Best Ideas Ever!

Well, sometimes life gets in the way of the best intentions and that is what happened here the last month. Benji had three major emergency surgeries in less than a week and we spent 11 days in Children's Hospital. He came home with a PICC line (a port that delivers the medicine straight to his heart) and I hook him up to a special machine that administers heavy duty antibiotics three times a day. He's still not out of the woods and according to one of the doctors over his care, "He's in grave danger for the next three months." So, please keep us in your prayers - especially Benji as he fights a deadly staph infection around the hardware in his back.

Sometimes I find some very creative ideas on blogs I happen on. This post has the addresses of some of the creative ladies who come up with those ideas. Enjoy visits with Amy, Savannah and Amanda for help with your holiday decorating and gift giving!


Amy gives a free tutorial on how to customize a beautiful clipboard for someone on your list. Here's the address to that post - but be sure to stay a while and see all her other cool ideas:

Another neat gift idea that could easily be adapted to Sundy School teacher, a family name, pastor, etc. Again, stay a while and enjoy the creativity of Amanda.
