Just a few things around the house

Just some places around my home.

My swing on the front porch.

I love to sit out here early in the morning and have coffee and read my devotions and late of the evening just relaxing.

Some cool chairs I bought at a junk store. Love them. These will go great with my new design I'm fixin to do next weekend.

Just an old window, that I painted to hung on the fence by my salon.

Being Creative

I fixed Shrimp Creole for supper tonite it was really tastey. Yum!! I use, onion, green peppers, celery, garlic, rice, tomatoes, salt, pepper to taste and the most important ingredient Shrimp.

This is a peek of the color I'm going to incorporate into my kitchen. I am so excited. I done all these things this afternoon. Since I"m not doing hair, I actually can do things I enjoy. Can't hardly wait to make ove my kitchen. Will post pictures later.

Nykke gave me this stool. I just love it. It is heavy. I thought it turned out really well too.

I finally redone some chairs Janna gave me. She was going to throw them away. But I had to repurpose them. I couldn't decide which color to go with.

I think they turned out pretty good. better than they were. And these chairs are cool, they fold up. Think I am going to use them in my kitchen.

excited to see the final result.


We had a super delicious easy meal last nite. It is my families favorite. I cook it once a week.

1 lb Hamburger meat

1 slice bread

1 egg

green peppers





Pototaes In bowl mix up hamburger meat, egg, and bread. Seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic, etc.) Pat out for Hamburger patties and Place on tin foil squares. In seperate bowl cut up fresh veggies and add on top of HB's you also can add bacon over top to give mor flavor. Bring the tin foil up to fold together and bake in oven at 350 degress for 45 minutes. You have your whole meal. DE LIS..
My life has calmed down a bit. I feel so much better. Have time to do things I need and want to do. God is so good to us. I fasted doing hair for only a week so far (which is very hard for me) And the Lord has already blessed me. He has showed me, If I will listen to him He will give me my hearts desire. And my hearts desire has already started coming forth. It started birthing Sunday evening in business meeting. I thank God for loving me so much.. He is so wonderful.
On a different note. I have re done some chairs i want to share. In the next couple of days I will do so. I do have my menus planned for the week.. yeah..

I've made a decision.. Thank you Father. It has been a hard one. And it is going to be hard telling my customers. I'm not doing my beauty salon business anymore. I've realized, it takes so much of my time. It controls me and I can't seem to control it. Now to send thank you notes to all my customers, and to personally tell some very faithful ones, that will probalby get upset with me. But I've got to take care of me and my family second, first God. This decision will allow me to do more with ministry and with my family. I will have to manage our spending closer. which I should have been doing so more. I am excited about this change. Ready to give God, my job, family and ministry 100%. Learning to say no.. Is going to be hard for me. But with the Lord's help I will continue on. Thank you Jesus for being so faithful and loving me.

I went back to work for the first time in

eight weeks. It was very busy, time went by fast. I even worked over 45 minutes without me even realizing it. But Glad to be home. I had to make three dresses, two white eyelet ones and a jack o latern one. The white ones are for a wedding. I want to package them in a nicer and cuter way. The white ones, i"m shipping in a pretty photo box wrapped in kraft paper. and I made some nice shipping labels with my name on it. SEW MUCH MICHELLE. I ran out of black ribbon to finish the jackolatern one. Maybe I can ship it tomorrow afternoon. I do e njoy making these dresses. I have all kinds of ideas to do to make these , just making the time to do it. I have some furiture I'm going to redo and I will post them later.

I go back to work on Tuesday. Which I'm nervous about. All the work.. the atomosphere.. I've enjoyed the break and still not all the way healed, but I know, I'm on the way to feeling so much better. I've been trying to figure out not to over book myself, my time.. When I start back to work, to just do hair one day a week. Plan a day to do children ministry. They have talked about paying me, but I don't see that anytime right now. Trusting the Lord in that. I do have a few dresses to make, have got to mail them tomorrow. I saw an old friend, she wants me to take picutes of her girls (senior pictures) which is exciting, but too, I don't want to get so busy again. Lord, help me to know how to say NO.. to help me stay focus on you and your will for my life. Lord, help me to exercise , now there is another subject.. I'm going to start exerciseing and eating healthy. I have to lose a little weight and tone up a good bit. I've never been like this and I don't wnat to get worse. Lord, help. help me to stay focused.. at my job, exercise, time, family, bills, meals, doing your work.
