So many ideas so little time!!!

Ever get excited about starting a new project? Then weeks come across an awesome pattern and you decided to start it just to see how it looks? Then a few days later you're at the yarn store and you come across this beautiful skein of yarn that you have to make it into something beautiful?
Before you know it, you're surrounded by half finished projects.
This is what I call my WIP ADD= Work In Progress ADD. 
I have so many ideas and I get easily distracted. 
Don't get me wrong there are times when I don't move from my couch all day and can't hear anything when I'm working on a new pattern. 
My husband will leave in the morning and I am just starting a foundation chain. He comes home and I am counting the chains between tr shells. He says "Hey babe" and I say "3,4,5." 
Hahaha. You know what I'm talking about!!

So how do I focus on one project at a time? How do I decided which to finish and which to put to the side? Well if I'm making something for someone I usually try to get that done before touching anything else. However if I'm just randomly making something because I love the pattern...its hard not to get distracted. 

So what do you do? Do you have WIP ADD? Share with me. I'd love to hear from you.

Here are a few pics of some of my WIPs:

Blanket for baby

Endless Granny Square Throw

This was going to be a flower halter top

But it didn't work out

So I started a new pattern

A pineapple tank top

Booties for baby

Baby beanie for a friend

What do you guys think? Let me know. Hopefully I will have some finish pictures for you all in a few weeks.

Have a great week! Be blessed!! Love to create!!

The Gift

Hello Loves!

I think we forget how lucky we are as women!
We get to be apart of the amazing gift of bringing another human into the world. 

Made through love, this little being comes into our lives and is totally dependent on us. 
To them we are their world...they look to us for love, warmth, food, guidance. They only know how to love us, despite what we think of ourselves, all they know is that we are theirs. 
They developed within us...their lives depended on our lives.

This is truly a gift that the Lord has given us. Think about how strong we are to have an actual human being growing inside of us, becoming their own person. 
Sometimes we don't always make it through...sometimes we suffer a loss but we never give up. 
How strong are we that we can try again. Whether we make it through the first time or this is our second, third time, we give our bodies over to the gift of carrying another. 
Whatever fear we may have will not stop us, what ever obstacles we may face will not deter us.

As I enter into my 30th week of pregnancy and feel the movements of my son, I become overwhelmed with joy of being blessed by the Lord with this gift. I thank Him for allowing me to be apart of something truly amazing.

We have been given the gift of motherhood, rebirth but remember the world was given the gift of women. 
Know that you are a gift, live like you are special because you are. We are important! We are here to love, nurture, support and to live life beyond ourselves.

Me at 28 weeks
