3 friends are heading out of the country this year. After coming back from Nigeria after teaching over there for 2 years, I wanted to give them a going away gift that:
1. Would not be a hassle to pack
2. Would be meaningful
I decided to put together a necklace containing 4 Bible verses that are very helpful when going to an unfamiliar place.
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid? ——Psalm 27:1
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. —-Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. —-Proverbs 16:9
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. —-Psalm 91:11
I also made each one of them an infinity scarf with their favorite verse on it. I bought 1 1/2 yards of fabric and screen printed the verse and the birds onto both sides of the scarf.
I am really satisfied with the results of both projects. It was great giving the gifts to each of the lovely ladies that are heading out into the world. They truly will be missed by many, but will have so many wonderful adventures and grow more and more as godly women.
Just a 2 photos of dresses I designed for weddings. The blue dress was made out of the wedding uniform fabric. The dark purple dress was not made for that particular wedding, but I designed it in the fall and wasn’t able to wear it until the summer in the States. It fits me like a glove and I LOVE it!!
Project #1 for the summer of 2014! I bought this wooden chair from the thrift store over Christmas Break and wanted to paint and reupholster it. The chair was only $7!! I waited until this summer because I also wanted some Nigerian fabric to use.
Picture 1 is after the first coat of spray paint and picture 2 is the finished product. I am on the look out for at least 1 more chair, but 3 is my hope.
Fabric: N 162 or $1 (used less than 2 feet)
Spray Paint : $3.37

Happy Father’s Day to this lovable scamp! He thinks he’s the most “normal” of us all… Boy is he wrong. ;)
