I Almost Forgot…

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

I was in the shower yesterday, and realized that August is the birthday of A Dusty Frame. I almost forgot! For seven years, I’ve been sharing here. I’ve “met” some wonderful people who have prayed for me, encouraged me, cried with me, and rejoiced with me. I don’t think I knew how special my readers […]

Blast From The Past

Monday, August 26th, 2013

Last weekend, we were driving in another town and I saw a guy crossing the street. I said, “Hey that looks like your old roommate.” But I just thought he looked “kind of” like that guy. Lee said, “That IS him.” So, we turned around and tried to find him. He had stepped into a […]

Filling Our Bellies

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The last few months before baby arrived, I worked on putting meals in the freezer. My goal was 30 meals and I think I got a few more than that put away. I loved seeing all the meals stack up in the freezer. James would drool over a few of them but I said, “Don’t […]

Busy Busy

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

As you can imagine, most of the day is taken with caring for the baby. It’s crazy how much time they take isn’t it? 🙂 Of course I love all the snuggles and caring for him. He’s a very sweet little guy and I keep thanking God for letting us have him. He’s been sleeping […]

I  have been making some changes and a couple of the big ones are that I won’t be reviewing for TOS Review Crew for the foreseeable future. I am also stepping away from The Selling Sisters blog that my sister and I write. I put my Etsy shop on an extended vacation. And that’s that!

Prison Ministry~

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

On Sunday, the speaker at church was the man who leads the church’s prison ministry. I wrote about the time I considered joining the ministry here. We only stayed for the very beginning of the service since it was the first time we made it to church after baby and I needed to get home. […]

One Month

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

  One month already? It hardly seems possible. We’ve taken tons of photos. I haven’t put them in his Project Life album yet, but I have a nice pile of memorabilia and notes ready for when I have enough “oomph” to work on it. He’s definitely taken over our hearts! He’s a wonderful baby and […]

Crazy Days

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I keep thinking of things to post here but then I get busy and don’t get it done. Then I can’t remember what I was going to post. Baby is totally perfect:). I am healing but still have a way to go. Nursing is still not working but I’m pumping and getting enough for him […]

Baby Products I’m Loving!

Monday, August 5th, 2013

As you can imagine, the baby equipment world is so different than it was when James was a baby. I’ve been blessed to receive lots of wonderful hand me downs from a friend who is done with babies. We didn’t have to purchase anything big for baby. Here are a few things we’ve been using […]
