Day 7

So I've been attending daily mass for 7 consecutive days now. I feel really great...more than great. It's my favorite part of the day. It takes some crazy amount of will power for me to get up at 6 am to make it to 6:30 mass, but once I walk inside church, ahh it's this indescribable feeling. Today was pretty great because I felt very close to Mary. I prayed with her after receiving communion and asked her to make me the best woman I can be and the daughter God wants me to be. So I highly recommend daily mass if you can do it. In just a few days I can feel God working in me :)

Adoration :)

 I just wanna share that I went to Adoration yesterday and it was fantastic. I hadn't done it in a while and it was really great. We all need to spend time with the Lord. He fills us with peace and fuels us to keep moving forward as a better person. For those of you not familar, we Catholics believe that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist, the small round piece of bread that we receive in the communion at mass. Adoration is spending time in prayer with the presence of the Holy Sacrament in a church or chapel. (For more on Adoration click here.)

Anyway, if you're Catholic (and even if you're not) and have never taken the time to go and spend some alone time with the Big Guy in the form of the Blessed Sacrament I definitely invite you to do so, it's a beautiful experience. Okay this time I am out for real. God bless and have an awesome day!

Seek First the Kingdom of God

I am Miss Complain today, to no one in particular just myself, complain complain, about me being unhappy with my job, not being happy with my career status in general, goals that I've set and not accomplished. But there is no one else but myself to blame for my failures, and how can I achieve these goals if I don't constantly put them in God's hands through prayer? And God's not gonna hand all my dreams to me on a silver platter either. I have to do something about it, I can't do things with half effort and expect the Big guy to put up 80%. No that's not gonna fly. If i want things in my life to change for the better, I have to stay connected to Jesus and my mother Mary through prayer, communion, fasting, and get to work too! One of my favorite verses is burning on my forehead right about now, "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides." Mt 6:33  Let's stop complaining and get movin' with Christ!

Weekend Sewing

Well i spent a lot of time sewing this weekend. Mainly trying to finish up the quinceañera dress, because the party is next Saturday! Bad seamstress lol. I take advantage because she's my friend.My eyeballs were about to fall off last night. I was sewing some tiny white pearls and some bugle beads to the front bodice.

I truly suck at beading. Must do more of it so I can improve!

While I was working on the dress I managed to squeeze in some doggie blankets :) for my baby and for my friend's doggie. The pups loved them.
My little baby loved his blankie.

Lucy is my friend's tea-cup chihuahua. She loved her blankie too.

Lucy and Vinny had a playdate this weekend.

My Labor Day Weekend

Did a lot of sewing over the weekend, still not done with the quinceañera dress but it's getting there. I promise I will post better pics when it's done, these are just teasers haha.

Then just for fun (sarcastic...nah it was fun lol) I volunteered myself to make my little cousin's lil mermaid costume for her 7th birthday. It was worth it because she totally loved it.

Here's some more pics from the weekend. Went to the Huntington Library, loved it, they have an amazing collection of plants and flowers.

Ok that's my quick post :) Have a beautiful rest of the day and God bless.

Soon to be purchased...

So I was Etsy hopping (I love Etsy), and I found myself in trim heaven! I found some super fun trims and fabric and I had to post them...so cute, can't wait to purchase some, if not all of these goodies.

Lovee these!! Not just for V-day, but adorable all year round. To check them out click here.

Super adorable strawberry ribbon. Would look great on an apron maybe.

The cutest measuring tapes ever!!! I'm getting one of these for sure!

More fun ribbon, kinda vintagey no?

Very adorable, I probably won't get this one because I have way too many storage boxes and trinkets and I really don't need any more. Ahh but they're cute! (sewing machine spool rack)

Definitely purchasing some of this strawberry canvas fabric, oh the possibilities, hee hee.

Endless cuteness. (bow er butterfly buttons)

Love stuff with apples on it :)

Totally excited, can't wait to get these in the mail :) Off I go! 
God bless everybody.

From Today's First Reading

.."and you are Christ's; and Christ is God's."
1 Cor 3:23

now if only we lived with this in our heart each day, how much better would our life be.

So, as soon as I'm done with the dress I'm making, my sewing room is getting a make-over. I don't have any current pics, but it looks like a tornado hit it. So I was searching for some decor and storage ideas and found some cute lookin' sewing rooms.

and then when I was finding these awesome photos I ran into more pics of adorable sewing pins. 
Loveeeeee these!I'm guessing not very functional though ;)
Haha! Perfect for Christmas time.

Crunch Time

Good morning bloggies,
so last night I was up til almost midnight sewing away. I'm making a quinceañera dress and the quinceañera is in a little over 2 weeks!!! I'm in a purple taffeta nightmare lol. God please send your sewing angels to assist me :) I'll post pics later of the finished product. So have a wonderful day to whoever might read this, may God grant us a smooth and peace-filled day and may we grow in obedience and love, Amen!

Peace out!
