God's in the little things...

i was so mad at myself this morning.

i locked us out of the truck at the pool and we had to walk back home to get my spare keys.

but then i remembered that things happen for a reason.

things you wouldn't see unless you were walking back home with two curious boys.

little, helpless, feathery things. that fall from their nest. and are bleeding and need medical attention.

rescuing this baby brown thrasher was how we started our day.

chirping birdy is now at wildlife rehab 30+ miles away.

hello monday - hello new additions

hello four.
this little project was super fun and easy.
i took a canvas, my projector and found a four that i liked,
penciled it out and painted it.

hello new zippered pouch from the pleated poppy.
this is the 2nd zippered pouch i've bought from lindsey and i just adore it!
the quality is top notch and the style...speaks for itself.

hello summer project.
this beast i've lovingly named goliath.
he was given to us by some friends who were moving
and will be great storage for us.
i can't wait to get started on his makeover!

i'm saying hello monday with lisa leonard.
what are you saying hello to this week?

instafriday and {freebie friday}

i'm linking up with jeannett again for another week of photos
courtesy of my {cracked} phone.

what i'm currently reading and highly recommend to
anyone wanting to sell their handmade goodies

have you seen these?
kleenex in pretty, little pouches.
it really doesn't take much to make me happy apparently.

one thing on our summer to do list is to "complete a big puzzle".
this is actually a 3 in 1 puzzle with varying sized pieces.
nailed it.

found this in the dollar section at target.
it's custard bowl size - very small and very cute.
i stopped at one.

i got to this pick up game a few minutes too late
and missed my hubby eating it while running to 1st.
darn, i love a good wipeout.

mom's got skillz.
not camping skillz, really,
but fashioning a tent in the bedroom with a king size sheet skillz.

what's sweeter than a rice krispy treat with chocolate drizzle?
this guy.

weirdos. and proud of it.


now for the freebie friday part:
today, if you purchase more than $10 in merchandise from either one of my shops,
i'll include one of my chrysanthemum rings for FREE.
i have a limited supply (about a dozen or so), so it's first come, first serve.

i'll choose one of these pretties, box it up for you, and send it with your purchase.

*click on the buttons in my sidebar and you'll be taken right over to my shops*
have a fantastic friday!

i hope you're having a great week

here's a little peak into my week thru instagram photos...
i had a great time creating this flower wall art for my niece's birthday (she loves blue)

mother's day with my men was great. they all gave me handmade cards (even the hubs).
taught them well i have.

target kills me. i so need a girl!

my boys were driving me crazy with this creepy noise they make.
so, i pulled out the big guns. literally. i blasted them while they were watching tv with my nerf gun.
yes, this momma's packin'!
it was a sneak attack, they loved it AND they got so distracted that they stopped making the noise.
i got cool mom points and let off some steam. i highly recommend this therapy.

a mysterious man showed up at, or should i say "on", my table this week.
 i could tell the artist felt bad for drawing him on the furniture.
we all go a little crazy sometimes, right?
(don't tell him, but it was hard to act disappointed when his people are so darn cute!)

a heart shaped stone i found on a wall.
random coolness.

this guy had an ear infection this week.
some antibiotics and a trip to the library made him feel a whole lot better.

how was your week?

little happenings...

{home}school's almost out for the summer -
glory to God in the highest!

i've been busy with all things mommy, been battling tendinitis, have finished custom orders,
and even managed to create some cuteness for both of my shops!

i love, love, love these new pieces made from salvaged wood and scraps.
some feature scripture and some are simple, but they are all one of a kind.
making new things from something old and discarded is my fave!

hope you're having a great week.
i'm off to watch my little guy's baseball game.
go indians!
