recent features

Etsy Treasuries can be such a fun way to shop. 
It's like having your own clothing/home/seasonal/etc stylists right at your fingertips!  Items are grouped together by theme and you could get lost in all the fun arenas people put together.  But if you looking for something specific, treasuries can also help narrow down the great wide world that is Etsy.

They're also a lot of fun to create too!

Behind the Moon Beadworks (btmbeadworks on Etsy) was given some recent features as you can see below.

Green and Yellow Jewelry

Inspiring , beautiful & unique!

If you haven't perused an Etsy Treasury yet, I encourage you to give them a try.  Maybe even create one yourself!

speak to me | when you need some encouragement

Have you ever had a period in your life where you are being extremely blessed but the actual walking through the blessings can be a bit of a challenge?
That is where I find myself these last few weeks. My little family is undergoing a lot of changes in a short period of time...aka blessings ;)
But as we try to adjust to all these changes there have still been frayed nerves, time crunches, and a few tears.  New school, new routines, unstable income, building projects, etc, etc.  Doesn't sound too bad right?  Lord knows our struggles could be so much worse and I am very thankful that they are not.  But still.  When you're in the midst of any struggle, you can grow weary and overwhelmed.

So I find myself in need of a little encouragement today and thought you might be too ;)  Here are some inspirations from my "Speak to Me" and "Faith" boards on Pinterest.






Phew, that helped!  Just reading through these has helped me to re-focus and re-energize.
Now to go be the mother and wife my family needs during this collective growing season!

goodbye summer

From sweltering in June to wearing a jacket in August.  From days of overloaded schedules to days where you don't even look at the clock because time simply doesn't matter.  From the burden of big decisions and change to peace in the knowledge that God is working all things for our good.

2014 was the summer of extremes.

The (somewhat) short of it...

Hiked the nestled and windy trials that led to the glorious splendor that is Hocking Hills, Oh.

Began a Paleo diet and finally began to lose weight and not be exhausted ALL the time.

Lounged on the beach with our toes in the sand and looked on as our boys splashed and giggled and made memories that they (and us) will cherish.

Watched my boys stretch out of their comfort zones and learn something new...Tae Kwon Do.  Boy do I love watching them practice their blocks and kicks.  The spark of confidence has found them :)

Nurtured seedlings into a bountiful garden.  Well ok, maybe not all of it was bountiful but zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers for sure!

Tried our hands at canning...homemade salsa, pepper relish, and pickles.

Celebrated the gift of family and the ties that bind us to our roots no matter time or distance.

Hubsy was finally able to quite his day job after 3 years of building his own business (a lot of blood sweat and tears on both our parts). Woohoo!

Kiddos began attending a new school.  Scary for L.  Total excitement for E.  I love how they have their own unique personalities.

Marveled at the artistry of our creator that is oh so evident in the sunsets we are treated to every night.  Love our new house/location.  The sky is just so HUGE.

And now for the pics...
