New Crosses

So I've been a single wife this weekend - the Husband has gone on a fishing trip. I've been able to get a lot of things done in his absence. : )  Check out my new crosses!

I think this one is my favorite out of this group. I stained the larger cross and wrapped the smaller one in yarn.

This one didn't turn out very good. I used gold leafing on the larger cross, and it didn't come out very smooth. Maybe I'll try again one day. I think the colors look good together though! : )

Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters by James Stuart Bell

Bethany House supplied me with a copy of Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters. This book is very interesting. Compiled of stories of encounters with angels and demons, near-death experiences, and incredible rescues, this book will definitely spike your interest.

I must admit, though, I haven't finished it yet..... The stories are definitely interesting, but after a while they all begin to sound the same. Some of these stories are amazing stories to read about, but then others are more of life changing revelations. I personally didn't consider them a supernatural event, but I'm sure to that person it was a miracle.

The book is a good one to read, but for me it's a good one to read over time, not all at once.

Newest Handmade Crosses

I have finished by first completely handmade wooden crosses!! Except for making the wood, the paper, or the embellishments, I did cut out the cross on my new machine, picked out the paper and wood stain, and arranged the flowers! Yea, I'm pretty proud of myself.... : )

Some of the edges may not be exactly even, but that's all part of it being handmade! This yellow one is definitely becoming my favorite one! I love the rustic country feel to it. Don't you?

Or maybe you like this bright cheery one! I do like this one too. Green has always been my favorite color.

Tell me what you think! I would love to hear your comments. What kind of cross would you like in your home?

Moment of Truth

It's time for what we've all been waiting.

The answer to the question we've all been asking ourselves...

Does Mrs. McCann really know how to use this machine The Husband surprised her with?

eh... this one needs a little work...

This one is a little bit better... I guess.. : )
And then...

I broke it. I guess I'll be making a trip to Lowe's soon. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon and won't ruin a bunch of wood or blades.

Hello Again

Wow. It's been a long time since I've written anything... I should definitely get back in to the swing of things!! So what's been going on? Well, we have 3 new puppies, in addition to our 3 older puppies, in addition to our 3 adult dogs. The names: Slug (female), Bunctious (female), and Basco (male). Cute aren't they?!

I'm also very excited to announce that The Husband has bought me a new machine!!

That's right. This crafting business is about to get serious....  : )

I've also been working on a few new crosses...  They're still in progress.

And reading a few free books thanks to Bethany Publishing and Dee Henderson! I love free books. So you'll be seeing a few reviews soon.

What's going on in your neck of the woods?
