So many things, so little time!

I'm not sure where to begin...I have so much to share. Let's see...first, my fall crafty swap gift I received from Michele. It was so fun, and right up my ally. She put some special time into it, and I thank you for all the wonderful items! I can't wait for the next one to start up :-) No pressure AZ girl...I know you gots lots go'n on around your hacienda!

This is a close up of the little scare crow inside a mason jar she made for me...too cute!

Next I'd like to share with you all another special gift I received...but this time it was completely unexpected and it was from my awesome, talented, beautiful mother! She is one of the most talented women I know and I wouldn't be able to do what I do if it wasn't for her patience and support. She never gave up pursuing me with all her crafty creativeness. She always introduced me to ideas of craftiness, whether it was sewing, painting, quilting, building, or beautifying (not sure if that's a word) but you get my meaning, right? She never stops surprising me, another reason I love her like I do. Here's the special gift: A beautiful fall table runner...

Lastly, I finished a couple of projects. A diaper bag for a sweet friend. She and her family just picked up a new addition to their family...they are fostering a new little baby boy. What a tremendous blessing they are going to be for this little baby. It's a precious gift to have a child, and it's hard to understand when they are left alone, abused, and uncared for. God give us all your grace to minister to families who are in crisis. They so desperately need you, they need our love and patience too. Thank you for giving this baby a home and a family to care for him.
