Bird in Flight

Well it finally happened, I started posting work for White Bird Press... I have been doing custom greetings for several years now and so proud of the dirrection the company is heading. With the next phase of life we are about to enbark on I am so blessed to be doing what I love; creating, making art, touching lives, helping people, and all the while watching my daughter grow. White Bird Press is about to start a new adventure with the expantion of products and the growth of a sister company called "Hooo do you Love". I can't wait to show you all what we are up to!

Here's the new Logo... I LOVE it! It is finally just what I always hoped it would be. What do you think?



My Passion is this little babe with sandy waves...

How did I get so blessed to have this sweetness in my life, holding my hand, calling my name and laughing along side me?

Even on days when she is fussy and tired and throwing everything I give her to try and ease her mood... all I can think about is her sweet kisses, her wave bye-bye, her attempt to jump like a bunny but can't get off the ground, and her head resting on my shoulder nuzzled under my chin. I love it when she reaches for my face to rub my cheeks and says "aw" just like I do to her.

And when she plays in her house out back and knocks on the window with the back of her hand instead of the front calling out "na-na" (knock knock) "ew-is-ee" (who is it) and pokes her head out at me.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17

She IS a good and perfect gift and with every new day, every new moment she learns how to live in this life... I learn how to love more deeply, trust more fully, and wait more patiently on the Lord.

I love this recipe and Bry loves it too, it's become a new family fav this year! YUM-O Enjoy!
PS. this recipe first called for a mushroom sauce to put on top... Bry told me ten years ago when we first stared dating that he was allergic to mushrooms... since we've been married i have found that it was a lie (he just hates them and knew i would want him o try them if he hadn't told me he was allergic) SOOOO... i make it withOUT the mushrooms :) and it's JUST as good.


Coupon Mom

So I don't typically watch Oprah, but my babysitter (aka: my mom aka: Kehnley's Fancy) recorded it for me. It was all about saving money and thrifty living which is the tag line for 09 in the Blowey Household.... okay well I did go buy some stuff at Banana.. but I got REALLY good sales. (the shopping press ends there) so yeah... Oprah... saving... okay back on track. Several things were amazing and you should go to www.Oprah.com and click on Tuesday and see for yourself. If you are a spending addict like myself it will help you out SO much! I am learned quickly how merciful God is in letting us learn the lessons now and how much I need His provision in EVERYTHING! So there was this mom on the show who saves TONS of money at the grocery store which for a growing family , hopefully in numbers not laterally.... is one of the biggest expenses. She has saved $ 72,000 in 15 years at the grocery store with just 30 minutes a day and a little bit of organization. She is my hero. Here is her website... www.couponmom.com

It's free and it's going to change my life!! I will let you know how the first trip to the grocery store goes in two weeks on this woman's plan!

"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life."
1 Timothy 6:17-19
