In the craft basket: a crocheted rattle for a friend who just had a baby
Looking forward to:  going to a new yarn store on Wednesday with my friend

Homemaking Tip for this week: this is a GOOD one that really works pay attention people. If you have mildew covered items from a storage shed im my case ALL my baby stuff the bouncy seat, carseat, swing, high chair, stroller, jumparoo  was affected , caused by a hole in our roof thanks to a ice storm in 2009. Fill your washing machine with water then add a half of jug of bleach then add all mildewed items and let soak for 3 -4 hours then drain the washer and wash items like normal, most of if not all mildew will be gone and it didn't affect the coloring at all . i was shocked it worked and thought i would pass it along. saved me a BUNCH of MONEY..

Lesson learned the past few days: say what you mean and mean what you say

. On my Prayer List:my friend Crissy and her baby , me and the hubby ,
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. - Philippians 4:12-13 (KJV)


  1. Great homemaking tip and your lesson learned is so true. :)
