A Few Things I've Made

Do you ever feel like you've been running and running and running?! And then when you finally sit down, you can't even remember what you've been so busy doing? That's how I've felt lately. We've had so much going on, and it's not over yet.

We've had vacation, wedding showers, visiting family, weddings, funerals, church events. It seems like if you can name it, we've done it. : ) Anyways, I have had a little bit of free time - I don't know where it came from!  - but I've been able to do a little bit of crafting.

I had a friend have a baby about a month or so ago. So I decided to make her a cute little scrapbook to document all those precious moments with her new baby boy. Here are a few of the pages:










I was also able to make a pair of pants for The Husband to match a jacket I made a few years ago.


There were a few flaws, but nothing I couldn't hide with a few more stitches... : )

Have a good weekend!

Jennifer: An O'Malley Love Story by Dee Henderson

The final piece of the puzzle: Jennifer O'Malley. The story of how Jennifer meets her Tom. If you've read the O'Malley series, you'll definitely want to pick up this book!



It's a summer of change for Jennifer O'Malley.

The busy physician has a pediatrics practice in Dallas, Texas, and meeting and falling in love with surgeon Tom Peterson is adding a rich layer to her life. She's sorting out how to introduce Tom to her family - she's the youngest of seven - and thinking about marriage.

She's falling in love with Jesus too, and knows God is good. But that faith is about to be tested, and in a way she didn't expect. The results will soon transform her entire family. 

Just 154 pages - you can have it read in a weekend! I couldn't put this book down! Dee Henderson is an amazing writer. She pulls you into the story as if you belonged. The O'Malley siblings become family; their friends become your friends. Reading about Jennifer was like catching up with a friend who I hadn't seen in a few years. It's a short but very sweet book, and it'll make you want to reread all the other O'Malley books! 

After reading this book, the story of the O'Malley family is finally complete.

Bethany House supplied a copy of this book for me, but the review is completely my own opinion.

Paintings

Hello! It's been quite a while since I've written. So, what have I been up to? Not much... : ) A little working, a little gardening, a little reading, and a little crafting. After attending a painting party back home, I've been in a painting kind of mood. Here's the paintings I've done so far.
