Falling in Love with Jesus

Books, Books, and more Books…

Yea, We got loads. Ok backing up a bit. Really I need to tell you, I started reading a book back in 2009, I was released and never got to finish it. I know I could have taken it with me like others have done… But I started on this relationship with Jesus, and it needed to say in there, where it was and help another life transform. Read my testimony or back posts on that subject. Needless to say. I want to finish reading it. It was, Your single treasure by: Rick Stedman. The other was falling in Love with Jesus By: Dee Brestin and Kathy Troccoli.
Well I found this site (Swaptree.com) years ago and it went offline for a time. I have found it again!!! It is a book swap. Now called Paperbackswap
I do lots with recycling, love our planet, and thank God for allowing me the time I have every day! Recycling helps me to be a good steward of what I feel blessed to have. After you read them, books just sit…except the Bible. So I am adding a widget to the website that I use. As well as you can click the link above. If you join friend me there, and if you think of it in your sign in tell them I referred you. You will get $3.00 credit and I get a bonus too.  I’m not sure maybe I get a free book. Please comment, ask questions, like the post, or I never know you came. Here is the widget… somewhere in the sidelines of this post. Ok so the widget is not working. The link above should work.

Chair Cushions DIY

Hello everyone! Today I was really busy making new cushions for the kitchen chairs.

First step was to get some of packing paper that came with some books in the mail.  It was study and so I put it on the seat and went around the bottom of the chair with a pencil to trace and then cut out the shape. It fit so then I cut four of these out of some foam I had salvaged from an unstained or soiled couch cushion. Which I had washed and dried so it was ready to go. Next  it was time to cut out heavy weight material that I had picked because of the vibrant pattern. This way accidental spills wont be so noticeable.

I also cut out two strips about 1 1/2 in wide the length of which would go around the seat cushion, plus cut some extra about 10-12 inches for the ties to hold the cushion in place.  This is what allows the thickness to to be more even and then once I had the strips pinned in place. sorry no pictures of the sewing part I was so into it I just went with it. Right sides together you start by sewing one strip in place all the way around the top part of cushion. Do the same for the bottom part of cushion however leave open the back part of the cushion so that you can put in the foam.Once the foam is in you can move it around to fit into the edges, Now grab  the extra 10-12 inch piece fold in half right sides together.  Next put a safety pin into one end and draw it so it is right side out an you will have a nice tie. Fold it in half  and pin into that open seam one on each side of the open seam. Now sew up your seams and tie them on.
As I was tying them on she was making herself comfortable. That is my girl Gorda she is always looking for ways to be involved with me.
God’s grace, peace, light, and love to you always. In Jesus’ service Doreen✞ ✞ ✞

Mother’s day outfit

04132013 016

This is what happened to the pretty outfit I got for Mother’s Day. It has i sleeveless shift dress with a same length jacket. (Church is always cold.) Pointing no fingers at the landlords cousin who had to use that expanding caulk to fill the vent he put in my dryer room. When and how isn’t the problem getting it out was. So Here goes…

Dryel solvent… nope… Goo Gone… nope…Amway solvent(not pictured) but, nope anyway…

Hmmmmm not one to give up so away I went. Under the bed to storage there for wonder under fusible webbing, glittler puff paint, scissors, and the Be Dazzler!!!


Well I decided the mini one would work best for this application. With the strip of fabric from a skirt I shortened I got a great paisley piece. With the left over I made a scarf to go along with it. I can wear this as a more fancy or played down. The dress I shortened can be worn under for more summer day. Scarf is interchangeable for both dresses and works well with lots of my wardrobe. Now to press it all and get it ready for Mother’s day service.


I hope and pray in Jesus’ name if you have a mom or if you love a mom that you let them know. One day from the next we are not guaranteed tomorrow. I was blessed by being able to tell my mom I loved her, to bless her and tell her how beautiful she is and always will be to me. I have been on cloud nine ever since. Thanks be to God!!!

God’s grace, peace, light, and love always Doreen
