I have thought about what I'd like to see different in my life for 2013. I tend to be (am) a procrastinator. I'm not proud of that. I want to be the best me that I can be. So some changes need to take place. This requires discipline (another one of my weak points). So I'm praying for God's strength to tackle these areas that need to change. So here's to 2013!! Happy New Year!

One of my patients gave me this beautiful gift this week. She made it. I've received several other gifts but this one is very special. I work as a nurse for a family doctor and I give my all to each patient. Seeing this gift just made my day. It actually felt like it was a personal gift from God Himself. I don't know why, but it did. So I thought I would share it with you.

|Isn't she beautiful!|
|Love the wings!|

I've been wanting to make something "crafty" for Christmas, but as usual time is always a factor (and energy). I was in the stamping section at Michael's and saw a nice set of alphabet stamps. Then it occurred to me. I could stamp a runner or pillow instead of stitching them and be done a lot quicker! Instead of sewing I would just rip the edges which would give it the "rustic" look. And that's what I did and it turned out quite nice.
I used white thread and randomly stiched white flakes above the phrase. I used a dissolvable pen to draw a line for the letters and to make the stars.
This is the finished product. Little work and a good feeling of accomplishment!
A little vignette that I put together. I've already changed it a bit but am too lazy to take a picture.
