Staying Colorful



My Family and I stood and appreciated a rainbow from our back deck the other night. As we talked about the many shades of color and God's never ending promise, I wanted to take those colors and put them somewhere, maybe in a jar or a Tupperware container so that on blue, and sad days I could open up that container and add some happy color!
I think as we (here in the frigid Midwest anyway) face another winter, another season of short bleak days, long frigid nights, punctuated with bone-chilling winds, and blizzards, we already start thinking of ways to spend those days. for me it's scrap booking, doing preschool with 'Little Blue' sewing (of course), reading good books.
Here are some things that can rob the color out of any day, (If I allow it too!!)
  • When the kids wake up before me and super grumpy!
  • Unexpected bills
  • When I allow my house to get DIRTY
  • Grocery shopping
Can you relate to any of these?? :)

Here are some things that bring The COLOR into my Days

Call me weird, but my heart was pounding as I made these cute little shoes!!
