WELCOME! We are so
glad you are here!

Most women don’t have supportive Christian women in their lives mentoring them.

We spur women on with the Word of God so that we can approach the Bible with confidence, share Jesus with grace, and speak chatter that matters in a noisy world.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on…” Hebrews 10:24

A Few Pictures for Penny

In June, we will have lived in our "new house" for a whole year. That is 365 days. I am slightly embarrassed to admit this, but I have only hung three pieces of art total since moving in. Three. All three of these are in Penny's room, until this weekend anyway. I finally got around to some framing and hanging up in here! While this sounds slightly murderous, I assure you that nobody was hurt in the making of this art. I am happy I hung this art. I am ready for some color and character to start entering my house any day now. However, if I am being completely honest with myself, I doubt these frames are here to stay. Penny's room will be changing this summer with the addition of a big girl bed, so this is just for in the meantime. This is something that I need to work on when it comes to decorating and enjoying my home. We have been renovating for almost a year now and will be for most of the next year. I need to start getting over the whole idea that everything needs to be exactly so before I add art and pictures. It is going to take a while for new furniture to be bought and built, and until then I should really enjoy my walls. Even if that means I will need to patch up a nail hole here and there.

Anyway enough soul bearing, I found these two printables online, and they were freesies! I printed them on heavy duty card stock and put them in some cheapo matching frames I bought from Michael's at 50% off with a 25% off my entire order coupon. I think they came to around $7 for both. The first is from here.

The second is from here (thanks to Young House Love for finding that one for me.) This one I colored in with colored pencils.

Here they are in all their framed and hung up glory.

The last piece of art I added is from Josh's sister Maggie. She actually made the watercolor creatures above Penny's dresser as well. Penny loves to look at the birdie when she walks into the room. I love the pop of the green frame with the pink wall.

And for those of you curious, here is a shot of the other side of the room.

Admittedly, there is a TON of work left to do in this room, and like I said before, we will be moving it all around this summer. The art is a little too small. I have a whole wall completely bare. We could really use some closet doors. We need some more patterns and textures. How about a real curtain (that one is about a foot too short!) However if you take a look at the before photo, we have come a loooooong way. I need to look at these pictures more often, especially when I am feeling discouraged by renovation progress. :)

And let's just get a little before and after (for now anyway) action here.

What little updates are you making around your house? Do you have a hard time getting that first thing up, but then get into a groove? Is your decorating also all over the place like mine? Please share!
