Mother's Day Giveaway!

I want to encourage all mothers to make sure they don't sacrifice themselves for their families. Sometimes, you need to take care of yourself, too!

Because mothers need to take care of themselves, too, I'm giving away a few things that help me take care of myself. Staying hydrated is a must for mothers, so a fruit infuser bottle helps make that enjoyable. A good cup of tea helps to relax. Journaling your thoughts help you clear your mind. Coloring can bring peace. And the lip balm--because it is my favorite and I wanted to share something fun!

Enter via the rafflecopter below. Prize will only be shipped within the states.

Throw Back Thursday

I've been studying in Deuteronomy lately and this old post caught my attention again.

Providing Clothing

Proverbs 31:13
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

After going through the clothes for this spring/summer, three of my girls were still short on pajamas. I figured I would just make some. Just a few days later, we were given some bedding which happened to have some extra queen size pillow cases that didn't match other bedding. I use them to make pillow case dresses. I made two different styles as I used what I had on hand. I then took some material and made a "pillowcase" to make a third pillowcase dress. I added some lace to the bottom to make it a little longer.

Pillowcase dress made using bias tape and elastic.

"Pillowcase" dress using material, lace, bias tape, and elastic.

Pillowcase dress used by making a casing and using ribbon ties.

For all three of these it cost me nothing but my time which was maybe an hour combined to make all of them.
