So, I have started a new line for Whitney's Creations, wreaths! I can make wreaths for you for any occasion. You choose the color fabric, design, etc. I can also add handpainted letters for a saying on your wreath. Let me know what I can start working on for you. Check out my Whitney's Creations store for more custom made personalized gifts! :)

October is Here!

October is definitely here! I feel like the months are going by way too quickly. I can't seem to keep up with the racing by of time. Do you feel like time is racing by for you too?

This weekend we are having some precious friends coming into town to spend the weekend with us. They are an absolutely amazing couple, and I am so thankful for their friendship.

This month is going to be busy with friends this weekend, and then next weekend we are having a MASSIVE yard sale. So, I hope you can make it! Everything has to go! Then, we will be finishing up on renovations on the house. The plan is that we will "officially" have the house up for sale by the end of the month (sniff, sniff). It is bittersweet, but we are excited about the next journey God has for us. I will definitely bring you updates as things develop!

WHEW! Have you missed me? Jonathan and I have been traveling constantly. I think we have been in one particular city at least once a week. Now that we are both back home this week, I am hoping the traveling will become more of a minimum. I think the gas prices have been enough to make me choke! Good thing I'm a couponer. There would be no way we could balance the gas prices otherwise. Staycations are making more and more sense to me!

With football season in full swing, we have already had the chance to go to 2 different college football games. We both have a love for the game, and we enjoy being able to be a part of the game experience every chance we can get. There is such an energy being in the stadium that no other football experience can touch unless you are actually on the field.

I have added many, many new items through my Whitney's Creations Facebook page. Make sure to click on it, and check out the new products. If you do not have Facebook, send me an e-mail, and I will send you a special link with all of the pictures. I have already started taking orders for Christmas gifts! Let me know what I can get started for you. Most everything takes only 1-2 weeks! Have fun shopping! :)

Expired Coupons

If you are like me, you are very quick to throw away those expired coupons! It is so easy to sort through coupons, and throw the old ones away. Next time, spend just an extra minute, and use those expired coupons to help our military families. Military families can use expired coupons up to 6 months after they have expired. Sending a stack of expired coupons their way every month is the least we can do. So, stick those expired coupons in an envelope, and you can send those expired coupons straight to a family who could use them. You can send your coupons directly to Elizabeth Miller. She especially needs baby coupons, but uses everything! Here is her address:
Elizabeth Miller
PSC 482 Box 3021
FPO, AP 96362
I know she will appreciate any number of coupons you can send her way to help her in supporting her family! Thank you for your willingness to help!

Check out this youtube video where God is speaking through Louie Giglio. I have chills all over! This is exactly what I needed this morning. Praise God for Laminin!

August, What Happened?

I don't know how you feel, but I felt like August went in a blink of an eye! September came upon me so fast! So much for not being busy! I don't sit well at all. So, I tend to get myself busy very quickly! I'm trying to teach myself to slowdown, but I will admit that it hasn't been easy at all. Now that September is here, maybe I can do a better job at it.....hopefully.

I went to visit Mom last week, and we had some good mother/daughter time. I enjoy spending quality time with her, and I wish I could do it more often. Anyways, we went to a place called Sips n Strokes.You can sign up for a class, and with an instructor, you do a painting. We ended up painting crosses that night. I will have to take a picture of it. I have a love for painting. So, I thought it would be something unique that Mom and I could do together. We learned very quickly that we are ones for detail and perfection though! That can get anyone in trouble when painting! It was a lot of fun! Feel free to click on the Sips n Strokes link, and see if there is a Sips n Strokes near you!

Yesterday started the new catalog for Scentsy! It has all of the NEW products and scents for the Fall/Winter. If you haven't experienced Scentsy, you should definitely check out the link. There is nothing like it that comes anywhere close to matching the incredible, long lasting smell that Scentsy creates. It works just like turning on a lamp, and you can leave it on all day. You do not have to be home. It is completely safe! There is nothing like coming home to an amazing smelling home! I spent last night putting together baskets for Scentsy basket parties. What I love about the basket parties, is the ease of it! I put together a basket filled with different products to try out, catalogs, order forms, etc. I then give the basket to someone, and they will put it on a table at work somewhere. They can even plug in the warmer in the basket and try it out! Scentsy tends to sell itself so many times. So, gathering orders is a breeze. It isn't like having a catalog party and not getting to see anything. It is all right there to try out! Plus, after orders, you get free and discounted items for doing it! Scentsy is good for teacher gifts, Christmas, birthday, housewarming gifts, etc. You can't go wrong with it. Let me know if you are interested in taking a basket! I still have some available to go out in September!

Jonathan and I have been sorting through our belongings. We are hoping to have a HUGE yard sale before it gets into those cold days. We have so many wonderful things that we have been blessed with, but there are so many things that we don't use or we don't have a need for. My thinking is, there is no reason to have things so that they can sit on a shelf. If you can't put it to good use, then it needs to go to someone who will use it. There's no need in letting stuff clutter up your house! I say all of that to say.....I have done the complete opposite! I have so many things to go through, but it will be good to do a clean sweep of things. Last year we had a yard sale, and we were able to afford to buy some nice furniture for our house. It is nice when you can take things you don't use, sell it, and use the money for things you really need. I will let you know when the yard sale happens. It might be a while, but we would love for you to come see us when it happens!
