Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Necessity is the mother of invention...

Ok, so the clips, hair clips are taking over our home.  So, an idea that I had seen, I don't know, some time in the past, resurfaced and we started creating!  My mother's obsession with painting and her collection of picture frames was the spring board for the clip collection... turned into art! 

Want one of your own?  Take a picture frame, some snazzy ribbon and a staple gun.  You can figure out the rest.  Hang it on the wall and you got yourself a clip collector!

We hung the headbands from the towel rod above the frame.  Can I just tell you that this is not all of the supplies in our home!!!  We keep the less-liked, less-used stuff under the sink.

The color coded touch belongs to Beti!
