BECAUSE OF HIM




A lot of really wonderful things have been happening around here. 
I have really been feeling Gods love in my life. 
Feeling closer to my Savior Jesus Christ.

Guided to friends. 
Finding opportunities to help others. 

I have been feeling like a better mom. 
A better wife
and a better friend.

I have been making it a priority to read my scriptures. 
Not just read tho. 
but study. 

Really paying attention to the story 
trying to find the lesson behind everything. 
Asking myself questions. 

I have been making my prayers more personal. 
Feeling closer to my Heavenly Father allows me 
to open up more. 
Pour my heart out to him. 
Not only for answers but also in gratitude. 

Thanking him for my life
 for all of the countless blessings I receive.  
Thanking him for the trials he allows me to have 
that he knows will make me a better me. 

Life is good. 
God is good. 

Because of Him I know that there is meaning to this life. 
I know that I can turn to him through anything.
I know that it is him who has blessed me with all that I have.

Jaysons Birthday


So this guy. . He is kinda a big deal in my life. I am absolutely 100% head over heals in love with this guy. You know when you are dating and get those butterflies.... remember them? I do. I do because this guy makes me smile. He makes me fall more in love with him each day. Sometimes we drive each other nuts but there is nobody in this world I would rather fall asleep to each night and wake up to every morning. 

I love you babe. Even if you wont read this for a month. I hope you know that you are my rock. My better half and I am so happy and feel blessed that I get to spend eternity with you!

Happy birthday babe. 

** Ty put on the candles. They were suppose to spell out Happy Birthday.... but this was way better! 

 

Easter Dolls








A few sweethearts enjoying their Sew Darling dolls for Easter. I have been feeling very blessed and grateful for all the support and love I have received. Thank you so much to all of you for your sweet words of encouragement. Starting your own shop is scary and exciting all at once. It definitely makes it a lot easier with friends and family behind you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Whats new..


Yes, Ty is potty trained.. !! YAY he is doing so well. We celebrated with Mc Donald's. Great Grandma Shirley sent up a gift card and told us to use it when he was ready!! So we did! 

I have this massive problem...No seriously I do. I can't stop rearranging our furniture. I am out of control. I have to vacuum under the couch often and when I do I move the couches around and end up getting an idea of what I might like.. One day I will find the perfect spot for everything. Plus the kids love the change. . 


Mom came to visit. We had a blast and I miss her terribly. You could say she is my best friend! I think the kids might miss her a little too;)



We watched LDS conference. So perfect and much needed spiritual uplift.


Missing the family means a lot of facetime... Even for the babies.


Park dates and selfies...


Feeling blessed with the love and support I have received from friends, family and strangers with my new shop! It has been a dream of mine to create this for years. I have had the name picked out and everything just waiting for the courage to do it...

-Dieter F. Uchdorf

What I needed to hear. The push that changed my heart.

Mermaid dolly

 My mermaid dolls are made using a Dolls and Day Dreams Pattern.


I absolutely melt over these mermaid dolls. Everything about them is adorable to me. The size, bright colors and soft cuddliness. They are 16 inches in height and generously stuffed with pollyfill. They were triple stitched through the arms and tail for the extra dolly love from little girls. Their faces, shells and flowers are all hand stitched with bright sewing floss. All made with love and ready for a new home.


I only have four left (in the above picture) sewn and ready to be mailed out for Easter.
