The Lord Stood With Me. 2nd Timothy

The Lord Stood With Me. 2nd Timothy by cjd-sign We often go through challenges in our lives, but God is there all the time. He is with our every step, our every tear, our every joy. He stands by us. He is our rock and our shield.
Today, think about all the times in your life when you realized that God has been there. It will make your heart glad and give strength to your soul.
May Our Lord God bless each and everyone of you in this New Year!

Day One of New Crafting Room ~ DIY

 Hi Friends!
Well, the room revamp has started and I've put in my Up-Cycled Boxes & made some Cork Board Pin Boards.
The shelves were hung, some of them, and more stuff was moved into the space.
This next week, we'll be putting more into place and moving the tables into place. I hope to have more of the boxes finished and ready for patterns, notions, & findings. I hope to have the photography studio area set up and ready for new jewelry photos! 
There's a lot to do, but it looks as if I'll be moved in by the middle of next month!

 Here is the new pegboard area.
 The photo frame, above, is a patterned paper cut to size and fitted into the frame for symmetry. 

I like the way it turned out. This space will get a lot of use. I plan to use them as Idea Boards.

 I'll keep you posted next week for more of my DIY's that I'm using in this space! Look for better photos and a more finished looking room!!
Enjoy and thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to…

OH Deer! Look what we saw! and Video Links for Deer Documentary

Hi Friends!
 Here are some photos we took on our drive a few weeks ago. We saw the tree and only one of the deer. As we focused the camera in a bit, we found more than one!

They were so still and we did not dare venture any closer and loose the photos!

With the fresh snow, the track were visible and it almost looked like there were a few more off to the right and behind that house.
All I can say is that they were so pretty sitting there and sunning themselves. These re mule deer, you can tell by the ears and the black on their backs. These were taken back in January 2o16.
Hope you like them as much as we did!
Enjoy! Here is my YouTube personal Deer Video. MY FIRST VIDEO!! It is short, but we saw this lovely just past Taylor Lake, Blue Mesa area in Colorado.

Here is a great link to a deer documentary. It is on Netflix, but you may be able to see it via another location. I could find


Winter Gardens to Chase Away The Blues

Hi Friends,

Winter can sure drag on and on...
But today, we will look at several cool indoor gardening ideas that will chase those Winter BluesAWAY!!!

Corner Garden  This is most like the one I have done, bringing in outdoor plants for the winter and some of the house plants. I have placed it over the heater vent, so watering in more often. But I do like the color and the feeling of gardening all year long.

Angled Herb GardenI've considered this, but since I root all my herbs in water, I would set this more upright and have water and not dirt. But good idea for taking them off my windowsills!Photo and idea from Camille Styles.  Get instructions
