Cricut Design-ASAP always stop and pray

 


Our church is having our annual bazaar starting on Friday and I decided to make a sign for them to sell using my Cricut machine.

It was a lot of fun making it and hopefully it will bring in a few dollars for church.

The following is a picture series of how I made it. 

This is the end design on my computer in Cricut Design Space.


I painted the board. It was an orangey color-stained.

This is the stencil that I made on the Cricut machine, it is ready to paint.

I first painted the background color to seal the edges of the stencil.

Then did two coats of black paint.


And the end result. Now I just need to spray on a clear coat of paint and put a hanger thing on the back and it is ready to go!!!

Fun and easy project and I have many more in my thoughts to make!!!

Enjoy the earth my friends!!!

Defending the Unborn children

I know there are many who do not agree with my PROLIFE stand. But the senseless deaths of thousands of unborn children on a daily basis makes no sense to me. As easy as it is to prevent pregnancy there should be no need for abortion. I wrote to our senators a few months ago concerning this. Here is one reply I got back and my letter back to him, Senator Ron Wyden. His reply did not surprise me whatsoever. I know where they stand!!
Just know this, I stand and will fight for the rights of our unborn citizens.

ABORTION DOES NOT EMPOWER WOMEN, IT DESTROYS THEM.

Dear Martha:
Thank you for taking the time to let me know your views on the subject of abortion. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
In my opinion, the core element of the debate around abortion in this country is the fundamental right of all Americans to privacy. The decision to have an abortion is one of the most personal medical choices a woman can face, and it is a decision that should not be made by the government. A woman's health care decisions are between her and her doctor, so politics and lawmakers in Washington should not drive these important medical decisions.
In addition to privacy, I strongly believe in providing everyone the resources to reduce unintended pregnancy. That is why I have cosponsored legislation that would expand access to preventive health care services that help reduce unplanned pregnancy, reduce the number of abortions, and improve access to women's health care overall.
While we may disagree on this issue, I am sure there are many others that we do agree on. Thank you for keeping me apprised of the issues that are important to you. If I may be of assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely,
Ron Wyden
United States Senator
MY RESPONSE BACK TO SENATOR WYDEN
I’m going to remind you of the words of our Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness".

YOUR POLITICS go against science that has proven life begins at conception. YOUR POLITICS deny the rights of the unborn children YOUR POLITICS support the brutal murders of over 2000 children a day in the United States. YOUR POLITICS want to spread the death rate to other countries.
So your reasoning doesn’t hold water.

Killing innocent children is wrong. Killing innocent children is murder. And murder is illegal.
It seems you and your politics choose to allow this viscous attack on children to continue so you can continue to get votes.
Sad and seriously sickening.
This is not health care. It is premeditated murder plain and simple.
Our world is truly disintegrating in hopelessness and evil.
I’m sorry you can’t see the damage you’re doing.

I will continue to fight for the rights of the unwanted, the unborn, the “misfits”. How will you help?
Sincerely
Martha Briese RN

WHAT CAN WE DO TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AND REALLY, WOMEN AND THE FAMILY?

WRITE TO THE PRESIDENT, WRITE TO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, STAND UP FOR THE WEAK, THE PEOPLE WITHOUT A VOICE, THE UNBORN, THE "UNPERFECT".

SOME COUNTRIES THINK NOTHING OF KILLING ALL DOWN SYNDROME CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT "PERFECT"

WHEN YOU DEHUMANIZE A POPULATION OF PEOPLE TO JUSTIFY THEIR MURDERS AND MISTREATMENT, YOU OPEN UP THE ABILITY FOR THOSE WHO ARE FACILITATING THESE ACTIONS TO GROW AND EXPAND THE BRUTALITY BEYOND THE BORDERS OF THE BASIC DIGNITY OF HUMAN LIFE.

Miniature Making-Little houses and scenes to create!!!



I've been having fun putting some miniatures together. Some come in kit form with all the parts and the gray couch and accessories I have been putting together from things around the house.


Below is the tin that the above scene lives in. This is before construction!!!





This Pink House if for my granddaughter. She is 8 years old and those are her lego people!!! They fit perfectly. I just have the bedroom and bathroom to make and then it is all hers.



Plant made from a used tin pan!!! Some paint and a plastic lid and there you go, a houseplant.


A pair of glasses with lenses made from clear fingernail polish.


I did not make the dog or the cat, but I made everything else from scratch. I am still working on the floor and window and need to make some sheers for the window.

My goal now is to finish the Pink House and the little living room scene with the gray couch. Then I can begin another tin can scene, this one will be a street sceen in Paris.

After that, I will be getting a little Christmas living room scene. That will be a lot of fun!!!

Hope you are all well and learning something new!!
Martha

The Flower Bed re-do


Lets talk, overgrown stuff!!! Oh my goodness. What a job. I can see this from my kitchen window and finally I decided to tackle it. First, cut back the suckers from a stump of a tree that was cut down years ago, edge and redo the rocks a bit and dig out the stump.


You could not even see the bird feeders!!!! WOWZA, I had ignored this spot far too long.



And then dig and saw the roots out!!! That was difficult!!! I can honestly say that was tough but it is now done and the bed is planted and hopefully the remaining roots do not grow back.



 This is now on the burn pile!!! No more suckers to trim back year after year after year after year.




I still have more re-edging to do but that will be after I finish working in the vegetable garden.


Enjoy the earth my friends and until later, May Our Dear Lord keep you safe and Bless you and your family.

The Norblad Hotel in Astoria Oregon

 


We went to Astoria this week to clean the family graves and put new flowers out. So I decided we needed to stay in one of the historical hotels, the Norblad Hotel. It is downtown, so easy to walk to eaterys and see what the downtown offers. It was very cool.

Some of their rooms share the communal bathrooms/showers and some have private. We got a room with a private bath.



We could see the top of the Astoria Column from our room!!! Very cool!!!



We took a walk after dinner into downtown just to look in the windows and give me time to remember the good old days when I was much younger.


This is the Liberty Theatre. I have many fond memories of many movies there as a young child all the way through high school!!!


Below are views from our room!!! 


Notice the barrels in the windows above??????? Fort George Brewery is across the street. They have beer and food, the perfect combination for a lovely visit to Astoria.



This is our room below, great views and a hanging chair!!! So fun!!! And one more thing they had was record players to borrow and lots of albums to choose from!!! That was fun too. We listened to music in the evening while just lounging, so needed!!!




💓ASTORIA AND THE COLUMBIA RIVER💓


Below is our work at the cemetery!!






It was a good quick trip to home and I really look forward to the next time we go. If you have a chance to check out the Norblad, do so, they are very kind  and courteous there!!!


Till we meet again, martha

PRO-CHOICE=PRO-ABORTION

 There is no doubt that pro-choice is equal to pro-abortion.

Advocates of pro-choice hold on to the belief of:

my body-my choice

They totally ignore the fact

that there are two bodies!

turning your back on the truth does not change the outcome

saying you are prochoice and saying that means that no matter what your personal feelings or beliefs about abortion are, you understand it is not your place to make a decison for another woman about what she can and can't do with her body is a cop out.

they turn their back on the millions of children who are brutally murdered from abortion

this is not how you support women

this is not how you support mothers

this is not how you support the family

this is not how you support children

this is not how you support the human race


You can be a Woman and a supporter of WOMEN AND PROLIFE!!!

Feminists For Life

There is hope if we work together.


But killing innocent children is not the answer.
