At the beginning of the school year we began Daniel (a Beth Moore study) and the boys did amazing going through the Bible study. We began James and decided we'd complete all 5 levels of her study to include memorizing the book of James over the next five months. We'll be finished with James, Mercy Triumphs in another couple of weeks and we'll move right into the book of Esther (the boys decided on doing this study instead of Jesus, the One and Only next). Now, Mom has joined us in our studies too.
I have wanted a Silhouette Cameo for along time - just in private because I didn't think I'd ever move beyond wanting to really would like - for scrapbooking and card making, since I've begun making cards again.
Another tool for scrapbooking that I'd love is the Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch. This would take some getting used to, learning to write on the tablet, but I could use my own handwriting to write on photos, create brushes, and word art. I'd like to see what I can come up with for my digital pages.
A bunch of Shea Cashmere by Bath and Body Works. It's the only thing that works on my dry skin. And I just looked and they don't have my favorite hand soap, bummer!
I would like Karen Russell's A Photographer's Workshop. There are limited seats and they sell fast. I would love to learn from her how to take pictures and take pictures in manual.
I would like this lampshade, custom order, for our bedroom.
All of these 'gifts' would be awesome as Christmas gifts too...hint hint!
It has been along time coming that I would switch to an iphone. We didn't buy the new 6's but did get the 5S. While I treat it much like my other flip phone it is really nice to search for something when I'm out and about and most of all I love taking photos with it and can't wait to load up some photo app's.
We have needed a bunch of little things taken care of around the house and Jeff has been able to take some time on weekends to make them happen: put up a new cabinet in the boys' bathroom, door knobs, change light bulbs, towel racks and new shelves in Mom's room, put up a new television, hang a quilt holder in Mom's room, other little stuff here and there. It's been wonderful to get those things done.
