Favorite Things Friday

Finally figuring out a way to do something crafty without feeling like I am neglecting my children!

I have been so wanting to do something creative, but lack time, organization, patience....oh, I lack so many things!
As we creep into late January, I am fast running out of time to send those thank you cards from Christmas that I so often procrastinate and then run out of time to send and then kick myself later....
So, today, I got out the stuff, told the kids it was arts & crafts time and we got to work. After a huge mess, a lot of fun and a little fighting and complaining.........I got ONE card done.
Maybe everyone will settle for a thank you email?

You are so funny. Love your card and I think that everyone in your life would totally understand and welcome your thank you email. I have not been blogging much but with the long weekend I wanted to say hello to everyone. I read that you were sick, how are you feeling now? I was just curious as to how your homeschooling was going? I do remember to lift up the homeschooling group often in my prayers as I know how difficult it can be, but what an absolute blessing it is as well. Just remember, in the end all that we do for the Lord will all be worth it. I pray the Lord will give you strength, peace, direction, organization and great love for where He has you right now. God bless and by the way the next crop is Feb 27-28 and I am looking forward to it!!!!

Hugs,
Melanie
