I have entered the world of blogging! My purpose? To stay connected to friends and family and invite you into my world. A world filled with fun, tears, laughter, excitement, elation, disappointment and all the blessings of being a mother and wife.

My sweet friend Heidi gave me these three snowflakes covered in Christmas sheet music. She didn't figure she would use them and thought I would enjoy them, she was right!

I edged them in silver glass glitter and added glittery black chipboard letters to spell JOY. They hang from red baker's twine by mini silver library clips.

I've discovered that JOY is my favorite of the advent season. JOY hasn't always been a part of my daily life, although I am blessed beyond measure, JOY (unfortunately) is not my natural starting point. I wish it was. Over the years I have learned to be Joyous and to live into the JOY Christ has for me.


My banner makes me happy for the craftiness of it but it serves as a wonderful reminder to take time to be JOYOUS. To stop in this busy season to remember why we celebrate and to be thankful for all that we already have.
