A list of things I am thankful for…

Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S., I thought I would list some of the many things I am thankful for.  In keeping with my Quest47 theme, I chose 47 things in no particular order…

  1. The depth and breadth of God’s love for me.  It takes my breath away.
  2. My husband –  for his consistent pursuit of ‘Love God. Love others’. And for his faithful love and care of me for 32 years (27 married + 5 dating).
  3. For 47 years – Not everyone gets the chance to grow old.  I’m grateful for the 47 I’ve had.
  4. Mobility – I may not be in the best shape, but I’m so thankful that I can move around.
  5. My sewing machine – making stuff is such a joy of mine and I’m grateful for this handy tool in my arsenal.
  6. My parents (mine and Mike’s) who have always been my greatest cheerleaders.  They show me daily what sacrificial love looks like.
  7. Insulin – well, without it, things would not be pretty.
  8. Friends who enrich my life in a million different ways.  You know who you are.
  9. My nieces and nephews – I think I have the BEST collection of nieces and nephews ever.  I love them all to pieces.
  10. My dogs.  Ones who have passed and those currently sitting at my feet.  Life is just brighter and happier with them in it.
  11. My dental hygienist – She’s so awesome.  We always talk about our dogs and she never judges me for the lack of flossing.
  12. Gold Bond Ultimate Shea Butter Lotion – my go to lotion for incredibly dry skin.
  13. My hairdresser – She has been cutting my hair for 33 years.  You can say we’ve sort of grown up together.
  14. My paper cutter  – good tools make all the difference when crafting.
  15. My brothers and sisters (mine and Mike’s) – who we’ve watch grow into fantastic adults.  Love these guys.
  16. My glasses – without them I’d be blind as a bat.  I really love seeing.
  17. This blog – this experience has enriched my life in ways that have surprised me and humbled me.
  18. My pastor – such a blessing for our church and a good friend.
  19. My iPhone – an invaluable tool.
  20. For the internet –  there really isn’t anything you can’t learn.
  21. My home – we have shelter and warmth.  That’s a lot.
  22. My vet – she’s so awesome at working with all the different personalities of my dogs.
  23. My planner –  I’ve finally made one that meets my planning needs. So fun to use.
  24. Friends who trust me to care for their dogs.
  25. My laptop – a tool with infinite possibilities.
  26. For Netflix and TV Series – there’s nothing like binge-watching over a weekend.
  27. For coffee – the aroma, the warmth, the taste, all of it.
  28. Running, clean water – We support kids who live in parts of Africa where this isn’t a reality.
  29. For handmade soap – it’s really quite lovely.
  30. My car – provides me with the freedom to go places.
  31. Our appliances – they sure make necessary chores easier.
  32. My doctor – she’s the absolute best.  Always makes me feel like I’m the only patient she has.
  33. For books (paper and audio) – they take me to faraway lands, introduce me to new ideas and keep me company while I craft and do chores.  Authors are the most amazing people.
  34. My grandpa – so thankful for his 97 years.
  35. Walking the dogs everyday – it’s the same route every day, but they show me that it’s important to have unspeakable joy despite the repetitiveness of life.
  36. For Facebook – allows me to be connected to family oversees and keep in touch with friends far and wide.
  37. Annual trips to England with my mom to see my grandpa.
  38. Knitting – I marvel at what can be produced with two sticks and a piece of string.
  39. My Shop Vac – makes cleaning so much easier.
  40. For walnuts and pecans – love the texture and the taste and the negligible carbs.
  41. My bed – it’s warm and comfortable.
  42. Mike’s cooking skills – he’s really very good and very inventive.
  43. For Amazon Prime – We definitely get our money’s worth.  And we get to watch free movies and shows.
  44. The creative blogging community – I learn so much from fellow bloggers.  There really are so many clever people out there.
  45. My camera on my phone – just love capturing pictures of our life.
  46. Mike’s 23 years at Youth for Christ – so grateful for the privilege to impact kids lives.
  47. Health insurance – yes, it’s all a bit confusing, but so incredibly thankful we have it.

What are you thankful for today?





“We’re thankful for chasing squirrels, treats, snuggling with you at night, treats, breakfast, lunch, dinner, treats, playing catch, treats, long walks, treats, helping dad in the yard, treats, friends to play with, treats, long naps on our cozy beds, treats, sitting in the sun, treats…”

Quest 47 begins today.

I turn 47 today and you know what that means.  QUEST 47!

To Review and warning – this is a bit of a long read:  This idea began over a year ago when I was reading a blog where the author talked about turning 30 and wanting the year following her birthday to be filled with intentional experiences.  So she thought of 30 items that she wanted to accomplish before her 31st birthday.  Now if you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ll know I’m a sucker for this type of thing.  I love lists and planning stuff and when you wrap that all up in a nice birthday bow – well, I’m just giddy!

Additionally around this time, I was thinking a lot about purpose and intention in my own life and trying to figure out my next steps.  I read a book called The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau and he talked about pursuing quests and he even defined a quest.

  • A quest has a clear goal and a specific end point.
  • A quest presents a clear challenge.
  • A quest requires sacrifice of some kind.
  • A quest is often driven by a calling or sense of mission.
  • A quest requires a series of small steps and incremental progress toward the goal. 


I devoured the book and highly recommend it and decided to put my plan into action on my 46th birthday.  I called it Quest46.

Last year, for the 46 days prior to my birthday, I shared each item on my list.  I’m not going to do that this year, but I will list each one here and talk about my thoughts behind each one.  I have divided my list of 47 into 9 categories, balancing my time and energy across the breadth and depth of my life.  The categories I chose are Faith, Health, Home & Yard, Crafts, Marriage, Family & Friends, Dogs, WWMD Blog and Personal.



So here’s Quest47!


1.  Daily recite and meditate on John 1.  While I was awful at memorization last year, I did love the daily reading and mediating on the same piece of Scripture.  John 1 is one of my favorites so this will be my daily reading this year.

2.  Complete December Daily for December 2015.  Make it a tradition.  I was introduced to Ali Edwards’ December Daily project a few years ago, and just love the way the exercise forces you to be present during the days of December.  These days can become hectic and blurry, but this project keeps me focused.  I want and need more of that. By the way, I didn’t buy the kit… I’m using my own supplies.

3.  Put together 50 days of gifts for Mike’s 50th.  My hubby will turn 50 on April 1, 2016.  So starting February 12, 2016, he will receive one gift every day until his birthday.  As you can imagine I’ve already started this.

4.  Finish a special secret project.  This is something I’ve needed to complete for 3 years.  And it’s a surprise.  Ssshhhhh….

5.  Finish crocheting the Ripple blanket.  This is the first of the few items that will continue over from Quest46.

6.  Make a dog bed for my craft room.  I used to have a small couch in my craft room for the dogs.  I say ‘used to’ because they made it their own and pretty much destroyed it.  Now  I have a long, low table that reaches the base of the window sill so they can sit there and watch the world go by.  They really need a cushy dog bed.

7.  Journal52.  I want to continue art-journaling, but I’m not going to stress myself out by feeling like I have to do it every week.

8.  Read 12 new books.  I love books, but 24 was a huge time suck.  12 is more manageable in light of all my other projects.

9.  Teach the dogs 1 (one) new trick.  I have this book called 101 Dog Tricks.  My guys may be old, but I think they’ve got one more trick in them.  Note to self:  Better make a ton of good dog treats.  

10.  Make birthday cards for family and friends.  I love making cards and thinking about the special qualities of the people I give them to.  Definitely going to continue to make this a priority.

11.  Send one “thinking of you” gift every month.  I just love doing this and would send many more than one, but I need to be mindful of budget.

12.  Complete 3 online classes.  I love to learn and have a laundry list of classes I want to do.  I think 3 is a do-able number in a year.

13. Continue 5 year – daily, one-line journal.  I have loved this process and look forward to seeing if any of my responses have changed in a year.

14.  Make 2 triangle quilts for the living room.  As you are aware we have dogs.  And our dogs are allowed on the furniture, so we have quilts that cover the couch and chair.  And they’re starting to fall apart.  I’m going to follow the tutorial from elisejoy on making quilts from triangles because I loved how they looked.  I’m going to go with a collection of soft greens and blues.

15.  Do as many sit-ups as I can everyday.  In an attempt to introduce some semblance of exercise into my life, I’ve chosen to go really simple.  I will do as many sit-ups as possible everyday.

16.  Finish 3 projects that have been sitting for years.  Trust me, there are more than three, but it’s a start.

17.  Upload my yarn stash and projects to Ravelry.  I have wanted to do this for years and in an effort to be organized and aware of the yarn I already own for projects, I’m going to tackle this.  If you saw my stash, you’d know this is no small undertaking.

18.  Post at least twice a week on my blog.  I want to commit to consistent content.  I really enjoy doing this blog… I think I just overloaded myself by trying to a post everyday.  Here’s to do-overs.

19.  Complete my Summertide Shawl.  This was a Mystery Knit-a-Long that I started this past September while I was in England.  I was on target while I was on vacation, but once I returned to regular life, other commitments got in the way.  I’ve made good progress and I want to finish this.

20. Paint the Kitchen Cabinets.  Sound familiar?  I just need to do this.

21.  Knit toe up socks.  This will follow knitting socks cuff down.

22.  Work another 52 items off “My Todo’s” board on Pinterest.  Excited to try new things.

23.  Knit Woody a sweater.  I found this awesome pattern that allows you to knit a dog sweater based on your dog’s measurements.  Woody always feels the cold in winter and his current sweater is looking a little worse for wear.

24.  Make Mike a Dr. Who Quilt.  This will be one of the 50 gifts.  I have all the elements ready to go.  I just need to get started.

25.  Complete 5 techniques out of the Knitter’s Life List.  I have a book called the Knitter’s Life List and want to try 5 new techniques.

26.  Paint patio furniture.  This is all part of my backyard re-do.

27.  Walk at least 3,000 steps/day.  I know the going number is 10,000, but I need something I can check off the list everyday.  I have a Fitbit and plan to increase my distance, but for now (and with my feet), I’m sticking to 3,000 as my minimum.

28.  Do as many push-ups as I can everyday.  Continuing with the exercise component of my life, I’m going to add push-ups because the walking covers my legs, the sit-ups my core and the push-ups my upper torso and arms.  

29.  Complete 30 days of Yoga with Adriene.  Yoga with Adriene is a YouTube channel with an excellent instructor and I’ve always wanted to learn how to do yoga.

30.  Take part in 2 Mystery Knit-A-Longs.  A Knit-a-Long is when a community of knitters comes together to all work on the same project at the same time.  A Mystery Knit-a-long is the same thing except the pattern is revealed to you in segments.  You know the basic project, but none of the design.  It’s quite exciting.

31.  Finish Central Park Hoodie.  This is one of the projects that was a knit-a-long, but wasn’t finished.  I really want this one done.

32.  Continue reading through the Bible 1 chapter per day.  I only have two years and three months to go.

33.  Make a Quiet Book.  A Quiet book is made from fabric and is for children.  I’m fascinated by them and would love to make one about dogs, of course.

34.  Finish the backyard.  I know this seems like a huge blanket statement, but I really just have to get on with the projects I’ve already started and finish them.

35.  Play the card game, “Hand and Foot” regularly.  This is a great game and recently played it with our folks.

36.  Send two “thinking of you” cards every week.  I love making cards and more than that, I love sending them to people I love and admire.  I need to be making my cards on a regular basis and this will get me into the craft room and creating.

37.  Knit 1 hat per month for newborns and donate them.  I was recently re-introduced to the need for newborn hats to be donated.  I have tons of baby yarn and a newborn hat takes next to no time to make.  Besides I get to practice my magic loop.

38.  Make birthday gifts for all family members.  This year (2016) I’m going to ask each family member what they would like me to make for them for their birthdays.  I’ve already got a nice list and am chomping at the bit with some projects.  I’ll definitely be posting about them.

39.  Leave 5 comments/day on blogs I follow.  In the blog-o-sphere, comments let you know that people are reading what you’re writing.  I love them and so I wanted to be better at leaving them for the bloggers I follow.  (Constructive, kind) Feedback is a beautiful thing.

40.  Pray for my nieces and nephews.  This has been a privilege and I want to continue doing it.

41.  Start a “Dear Jane” quilt.  A “Dear Jane” quilt is more than likely a lifetime project, but I need to start sometime.

42.  Post 10 items to Etsy every month.  I have a shop and I need to build up my inventory and offer a variety of items.  I also need a personal goal and this is it.

43.  Photo-a-day using the Collect App.  I have loved this process and want to continue.  It’s fun to see the month in pictures.

44.  Listen to 12 audio books this year.  This is a great way to multi-task while I’m knitting.  I can also borrow audio books through the library.

45.  Knit one square per month for Knit-a-Square.  I know this doesn’t seem like much, but it’s better than nothing.

46.  Floss everyday.  True confession time.  I don’t floss everyday, but I NEED to.  Being a diabetic means I’m more susceptible to gum disease. I really don’t want my teeth to fall out so I’m committing to floss everyday.

47.  Start a sock yarn blanket.  This is also one of those long term projects.  Everyone I follow through podcasts or blogs seems to be doing one and so do I.  And yes, I have sock yarn.

Well that’s Quest47.  I hope you come back to see how I’m progressing.  Here’s to another year!




Homemade Dog Biscuits


Mom – we’re on board.  We understood the words treats, dog bed, treats, sweater, treats, walk, treats, oh and treats.  We’re not sure what all the other stuff is, but it seems to make you happy so we’re with you.  Go Quest47!

Quest46 Ends Tomorrow

Quest46LogoIt’s been 364 days since my Quest46 started.  {If you’re new to my blog, Quest46 is a group of 46 goals I gave myself for one year following my 46th birthday.  You can read about it here.}

Observations after a full year minus one day:

  • Time is an elusive thing.  A year feels like an eternity and yet you blink and it’s over. I’m learning to be grateful for everyday.
  • While I didn’t complete everything, I did more than I would have had I not made the list.
  • It was a great exercise in giving myself permission to change things around because life has a way of getting in the middle of your plans.
  • I had a difficult time just sticking to my list.  As I remarked in an earlier post, crafting opportunities are glittery gifts from angels.  You just can’t say no. ;-)
  • My ability to conceive the magnitude of some projects needs improvement.
  • I have loved this Quest and am eager to start Quest47!  Tune in tomorrow.

Here’s my final recap of Quest46.

1. Memorize Psalm 91.  I learned that memorization ain’t my thing.  However, what I did love was reading this Psalm every day and meditating on the words.  I may not be able to repeat it back to you, but in a year’s time, I’ve come to know the depth and breadth of God’s love for and protection of me in new and amazing ways.
2. Lose the rest of my weight and increase my fitness.   This was a major struggle this year and it’s not for the lack of trying.  I developed tendinitis in both feet, a bone spur on one of my ankles and rode the roller coaster of blood sugar as a diabetic.  While I didn’t budge on the scale, I did lose a clothing size (yea!).  I maintained my exercise by walking the dogs everyday and doing a variety of exercises here and there.  Can you tell I’m not a fan of exercise.  I know I need to be so I’m changing things up a bit and trying some different tactics.  We’ll see.
3. Find and implement new ways to honor Mike daily.  You’d have to ask Mike if I was successful in this. ;-)
4. Make albums for each dog.   I did not finish this, but still want to.  I have the albums and the pictures all sorted.    
5. Crochet a Ripple Blanket.  This was one of those, “Oh, it will only take a week” projects.  I’m still not finished, but will finish.  
6. Plant a vegetable garden.  This did not happen.  Maybe this year.  Maybe not.
7. Journal 52.  While I didn’t do this every week, the process introduced me to the world of art journals.  What I learned is that I need to be better at being okay with crappy looking pages.  That’s a struggle for me, but I think if I learned that it would be a good thing for my creativity.  Listening to this podcast from the Paperclipping Roundtable inspired me to soldier on with this project.  It’s a really good podcast – give it a listen.
8. Read 24 new books.  The 21 books I read:
The God Ask
Manage Your Day to Day
The Go-Getter
Yes Please
Scary Close
Aunt Dimity’s Death
Death of a Snob
Death of a Perfect Wife
Death of an Outsider
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
Undone: A Story of Making Peace with an Unexpected Life
Murder Most Frothy
Decaffeinated Corpse
French Pressed
Espresso Shot
File Nov 23, 9 14 55 AMThe Signature of All Things
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
All the Light We Cannot See

9. Make a scarf for Margaret.  Here’s the pattern, and it is finished!  
10. Make birthday cards for family and friends.  Finished.
11. Send two “thinking of you gifts” every month.  I managed to complete 11 of these.  I still love the idea, but I think I’ll do less.  I didn’t have trouble thinking of people or things to send them… it didn’t always fit into our budget.
12. Complete 6 online classes.  This did not happen.  I’m still going to try next year, though.
13. Start a 5 year – daily, one-line journal.  Loved doing this and will continue.
14. Learn how to make paper.  This did not happen and the intrigue has left me.  Maybe it will come back in the future.
15. Make Christmas stockings.  Didn’t happen last year, but plan for this Christmas. Maybe…
16. Learn 12 new recipes.  I made 4 new recipes. #1.  Pumpkin Pie (low carb)  #2  Creme Brulee (low carb)  #3   Broccoli, Ham, Mozzarella Egg Bake  #4 Ham, Onion, Pepper crustless Quiche  I learned that I’m not a very adventurous cook.
17. Learn how to weave.  I learned very basic weaving and loved it.
18. Record 12 card making video tutorials.  Did not do this.  Still thinking about it for next year.
19. Make a smaller soap box and make different scented soaps every month.  I made a soap box out of cardboard and one batch.  Lavender Rose. Yummmmm…  This will be a project I continue because we love handmade soap.  
20. Paint Kitchen Cabinets.  This will happen next year.  
21. Learn how to dye with natural ingredients.  Still interested in learning how to dye, but not so much with natural ingredients.  I’m more into bold, bright colors and that’s hard to achieve with natural dyes.  
22. Work 52 items off “My Todo’s” Board on Pinterest. Completed 66.  #1 I made paper beads using old books, bead cores and Utee Ultra Thick Embossing Resin.  #2   I made dog collars for a friend’s dog.  #3  Homemade Soft Scrub Cleaner #4  Made Valentine heart wreath with dyed coffee filters.  #5   Made homemade mosquito repellent.  Smelled good, but didn’t work.  #6   Made dog chew toys.  These were super popular.  In my {Make Madness} blog series, I checked off 31 items. In my {DIY From Scratch} blog series, I checked off 29 items.  This was a no-brainer project for me.  
23. Make mini-albums of dogs I dog-sit for Christmas presents.  I’ve changed my mind several times with this project. I’m back to doing the mini-album idea, but it won’t happen for another year.  Too.many.dogs.
24. Make Mike a Dr. Who Quilt.  Have cut the panels, downloaded the patterns and found my embroidery hoops.  Will happen this year as part of a larger project for Mike.
25. Start a fairy garden.  Didn’t actually do this, but I  did start a Pinterest board to curate ideas.  Hopefully this next year.
26. Paint patio furniture.  Didn’t happen, but plan to this next year.
27. Plant a cutting garden.  This is one of those projects that lives in my mind and not in reality.  It’s a wonderful thought, but not very practical for our backyard.  
28. Make dog biscuit gift bags for Christmas.  This was going to be a Valentine gift, but that didn’t happen.  It will happen this Christmas 2015.
29. Complete all the achievements of the 7 Minute Workout.  Started this, but didn’t continue.  I’m willing to concede that my tendinitis played a huge role in me not continuing.  It’s not an excuse, but it is my reason.
30. Beat my time in the Urban Cow Half Marathon.  I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to do this.  My feet are much better, but long distances do nothing to help the tendinitis.  I haven’t given up on the idea, but right now I need to find other ways to exercise.
31. Finish Central Park Hoodie.  I will finish this when I have the Ripple Blanket done. 
32. Read through the Bible. 1 chapter per day.  Started this on January 1, 2015. Up to 1 Chronicles 26.
33. Make birds for wall tree.  The birds arrived!!!  18 of them.  Check them out.
34. Declutter and decorate Master Bedroom.  Started decluttering using the method found in the book “The life-changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo.  Have not decorated though.
35. Make Cloth Art Journal.  Using my planner idea, I made an art journal cover and filled it with blank art journal books.  I’ll be sharing more about this in the future.
36. Learn to knit socks.  Found the pattern and the class.  Will wait until Central Park Hoodie is finished (31).
37. Work on Project Life every week.  While I’ve kept track of journaling and photos throughout the year, I haven’t finalized the deal by actually placing them in an album.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this.
38. Transcribe Da’s tapes.  This is a project that I delegated.  I transferred the audio files to cd’s and my mom listened to them and transcribed them.  Now I just have to decide how I want to proceed.
39. Make dog beds for my Etsy shop. Completely revised how I make these beds.  Originally I made various sizes of dog beds and also made the custom inserts.  Sadly I couldn’t make people happy with the custom inserts (too flat, too full), so I decided to design a single size dog bed that can accommodate two standard pillows.  I tested my pillows on the dogs that I watch and they all gravitated to the larger bed regardless of the size of the dog.  Everyone’s happy!  Donated a bed to a pet rescue for an auction.
40. Pray for my nieces and nephews.  Everyday.  I’m really enjoyed this and plan to continue.
41. Add a new item every month to Etsy shop to build variety and inventory.  This is an area where I have great ideas in my head, but haven’t translated them into reality.  Need to really work on improving in this area.
42. Put together a team for the local SPCA Doggie Dash in June.  Did not happen.  Maybe in the future. 
43. Photo-a-day using the Collect App.  Love this app.  Here’s the year minus November 2015.

44. Read Pride and Prejudice.  This was not one of the books I read.  Still want to.
45. Knit 1 square per week for Knit-a-square. I managed to knit 12.  Not a very good offering.  Will try better this year.
46. Be a better blogger and blog-reader. Post consistently. Comment regularly.  Work on this everyday.  Really pleased with my {31 Days of Cards} Series, my {Make Madness} Series, my {DIY From Scratch} Series and my {Bird, Bird, Bird is the Word} Series.  Although I love the continuity of series, I burn myself out really quickly.  I also struggle with the fear of boring people to tears with my posts.  Not giving up though.

Until next time,





We’re really exhausted.  A whole year to you is seven to us.  And you’re telling us we’re going to do this all over again plus one.  We’d better finish our naps so we can be ready for Quest47!

Saturday Snippets | November 21, 2015

Welcome to Saturday Snippets.  This is where I share links and odd bits of info from the past week.

1.  I know we’re three quarters of the way through November, but it’s never a bad time to be thankful.  Here’s a creative way to think about gratitude.

2. Meet Orion, the diabetic-alert service dog.  Another amazing example of how dog’s enrich our lives.

3. Apparently if you’re a cat owner, this is a rite of passage.  Need to try this with the dogs.

4.  This is awesome.  The male lion’s paw is as big as the man’s head.

5.  And finally…. your cuteness overload for the day. You’re welcome.

Well that’s all the Snippets I have for today.  Have a wonderful rest of your day,









We’re a cuteness explosion!

Saturday Snippets | October 31, 2015

Welcome to Saturday Snippets.  This is where I share links and odd bits of info from the past week.
