Thanksgiving is over and so is the 3rd Annual Doty Kickball Game.

I came up with this 3 years ago to get us off the sofa and active after eating all the Thanksgiving food. And the kids have really got into it.

We even had Mom out there one year. As you look at the picture of the winning team, I have to tell you we ( the other side) was up by 11 at one time. Does that make it any better, I think not, maybe sadder. It is fun, we play to 20 and my brothers are the team captains. We draw names each year and you may be on the losing team each year. I found a old trophy at a yard sale last year and the winning team captain gets to have it in his house for the year. And oh, they are proud of it.

Black Friday
Crafty Friday
Need a book to jot down all those sizes and
your list of what you bought on Black
I make one each year, and it is a great keepsake.
Start off with a book, think outside the box.
I found this old saving book at a Antique store, a few years ago.

So you gut it and cover with paper. Inside and out.
Round your corners, where they need it and score your paper. Remember, don't put glue on the spine.

I scored my paper so it would fold up and added it with ribbon, instead of brads. Decorate it and you are ready to add your names and sizes.

Sorry for the side way pic. But this is my finished product for this year.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend and slow down and enjoy the season.

Christmas Card Photo Shoot

This was my idea.

I can just see these boys trying to trap Santa.

But I wasn't in love with these Pictures.

So now you just have to wait and see what I choose.

What is so funny, I had the whole house helping with this photo shoot.

Baking cookies, finding all the red shirts and Santa hats, Wrapping the box, and finding a forked stick to hold the box open.

Happy Tuesday!

We have had one more busy week.
3 day Revival, my dad is in the hospital, work, choir practice for Community Thanksgiving Program, and I hosted Bunco Last night.
I have had so many parties/ wedding this fall, that my hubs would scream if I spend more $ on decorations. So I can up with this.
I made the sweater pumpkins last year, cut of leaves from sheet music, I did buy brown paper from DG and made a brown paper runner. Place mats are sheet music with brown paper ruffles.
I think it was beautiful. So here is the Crafty Friday Entry today.
Just try it.
None of it took to long to complete and it is all disposable.

Everyone has a scrabble game. Personalize as place cards or just want Thanksgiving means to you.
Have a great Weekend.

Not your mamas broach.

Crafty Friday
Another bow?
Okay, we are going to make another bow and we are going to sew, just alittle.
Rip material in 4 inch by 12 inches strips.
Fold the material in half and cut slits, as shown in pic.
I sewed a loose seam to gather abit.
Rolled up the strip and whipped a few stitches to hold it together.
Wala a bow.

See how beautiful
But kinda country.
So use solid white or felt and make a broach out of it.
Now it is a bow
a broach for later.
2 gifts in one.

Did you enjoy the sunset last night. We call it "SKY BLUE PINK". ( the grandsons and I) But before I realized I had my camera and found a place to pull off and get a picture, it was almost gone. But it was beautiful. I had been grumbling about the fact that it is almost dark when I start home in the afternoons and God showed me the most delightful sunset to enjoy.

Today I am starting a 21 Day Challenge,

With Rhonna.

One of the First things I needed to do is come up with something I needed to change. The concept is that it takes 21 days to break a habit.

We all have 21 day to break a habit or start a habit.

But what can I do?

I have so much I need to improve.

I need to renew my spirit, my spiritual spirit.

I need to stop chewing gum.

I have a quick temper, sometimes.

I want to change a few things too.

I want to stop having hard feeling for my daughter.

I am not quick to forgive.

I get my feeling hurt too easy.

But I can only pick one.

I need to consider these and many more but now I am up against a deadline and need to make a decision.

So what will it be......

I suspect this will be the first of many 21 days challenges that I will try and complete.

But this time I am going to fill my spirit.

Day one

Today is the day to:
This means you need to:

envision how you want to feel on day 21.

act that way each day during your journey.

you will see the change

Does she know me or what
Linda made this jar for me for my Birthday.
My color is RED and I love jars.
It is full of all kind of goodies.
Of course I couldn't open it and plunder through it until I got home and took at few pictures.

When I opened it, I saw this, a flower for me!

She had placed everything in the jar, so perfect.
I had to pour it all out and take a look see.
I love it!
Oh, Linda
You made my day!
Thank you!
You do know me!
Do you see the yo yo lady bug?
