Bubble Wrap

This bubble wrap is making me delirious_ I think it's starting to get to me.
I love bubble wrap... especially the BIG bubble's my favorite b/c I know it will take extra- care of my extra- special glass & such.
Can I just tell you though how good it feels to know that we can get rid of our boxes for once.
With being in ministry we've never known how long we would be somewhere.
So we left a lot of our things packed in boxes and if we unpacked them we saved the boxes in our attic. Because good boxes are hard to come by...we know this from experience. :)
So with each item that I wrap up and set into a box I'm hopeful that I won't have to do it again for awhile. But also every time I think I have something figured out_ or God's plan for us figured out_ He switches it up on me_ and every time I have to be O.K. with it. Because when I know He has spoken and said to do something and we follow...that's always the best place for us to be....

Anywho, this is what most days have consisted of make-up, braiding my hair, & sweat pants. However, this is what I did get dressed and wear one day..

Top_ Old Navy
Pants_ Old Navy
Shoes_ Target
Watch_ Target
Flower ring_ I made it

And on another note... after much wrestling_ trying to talk myself out of it_ making a ton of excuses_ I have decided to open a shop. I seriously have wanted to do this for soooo long but have been such a chicken. Yet as so many of you challenge me everyday and I read your words of encouragement_ I've decided I'm just going to go for it. I figure what's the worst that can happen... I fail_ no one buys anything, no one likes it.... but I have to try. And if I were to fail, at least I won't be hearing the chicken sound in my head..."bawk" "bawk"... you know? :)

So stay tuned_ within the next couple of days I will have it up and all ready with pictures and guess what? One of my necklaces is called...the "bubblegum necklace"... not sure if I was inspired by the bubble wrap or bubble gum cause' I like bubblegum too..either way though it's the bubble gum necklace. I'll also have headbands...because I adore them and can't quit thinking of ideas for them.

Happy Wednesday!
