"In the Quiet"

Lately, honestly, I have found I haven't had much to say..but a great deal of thinking has been going on in this little (well not little, but you know what I mean) brain of mine..
Situations have presented themselves that have caused me to be quiet, to be still, to seek out the solace of my God and his words...
Learning from the lessons presented everyday..
Being purposeful in my words, my movements..

Then this morning I read a poignant blog post from the most beautiful Christy Tomlinson
entitled "Beautiful Heartbreaks"..
within her writing I was inspired, brought back to center, you know what I mean..
She finished her post with the beautiful video below and the words came...

Blessings and lessons to all..

**A Few Little Goodies I spotted and Love"

Have been admittedly rather absent from my blog of late,
mainly because my Mr has had weddings the last couple of weekends and has been crazy busy on the post editing..
Beings we just share our one computer, it makes it a tad difficult to get a moment for posting when there are deadlines to be met on the photography front..
So I awoke early this morning to carve out a bit of time for a little "Fav Love" this morning...

Here we go!!

I am currently in the midst of crocheting an afghan and loving, loving, loving every minute of it..
But once I have completed this one, I do believe I will move on to this!!

I think it is just beautiful and I even love this mixture of colors..reminds me of a sweater I once had..
I found the tutorial here

Still puttering about my little art space in my world..
re-organizing galore and I came across this idea and I do believe I am going to use it indeed!!
How cute are these..oh I can think of a million ways to use these and a million designs to make when hanging on the wall..

I have always thought it quite a waste to dispose of all those toilet paper cardboard tubey things and the paper towel ones too..
And then I saw this...
Hmmmmmm...I do believe this must hit my project list..
I found the instructions here, look for the date listing of September 27th, 2011
How darn ingenius is this!!

I came across this idea and thought it such a great texture and background for my mixed media canvases
you can see it up close and personal here
Once at the site search "yarn prints" dated October 27th, 2011..

I am always looking for ways to use up scraps of anything, but I have to admit I have tons of scrapbooking paper scraps..I think these are soooooo darn cute and would be darling on my mantle..
Ohhhhh so many projects, so little time :-)

And lastly...I totally need a few new beauties for my closet...

I would be happy to start here..

Adorable, especially when someone else puts the outfit together..
Now I just have to hunt for this on a bargain budget..

Happy Friday
