Made With Love~Silhouette

I couldn't necessarily post these things before Christmas, now could I ;-)

I made these silhouettes for our children at preschool as a Christmas gift to their parents. I remember my teachers making one for my mother as a Mother's Day gift when I was in preschool.......oooh soooo many years ago =0/ However Technology has drastically changed the course of this invention with; photo printing ;-)

That is right NO MORE begging the children to be still, forcing them to turn their heads while shining a flash light right on them just so you can trace their shadows with out messing up! All you have to do is take their mug shot instead, lol ;-) Take a picture of your child facing side ways and then print it off onto a regular sheet of paper. Don't use your fancy photo paper and as long as your background is not dark, you don't have to even use color.

After it is printed place your photo on top of an appropriate size of black vinyl (or what ever color you choose) and then trace your child's silhouette with a pen or pencil using a justified amount of pressure. It is as simple as that! ;-) Then cut out your pattern, peel your vinyl and then place your silhouette onto a white paper. In this case I used white foam board from the dollar tree, glued red ribbon around the trim and then added a polka dotted bow as the finishing touch.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
