I promised some of these pictures a while ago... but it took way longer to finish than I thought it would!

Not the greatest pictures, but I took these with my old camera so that I wouldn't have to resize them for uploading.  I now wish that I had painted the larger frames with chalkboard paint, but I won't tell you how many coats matt put on them to get them perfect and I didn't dare ask for a change!  :)  All in all I'm happy with how it turned out!

FYI, these are all hung with Command Adhesives, best invention EVER!  No holes in the wall and when I want to take them down I can and no one will ever know there was anything there!

I started Bailey's backpack, just that one ruffle on the bottom, but I was super excited with the change that just that one ruffle made!  So much more personal!  Can't wait to get more on there.  Slowly but surely!

And... look what I got working today!  I was doing all the sewing by hand and wow that was taking forever, now I can go much faster!

Look at you go girl! Awesome! I love the frame framing the other frames and the backpack looks cuter already!

I'm amazed at what you can accomplish/plan for/dream up all while taking care of four kids and undergoing treatment. I love it!

Wow Lynette, I had no idea that "nesting" was a side effect of chemo! Good for you:) Kerri

You're so creative and inspiring! I wish I knew how to sew, as do many women these days I'm sure. It's kind of a lost art I'm afraid. Bailey's backpack is so cute! It's going to be AWESOME I can tell! As for the picture frames you created, they're a divine "masterpiece!". How fun and colorful! You're family will enjoy them for sure! The lights over the dining room table are so cool too! Loved the links you shared as well as the link to the Possum trip. We'll definetly take some time to check out the wonderful ministry the youth participated in for sure. As for you, you continue to amaze me! You sound so strong and faithful! We are all praying for your continued strength and stamina (hard to have a lot of stamina with such a young and active family I'm sure). I also loved the picture of you/Bailey's trip to Chicago with American Girl dolls. We took Haley last June and it was completely mindboggling! I was very resistant to spending any money there, yet Haley wanted to use her bday $ to get a new outfit for her doll. What a place huh!
Thanks for sharing your lives with us! You are an inspiration and celebration of life! God bless, Karen Turner
