Let's talk.
What are you doing with your spare time?
What do you have that can be used?
What are your passions?
What talents do you have?

What would you do if you had 30 days to do whatever you wanted?
What could you share?
Use what you have.
What do you have that could benefit someone else?
Have you answered any of these questions?

Easter is a time of rebirth, and renewal.
A time of commitment....and change.
We make a decision.
A decision to change.
1John 1:9 says If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
We accept the fact that Jesus died as the sacrificial lamb, on the cross, for our sins. We ask Him to reside in our hearts as our Lord and Savior.
We live as Christ lived....with a servants heart, filled with grace and mercy toward others...keeping our eyes heavenward, with the hope for eternal life with Jesus Christ.

What can we do to serve?
Are there needs in your community, or church?
Do you like to cook, or bake for others?
Do you like writing encouraging cards, or letters?
How about taking someone shopping, or to a doctor appointment, or even just for a walk?
Maybe spend an evening playing cards with a lonely person.
Visit a nursing home, or hospital.

Pray about it, and ask God to use you in a ministry where your gifts and talents would best be used.

Step out of your comfort zone, and volunteer for something that you have never done before.

If nothing else, be a prayer warrior.
Pray for your family and friends, or community.

It is my fervent expectation that your Easter season is filled with joy, and a longing in your heart for a renewed relationship with Jesus our Savior.

Dollhouse obsession

This dollhouse hobby has become an obsession!
It's kind of crazy, but so fun.
There are quite a few people that are into this...actually, there are ALOT of people that are doing this!!
Some of the houses I've seen online are unbelievably beautiful!! It's amazing how much they look like "real" houses!!
I'm having fun chatting with Amy Chalmers about dollhouse miniatures. Amy has given me lots of information as to where I can find items to fill my house.
We both use The Big Book of a Miniature House by Lea Frisoni for making furniture, and fun pieces to decorate with.

My dollhouse is much like my real home....eclectic.  Nothing theme.
If I do another house, I hope I do a better job of putting it together with a little more of a theme from room to room.

I have some things ordered to help make it look filled up.
Amy's dollhouse looks so nice, because every nook and cranny has something in it.
Plus, her house is done all in French decor and is just gorgeous!!
There's even beautiful woodwork around doorways, and windows adding to the authenticity of the look.

I was going for an old cottage look...
Well, I got the "old" part right. lol

I worked on window coverings, and cornice pieces yesterday.
That really helped to make it look more homey in here.
Cutting cubes of French soap for the sinks added some cuteness to the bath and kitchen.
The mister even carved out a sweet, primitive little rolling pin for the kitchen sink.

This bed is the first piece of furniture I made from the book by Lea.
The slanted ceilings remind me of our attic bedrooms here at our cottage.

This is the other bed made from Lea's book.

This will be the garden room.
Right now it seems to be a catch-all room.
The screen door was made from some wood scraps my friend Gisele gave me, along with the little wood box that the bunny is sitting in.
Thank you for stopping by my tiny house.
Have a great weekend.
Big Hugs.
