New Web Site

I want everyone to see my new blog and new web site so I am listing it. My Home Staging has taken off, taken off slowly but God is showing me to lean on Him and He'll do the rest!! I am in the middle of staging a home in Norcross, Ga that is completely empty..a complete empty palate that will sell when I put my touch on it! Staging is an illusion, its what you want the buyer to see when they come into the house. You don't want them to see your personal items you want them to see what they envision!

So I need you all to walk with me on this journey and when you do you will find that through your prayers and always quoting Isaiah 40:31 "But those that wait upon the Lord will get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind. Do you Feel Like a Lowly Worm? (The Message Bible)

God has been showing me this scripture over and over. Unless we renew our strength through Him...we will fail...I refuse to fail. My husband is falling apart because of me that I am not "working"...he doesn't want me to work on this certification He wants it NOW!! He is being attacked and because of this He is attacking I daily plead the blood over my apt and move on...the enemy cannot have my husband nor can he have my family or me! This time in our world is hard but we've been through worse, so pray that we can over come and persevere...Pray for my new career and that God blesses me over and over! Thank you for reading and thank you for looing at me new site...

Love you all,

Also please use for my Home Staging

The U.S. is it free anymore???

I'm getting so tired of turning on the tv and everything I see is bad what should I do turn it off?! Well I do that too but think about it...we need to see what the United States of America is coming to....less than 35 miles from me at Lake Altoona, GA people are now living in tents because they are unemployed! Couples, men and woman like you and me are living in tents with children that used to go to a school in a neighborhood because their Mom or Dad had a job, and now they don't!!

Is this the United States or is this a 3rd world country? Over 1.8 trillion dollars are being spent on nationalizing health care. In the next day or two a vote in the house will determine how bankrupt this country is going to be....think about it, we are going to bankrupt this nation with insurance that will be like Canada and England. I lived in England remember? If people had an important health issue there was a waiting list, it isn't free in the end! Why am I bringing this up? Because we will spend the money on this, 68% of the people surveyed do not want government to make their choices in life. Government wants to do this but they don't want to help our children live in homes, help their parents get a job, eliminate the recession with real jobs not just jobs that will help the highways or construction or make jobs that you have to go back to school!! That isn't creating thats doing it the way the President wants it done!

If we don't start praying for our nation and this man who we voted into that job because a bunch of people thought he was the second coming, then we are going to see this land disappear for the way we knew it! I may be standing on my soap box but I'm so angry at this that I just wanted to talk about it.

I have more experience in my little finger for jobs that I go and interview for and who gets them? Kids out of HS or kids in college or kids who just graduated college! What is happening! Do you want "children" to help you or do you want people who are in their prime? I don't get it anymore, I need help understanding that this country we came to from England back in June of 1968, this country that I call home....where is it....why are so many of our citizens leaving it to move to other countries?

"Lord, we need your help with our children, we need help with our land, we need your help with our President, we know you have a plan and we don't see it right now but Father if we don't cry out to You for our land then it will no longer be ours and Your ears will be silent....."

God Bless you all and God Bless the United States of America

My new biz opp so plz read! :-)

What happens most of the time when people introduce a biz opportunity..well they scatter, right? Well this is not the usual one. It is exciting and I want to tell you about it. PPL or Pre Paid Legal with Identity Theft Shield is something we all need. Answer these questions: Do you have a spouse? Have children? Children at home? Or teenage drivers? And who has college-age students? How many don't yet have a will? I have now created a need for all of you who have answered these questions.
  • Pre-Paid Legal is a preventive legal service that covers an abundant amount of things that would cost you thousands of dollars if paid by the hour. It covers legal consultation and advice. Call an attorney for legal advice on everyday issues as well as important decisions, without any bill in the mail.
  • Letters and Phone calls, get a letter written or a phone call made on your behalf for any subject matter.
  • Contract & Document review. Your provider law firm will review an unlimited number of personal documents for you, up to 10 pages each.
  • WILL Preparation, your membership provides you with a standard will that meets most American's needs with yearly reviews and updates at no added charge.
  • Motor Vehicle Legal Services, your provider law firm will assist you or your covered family members with moving traffic violations at no add'l cost to you. Also up to 2.5 hrs for help with damage recovery service, driver's license assistance, personal injury legal expenses.
  • Trial Defense Services, up to 60 hrs of attorney time, of those hours 16.0 hrs may be used for all legal services rendered in defense of the covered suit prior to actual trial.
  • IRS Audit Legal Services, up to 50 hrs of attorney time.
  • When you call your provider law firm they will call back within 4 hrs. Day or night, guaranteed!
With all that legal help we also add on Identity theft protection. Not only a free credit report as other sites tell you but if anything illegal is happening to your identity we will immediately contact you. That is called continuous monitoring, which is essential to discovering if your credit file has been accessed to open new accounts, if late payment notations are added, or collection notices have been filed. If not initiated by you, any of these actions can indicate a potential identity theft. I joined for this reason only! I was one of those victims of identity theft. Also Identify restoration. That means that licensed investigators will work to correct damages caused by identity theft. FYI: If someone steals your identity and no actions is taken you can have serious problems when you try to get a loan, a credit card, or during other types of financial transactions.

All of this for $26.95 a month, and there is no contract to sign, it is month to month. So if you don't think this is right for you, cancel!! The opportunity is great especially in this day and age of constant stealing our identity and when we need legal help and can't afford it!

Now I not only want to give you this product but I also offer a great opp for you to make money and if you want to do what I am doing it won't cost you anything. I don't want to sound like a salesperson at all, but I will pay for the $49 to sign up to have a biz and make money by selling the PPL and Identity Theft package. I am not a stupid woman and I don't sell anything I don't believe in so think about it and if you need any questions answered please contact me by email love you all and I wish you all well..please visit the web site also at

God Bless

Happy July 4th with fabric!

July 4th fabric & vintage looks

I wanted to type a quick post on July 4th. There are so many things out there displaying the hoilday. The tacky looks, the flags hanging from the homes, the quilts that cover our beds and all the crazy items we carry to the picnics.

I wasn't sure how to approach this post since I hate wearing a "Martha Washington" costume or looking like my house is draped in massive amounts of crazy red, white and blue! So I found what I think are classic looks from the American past, and what I believe inspires us.

This is a stunning example of workmanship. I actually was surfing online and found this under July 4th, I have no history on it, yet I do know it is probably authentic and was probably pieced together in the late 1800's. Many items were done back then with fabric pieced so carefully to survive hundreds of years later. I just was very inspired by it. The piece screams patriotism!

I then went and found various ways to use fabric in a patriotic way, not necessarily displaying the "screaming at you July 4th", but in a way that you can tell, very patriotic.1204359934178080_1
So I may not have found the perfect July 4th look to wear and I have never made that perfect inspirational outfit either, but I did find items that inspire me. They will always be "Fashion News" in their own way. I'm sure if the pioneers ever saw our posts they would say, "Every item in our closet and on our beds are refashioned, we take fabric from everywhere and make treasures".

So Happy 4th of July for all of us whether we are Americans, Brits, from New Zealand, or Australia. We are all free and that is what the hoilday means. Have a wonderful day refashioning every look you see!

I also wanted all of us to remember that God is in complete control of our country and in these times of economic difficulties, HE IS IN CONTROL!!! It's been hard for me since I lost my job but I also have to believe the job Jesus wants me to have is there! So God Bless America and we need to continue to pray for this country!
Love Donna

Art in Quilting! A great way to make a treasure..

I have been quilting for a long time and I know its ART!! It doesn't have to be a landscape, a portrait, etc. If you design in art or in sewing, you are an artist. So I am listing a pattern for a Star Quilt..a perfect beginner quilting pattern..say that 3 times!!

Okay, when someone looks at a quilting pattern they usually say, "I CAN'T DO THAT!!" First you need to say, "Yes I can.." This pattern was done by me when I raised my youngest, a set of twins, back in '93 thru '97. I was an avid quilter. I would quilt from morning until night, well at least when the twins were asleep. I sold them and believe me, I never received enough for them.

For this quilt I made it as a crib blanket and I made a baby pillow. I am giving you a brief pattern so you can get a taste of what you need and then open the file for the rest.

You literally cut pieces of material from other pieces of material either used in a quilt or from sewing a dress, baby clothing, etc. I just thought this was great because it is perfect for July 4th..
To assemble it you will use a combination of half-square triangle unit squares & pieced sashing. Easy, easy! You'll need for the Large Star tips, 9 dark fabrics 3 x 9 each. For the small star tips, 16 dark 2 x 6. A light background of fabric 1 1/8 yd. For the dark sashing 3/8 yd. Red sashing 1/2 yd. You'll also need 2 2/3 yd of backing. A 48 x 48 piece of batting and 170" length of binding.

I'm going to layout the pattern in pictures and if you want a detailed pattern I am listing a file at the bottom of the page.This is another one of my eco-friendly ways of saving the world of discarded fabric!! Enjoy and don't be afraid of quilting anymore....

Life can be so hard....

I am having such a hard time with my children, the twins, they are now 15 and I cannot control them whatsoever. It's amazing how these children were so easy until they started HS and then they turned. I wrote to many of you on your blogs and asked for prayer for them. My Dad offered to give us a house on his ranch in Bandera, TX. Free rent, free overhead, etc. He is doing this because he feels God has told him to offer us this due to my lack of no job, no money and Mike's social security. Well my kids are not cooperating and told me on no uncertain terms, "we are not going"! from my knowing the Bible it says in Ephes 5 says "children obey your parents" doesn't it? Also if they don't submit to us how are they ever going to submit to God now or in the future? How are they going to submit to their husbands in the future? I am in tears trying to make them understand that we are their parents, we make the decisions.

I have given this over to the Lord over and over. I have asked the Holy Spirit to intervene and when I do, it does calm down. I have told them that no decision has been made to move until we go there to see the ranch. I told them they are a part of the family but if we want this and you guys don't, we have to make the decision. I believe in kids having a say, but I don't believe that whatever they say is what will happen. My husband came over to me and hugged me and told me he didn't want me to cry. I said "I will only do what God wants us to do, not my will but His, if it's wrong, there will be obstacles in the way" He said he could see that, but he has spoiled them so bad...but the Bible has been my refuge and a lot of praying. My girls can make friends anywhere but if God wants us to do something, nothing will stop it from happening! I want to share with all of you what God gave me in my daily:
"Come to Me with open hands and an open heart, ready to receive my abundant blessings. ( which is hard for my husband to do) I know your neediness. Your life-path has been difficult (to say the least), draining you of strength. Come to me with nurture. Let me fill you with My Presence: I in you, and you in Me" Isaiah 40:29-31

Praise God! ...."He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power....Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weary." This is my prayer for my family and I ask that all of you keep me in your prayers for the battle that I am enduring right now with my girls and my husband. I so long for peace and I pray for that daily!

I love you all
