Feature Friday!

Starting now, I am doing this new thing called Feature Friday. Every Friday I will be featuring a friend of mine's cute bedroom, home, or diy idea. Can't wait! :)

To kick it off, I am featuring one of my best friends, Lauren!

{we love having the same name}


What she used:

thumb tacks
coffee filters
tree branch
clothes pins
a nail

How to flowers: First take the push pins and apply glitter to them {extra effect}. Then take 3 or 4 coffee filters with a push pin, and push the pin into the wall. Then, crinkle the coffee filters, BUT be careful not to over crinkle them so they look fresh.

How to hanging branch: Put a nail in the wall and stick the end of the branch into the nail {it's that simple!} Take your pictures and some clothes pin and hang!

*For an extra effect: Spray paint your tree branch silver or gold!

Ah, Lauren is so creative!! Love this DIY idea :)
Thanks for letting me share Lo!

Sincerely Yours,

Ready for Spring?

Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait to wear bright colors again! I love the winter for its cute scarfs, big peacoats, and knit beanies, but I am a huge fan of color, which is not so popular at this time of year. So yay for Spring, thanks for saving me!

What You Will Be Seeing Spring 2011 :)

Today, I just came across some amazing blogs. One of which is Moth Design. I was searching through the photos of Erica's home, and fell in love with her creative idea of framing shopping bags! I always hate to throw away my cute bags from juicy, anthropolgie, etc. But I never thought of using them as art! Here are some picture's of Erica's adorable closet...

Check out Erica over at Moth Design for more pictures and inspiration :)

Let your creativity flow...

Yesterday was such a fun day. Some of my best girlfriends came over my house and for 5 hours, all we did was arts & crafts {sounds like a great day to me!}. Mostly my friends scrapbooked, while some painted. I spent the whole day making crosses for my friends. I made one and they all wanted one! Definitely makes me feel good :) I'm thinking I'm going to master cross-making and sell them on etsy! Why not!? I am also in the process of making hand painted scripture canvases! I already have a bunch of friends who want some for their room's :) Ahh, brings me so much joy. I love my friends. They are truly such a blessing. :)

Here's some of the stuff I've been making:

Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!

Spreading the love, one sandwhich at a time!

Today, my college group at my church started up our homeless ministry again. Over the summer, myself and my good friends Katherine & Elyse, started up this homeless ministry with the heart to serve these people's physical needs, but most importantly, their spirtual needs. We would go to Costco and buy lots and lots of bread, PB&J, snacks, candy, and fruit. I think our highest number of lunch bags we gave out was 84! And that was only in a span of a few minutes. We always put a little bible verse in. Hopefully it's something they sneak away in their pocket and pull out during the week for an encouraging reminder of God's love and faithfulness. Today was such a great turn out. We have gotten our entire college group ministry involved, and had over 20 people come today (we usually only have 10 at the most). So that was definitely encouraging. And what's really awesome is we got to hand out hot coco! They just loved that. A nice hot drink on a semi-chilly day. But what is so awesome is looking around and seeing my friends praying with these people and just listening to them and taking the time to hear their story...

LOVE. It heals the soul. We are all called to love others as if they were ourselves (Mark 12:30-31). We are to carry each other's burdens (Galatians 6:2) and sacrifice our wants and our needs for the good of someone else. Love is powerful. Love died on the cross for you & for me.

Who will you love today?

In the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "“Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.”

Sincerely Yours,
