Most of us Moms spend a great deal of time in the kitchen, so I decided to write a special verse that continually rings in my head on a dinner plate and place it in my little plate stand between my stove and sink to remind and encourage me of God's Word.
Psalm 46:10 Be STILL and KNOW that I am GOD.
Psalm 46:10 has been ringing in my ears for weeks now . . . It appears I have a new life verse!
Now, for those of you who want to know how to write on a plate . . . First use a place with a nice glaze, use a marker - I have used the dry erase markers in the past, but this time I used a black permanent Sharpie. I know, I can hear the gasps . . . PERMANENT, what if you want to change it? Well, there is this great little invention called the "Magic Erase" sponge - it works wonders and will take permanent marker right off of a glazed plate with almost zero effort (at least that has been my experience.) So, my beautiful ivory dinner plate sits on a plate stand by my "betty pick up bell" and olive oils between my sink and stove.

Yesterday I mentioned that I would take a few pictures after spring cleaning and post them. Well, here you they are:
The little project I completed yesterday is our last name above our patio doors. The letters are wooden and painted black. I used the 3M Command sticky things to attach them to the wall. I love how it turned out.
This is a picture of my desk area . . . all fresh and spring cleaned!
