Two Years??!!

Can it really be two years since I started blogging? I have really enjoyed blogging even though I don't blog as much as I would like. Your comments always brighten my day :D

So, I would like you to tell me your name, how you found my blog and what are two things you want to learn how to do.

My name is Carissa. I started this blog by asking my dad if I could have a blog. He said yes and Amy, my older sister, helped me start it. Two things that I want to learn are, Cake decorating and Html code.

Now it's your turn :D

My name is Esther, and I found your blog by poking around on the computer on Bethany's and Amy's blogs. =) I can't think of anything new that I'd like to learn, but I'd like to learn to cook and sew better.

My name is Elizabeth. =) Hmm...I think I found your blog through Bethany's blog. =) Two somewhat random things I would like to learn are: how to do photography sessions in manual mode and how to make a cheesecake. =) Blessings, Carissa! Can't wait to see your BB post. =)

With Joy in our Savior,

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Pictures

National Bible Bee 2016 was so amazing, so of course I had to take lots of pictures of the week. Unfortunately, because of our internet, I am unable to upload them, I'm going to post a few on here and then give some links at the bottom of the post.

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #3

This will be the final lesson that I share from my journey in Bible Bee. While I've only shared three lessons, there were so many more that I learned.

So often I get caught up in the future - what will I be doing, where will I live, etc... In my thinking of the future, I miss the present. Life flies by so quickly, and if I spend time wishing for/dreaming about the future, I will lose the present. I'll "wake up" five years from now and regret the time that I threw away.

Every day there are so many little things that we can enjoy and give thanks for. Yet, I so easily lose sight of the present in dreaming about the future. While in Bible Bee, it was so easy to dream about Nationals that I lost study time and time with my family. Then Nationals would come, it'd be over, and I'd look back and think "why did I spend so much time dreaming about Nationals that I let myself lose study time?"

The present days are so precious. Be content with where you are. Do…
