DIY spectacular!


Almost everyone in this house has been sick. I can't remember a time we have battled sickness this much. I hate it! I have been cooped up in this house with sick people for way too long. I decided to make the most of it! Here are some pics of things I made this weekend. This is what a late night addiction to pinterest will do! Every single thing you see...I found on pinterest...and copied. Yep! Now that I know how to do these things, I can add my own creative spin. Easy to do with the headbands for sure!

It seems I am finally catching the "sickness", but now I have to go to grocery store with morning sickness in 103 degree weather. Ugh! I will try to get on computer tomorrow to share all the linkage. Takes too long to do that with the iPad! Next project on the list? A necklace I found a tutorial for! Excited! Oh and if you wonder how I have time to do this.I don't! You should see how my house suffered while I was "glued" to crafting! Laundry is now so out of control that I could cry, but at least I can wear a pretty headband or brooch while folding! I have done lots of thinking, praying and resolving while crafting. I needed this! I don't feel guilty.

Thank you Lord for answering my prayer. Passion reignited! Finally!

I love DIY projects!

Wow--everything looks great! Hey, DIY projects are much better therapy than a lot of other stuff ;) Hope you guys are feeling better soon. Maybe this will be your sick run for the season.

Kate, if I get back to marathon running, that's where I will RESOLVE. You know that's right! The prayers I prayed during training. WOW!! Thank you, so much, friend. I am sick of the sick!

Thanks Wendy! I sure as heck hope so! This is so not fun. Jeremy with a cold has been rough. He could never handle labor! lol!

Wendy said...

Ohhhh...have you seen the "Man Cold" video on youtube?? I'm going to e-mail it to you b/c you will LOVE it and it will make you laugh! :)

Feel better! Amazed at all you have accomplished while sick!

It is so good to see you creating; seems so Amanda-ish!

Amanda said...

Thank you Kelly! I do seem to be enjoying lots of "Amanda-ish" things lately. My best friend had a talk with me a few weeks ago about being "ME". The past few months I have felt like a stranger to myself. I have been diligent at getting back to who HE created me to be. That means doing everything with PASSION. :) feels good!

Thank you for ALWAYS cheering me on. Love you!
