Coffee in style!

As many of you already know, I really love my coffee. Not that it has an effect on me any more, I've definitely grown a tolerance to it, but I still drink it A LOT of it nonetheless. The taste, the smell, the color, the warmth, the idea of coffee makes me smile. It is just so right to drink coffee in the morning, afternoon, evening and every waking hour of the day :) (just kidding, kind of)

I rather drink coffee than eat. That is a bold statement I know, and it's not true all the time of course, if I were very hunger then I would choose food, but for the most part, my day to day life, I would choose coffee. P.S. that doesn't mean I can just drink coffee all day and not eat, because let's be real, you got to eat FOOD. ha

The point of my rambling about coffee is to introduce to you the perfect little coffee cozy that I made and adore! I created it because I find myself at coffee shops quite too often (I'm working on decreasing that number by the way) with a cup filled with heavenly goodness, soI was inspired to create a coffee cup sleeve/cozy! It's a good way to recycle (by not using those paper sleeves) and it's a great way to look cute with your coffee! :) win-win.

It's adorable right!? I just love it :)

I do love cute coffee cozies :)

See what I mean by coffee instead of a meal? ;)  
I hope you have a great Jesus day this Friday! (blogging at 1am? what am I becoming) Drink lots of coffee ;)

And happy first day of April!!

Pancake Party!

It all started with my big sister saying one afternoon, "Tina make some pancakes." And then I got to work. I wanted to make them a little bit more fun, so I added food coloring. I also added bananas to some and chocolate chips to others. I got the idea of adding food coloring to the pancakes from all the other blogs out there :) I love the creative ideas floating around :)

I separated the pancake batter into equal amounts in bowls so I could mix in the color.

So fun! :)        
My sisters a.k.a my taste testers ;)

buttered up pancakes haha

Two happy sisters :)

 Click on the pictures to see them a little bit bigger :) 
Thank you for reading my blog! 
Have a joyful day filled with the love of the Jesus.

Putting my old philosophy books to good use.

    Creative and cute wreaths consume the blog land all around, and I particularly am so drawn to the paper ones! I started making them myself and I just love how they look in my room! The two below are the ones I made, if you want to make these, just look around blog land for a tutorial that you like :)

 I love the texture it adds to my room.
A lot of little circle papers :)
The two wreaths on my wall that I made out of my old philosophy books, I knew they would be useful one day! ;)

I love the vintage look book pages add

Lots of love to you all.

Serving a God who is the most creative.

I love to create. I love to make things. I love knowing that creativity is from God. He is the most creative, He created all things through Him and for Himself. 

Being creative glorifies Jesus, and glorifying Jesus is what I live for. I am so amazed at how He can take anything, good or bad, and use it to glorify His beautiful name. So with that said, I'm starting this little blog to share photos, ideas, crafts, recipes, thoughts and such from this beautiful life that I have been given freely by grace to move and breathe for His glory.

It's all about Jesus.

I hope you will enjoy reading through this blog and I hope that I will be consistent in my updates :)
