Life Promises for Success

First, let me say... I LOVE this little book.  Life Promises for Success ~promises from God on achieving your best~ by Jim Tressel is a keeper.  

On the rear cover of this book, Jim Tressel, the head football coach of Ohio State and author, says "If you're struggling with your place in the world, if things have become difficult and you feel like giving up, this little book will encourage you, lift you up when you're wrestling withlife, push you forward, and motivate you to be a better person-and a more vital part of whatever team you serve."

This is one of those books that you want to keep around to inspire and reassure you with quotes, short stories and touching messages of scripture.  We all have bad days, sometimes we have more bad days than good.  Life Promises for Success reminds us that we're not alone, that everyone experiences the down times and can use some encouragement and words of love.

As you turn each page of this sweet book, you are greeted with a few scripture messages on the left and then encouraging words on the right.  The encouraging words are divided into categories like hope, generosity, enthusiasm, attitude and teamwork.  You can flip to any page of the book and have a quick boost to your attitudes and demeanor.  

I must also mention that the construction of this book just thrills me.  Literally, the paper it is written on is beautiful.  The cover is padded... PADDED!... and the pages are nearly cover stock weight.  This book will most definitely stay with me to inspire me in the coming years. 

I would definitely recommend Life Promises for Success for anyone.  It would make a fantastic Mother's Day gift!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
