Being totally honest it has been difficult to plug back in. If I had not just completed the Esther Bible study reminding me that God has a perfect plan in all of this, I would be in despair. I continue to tell myself that ALL THINGS work together for GOOD for those who love the Lord, and that does mean all things! I will keep looking to Him, the only one who holds all the answers. I may be a little slow getting there, but I will plug back in. I subbed again today and tomorrow and have a busy week ahead. I just wanted to update all of you wonderful ladies who have been praying. Thank you so much. I couldn't do it without the prayers of all of you and so many others that are praying. Have a blessed week, and hope to be back with some fun stuff soon! Jackie

First of all I would like to say that I am no more deserving of this makeover than any of the others. We all need a little lift and help from friends, from time to time.
This is one of those times for me. Last January I became a true Empty Nester. i had been forewarned by many that I should prepare for this and in some ways I did. I did not expect the emotional adjustment that it would be.
I am at the place where some things in my life are in desperate need of a makeover. My health and physical appearance as well as some much needed updating that needs to be done around the house.
Even though my daughter is married now, her health is still a concern as I have shared in recent posts. This takes me in yet another direction. I could definitely use some help getting focused at home, and could use some much needed, helpful advice to make some budget friendly updates and changes around the house.
I would like for my home to be warm, friendly and inviting so others feel welcome and at home too. I am on a limited budget since we also have a son in college. I definitely could use the help and inspiration to get my creativity flowing once again. This girl would be grateful to win this prize! Jackie

I am really trying to get in the mood. The weather here was gorgeous today, but I am just give out! After not sleeping well the night my sweet daughter was in the ER, it is all catching up with me, not to mention, I have been subbing almost every day. I said I would not commit the two days I have free this week, and I have already committed to one of those days.
In other news, I was pretty excited about something here called Peaches to Beaches. It is supposed to be a small version of the "Worlds Longest Yard Sale". Well I hit one small section and it was pretty disappointing. I told my husband, I have never seen so much over-priced junk in all my life. I did however have a few finds that I felt were a bargain....My first purchase. These funky(you might say ugly) Yellow Box Suede Maryjane type shoes. Brand new with a price sticker of $37 on the box for $10. I know not a major bargain, but I am a real shoe person, and this brand shoe around here rarely goes on sale. Not to mention they have a little bit of heel and they are comfortable.
A couple of cute fabric remnants.
Thanks again for all of the prayers for my daughter. She is doing much better, but still experiencing being sick at her stomach without warning. She will be seeing the Dr tomorrow. She seems to be doing much better at handling stress, which is most likely what has triggered this. Please pray if it is God's will that her stomach will return to normal mode soon. She is most grateful for all of your prayers. Have a blessed week! Jackie

God is good all the time, and again I just want to say I am blessed beyond all I could think or ask. We have had several curves thrown at us this week, and God just keeps showing his faithfulness to us. Thanks again girls! Jackie

I love the glass ladle, much better than my plastic one. Can't wait for the opportunity to use them.
