August 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

Can you believe that it is almost August already??  Where did the summer go? Well…I guess that it is time for the August 2015 visiting teaching handout, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

This month the message is:  Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ-Meek and Humble.  You can see the entire message by clicking on the title.  

I decided to use a quote and a scripture this time.  The scripture is from Luke 22:42 and the quote is from Elder Ulisses Soares.Aug-2015-VT-000-Page-1 (more…)

Our 24th of July Family Party

We had a fun 24th of July family party last weekend.  It was great because we had our entire family!  That does not seem to happen as much as it used to when the kids were all smaller…funny how that happens!

We went up to our family property for a little fishing, 4-wheeling, games and a great time being with one another.July 24th,2015 (more…)

Citrus Infused Vinegar

Citrus Infused Vinegar!

Have any of you tried Citrus Infused Vinegar for cleaning?  My oh My…I love that I can clean with vinegar but have a fresh citrus smell!  It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that!  

Citrus Infused VinegarI made a batch of this vinegar and I fell in love immediately with the fresh smell and the wonderful cleaning job that it does.  You can use this on your wood floors, your tile, your bathrooms,  on mirrors…really about any cleaning job you might have!  I used this on a stainless steel drinking fountain and it made it shine as well as smell good!

Sewing Room Makeover Ideas

Today I am finally showing you some of my sewing room makeover ideas!  It has been a fun project to do with my granddaughter and we have enjoyed seeing it all come together!  But we would get part of it done and cleaned and organized and then we would make pillows, pillows and more we would have to clean up that mess and then I quilted my Americana quilt in between times and had to clean that all up!  This room definitely gets used!sewing room makeover (more…)

Sewing Room Ideas-Sneak Peek!

Today I have a little Sewing Room Ideas-Sneak Peek!

 We have been in our house for more than 18 years now and I decided that this summer was going to be the time that we started doing a little bit of sprucing up again!  One of the advantages of being an empty-nester is that when all the kids leave home and go out on their own…you get to take over their empty rooms!  And believe me…I have taken over every one of my kids rooms!  :)  We have a big bonus room over the garage and I have turned it into my sewing/quilting room!  :)  It has never really been totally organized and decorated, so I decided that this was the summer to do it!sewing room-before (more…)
