MMM, I found my creative side again.

A friend of a friend (at what point does she become my friend..) had a benefit show this evening to raise money for a mission trip to India that she is going on next month. I heard crafts were going to be sold, so I thought maybe I could help out. I made some headbands and broaches out of fabric flowers. I sold all of the headbands (yay!) and one broach. So exciting! I'm thinking of heading over to etsy and setting up a little store.

Get a load of this little cutie

"Never accept and be content with unanalyzed assumptions, assumptions about the work, about the people, about the church or Christianity. Never be afraid to ask questions about the work we have inherited or the work we are doing. There is no question that should not be asked or that is outlawed. The day we are completely satisfied with what we have been doing; the day we have found the perfect, unchangeable system of work, the perfect answer, never in need of being corrected again, on that day we will know that we are wrong, that we have made the greatest mistake of all."

--Vincent J. Donovan (quoted in "A New Kind of Christianity" by Brian McLaren)

I think I'll love it when I can finally get a hoop up in there. My roommate said, "Our children will probably think nose rings are lame and are for moms..."
