

On February 20-21our church's women's ministry is hosting a ladies retreat called "Bloomery". These pots will be used as our decorations and sold afterwards. The decorating committee met Friday night at Denise's house to paint. These should add lots of color to our tables. If you would like to come to the retreat, let me know and I can get you details. Our deadline for sign up is Feb. 11th. We will have worship, song, food, and crafts. Cindy and I will be teaching a session to make flower fabric pins.

I put a brown wash over the barstools to age them and to make the gold and turquoise color not so bright. They look better without the camera's flash.
