Spring has been singing the sweetest songs to me this morning....maybe you heard the same songs at your house....birds, silence, lawn mowers in the distance, more silence....all topped off with fresh, cool, air whispering in through the windows. We've been getting rain showers almost everyday here for the past few weeks....they bring a smile to my face, as there is nothing that cheers me as much as seeing the rain clouds roll in, the temperatures dropping a bit, and smelling the earth as it is touched by rain....it's been the most wonderful spring.
I only have a few minutes this morning before we head off to church, but I wanted to share a little something with you. I created this for the Emma's Paperie blog after this tiny phrase had been floating around in my mind....I knew what I wanted to say, but didn't know how it would come together until after it was complete. I used a sweet Melissa Frances chipboard house as my focal point and then went to town. A complete supply list and step-by-step instructions can be found on Emma's blog. This was such fun to make as I had my own little house in mind as I created this.....hopefully what is felt within the walls of our home is always love.....I want it to seep into every corner and be felt as the doors open....it is so important to me. I want my family to feel safe, loved, accepted, at peace, and like themselves in my home...it's an ongoing quest, but one I enjoy each day. We are careful what we listen to...what we watch and mindful of how we speak to each other. I want the angels to feel welcome in my home and for the Spirit of my Heavenly Father to dwell here as well. It seems we all need a haven...a place to call our own, and I hope my family will find it here with me, wherever our home may be...always.
I'm looking forward to some fun Summertime creating and first on my list is the latest workshop by my friend, Lisa Pace. I have enjoyed her past workshops and this one really excites me as it's all about my most favorite holiday. You can read more about her Americana Workshop and get signed up and ready to go by visiting HERE....it begins tomorrow :)
Off I go....hope you have a wonderful Sunday today.
