Do it yourself

LENT 2017:Spiritual Recharge

Today is the first day of the Lent season! I have really been looking forward to it this year. As some of you may know, I was baptized in November. It was one of the most amazing experiences and decisions I have ever made! I am so happy I made it official to become a follower of Christ. I was actually baptized as a baby when I “was” Catholic, but that is another story for later ;-).

Lent is a time when I RECHARGE and refocus on my relationship with God, myself and others. It is a time when I figure out what I not only want to give up during Lent and after, but also, what I want to gain. Since being baptized, there have been some interesting experiences happening. God didn’t say once you are baptized your life will be perfect. It is the total opposite. But that is where the faith you may not have had before really starts to kick in. You have faith in God’s plan for your life and not so much of your own. HA! God’s plan will leave our plans in the dust, if only we really TRUST him.  It is hard and no walk in the park. Take a moment to think about when things really got tough, and now, look at where you are. See, God’s got you.

Now, let’s be honest. Most of us spend the majority of our time at work. I mean, we have to make a living right? But it doesn’t mean we have to go to the office every day and look at those same boring gray cubicle walls and the boring desk necessities. Even if you have an office with a window, you can always Glam Up your office space a bit. Give a nice touch that is professional but shows a bit of personality.  YOUR personality.

Bible Study/Prayer Binder

IMG_5116

I am so thrilled that I have finally finished making and setting up my binder I will be using for Bible Study and writing down Prayers. I have been on a spiritual journey for almost two years now  and just wanted to make something that I could write down scriptures, my conversations with GOD and prayers for loved ones and the world. And of course I had to make it nice and cute 🙂 By being able to write down what I am reading in the bible or inspiration I see, I am able to reflect back and refer to things and apply it to my life. I have divided my binder into 5 sections: S.O.A.P, Journal, Prayers, “BLESSON”, and Favorite Verses. Come, take a look inside!

Star Spangled Shorty

My first DIY involving clothing and let me tell you, it was a challenge for me. Took about 2 days for me to finish due to my hectic schedule, but I am some what pleased with them. I am definitely packing these with me when I go to Orlando this weekend. I’m so Patriotic!

Use a razor or box cutter to distress your shorts. You can distress them as much as YOU want. Have fun!

Be careful not to cut the areas where you will place your bandana.

Grab your fabric glue and outline around the seams with glue. It’s ok to put dabs of glue in the middle on the side you will put the stars since it will not show through as much.

(I learned the hard way on the stripe side)DSC_0791

Cut the stars section from your bandana and place it on the shorts and press down gently. I let it dry over night just to be safe.

Once dry, grab your scissors and cut the edges of the bandana as close to the seams of the short as possible.

Now you are ready to do the other side. Just repeat the same steps for this side.

I had to double up on my stripes side because the glue was showing through.

Super Cute!

I will be sure to post how I styled them for your guys!

Please do not use a REAL FLAG.

I purchased the Bandana and Fabric Glue from my local Craft store.
