Spring Fun

Spring Fun

Hi ladies! Today, I am going to share a few things that are fun to do in spring.

  1. Press flowers– There are SO many lovely wildflowers in spring. We have a greenbelt behind our house where there are LOTS of wildflowers. I (or my brothers) gather a few and then I press them in a big notebook. Any notebook is fine, but I like the composition notebooks that stores sell in the school section. Once you get your flowers, just arrange them in the middle of the book, and put something really heavy on top. Leave them there for about a month.
  2. Sketch- I am not a very good artist, but it is kinda relaxing to go sit outside and draw.
  3. Riding horses/Biking– If you bike, or ride horses, spring is wonderful time to do it because it is not as hot. Now, this doesn’t go for Texas, where I live, but it is still fun.

Hope you enjoy these activities! Have a great day!

2017 Thought Jar

2017-thought-jar

Hello, girls! I’m sorry this is late. But today, I’m here with a DIY for you. I did a thought jar last year, and it was amazing! Plus, it’s extremely easy, so I’m going to tell you how to do it. Let’s get started…

First, you’ll need a medium-sized jar.

Next, you need to write your year. I used a chalkboard sticker and some chalk, but anything to label it with is fine. Then, you’ll want to place it in a spot where you won’t forget about it. I put mine on a shelf in my room. I can see it as soon as I walk through my bedroom door. Last, but certainly not least, you fill the jar with your thoughts. It can be anything, from what you did that day to a new friend you just made. The options are limitless! I hope you have a fun time making and filling your jar!

In Christ,

Hello, ladies!! I am back with another DIY, this time a bookmark. I use this bookmark for my Bible, and it’s really easy to make, and looks awesome!

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

First, tie a knot at the end of your ribbon, about one inch away from the very end.

Then add three or four pony beads .

Tie a knot right above the pony beads.

Tie a knot about five inches away from the very end of the other side.

Add three or four more pony beads.

Ways to Keep Warm

ways-to-keep-warm

Hey, girls! Where I live, it is snowing!  I don’t know if it is snowing where you live, but most likely it is cold at this time of year. That is why I thought it would be a good fit to tell you some good ways to keep warm.

#1. Drink Hot Drinks

This always helps me keep warm in the winter. You could drink hot chocolate,                          warm cider, hot tea, coffee, or anything else warm.

#2. Layer Your Clothes

This really works, especially if you are going outside.

#3. Wear Socks

This might seem weird, but it helps! Especially fuzzy socks. 🙂

#4. Wear a Winter Hat

If you keep your head warm, your whole body will be warmer than it was before.

#5. Make Rice Heat Pockets

Heat Pockets really keep your hands warm and are easy to make. You just take some rice, sew it up in old fabric, and heat it in a microwave. You then can put it in your pockets, and stick your hands in.

I hope you girls liked these ideas! Stay warm!

DIY: Prayer Book

diy-2

Have you ever had the trouble of there being so many prayer requests at church, and you can’t remember them all? Or you write them down on a piece of paper and then lose it? I’ve come up with a simple craft to prevent this from happening again. Of course, you might not be like me. I can’t remember anything or keep a scrap of paper. So, on to the craft!

You will need:

A notebook*

Washi tape

Stickers

Colored paper

Markers or colored pencils

 Some of these things are not shown. That’s because everything except the notebook is optional. You can decorate your Prayer book any way you want! this is just what I did.

I cut a piece of paper the the size of my notebook, cutting the edges to be wavy. Then, I wrote “my prayer book” on the cover. I also write a Bible verse on it. Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Allie, that is probably spelled wrong, if it is, I’m very sorry), which is my favorite verse.

You can also use small pocket size notebooks, or already decorated notebooks like these. Prayer books make great gifts. You could include a nice pen or pencil as well.
