So I am about to go figure out the winner of the photo contest, and we will continue the challenges I have been doing when my life settles down a bit, but I thought this would be fun!
DESIGN MY BLOG!
Make a design that you think I would like then post it on your blog and give me the link! Then I will pick a winner and put it on my blog for up to a week, and have a button on my side bar telling where I got the design! So go ahead and try! Here are somethings I like!
I love cursive and blog fonts, peach and green colors, white back grounds are my fav.
Morgan is doing well today! He was wagging his tail and can move his head around, but he is still paralyzed in the legs, but he was trying to support his wait. He was also so happy! And all the nurses at the vet love him :) He is so precious!
If you have a shop I would LOVE to review something from it! You will get a big blog post done about the product then an etsy button/link (I can make it if you can't!) on my side bar for 3 months! You can leave a comment or an email if you are interested!!!
We keep thinking he is doing good, then the doctor says he is doing bad :( GRRR!!! It is so... Well it is hard not knowing and going up and down! Thanks for all your prayers and I hope y'all will keep praying (we may have to put him to sleep Monday :'(
Just want to say I love you Morgan! And even though it has been crazy, I am glad we found you!
So sorry for the tons of posting when I am supposed to be taking a break... Anyway! Morgan may have Tick Peralysis (however you spell it!) So it could go eather way... It could kill him or he could live... (yesterday we picked 30+ ticks :( Pour puppy) So just wanted to update y'all a little more!
Morgan is not doing well... we took him to the vet last night for them to keep and the vet's assistant did not think it looked real good, but we just didn't know! So this morning we called and... he is in a lot of pain and not doing well.... needless to day we all have tear stained eyes... we are still praying and the vet is going to see him... Please pray!!! He is SOOOO precise!
So Mama had to bring him (Morgan is a dog my dad found in the woods check the last post to understand) home, and he is the most sweet, bitten up, puppyyou have ever met!!! He had maggots all over his stomach, and his stomach is raw :(, but he is so sweet! And is such a trooper! We had to turn him this way and that had to clean the maggots off, take all the ticks out of his ears, clean out his nose so he could breath ETC. LOVE HIM!!!
But please keep praying! We have not taken him to the vet yet, and I don't know what he will say :(
PS He is also horse (as in can't talk with out a scrachy voice :(
Daddy was out (in his job) and found a dog in the woods :( He is in really bad shape. He shared lunch with "Morgan" What Daddy started calling him :) That was yesterday so today he went back and decided we needed to take him to the vet. So Mama went to pick him up and we are waiting to here if he will even make it :( We may have to put it to sleep... So please pray that Morgan will be okay! I would really apriciate your prayers! And don't worry I will tell you what happens!!!
PS He is about a 1 year old black lab so he would fit right in with out family ;)
First I HATE BLOGGERS NEW LOOK! (You can't see it out there but making a post or on your dash bourd you can) making a post is like going on Microsoft Word! :( I do not like the cone of shame... Oh sorry! I mean I do not like bloggers new look...
SO now that I have that out I want to say I am taking a break! For a week.... sound good? And then I will start blogging again and start everything back... k? You can still order blog designs or whatever I will just take me a little longer than normal... So everyone have a good week!!!
BUT guess what? She needs 20 followers so I can sponsor her... SOOOO my wonderful, awesome, epic, followers who would like to follow her? Give her some support!!!! (and then you can enter the giveaway I am going to sponsor :) SO go follow her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So a couple people (GodsGirlz1 and Ashely to be exact ;) have asked me to show them how to design a blog! So it is really easy! All you need is a little imagination and paint! (like the computer paint if you don't have that it is ok there are other options)
So go to paint and make your page the size of your header. Then go and put your blog name and all the curlie cues you want etc. Like this NOTE: If you do not have paint try picmonkey.com
Now save to your computor under a name you will remember!
Now for blogger: So now go to your blogger and go to design. Then where it says your blog name (the top square) you click on EDIT then load your image then when it is loaded (picture will come up when it is loaded) you press save. That is how to make a header! If you want a back ground what you do is go to paint and make you solid back ground like this
I wanted mine white :) So save that and go to design. then under the word design you will see thees pages :Page Elements, Edit HTML, Template Designer. Go to Template Designer and press back ground. Then go to add an image and upload your image. If the measurements are not excactly right and half the header is over here go to udjust withs and change it around (slowly though! You don't want to mess something up!) And there you have it!!!
Now for Word Press: You want to make your back ground and header the same but I don't know how to put it on a Word Press, so mess around a little to try to figure out!!!
There you go! If you mess up really bad ask me and I will try to help you out! But you can do this!!!
GIVEAWAY WINNERS!!! I am so sorry I did not put how to contact me! Email me at
Yesterday was my Daddy's birthday (as I mentioned yesterday) so we had a fun day (well pretty much) Daddy had a head ache (he has migraines so he gets them kinda often and they hurt him really bad :()
So for his birthday I made 2 pizzas (with a little help from Beth *little sister* ;) and a (from scratch may I mention!) Chocolate sheet cake. It was really good if I do say so my self! ;) so we had supper and a movie. Can it get better? It did! We got to stay up late too! It was only till 11 (I say only because us girls like to stay up LATE and I mean LATE!) But at 10:30 it felt like 12:30 (I don't know why!!!) So we went to bed....
Today is Saturday... I love Saturday... projects you have been dreaming about doing all week getting put of to Saturday... little shopping trips... sleeping in late... blogging... listening to Edventures in Oddessy... and just doing whatever...
So can you tell I like Saturday?! I do! SOOOOO........ any way! I hope y'all have a great day!
It is perfect... 100 followers (OH MY GOODNESS!!!!), 300 301 posts, awesome followers, staying up late, fun with my dad's birthday, (happy birthday daddy!!!! Love you!!!) good new movie, home made pizza, and saying epic (okay I have not said epic much today :( Wow 100 followers! WOW WOW WOW, wait!!! Don't unfollow me!!! Y'all always do that right after a big number (like 70, 90 etc.) So please be nice :( What did I do to you ;) LOL
I don't know what to post about so I am going to do a random post, because they are awesome. epic even. i am being weired. do you agree. why am i using all periods. and why am i not capitalizing. i am spelling all the words wrong. Okay, sorry! Odd moment!!! I am going to make an about page, then I am going to post it and post it as a post...
Y'all have been so supportive of my last post! I was so happy to see a lot of you girls signing your name with a verse and stuff! Y'all are so awesome :) So I am going to be busy tomorrow so I thought I would go on and give you tomorrows challenge (since today's was easy ;) So day 2!
2. Don't take God's name in Vain
For some of y'all this will be hard or maybe easy.
What exactly is this you ask? It is not using God's name in respect. How often have you said,"Oh my God!" or "Oh my Gosh!" or just put OMG in a blog post? This is using God's (remember HE is our Creator, God, Great physician, support, EVERYTHING) name for an expression. That don't sound right! HIS name deserves respect! Who is with me? So it may be kinda hard to change your habit, but this is kinda serious, (it is even one of the 10 commandment).
So maybe try to do this. I know in our house taking God's name in vain is an "ugly word!". So lets be respectful to God! Tell me what you think! Will you try this?
So I am a Baptist, I will just tell y'all! I believe God's Son, Jesus, came to earth as a man (but still God), and died on the cross to save us from our sins, and then arose, defeating death the 3rd day. Same view point anyone? But sometimes do we show people we are Christians? So your answer may be, "YES! Of course I do? Are you a nut?" well yes I am a nut, but I don't think I show it enough! So everyday I am going to post something to show people we are Christians.
This is not going to be always easy! but we are going to do it!!! So I am going to give you the first challenge (they will get harder ;)
1. Be a witness online
at the end of a comment or a post about anything try ending a post maybe something like this
XOXO, (however you end the post)
I thought this one was cool ;)
LOL (love our Lord),
Or leave your favorite verse like
What do y'all think? This is very easy! Just leave them at the end of comments, emails, blog posts anything! Easy right?
So if you want to join this challenge with me go ahead! Comment and tell me about it!
1. Introduce yourself a little bit for those dropping by from the link up...
I am a 13 year old nut who loves her dog and making stuff (and being lazy and blog designing ;)
2. Maybe share a picture of yourself? (optional)
Don't have one right now :(
3. What are your favorite colors to wear during the spring?
I usually just wear my normal colors!
4. Favorite accessories to wear?
Flats (or heels ;) and necklaces!
5. Hats? What's your opinions of them? What style do you like best? Are baseball caps unfeminine?
I love hats! But they don't look good on me! I think baseball caps are unfeminine but they come in handy sometimes! 6. Where you live, what are the first signs that Spring is coming?
Green leaves :) 7. What is a normal Spring activity in your house?
CLEANING! 8. What are you looking forward to this upcoming Spring/Summer?
VACATION and getting out school!!! YAY!
9. Are you planning on taking any trips?
Vacation to the beach :) 10. Will you be involved in some sort of volunteer work this year?
My mom might volentere me for something, but probebly not much...
11. Do you plan on doing something different this year than in 2011?
I would really like to try to spend more time outside and set a goal for how many books to read this summer.
12. If you were driving a convertible on a breezy, warm day what music would be playing on your radio?
13. Is there any book or movies you want to read/see this spring/summer?
The rest of the Millie Kieth in a life of faith seriese (I just have to left but don't have them!!! can anyone loan them to me?!?!?!)
14. Complete this sentence...please. "A Spring day is perfect with--"
...with no school :) Ahhh...
15. Have you turned on your AC yet?
OH MY YES!
16. What smell brings past spring memories to you?
There is somthing about the sunshine and air in spring that reminds me of when I was "little" getting ready for church :)
17. During the warmer months of the year, do you tend to hole yourself up inside, or get out and enjoy the weather?
18.Please, take a look around our Etsy shops. Is there anyway we can improve to make our 19. shops stand out and make a better appeal?
I think Grace should add more stuff!
20. In marketing- do you think it is important for a blog and Etsy to, somewhat, match?
Maybe a little...
21.Like blog buttons, would you share a button linked to an Etsy shop that you like?
So sometimes you may feel discouraged about your blog, or want to do something with your blog! Ya know the feeling? So What I am going to do is give myself a new blog design, scedual a once a week post and then do a big blog post! K?
So I told y'all yesturday I was going caping, right? Well I have had the most fun time ever!!!

(that is usually how you start) Then when we got here we put up our tent and made a fire (I <3 fire ;) LOL) Then we had Hot Dogs and Rosted Marshmallows (BEST SUPPER EVAH!) *I ment to spell ever that way ;)* Then we had a fun time sleeping out side, we talked, but mainly laughed!!! Then we ate a whole bag of chips and 2 cans of coke (my Dad sister and I) then went to bed.
This morning we woke up at 7, got up, ate breakfast (pop tarts!!!), and got ready to fish!!! We went out to fish at 8:30 and Beth caght a fish right away! Then Daddy cought a fish right after that... *3 hours later* Daddy catches another fish and we leave. Yep! I caught 100% of NOTHING!!!!! PATHETIC! ;)

Happy Easter y'all! Yesterday we went to an Easter play at a friends church. It was lots of fun! Then this morning we went to Sun Rise Service at a Church near by (y'all may be wondering why we did not go to our church, well our church and the Methodos Church across the road swap sun rise services, like this Easter we went over there, next Easter we will go to our Church etc.) My Friend, Tori <3, was there and she made her won Easter dress too! So it was really fun to finally get to see each others Easter dresses (after talking about them for SO long ;)
So after singing, there was a small sermon, then we went to the back and had dough nuts and fellow shipped. It was lots of fun :)
First of all, thanks Emma, for allowing me to guest post. :)
I'm Grace, a teenager in the the "middle" of my teen years. I love Jesus Christ with all my heart, and am so thankful that on this day 2000-something years ago died to save my life. I blog at thatsmilingblog.blogspot.com, And, I'm the second oldest to any-day-now 7 children. :D
Today is Good Friday (or depending on when this is posted, it could be yesterday), so I thought I might write about Jesus dying on the cross, while focusing on one verse in particular that caught my eye, and just learned about recently.
I think it's safe to say that most or even everyone has heard about Jesus dying on the cross. He was denied by Peter, beaten by Pilate, and nailed to a cross. But what did he say on the cross? This really stood out to me, because I have never in my entire life even heard of it before last month.
John 19:28 (ESV) - After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), "I thirst."
Now, on this day, you have to remember that he hasn't had anything to drink during his beatings. He never even asked for a drink, so naturally, like any human being, it's safe to say that by the end of the day, he's thirsty. But, if you really think about it deeply, he didn't have his time with God that morning, either.
In Psalm 42:2, it says. . .
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
Or even Psalm 143:6. . .
I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.
When Jesus said "I thirst." he surely meant it physically, but I think even-more-so spiritually. He felt deprived, he felt weakened, for he did not spend time with his father that day.
We as followers of Christ need to spend time with him each day. I've found that when I don't, I'm weaker physically and emotionally that day. I thirst. He states so many times in this beautiful book that we are to spend time with him. He is living water (John 4:13-14), he is the bread (Deuteronomy 8:3) that we partake of, he is our God.
I hope everyone have a lovely Easter weekend, and that we don't forget His undying love for us!
*Thanks so much Grace for doing this post! I loved it!!! Go follow her blog!
I am so sorry y'all for not posting in a while, but it is actually good I have not spent much time on the computer! *silence* Okay so y'all get the bad end of the deal... anyway!

Hi I’m Godsgirlz1,
I have a blog over at Gods Girlz
I’m a Pentecostal teen girl. I enjoy blogging, singing, playing piano, crafts, shopping, hanging out with friends, and doing anything girly.
I started a blog because I wanted to encourage Christian teen girls with the struggles that we face in the world. Since I am a Christian teen I know the temptations that many girls face.
Before I started this blog I wanted to start a Christian teen girl magazine, but I knew that it would be way to much money and work. So I decided to start a blog.
On my blog I post devotionals, book reviews, hairstyles, stories I have written, and music. ( *whisper* I’m even planning a contest shortly)
*thanks so much for doing this guest post GodGirlz1!!!
Sorry I have not posted latley :( I have been busy! Anyway Yes, I am still alive! But I don't have time to post :( I want to start doing a devotional every week, so maybe tomorrow I can do that! There has been some really bad weather around here!!! But I got the plants for my garden today!!! I am excited! Anyway, have a good day, I will blog soon!!!
I live in China, yep you heard me right China.
I am 13 (I turned 13 a few days before Emma :) and have been here for
1 and 1/2 years!
I like China a lot and want to tell all you a little about it.
Life in China consists of, long (and crazy) bus rides, lots and lots
of walking (from this bus stop to the other :), dodging cars that are
going WAY to fast....ect.
It is crazy but fun!
I love a lot of things about China but one of those is the people,
they are so friendly and sweet, all the time!
I hope you all get a chance to visit China one day, and if anyone
lives in China I would love to email you about it!
Here are a few pictures of me and Chinese people :) haha yeah I am
pretty popular! (blond-ish hair lol)
