|Our "Advent Tree" for our |
Truth in the Tinsel ornaments
We, like everyone this time of year, will be extra busy, busy, busy but my prayer is to take it as slow as possible and always remember that Jesus is the reason for this wonderful season! I want to share that truth with my kids each Christmas season so here at home Anna and I are going to be doing the Truth in the Tinsel Advent Experience. I actually plan to use the smaller, 6 foot skinny tree for the ornaments Anna and I make from Truth in the Tinsel. I hung a felt advent board for the daily countdown up beside that one. I'm really excited to do this together.
I have about 90% of my supplies bought for that because I figure if I organize it all through the month of November and have it all ready, I'll be more likely to do it! I also got the quick ornament coloring sheets for those days that making the actual adornment isn't possible. This is our first year and I hope to find some time to blog about our experience. We will see about that...
I also have some more exciting news and while it isn't my first time being published, this is my first time being published on another blog besides my own!! A post of mine will be on MOPS International's blog, Hello Darling! Check back on December 3rd when it goes live on their blog!
back when I had a Facebook) showed that MOPS had a call for December blog submissions I thought, "What the heck?! It's nap time and I have a few minutes; I'll check it out." I typed up the piece, emailed it and about a month later I got an email back telling me that my post was chosen! How cool is that? I think it's pretty neat.
Now, this ain't no fancy, award winning piece. Ha! I am fully aware of that fact. It's just quirky and fun and silly! But, I stepped out, being brave, and that little shot of bravery paid off! Not really, they don't pay out, Ha! But, they have over 140,000 subscribers and 70,000 Facebook fans and they will post it on Pinterest, Facebook and of course their blog along with a snippet about me and a link back to this little ole Thankfully Blessed blog! I am thankful for nudges from God and bravery! :)
