The celeb that made the set of six plates for her mother said she wished she would have given herself about a month to get familiar with the clay and the technique required to make these beauties. She said it looks easy, but it's harder than you think. The celeb also made a set of six appliqued napkins and napkin rings to go with her plates and then presented the entire bundle to her mother for Mother's Day. How cool is that? I just think these would make awesome gifts for Christmas, especially if you know someone with a family member that has some old pieces of hand stitched lace to use as your pattern. I would love a whole set of these to hang in my dining room. Anyway, this is something I think I want to try. I'll let you know how things turn out and if I actually get the chance to try this craft. It looks amazing and I'm anxious to see if I can make a set for myself and maybe a few other people as well. Time will tell.
~ I'm extremely grateful to my Heavenly Father for hearing and answering even my most simple of prayers. Each time I receive the answers I've been looking for I feel so very grateful for all that I have and for the way each answer comes in profoundly personal ways. What a blessing it is to know that I can pray to my Heavenly Father anytime, anywhere, and he will hear and answer. I think we sometimes take that wonderful relationship for granted and I sincerely hope I never do. My life would not be the same without my Heavenly Father in the every day details of my life. I've had a lot to turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer over the past several weeks. From things like money issues and stretching our dollars, to helping me figure out how to handle some things I wasn't aware of with our pool all by myself, and trying to deal with all of my goofy health issues lately. I have been very blessed.
~ Tonight Curtis is off with friends. I was invited to a birthday party for a friend in our ward, but I won't be able to make it. She was doing a Lu La Roe party which I am dying to see how they operate. I've seen their stuff, but haven't had the chance to check sizes or patterns for myself. So, I text my friend and she agreed to take me over to her friends house the next time she goes over so I can take a look around with her. I was thrilled about that! Even though I wasn't about to make it to my friends party, I hope she has a wonderful birthday. So, Lexi, Kevin, and I are enjoying a nice quiet evening alone together. Kevin's watching one of his shows in the back bedroom while I'm busy doing laundry and watering the lawn and Lexi is also watching a show as well. It's not the ideal FHE evening, but everyone is happy and that's half the battle. Besides, Kevin just took the medication Curtis picked up at the pharmacy so he just might be asleep in a bit anyway. At least we hope it has that effect on him since he has been suffering a bit over the past couple of days. I think maybe the heat is getting to him like the cooler weather gets to him. I don't know....it could be the humidity or the barometric pressure. I just guessing, but something happens.
Well, I should get going. Take care and we will talk again soon.
