King James Version (KJV)
Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
I hope this week has found you well. I especially hope that you mothers had a great Mother's Day! Mine was pretty nice and I got a new Tervis tumbler cup! I so love my Tervis tumblers - for those not familiar, when you use the matching lid, they become adult sippy cups! They're perfect for klutzes like me! (and they're made in the USA!) No, I was not paid to promote these cups, I'm just a huge fan! I love them so much that I bought two of the "teacher" cups for my son's teacher and assistant for Teacher Appreciation Week!
|I received "Trendy Bird"!|
I've also been busy on a new craft project - I really like this one too! I recently set up my "new" office in the guest bedroom. I use the quotation marks on "new" because all of the furniture for my office was scavenged from other parts of the house. I did get some truly new accessories at TJMaxx and Target though and am so happy to have made me a new girly-style Christian decorated haven! The rest of my house is mostly neutral to appease the men in the house (husband and son) so this is the first place I've let my true girly style loose! There are flowers and candles, a soft-glowing salt rock lamp, and a swirly metal cross I found at Hobby Lobby.
To the left of my small armoire-style desk I have a cute narrow bookshelf. I found baskets to fit each shelf for $5 each at TJMaxx. They fit perfectly, blend well and hide the clutter well. Above the bookshelf needed some artwork though and I had already maxed out my budget on the other accessories.

Sorry about the glare! I have no idea how to photograph glass without a glare.
This was the perfect opportunity for a craft project, and it cost under $5 to do! I found the picture frame for $3 at Walmart and the scrapbook paper was like .30 for each piece. I just ran a piece of the scrapbook paper through my printer for the Bible verse, and used my son's Elmer's Xtreme hold glue stick to attach the pieces.
The best part? I'm giving you the templates for if you want to do this project yourself! All you have to do is buy an 8x10 frame, some scrapbook paper in the colors you desire, print/cut/trace/cut (including cutting the 8-1/2"x11" paper down to 8x10 to fit your frame), glue the pieces and enjoy your new artwork! (I didn't include templates for the flowers or leaves because I just freehand cut those out. Get creative and have fun!)
