Ok, so if you came here looking for directions on making a silk purse, you just might be disappointed. I've been thinking about starting a blog for awhile and struggled with what it would be about. I've always liked do lots of different things and didn't have a focus. But today, I realized that IS my focus. The title is from the saying "You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear." I live my life MAKING silk purses from sow's ears. When I've wanted a new look for the front of my house, I took what looked like a pigsty and turned it into a welcoming retreat. When our grocery budget needed to be slashed, I started couponing and we started eating better than we had before. When the lamp shades my mom gave me didn't go with our decor, I figured out how to recover them. And (MOST IMPORTANTLY) when I realized that I was just a sow's ear in God's eyes, I gave my heart to Jesus Christ and became a silk purse (a daughter of God!)
Stay tuned for some fun tutorials, thoughts on being a mom and wife, and maybe even how to make a silk purse!
