Are you ready....?

Are you ready for Halloween??

Today I made a Mini Halloween Wreath for our door. :)
I've always seen them on others blogs, and even my sister creates
her own wreaths for different seasons (she lives on the mainland),
so I thought I'd give it a try. Finally. LOL!

I used cardboard and pages from a phonebook for the wreath,
cut out a couple bats from foam sheets,
and added some white, orange and black pom poms.
It's simple. And I like it.
PLUS, it didn't cost a thing since I had all the
supplies on hand! Yay! :)

This year I am making Mimi's costume. She wants to be Minnie Mouse.
That's pretty easy. As for Bub, he wants to be Ash from Pokemon.
I'm not sure if I'm gonna make his, or just buy it from the store.
Still debating on that one.

Have you made a Halloween wreath for your door?

Started putting up decorations?

Are you making your children's costumes this year?

I'd love to know! :)

Lately I've been feeling extra tired and don't have that much energy to do anything. =/
Maybe it's because I stopped my workout routine.
(I know, shame on me.) lol!

Due to feeling really tired, I haven't been sewing all that much.
I am making Mimi's Halloween costume this year,
so hopefully I get my sewing mojo back sometime soon.

Beach Day :)

Took the kids to the beach after church.
The water was a little choppy, but they still had a good time. :)
It was a beautiful day!


{ Sunday Poem }

Holy Spirit live trough me,
Come into my heart and set me free.
Make me whole, make me clean,
Into the image of my Holy King.

Through Your miracles and wonders,
I see great things.
Faith, compassion and mercy,
Only Your love can truly bring.

You sacrificed Yourself,
To set the sinner free.
You gave us all salvation,
Your face I long to see.

Lord, I pray for wisdom,
To know the things you do.
And I also pray for peace,
To be humble just like You.

Friday Faves

Friday Faves - Luna Lullaby Soothing Blankets

Today's fave are these soothing blankets by Luna Lullaby. <--- clicky link

When we went on our trip to Disneyland a few years ago, we bought these blankets for Mimi.
Ever since then, she's been attatched to them. Up to the point where if she doesn't have when she goes to sleep, she'll throw a fit. =/
We lost one awhile ago, and just recently we lost another. I think she forgot it at church.
So we have one more that is in the wash right now.

I'm trying to look for the same type of blanket that's a little more on the cheaper side.
I seen one online at Target. It's a different brand, but i'm pretty sure it's the same.
It says it's only sold online, but I wanna check out the store first.
If they don't have it, i'll probably go back to the store I bought the Luna Lullaby blankets from.

Labor Day Weekend

Hey guys!
I'm kinda late on this, but how was your Labor Day weekend?
Do anything interesting or fun?

As for us, this past weekend was our annual Okinawin Festival.
The kids didn't wanna go, so I ended up going with my mom and sister.
Good times and ono (yummy) food!

For Labor Day we didn't really do anything special.
I just took the kids to Kaka'ako Park.
We had a picnic and they rode their scooters for a bit.
Then we just layed out in the shade under a tree enjoying the time spent together.

{Made by Me} Monday

{Made by Me} Monday - Floral Headband

For the flower, I used an easy no sew tutorial HERE.
Then I just glued it onto a headband I already had.
Super easy and cute.
I love it. Maybe because I can wear it too.
Hehe.. :)

{ Sunday Poem }

Your love is the flowers,
beautiful and sweet.
Your heart is the ocean,
with it's rumble and beat.
Your eyes are the stars,
they shine so bright.
Your arms is the sunshine,
it embraces me tight.
Your tears is the rain,
it washes all away.
Your smile is the rainbow,
promising things will be okay.
