I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day...


I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men

And the bells are ringing
Like a choir they're singing
In my heart I hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them?
Peace on earth, good will to men

Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men

Then ringing singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells they're ringing
Like a choir they're singing
And with our hearts we'll hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Do you hear the bells they're ringing?
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

-Casting Crowns


God bless you all on Christmas and may you find His salvation and peace for the new year! Thanks for you encouragement, love and support!!

Christmas Time's a-comin'......


I am going to have to start working on Christmas projects reaaaaally soon. Be on the look-out for my efforts here. :)

I am thinking of making some little candy holders for my Sunday school class. They like candy any way they can get it! Of course I'll be making clay ornaments for my family. I have a Christmas card idea floating around the 'ol noggin so I need to get to work on that.

I don't think I'll be doing quite as much this year b/c of the move. I hate not doing anything though. I miss crafting when I can't do it.

Good luck with all your projects out there!!

Some cute fall frolic...

I haven't worked on any cards or scrapbooks pages in soooo long. It's sad really. So here's a picture of my little cutie in place of a paper craft. Enjoy. :)

Sweet new images from MSB

Modern Sugar Blvd is gearing up for another new release. The good stuff never stops coming from the Blvd!

Here are two projects I made using two of the new images:The first is a snack cake holder/wrapper. It was very easy to make. I just modified the candy holder idea from SU. I thought this would make a cute gift for the kids in my Sunday School class. The second is a folder I made to hold my printed digital images. I have so many loose images that I needed a place to keep them all. Very handy. :)

New and exciting things are always happening on the Blvd. Check 'em out this weekend! :)

I am really late in posting this challenge for Modern Sugar Blvd! So sorry for that. The most recent challenge on the MSB blog was to use glitter. I mean really use glitter! :)

The image if from MSB of course. The patterned paper is DCWV. I really slapped the glitter on this card. I don't know how well you can tell in the photo, but it is covered!

I love sparkly anything so I loved this challenge! Be on the lookout for the next fun project over at MSB!!
