About Me

My photo
Hi! Thanks for taking time to look at my site. My name is Kristen and I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am dedicated to sharing the Bible's message of hope and peace. I am married and have two great kids, Gabriel-10 and Abby Lynne-3. I don't have a lot of spare time, but when I do I like to try my hand at being creative. It is a form of relaxation and therapy for me. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing and cardmaking, although I don't sew very much anymore. Here I'd like to share some of my accomplishments when I have a chance. I am open to comments, ideas and creative help. :)Thanks for spending some time with me.

I never win anything, so when I went on a blog hop I didn't really expect anything out of it except for some good ideas. Guess what??  I won a $5 certificate from Deedee Digis!!!  Thanks Deedee!! I can't wait to use my new images :)

Happy Sunday :)

Hi everyone! Boy did it cool down today! Yesterday was nice and warm and sunshiney. Today is quite cooler and overcast. Today I have a card that I made for a dear friend. The digi was a freebie, I must apologise to the artist-I couldn't find it in my computer again to tell you who drew it.  I used assorted papers and the flowers and "pearls" are handmade.

NC Mountains

A couple of weeks ago we decided to take the kids on a weekend ride to the mountains. We had a great time. Left Friday after I got off work and spent the night about 30 minutes from our destination. Then got up Sat morning and had breakfast. Spent the rest of the day relaxing and enjoying the beauty.
We decided to explore  a well know cavern here in NC. Linville Cavern was amazing! Here are a few pics of what we saw...
                                                                                                       drip pools
The Eastern Pipistrelle Bat hibernates in the caves and we were fortunate enough to have chosen a month in which they are there. They were so tiny with thier little wings all folded up under them. About the size of a small to medium egg.
                   The different rock formation were amazing and amazingly difficult to photograph and do them justice.
                                                                       After the cavern, we mined for "gems"!
Gabriel loved this bridge over the train track. There was also a model train store nearby that he explored with as much excitement as the cavern! While we were in the store a train passed under the bridge. Gabe almost missed it! This little abandoned nest was in a tree at eye level with us on top of the bridge.
As we began our journey home we spotted signs to a state park area. After quite a bit of riding we found a lovely Camel-back bridge and river. As beautiful as the scene was, it was a little sad too. The water level was horribly low :(
                                                   It felt as if you could almost reach out and just touch the clouds!
Thanks for taking a few minutes to enjoy the wonders of this beautiful earth with me. What a breathtaking part of creation we got to see on this trip!

Happy Monday!

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a pleasant Monday.  I can't really complain about mine, it was just really, really looonng. :) Anyway, I had a few minutes and thought I put up some of the little flowers I have been making. Hope you enjoy.....

Hi! I bet you thought I had dissapeared, never to be heard from again! I don't blame you, I'd have thought the same thing :) Anyway, I've been really, really down lately and creatively BLOCKED. Since I couldn't wrap my mind around a finished card, I have mostly been coloring digis and playing around with some crochet flowers. Today I finally turned out a card! I am particularly proud of my coloring on this one, I think this is probably my best so far. I found a tutorial for this card at http://www.lapashe.com/. It is super easy. My digi is by Mo's Digital Pencil, the papers are assorted and the silver bead accents are ones I made with my hot glue gun and silver alcohol ink. I hope you like!!
