A Rainy Day Project

So I was doing some blog surfing yesterday and I came across this amazing blog, love from texas, and I decided to copy a project!

Jessica originally borrowed this little idea from Southern Living Magazine.
And turned it into this:
And after putting my own spin on it I was able to come up with this:

Soo much fun!!! I am still trying to figure out the best spot to display this little piece, and I am debating maybe adding a little extra detail to the edges with a piece of paisley scrapbooking paper!!! Still a work in progress, but I love it!!!


A Tribute to the Judds...

Just rediscovered my long lost love for this goodie of an album:


I couldn't even begin to put a number to the countless hours I spent locked in the bedrooms of my "youth" singing these songs to myself. And by singing I mean full on rocking out!! I truly was a country girl. It strikes me to listen to the lyrics today. As I familiarize myself with them again I am reminded of how much these songs took me on a journey through the worlds I hoped to one day call my future. A future filled with both love and broken hearts. Back then that "future" seemed to be filled with so much hope, promise, and stories that were yet to be written. Although I am pleased to say my life today is still filled with just as much hope (if not more) I can't help but thank God for both the parts of the songs I have experienced, and the ones I never had too!!!

So thank you Naomi and Wynonna!!! Thank you for being a part of creating the memories of my childhood, for teaching me to dream, and for making each and every Christmas absolutely perfect!!!
