Please Say A little Prayer For Me

Just wanted to solicit prayers from my family and friends. I take my CPA test tomorrow at 12:00pm so if you could say a prayer for me tonight and tomorrow afternoon, I would greatly appreciate it becuase at this point I feel that is the only way I will have a chance at passing this test.

It's not that I haven't studied my butt off because I have...twice actually for this test. There's just alot of information to get confused about and half of it I don't and possibly never will use. :/ That is my frustrated face.

Thanks in advance for your prayers.

A Crafting Kind of Post

This is the coolest thing....something that every sewer needs. My uncle made this spool holder for the silent auction that my family did at our Christmas get together to help out one of our uncles that needed surgery and would have to take some time off of work. I know, I know, I got this at Christmas, and I'm just now posting about it. Sadly, it took that long for me to get it hung up on the wall. Anyway, The reason why this spool holder is so neat is because you can hide the spools by closing the door to the box and it looks like a pretty picture frame. (see pic 2 below. As you can see, I have a ways to go before I get this completely filled up, but it's always nice to have room to grow.
This is a picture of one of my favorite flea market finds. It's an old Dr. Pepper wooden crate. I got Josh to hang it up on the wall for me, and as you can see, I am using it to store crafting items such as my scrapbooking embellishments, ribbon, and paint. Neat idea huh?!! I can't say it's original :)
This is my other favorite flea market purchase. It's an old chest of drawers that have been refurbished with a hint of a distressed look. I have it in our living room as sort of an end table. (It's the only room in the house that there was room, but it fits it nicely.) It has been a wonderful addition to our home as it has provided additional storage, which unfortunately our house lacks.
And since I seem to be on the theme of favorites and the flea market, this is one of my favorite friends Karlie, we went to the flea market together, which was a good time. Much better than going to the flea market with my husband who discourages me from spending money. (Love you Josh!) It was nice to hang it; it's something that we don't get to do all of the time.Here are some cards that I made last weekend. Just thought I would share them.
Below is the inside of this card. It says "Hoppy for you!" Finally, this last picture doesn't have much to do with crafting, but it's something I'm proud of. It's a picture of my marigolds that I grew from seed that mom gave me! I normally don't try my luck with seeds becuase I don't have quite the green thumb that my mom does, but I had them and thought I should give it a try and not let the seeds go to complete waste. They've gotten a lot bigger since I took this picture.
Have a good weekend!
