My obsessions:

1.Crafting: I love to make things especially children's clothing. I am so grateful to be married to a wonderful man who puts up with my oh so messy crafting:)

2. Photos: I love photos...I take pictures of husband gets agrevated sometimes because I have to have so many. I just feel like as long as you have a picture of it you'll never forget that it happened.

3. Ribbon: I have so much ribbon at my house it is crazy. I have it to make hairbows...but I save even the smallest pieces of it that are too small to make hairbows just incase I find something else crafty to do with it;)

4. Cloth: I design children's clothing so I am constantly in cloth stores, but I have a hard time not buying it all...I can always think of something to make out of it:)

5. Family: I think that there is nothing like family. I love spending time with my family and being there for them.

Finding your Lemonade Moment......

When Life Throws Lemons...Make Lemonade

I can't believe it has been almost two months since I have blogged:( Where does the time go?!?

I loged on to blog and saw my last post.....hince the title of my post. What a suiting title!!! I had no idea when I posted that post that the next two months would be filled with life throwing one lemon after another. Life is funny sometimes the way something happens that you don't understand and then looking back you realize that God has perfect timing!!! The Saturday of my last post...I had just finished making lemonade and sat down to do my six word that's where the phrase came from that day. However over the past two months life has thrown me lemon after lemon, and many times I have thought of that phrase.

I have come to understand that life is full of lemons (things that leave a bitter taste/feeling in your mouth/life). But when we learn to take those bitter things in our life and mix them with the sugar/sweetness of life we realize that the end result is something wonderfully delicious. Many times we tend to focus on the lemons in our life because they are so apparent...they have a strong and lasting taste/effect that is hard to forget. We are so busy focussing on them that we let the sugar or sweetness of life pass us by. I have often wondered why some people who are on their death bed look so peaceful and content.....maybe it's that they finally see the finished product of their lives (the lemonade) and realize that without the lemons their life wouldn't have been so wonderfully delicious.I'm glad to be back......I missed my bloggy friends:)
