I am not a good crafter. I did not get that bone when I was born. But what I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm

I call my students "chickens". So this year I made ornaments for them. Chicken ornaments, of course I spent two days on these, I hope they like them!

What a great idea. Next year if I have to make ornaments for the deacon's baskets, I'll try that one!

I will warn you, some of my posts can be very dark, as I am just out of an abusive marriage. I try not to be such a downer, but blogging is theraputic for me!

how cute! love them!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.
