Room Divider – The CSI Project: Hardware Challenge


So this week's challenge over on The CSI Project is the hardware store challenge. A few years ago when I redid my laundry/scrapbooking/craft/sewing room I needed a small room divider to hide the cat's box. A trip to the hardware store for some wood, molding, tin, hinges and a couple of hours of work and I have a great place to display the Squirt's art work. I use magnetic clips to hang some of his pieces he draws and paints. I still have some of my favorites that he did a few years ago along with some recent ones.


Beautiful Things

After reading a blog post from An Idol Heart this week and seeing it on a post from Pete Wilson this song is staying in my head. Below is a video Crosspoint Church put together using images from their flood relief work in Nashville.

The song is Beautiful Things by Gungor and is quickly becoming a favorite.

The message is so true. God can make beautiful things out of anything, if only we let Him. What beautiful things is He doing in your life right now?

Taking a Break

Having to take another break here on the blog. Last week was incredibly busy and this week even more so. I didn't do so well on my Week in the Life project last week so I 'm concentrating on it this week amidst the busy-ness. These last few weeks of school seem as busy as it does at Christmas. It's not bad though. Lots of substitute teaching and several photos sessions booked for the  next few weeks. All good stuff. Just need to shift my focus for a few days.  I'll be back next week.

In the meantime you should check out the Faith Barista blog. It has become one of my favorite faith blogs. Be sure to check out her 90 second video and click the link in her post to vote for it.


I love this Story People quote entitled Geographer.

I like Geography best, he said, because your mountains and rivers know the secret. Pay no attention to boundaries.

The Creative Mama

I just discoveredThe Creative Mama blog a few weeks ago.  It's such a great site. You should definitely check it out, especially if you love photography. They have a great giveaway going on right now too.
