Mission Accomplished!!!

I wrote a post in January about my new year’s resolution that I will teach myself how to crochet, but my mom told me that I should learn how to knit first. So I took her advice and bought a book for beginners and the things I needed to get started. Every day and night I would take my time and practice. It's really relaxing, comfortable and fun, even if I didn't know what I was doing! When I first started knitting I kept dropping stitches and by the time I was finished with the practice piece it had a lot of runs in it lol. I kept going and didn't stop practicing. Once I got really good at it my work started looking like a master pieces. I really bought the best book on how to knit which was easy to follow. A lot of times you can buy teaching books that are really hard to understand. Because they are so difficult you either want to quit or put things on hold for a long time. In my case I didn't have that problem, thank you Lord!  Once I completed the entire lesson in the book they had a few projects for beginners. I choose to make a scarf using turquoise acrylic yarn, I love that color.  It took me about
two weeks to finish. I really wanted to take my time and make sure that I did not drop any stitches  and I didn't! My scarf is about 52 inches long. I'm so excited that I knitted my first SCARF! Now I'm making a hat for my mom; her favorite color is purple.  Down the line I will teach myself how to crochet, but for now I will stick with knitting and continue making hats and scarfs to sell in my shop for the winter.

I also started going back to school for my bachelor’s last month!!!

Have you started working on your list of things you want to accomplish in 2013? If so share with....

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.

I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139: 14

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.

In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
