It's Thursday......

Yes, I will be the first to admit I have been a bit out of the loop lately.  Things are going well.  I am loving school...I have stepped on board a church mission in our area working with their women's ministry.  So there is alot going on.  But as I have stated in the past, I am struggling with this whole "creative" thing that has been lost as bit in the last year.  I am so used to having tons of projects all going on at the same time....shows to get ready for.....booths to fill.....orders to knock out......and all of that is "silent" right now. 

I thought the thing to do was to take a "Big Girl Pill" and just realize that things change, focus shifts, "to everything there is a season"....etc, etc, etc.  But there is still this nagging thing in the back of my mind that I want to jump back in.  I thought about shows, maybe doing one.....about booths as an outlet.  But a friend of ours was talking to me about her cheesecake business and wanted to brainstorm ideas.  I was so excited for her and what she is getting into.  Then in class the other day, my instructor was talking about rice bags and teaching how to make them in class to use in your massages.....they are going to use tube socks....(insert shudder here) you know that I was making the muslin bag ones with lavendar flowers and oil...with a nice pillow cover you could wash.  Well, those of you that know me, know that the brain kicked into overdrive...LOL.  So I have decided to have a holiday open house here in November.  It gives me time to prepare and I am inviting my cheesecake friend to be here to and maybe some others.  I think it is a way for me to have something to work toward and test the waters without going off the deepend.  In other words, if it doesn't go well you are all getting rice bags for Christmas!!! LOL

Anyway...things are going well.  I am looking into doing an online study of Jonah with the women on
It would be great if you would join me in this!!  I found the workbook available at our local Lifeway and will be picking it up tomorrow.  But you can go to their website and download the first chapter to see if it is something that you would like to do.

Thanks for reading....for being a follower....for commenting....for encouragement.  Life is at a really good place right now.  And frankly there have been moments when I had trouble seeing this far down the line.  Your sharing, faith, prayers and friendship have meant so much.

Off to start those rice bags.....and what color did you need????  LOL

Hugs to you all,   Debbie


  1. I always need rice bags. Any colour, any fabric. Let me know when in November, maybe the guys will have that time off.

  2. I would love for you guys to visit...and I always know that when I am doing rice bags to set some aside for you...LOL


I love hearing your input, comments, ideas and encouragment.....thank you!!!
