A Word to the Wise Wednesday

I certainly don't have much wisdom of my own to share and I don't want the title for today to come across in a proud way. Everything I'm sharing is ideas from others. I heard someone once say, "If you don't have brains borrow them; just be careful where you get them." :) With that said, here a some clever ideas...

Have you made this wreath yet? Here's a picture of mine. I made it in two consecutive nights while listening to a preaching service on the web. Anyone can make this! Cut and poke - that's the talent it takes to make it! It took just under a yard of fabric to cover the wreath form and make it full and fluffy looking. You could make a round wreath in the spring with pastel colors, or red, white, and blue in July. Cute, cute, cute!

Some Christians are like porcupines - they have a lot of good points and are hard to get close to!

My dad told me about a recent good idea my mom had. She had a nice tablecloth that was a bit worn, but she loved it. It wasn't good enough to use as a tablecloth anymore, so she cut it into squares and made napkins out of it. I love that idea because I have a beautiful tablecloth that got stained. It's so pretty I couldn't make myself get rid of it, but I never use it. Now I have a plan! If you'd like to do that and you're not sure how to go about it, go here for a good tutorial. Thanks for the great idea, Mom, and Happy Birthday!

Did you know that Crayola makes bathtub crayons? Your kids can write on the bathtub and have all kinds of fun, but I recently read about a husband and wife using the crayons to leave notes for each other in the shower! With Valentine's Day approaching I think that's a great way to be creative!

I'm always looking for a good book to read. At our missions conference our preacher, J.B. Godfrey mentioned the book, The Triumph of John and Betty Stam. I will be on the lookout for this in our library. If they don't have it I see that Amazon has copies as low as $6.

How about you? Come across any good ideas, books or new products?

'Til next time...

I love your wreath!

You can also write on your mirrors with comes right off with Windex. Maybe not such a hot idea for children...but it works for love notes and Bible verses. =)
