It seems odd to me to hear so many stories on TV of people feeling the financial "pinch" these days and being completely unaware of how to optimize what they have. I have been surprised to find that not everyone has had to pinch every penny till it screams all their lives, because so many of us have. So I thought I'd share one thing I've done to save money and fill a need that could help someone. Soooo...

For those of you who actually read my posts, you may remember one about a lesson God has taught me through little Boo. It had to do with not loosing heart and giving up in prayer, as He illustrated by baby Boo trying to get up on the sofa. She bounces off the side twice every time she wants up. It takes her three tries every time, but she doesn't give up.

Well, the bed is much taller than the sofa, so that's been very hard for her. She's just a four pound mini-mite! I looked at those doggie steps they sell for just such a need (that I always thought were ridiculous...till I got a tiny dog...). Wow! They were $50 and up PLUS tax! Not happening here! (It never would have, even before these troubled times.)

MoneySaverTip1: Dog Steps
I went to Sam's Club, (our local warehouse store), and rummaged through the empty boxes they had discarded. I found one that was just half the height from the floor to the bed. Having had dogs, I know that one narrow surface could spell injury for little Boo as she tears into the room and up on the bed. So I got two boxes.

I taped them together with strapping tape. Then I got an old towel that I use to dry wet dogs or disastrous spills on the floor and I laid it over the top so she wouldn't hit the slick box top and slide off, breaking her tiny bones! Knowing that the towel would slide off and be constant work to keep in place, I pinned it to fit the boxes and whip stitched the corners. A double rolled piece of strapping tape between the towel and box at the bottom front keeps that snug too!

Now she has a safe, no upkeep for me, launderable step up to bedtime with Mommy and Daddy and the total cost was $0 and time spent was about 10 minutes! And how is this inspirational? We are to be good stewards of all God gives us! This is not only saving money, but recycling! Praise the Lord in ALL THINGS! Have a super day!

Here's today's gift!

It's just so fun getting to know all of you! Here's a quote I received in e-mail last evening from someone who'd made a purchase:

"Ok, back to downloading… I may have to move some stuff to my external drive to make space for everything! Is that a new type of gluttony? My eyes were too big for my Hard Drive? LOL"

  • "The sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away." James 1:11

It even includes a fabulous 9.6" cluster of snails on a silver bucket, dirt, pods, berries and leaves!

Today I'm giving you another add on to this fresh and lovely kit that I just love, so you can see how sweet Meadow Life is for yourself.

Marbles_by_LynettesPhotoArt  

Marbles has two of the most stunning 12" clusters ever and 2 frames 10" & 9.3" along with 10 loose marbles $4.99 at my PayPal store. Click image to enlarge. Click Buy It Now button below the preview to purchase. Today I'm giving you a piece of the kit so you can see how extraordinary they are!

Here's a hint for adding shadows - since many of the marbles are beautifully transparent, the shadow will show through making them muddy looking. Solution - create layers so the shadow is on a separate layer then select the marbles and delete this selection from the shadow layer. Now the marble is clear again and the shadow shows where it should be! Don't forget to lock those two layers together! Here's a LO I did with the cluster:

SeasonsButtons_by_LynettesPhotoArt  

Have you noticed things have been changing here this last week?

Many of us don't like change, but there is a truth - life is change. We may not like change because it's uncertain, but it is certain that things do not stay the same, so we would be wise to learn to be flexible. As those who have given our lives to God, our stability should always rest in Him. He says He is the same yesterday, today and always. In him there is no shadow of turning. He is dependable. We will always be safe resting in Him by faith. He's promised to be with us forever, even until the ends of the earth. He's promised that nothing can separate us from His love. Safe in His arms. If you don't have that security today, you might consider taking the step of repenting of your sins and asking Jesus Christ to be your Savior, then being immersed in water baptism as the Bible commands. Then you too can rest in the ultimate security of the unchanging arms of Almighty God, both here and in eternity to come!
