I am so excited, as this is my first post for the blog! I love Pintrest and all the grand ideas it gives for me for. . . well everything!
One of my favorite pins has been the glass blocks. I have made a few in the past with images on them. I founds some that had just a letter and I thought that they looked so elegant. I had a wedding coming up and decided that I should make them something. I looked at several ideas, chose one, then changed my mind, chose another, and then changed my mind again. Finally, I made a decision. Below is the glass block that gave me my inspiration.

We love to play games as a family at our house. My husband and I are really trying to make it more of a regular occurrence! So, our goal is to make one of the weekend nights a Family Game Night. This particular night we were just playing Skip Bo. We also love to play strategy games like Settles of Catan, Hunters and Gatherers, Flux, and Ticket to Ride - just to name a few.For these pictures I decided to use a sketch from the Sketches In Thyme blog.

Colorbok: Signature Paper - Hopscotch paper stack
Family Album Cricut Cartridge: title
Designers Calendar Cartridge: dice
We are now into August and I have been thinking a lot about the fact that school is coming. I have been homeschooling my daughter for the past year and a half. She is now going to go to a Christian school in the fall for junior high. I can't believe that she is in 7th grade already! I am both sad for me and excited for her. One of my favorite things about homeschooling, besides having my daughter home with me everyday, was using my Happy Planner for lesson planning. I love my lists and seeing my week planned out on paper. So, I was thinking through how to make a good use of my Happy Planner this coming year. I a blog post on how to set up a War Binder. I looked into this War binder thing a little more closely and decided that that is exactly what I wanted to do with my Planner. I spent a lot of time looking around on FB and Pinterest to get ideas and eventually just decided that I just needed to start it. I have struggled with making time for Bible Study and prayer in the busy day…
