2013 – Learning New Things

2013 will be the year that I learn new crafts and actually make them! Well…that was my thought 5 minutes ago, but then it dawned on my that 2013 will be the year that I will have two babies under the age of 2 and a pre-teen…so I might learn something new in 2013 and I might now – how is that for a resolution?

This past weekend I created a craft for the youth group at my church to use for their Birthday Party for Jesus. I found such peace in madness of life by taking time to create something.
