Pray for my momma-doe


Pray for my mom she has been in the states since Tuesday and could possibly be there for 2 more weeks.

In Christ alone


  In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

Thursday night get ready with me.


For my nails today I painted them orange for a pop of color.

Make Up!!!


for my eyes today I'll be using my essence love letters palette.

First apply the brown in the crease.
Next apply the cream color all over the lid followed by the peach color.
Next I add the black in the outer crease for a little definition.
I then took my gray essence liner and put a thin line on my lash line.
For my mascara I took the wand and lightly wiped it with a tissue and the applied it.(this ensures a natural eye lash)


First I applied my concealer. I have a new better one by loreal!

When u apply it u should look like this:
Under nose,under eyes, in brow bone, and on blemishes.

After patting it in I applied my powder.
Next comes blush!

I mixed all colors in my usual palette.
I applied it on the apples of the cheeks.

LIPS: apply your favorite lip color.
Mine is pink!
And that's the makeup!

It basically speaks for itself!
Black skirt with big flowers.
A dainty little necklace!!!

And now HAIR:

All I did was pinned a section of hair behind my ear and that's it!!!!!

Super cute easy Tote.


To start this classic tote you will want to gather you equipment: material, pins, pen, sewing machine, and steady hands.
I got my cute material from IKEA.
I cut mine to the width I want and length wich was 15 1/4 x 19" u need 2. Of these.
I used this folder to calculate how big I needed.

I took some material 7 1/2 x 8" and made it into a pocket by folding each side and the corners I folded into the sides.
I pinned that and sewed it into the white side of 1 of the fabric sides ( since I want it on the inside of my purse)
I used the left over material for my straps and measured it to 4" so my straps(folded over) would be 2"
Next I made a solid line and cut it.

I folded it over even and sewed it inside out.
I turned the straps right side out.
I folded the ends in 1/4" and pinned
I sewed 3 rows on the strap.

Next I took each half of the purse body and pinned and sewed them.
I took the bottoms and sewed across these triangles and cut the excess off.
I then sewed the straps on at 3 1/2 inches from the side seam and 3" down
I gave them a box stitch (above)
I stitches mine in the outside (below)
And that's how you do it super simple... Super quick!;)
