He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

There really ought to be a sign upon my heart,
"Don't judge her yet, there's an unfinished part."
But I'll be perfect just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands.

He's still workin' on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.



In the mirror of His Word reflections that I see
Make me wonder why He never gave up on me.
He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray
Remember He's the Potter, I'm the clay.

He's still workin'on me to make me what I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be, He's still workin' on me.

Message In A Bottle

What can you do with 3 empty sparkling grape juice bottles left over from New Years Eve? Lots, I tell ya! Start off by soaking the bottle in warm water to remove the label...
Next, stamp an image on old brown paper and color the image in using your kids coloring pencil stash....


Modge Podge bits and pieces of paper, flowers, buttons, ribbon, and rope on.......


Turn upside down in a coffee cup to dry....LOL.......




Wait 3 days for the Mod Podge to dry because you caked on way too much, and VOILA......


The cutest little craft project you ever did see......

Oh yeah, and add a pink jewel. Can't forget that.......
embellish with a tag and beads......

Don't forget Cupid cause it's almost Valentine's Day......

LOVE it!





Now, what do you do with a LOVE sign that you got for a gift but it doesn't fit in with the decor of your home?

Spend an hour taking it apart, regretting every second of it while saying to yourself "Why did I ever think this was a good idea?"


Calm yourself with some hot chocolate and get to painting, girl! Gather some paper, stamps, ribbon, and of course Mod Podge! And put it all back together again (easier said than done).....

But it is cute, isn't it?



My man and I....we're 2 of a kind....


And that my friends is how I spent my week! How about you?

Your love sign is adorable! You may have just inspired my next project! Check out how similar the one I have is to yours by visiting my post about Valentine's Day. Great work!
