Then I just sewed the seams down. Instead of hanging them vertical which would not work since my windows are bigger then 40" and I have two of them. I hung them horizontal so that they could work as valances, I would have needed many more since the curtains width was not very big but the length was great. Since they are valances you don't need curtain length so it worked perfect although the print is not horizontal. I think this is a easy, cheap solution to getting valances. So many valances are not as cute, but curtains are. In this case you could almost buy one long panel and make your valances to suit your window. Oh and I am not much of a sewer at all this is just a straight line. You could even use a glue gun to make hem.

Keep Lauren in your prayers she has had some abnormal iron levels for the past 6 months. We have had her tested several times despite her being on vitamins it is still low. They also tested her for some genetic iron issues but all came back negative. I should hear something soon about this weeks test. I can't handle any more blood tests they have really hurt her. She has small veins and they have really poked her a ton. Very hard to watch. Thanks so much!!

I really like this look. It has the whites but also a little color. I really like white cabinets with dark wood floors. That is one of my favorite kitchen looks.

I needed something in this little area between my dinning room and kitchen. It is the butlers pantry what ever you need that for,lol. My house did not not have one built in but it was a option. We have lived in our house for over two years and I have not found anything that would go. I was at my favorite antique mall and I came across this. I though I was going to have to paint it but I cleaned it all up and used a stain to fill in scratches. It ended up looking really nice, and I love the color. So for now I think I am going to keep the nice wood color. It might change in the future. I added a few things inside to decorate it but that might change too. Just wanted to share my great find.

Have a good Wednesday. I am still recovering from yesterday. I went to school to help Jaden's class for a while. I had to get there early to take pictures. I had a whole list of staff for the yearbook. I went and helped Jaden's teacher with the computer area. I take six kids at a time and then bring each one over separately to test them on flash cards. When I was done I went back to finding more staff, and then taking candid's of each grade level. It was a great workout walking around the school. I can't be heavily involved in the PTO yet so I do yearbook and I really like it. It is one time of year that I am really busy and that is it. In a couple years maybe I can do more. Then I ate lunch with Jaden. One of the lunch aide's came up to me and said what a good kid he is. Hearing stuff like that makes you realize all your parenting is paying off.

Oh my gosh my other biggie. Why do I care so much about this one??? Why do I care if someone doesn't seem to like me? When I feel like God is number one in my life and the world doesn't get to me this one is easy. The christian life is not always a easy one. If I am struggling though I hate this one I feel rejected.
This one too. I hate conflict. We all have said things we wish we wouldn't have. Thank God for forgiveness. If someone is your friend they forgive and love like it never happened.
I have been very open here with my struggles but my desire is not to hide behind a mask like I am perfect or have it all figured out and together. Each day I try to live life through God's eyes and although I fail miserable at times this book is really helping me. I am feeling secure in the person God made me. Knowing I have a bigger purpose to fill, knowing that fiery darts to the heart are just the enemies way of making me feel insecure so I don't follow God's will. I am so happy she wrote this book it makes me realize this is often a untalked about topic that so many of us struggle with.
