This has a better week. Actually a little fun. I have been busy planning a booth at the Bridal Expo for this weekend for work. Pictures and lots of fun stuff to show you. Can't wait. Be looking for it soon.
So, today the kids had early dismissal. I decided to swing by Wal-Mart and get some glitter and card stock so we could make a valentines day project. The boys of course were too busy playing the ps3 so it was just me and the girls that worked on our fun girly stuff. The girls worked really hard and they had to get it just right. They look like masterpieces to me. They only saved me one heart to decorate. The rest are all what they came up with.
Did you know that WE are also masterpieces. God's masterpieces. God's well prepared masterpieces. That's so cool. God is so big.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
*workmanship- The Greek for this word sometimes has connotation of a "work of art"
*prepared in advance- God's sovereign purpose and planning
Here are a few other masterpieces I found this past week. It was a great week to do some thrift store shopping.
This is the first piece I found this weekend. It was at Goodwill. They had it laying on its side, using it to display some stuff, and said the leg was broken. It wasn't really broken. Some of the decorative stuff had broken off in front of the leg but all the pieces were taped to the bottom. I decided $40 was a fair price so I bought it. It found a home in the girls room. They are out of closet space so this will help a ton!
All the chairs except the tow on the ends came from garage sales this summer. I paid $1-$3 each for them. The black and white chairs on the ends I got at Pier One a few years ago. (not on sale) lol
I recovered most of the chairs and pained the black one at the end. It was Pepito pink when I got it.
The black table in the kitchen is now smaller. I closed the leaf on it and only used four chairs. It got a lot of use this week. We found this really cool cook book at the book store and have made about five recipes from it this week. The kids like to help cook. And the actually LOVE the food from this cookbook!
