catch up

Projects Lately:

skirt out of dress; looks better not on the hanger ;)

jeans into capris, added fabric to the hem and pocket

closeup of skirt material

jean pocket detail

teddy bear for Nathanael's birthday

two different scarves out of a sweater. I like the second one better. third picture just shows the pattern of the fabric.

shirt out of XL men's shirt... I like it. it's comfortable and nice and long.

room redone

A series of before/after pictures:




halfway after

after, after, after, after, etc.
 close up. Ritz crackers, PB, and pastel floral box are not permanent.

 if you know me, you know I have an odd love for 1. statues like this of people. 2. especially old people. 3. cute old people.

the pile of b&w photos are for pasting up somewhere on the wall later, if I get the chance. they look nice on a pile too though. ;)

 ahhhhh. I still love it. (I know you're supposed to decorate in odd numbers... I don't plan things out very well so I hammered up three nails, realized it looked pretty bad so off centered and added another one.)

 instead of laying them on the floor in a pile.

 books sorted roughly by color.

 okay, my room isn't all sparkly clean. but where in the world am I supposed to pile the shoes other then the floor?

 clock as a jewelry holder? kind of tacky maybe. but I like it. a few more pictures will be added here when I find the cardstock again.
 full view of that wall.

 black and white in real life, not sepia. but you get the idea.

so that's it!

p.s. how odd, 11:10 must be the time to post things... seeing the last two posts.

I like to think I'm gracious; prone to forgive readily. Slow to judge because I've been found wanting and I'm pardoned.

But looking at others I think, "I can see the pride behind their actions" when the one with pride is behind my condemning eyes.

Unless your morals are identical to mine, or unless I really like you right away, I'll find a fault or two with you and think, "I'm better," when NO. No, no. I'm not.

Maybe because they look more in-control. Or maybe they seem more sanctified. Or maybe they just seem popular. So I try to make excuses;
They must be putting on a front. Their motives must be wrong. They're always looking for attention. Because they couldn't actually be nicer and better then me! NO. No, no. They probably are.

Pride is what is making me cynical of Children of God.
