    I love the chalkboard calender that would be so cool for a kitchen or maybe an office…

  3. Sister Diane Says:

    Wow, that little kitchen is amazing! This might be my favorite group of projects yet. :)

    Dd and I created a child silhouette last night. She needed the whole
    body of a little girl. I put it on my blog this morning.

    I love this blog too. I also made the pumpkin cookies yesterday,
    with acorn squash because that is what I had on hand. They are
    good but I think the pumpkin would make them better and maybe
    some dark chocolate chips added would be even yummier.

    I forgot to say I’ve been wanting to make some portrait silhouettes
    and wanted to know how to do it.

    I also have been wanting to find what I could use for organic paint.
    I seen on PBS a man that was using plants for paints but it didn’t show
    how he did it. It wasn’t that type of show.

    I left a message on another site about One Pretty Thing!

    God Bless You and Yours!!!

    Hi there, just stopped by doing some research for my Body Glove website. Can’t believe the amount of information out there. Not quite what i was looking for, but interesting page. Take care.
