I am a Student!

I am thrilled to announce that I'm a student again!  I signed up for my writing class and am waiting for my materials to come.  I'm already coming up with ideas for things to write and have even started a story.  I cleaned up my craft room to make it a writing/craft room.   I have bookshelves and a desk and even put up some Van Gogh paintings to give it a nice ambiance.  I can go there to get away from the noise and write if I need to.  Having four teenagers in the house means there's always a bustle of activity.

I can't wait to get started, and finish something that was left undone years ago.  When I get my diploma or certificate I will feel like I truly accomplished something good.

Purex UltraPacks

Purex is giving us a new way to do laundry.  They have come up with Purex UltraPacks.  They are a small liquid-filled pack that you just toss into the washer when you do your laundry.  No measuring involved!  I have kids who do their own laundry, so I don't have to worry about them using too much with these wonderful UltraPacks!  I used them in the last few loads of laundry and LOVE the smell on my clothes when they are done.  I am going to be using these a lot now!  Another great thing is they come in different scents including Free & Clear for those with allergies to scents.

Stay tuned for a giveaway of valuable coupons in the near future.

New Chapter

My life has been filled with chapters, some good and some bad.  I have seen miracles happen in the form of healings in my own body and in the bodies of those I love.  I have also seen tragedies like my son who had seizures and is now a victim of autism, and my beloved mom passing away 2 years ago.  Chapters of our lives shape who we are, both the good and the bad ones.

This new chapter in my life is exciting, and maybe a little bit scary.  I am a student again!  I'm taking a writing class, actually finishing one that I started years ago.  It feels good to finish something I started, because I hate leaving things unfinished.  I don't know if God has it in His plans for me to get published, to make any money, to write for His glory or just finish the class and get my diploma/certificate.  Whatever happens, I will keep this Bible verse in mind as I do my class and see what happens:   Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for man. Colossians 3:23

New Blog Title

You may have noticed my new blog title, My 7th Heaven.  I have five kids, plus myself and my husband make a family of 7 and it feels like heaven (most of the time!)  Thus, the new name!  I'm not focusing so much on just handmade and crocheted things now that I closed my online shop.  Now my posts will be more about family life, recipes for large families that are easy and inexpensive, deals to save money, and more.  I appreciate you readers sticking with me through the changes!
