OK, So I have a lot of pregnant friends...Come on! I live in Provo!!

So I have another friend that is getting ready to have her second baby. She is bummed cause she is not having a shower! So, she said jokingly that somebody better bring her something to the hospital room to help brighten the room up. So, I made a wreath.

I don't know if I like this one or not. She is having a boy. She doesn't like stuff on boys clothes like puppies, trains or sports...and that is basically ALL THAT IS OUT THERE!! So, I picked these colors but I couldn't find enough stuff that I liked to go on it. So I made the sign that says Mommy and Me and put a few scrapbooking pages that she can use on her new baby. So the wreath is for mom and baby. After I did it I started getting more ideas (of course after the fact...) on what I could do. The little scrapbooking pages say "I am a child of God" and "I love to see the temple".

Let me know your thoughts on this one. I have a little bit before I can change it. And BTW directions are coming soon for the diaper cake..... Glad you liked it!

Oh Yeah! Crafty Divas Comin' Through!

OK so my friend Laura's baby shower is tomorrow and my neighbor Marcie (which is Laura's sis-in-law) and I wanted to make this for her. It is a diaper cake made completely out of diapers and a diaper wreath (Marcie made that one) that is made out of diapers too.

We saw these at a craft store once and were completely intimidated on making them but wanted to anyway. Well, we tried it and it was super easy! It took about 1.5 hours or a little more. We think it turned out GREAT!! (The lighting in the pictures is bad...sorry about that....) There is so many themes you can do with these cakes and wreaths.

If you want me to write out specific directions let me know and I will do my best to do it! Or better yet, just fly me out to where you are I we can do it together ;)

A powerful analogy on the subject of thoughts!

A little over a year ago I heard an analogy that has given me a lot of mileage in my practice about the power of our thoughts. The analogy is from Wayne Dyer.

Think of your thoughts as a form of mental currency. Imagine that I give you a million dollars (you like this game already), and you take this bushel of money down to the mall. You can buy anything you want with this money. You go into the first store where they are selling plastic trees. These are not the nice attractive trees you might want for your home or office, but absolutely hideous, ugly, gross things. You look at an ugly orange one and think to yourself, "I hate this thing! Who would EVER want this thing in their house?!!" Then you look at the price tag and it says $30,000. You ask yourself, "Where do they get off charging thirty thousand dollars for this piece of junk?!" So you grab the stupid thing, drag it up to the front, plunk down your thirty grand and say, "I hate this thing! Send it to my place."

The next store is selling pots (probably for the plastic trees), and they are just as disgusting as the trees. Again you find a particularly yucky one and see that they are charging $10,000 for it. "WHAT? Ten grand for this?!? I hate this thing and would never want it in my home! - Here's your ten thousand, send it to my place!"

You would never do this, right? You would only spend your money on things you WANT. But how are you spending your thoughts? Take an accounting and ask yourself how much you are spending on things you DON'T want. Your thoughts are the currency with which you buy your life, and whatever you buy with this mental currency will follow you home and fill up your place.

Spend your thoughts wisely!
