New Sunflower Quilt and More

I haven't done a bulk update in a while. So, today, I want to do that. First, I want share the new quilt that I just finished for myself. I call it my indoor sunflower garden. 🌞 The front has big, beautiful, bright sunflowers all over it. The back has tiny sunshine printed on it. Both fabrics were purchased from Hobby Lobby, and I used 2 yards of each print. I placed polyester batting between the 2 pieces of fabric and tied them together with acrylic yarn. Afterwards, I hand stitched the binding around the quilt. This is a very easy process if you're interested in making your own hand-tied quilt.

I've also made time to update my other websites that you can find on the right side of this site. I've added new senior care advice and cinema and TV bloopers and favorite shows/movies. Please check back every Tuesday for upcoming updates to those sites. I don't update these 2 sister sites every Tuesday, but that is the day to watch for those when I do update. 

I've also created new items and placed those in my Happy Home Creations 2019 (HHC2019) Etsy shop, also found on the right side of this page with  my other sites. I'm going to start working on more new items to list shortly. 

Just so you know, I announce all of my updates in my Simply Making Life newsletter. So, if you're interested in receiving regular, monthly updates about all of my sites, please sign up to my newsletter at the top of this page. I send out my newsletter only once a month.

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d
