Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)

So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.

*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)

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

We are a jig saw puzzle family so have plenty of them around. Now instead of burning the ones with lost pieces.....I have a productive use for the left overs. Thanks for the great idea! Kay

One thing I learned in life is to love what makes you happy and to cherish every moment you spend with your family, friends or love ones because everything that we have now on earth is temporary. Well, thank you for inspiring us with your great art work.

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…
