Little Red Riding Hood



I made Kate a Little Red Riding Hood cape for her Halloween costume. I followed this easy tutorial and lined it with a cute owl flannel to make it extra warm. I also thought the one in the tutorial looked a little plain from the back, so I added a ruffle to the bottom.



I can’t get enough of that sweet smile. Cheese!

I had enough fabric left to make a matching little cape for her dolly, but not enough to add a ruffle. Sorry dolly.


Jack hasn’t been feeling well at all today, but he mustered up what little energy he had to go trick-or-treating with us for a few minutes. At least we got a fun family picture with him.


Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween!

Sometimes I wish I had just kept this all to myself so I could appear more together than I really … Continue reading →

Distracted By Fear


During the IF:Gathering, the Lord showed me three specific ways that I have been allowing myself to be distracted from fully being the Woman of God and leader He has called me to be. Last week I shared how I am easily distracted by others when I allow too many voices to influence me or when I spend too much time looking at what others are doing causing me to lose sight or confidence in what God … Continue reading →
