Happy New Year Readers!!!
I wish you a most blessed,healthy,bountiful new year!I know we are looking at a bleak economy through the eyes of most,but with careful planning,frugal spending and prayer,we will be ok...A few things i have decided to do a little different this year are...
1-pray more and read the bible more..Gods word is what will lead me...His words are alive and can help ,protect and lead me in the days ahead..Put God first and all the rest falls in place.
2=When the kids are here more one on one time with them.I spend a lot of time with my grands but it could be better quality time i think...
3=visit mom more often..the world is so busy and so are we but only i can slow down my life.
4-Buy all American made items.Me and hubby have agreed if at all possible to find what we need ,We buy ''MADE IN THE USA''.
5.-GET VEGGIES from the local gardeners more.
6.-have a better garden this year
8.volunteer More when i can
9.finish the bathroom ;)
10.Open up some spaces in the yard.
11.-get rid of some things,if it ain't used in 6 months-GET IT OUT!
12.start making my handcrafted items again
13.Start my own giveaways on my blog..
14.Be a better friend,should always strive to be better and better-just like Jesus!
15.Use more coupons in my weekly grocery buying.I am a little limited because we have no nearby cvs,Kmart,etc..So walmart and dollar stores have to do.But i can do better on saving.
16.Tell my family daily i love them ..
17.Keep myself in better health,i have let myself get down and feel bad a lot of the time.At 45 i know i should not feel drained all the time.I am going more natural and organic.Once more hard to get some of the things i need here,but can be done.
18.Learn how to make my own meds from nature ,creme,cough syrup,etc,
19.learn how to make and use my own,soaps,dish wash,washing powder,etc.
20.Be a better blogger! ;)
Happy new year to all of you!!!!!!!!!

nursemommy07 win this shaw! has the most beautiful shaw up for grabs!check it out...
The shawl is reversible and will keep you looking really sharp! It can be dressed up or down and I personally love it with a pair of jeans and a cami underneath. It is handcrafted from Pashmina and silk. There are so many cute ways to wear this shawl as well! That is the neatest thing to me. Wear it as a bulky scarf, a shirt, or even a throw over. The best part for a woman that loves color like me is that it comes in 110 different colors!
Nimli is kind enough to offer one of my readers their very own pashmina shawl in the beautiful pearl color! This color goes so perfectly with just about anything.
Just look what the soothie ranch has for you!!

thenotsoblog win Bandeez
From the website: "LemonHead Apparel was founded out of sheer frustration with the hair accessories we were purchasing for our children. Our little two-year-old loved taking her hair clips out and apart during nap-time, her favorite was pulling the embellishments off and peeling the decorative ribbon from the metal clip - IT WAS GETTING EXPENSIVE AND JUST HAD TO STOP!!!We couldn't find a structurally sound clip that stayed in our daughter's fine hair, so after months of trial and error we finally came up with a clip she couldn't destroy and stayed put. Voilà, Clipeez were born!!"
And soon after, Bandeez, a non-slip, fully adjustable headband joined the product line. The accessory line has become so popular that she now employs 14 stay at home Moms!
