Some projects

I have been horrible about blogging lately. Shame on me! However, I thought I might go ahead and share a few photos of two projects.  One that has already been completed and the other I am currently working on.

The one above is a gift I made for my sweet mother-in-law, Debbie, or as we like to call her in this house, "Nena". Nena leads the praise team at her church and is so kind-hearted and a truly great lady! So I wanted to give her something special and meaningful this past year for Christmas.

I always feel a bit self-conscious about gifting things that I have made. ("Is this good enough to give to someone I care about?" "I hope they like it!" "Maybe I should just go to Wal-Mart and buy something instead...") It never fails! Those thoughts always come knockin' and screamin' inside my brain!  

That being said, I actually really ended up liking the wall-hanging and I decided I'd like to try to make one for my home as well.
We have ABSOLUTELY no photos on our walls. We have a very old home with plastered walls and honestly, sometimes getting nails through that stuff is impossible! But, I am tired of not being able to walk through this house and see the beautiful faces of the people we love on a daily basis. I wanted a piece of (dare I say it?) "art" to compliment the photos that I WILL make my husband hang for me. (Thanks in advance, babe!) So here is what I came up with:

Now, keep in mind it isn't perfectly finished. I still need to drill holes at the top and add a pretty ribbon to hang it from, but I think it turned out pretty okay! Right?
And, I adore this saying because it's just so true! Can't wait to finish it up and get it up on the walls along with some pictures of the fam!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

Love Always,
Mommy (Ashlie)
