Jewish Menorah Mirrors 7 Feasts: Reflections Made On 2011’s Feast of Trumpets

Standard

Gone Fishin'

I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet, saying, ‘I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last,’ and, ‘What thou seest, write in a book and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.’ And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks One like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the breast with a golden girdle. ~ Revelation 1:10-13, KJV21

*5/8/2013 – I am absolutely flattered and excited by the attention this post has gotten but it is well over two years old now and I am still getting comments and questions, daily sometimes! As much as I would love to answer them all, the bulk have been answered in the comments section below and beyond that I simply cant answer them any further. Between school, a family, kids, new blog posts, and an editor position on a popular local blog, I no longer have the time- thanks for understanding guys*

I love cold process soap, don’t get me wrong… but there is something really nice about squeezing a little liquid soap on a bath pouf and lathering up! Liquid soap isn’t hard to master once you learn the basics, and once you have the basics down you can use soap calculators to design your own perfect recipe! I decided to share…

Over Fifty and Loving it!

Standard

Well I am over fifty and ready for a new life. I have done almost everything I dreamed of doing as a young girl. Who would have thought that I would began to dream again? So I went back to school, I started a few new hobbies and I even started a Youtube channel. It now has over two million views!

The best thing about being over fifty is that I am very settled, I am confident in my own skin and life isn’t scary anymore.

Meet my Waldorf Dolls

Standard

I started sewing when I was twelve years old. My next door neighbor, Miss Webster, gave me a pattern for Barbie Doll clothes. I made every thing by hand. When I was thirteen Miss Webster taught me how to use a sewing machine and I started making all of my clothes.  When it was time for me to go to High School I decided to attend a Vocational High School and concentrate on Trade Tailoring. I really enjoy the process of coming up with a design in my head and then sketching it on paper. The next step is how to get the design to become something that I can hold, touch, see and share.

I decided to major in Fashion Merchandising in college. I learned to make my own patterns and create beautiful clothes. Well, when I got married I put all my creativity aside,  got a regular job and kind of conformed to my surroundings. I thought I would never create again.

Two years ago I started sewing again, and writing again, and making hair products in my kitchen . My creative energy was returning with a vengeance. I always wanted to make dolls. So I did some research on how to make cloth dolls  and came across Waldorf Dolls. I gave it a try and fell in love with this beautiful craft. Forty years after I made my first doll dress I am making dolls and doll clothes again and loving it.

Here are a few of my creations
