I love to create, be a mom, a wife, a teacher, and a Jesus follower. These are just some of the musings about who I am!

Arms full of Song

So, I have this friend.  She has a blog.  It is amazing.  I love to read it.  You know, the type of thing that you read and then think, "why didn't I try and spend more time with this person when I had the chance?"  Yeah, that type of blog. 

She is a creative, Godly mom of 5 kiddos.  One of those children she is 17 days away from meeting.  Well, maybe 18 by the time the travel is all done, but she's close!  And I am so incredibly excited for her and her family. 

So, I got to thinking...I should count down with her, committing to pray along the way!  I let my creative juices flow, and the result is below. 

Weird, right?  I have hung NOTHING up in my living room, and now I have a countdown chain and a chalkboard. 

Yes sir!  I made the chain out of vintage fabric scraps and hot glue.  Then I nailed it to the wall.  Yes, nails.  (Jason thinks I'm crazy)  I grabbed a wooden frame, spray painted it yellow, then cut a piece of cardboard to size and sprayed it with chalkboard paint.  (I'll switch it to wood later)

Wa-la!  Our first decoration. 

Ashley, only 17 more days until your arms are full of Song!  Oh the joy that awaits.
