Epic Fail!

I know I have TOTALLY failed at blogging everyday. I'm sad, but I've been SO busy lately!!!  I finally got my Etsy store up and running! Now you all can go order tutus and bows!!! YAY! Please go check it out and tell all your friends!

Manda's Pretty Little Things

Thank you so much for taking a look and giving me business! This shop is my only form of income, so I'll love you a long long time if you help me promote and maybe even shop yourself! I'll be putting up more bows tomorrow! YAY!

That's about all I've been up to besides helping out A LOT at church and running crazy. :)

Love you all VERY much!!!

Last REAL Post Till Friday!

Ok well it's off to bed for me. I head up to camp tomorrow morning.  I won't be posting "for real" again until Friday.  I'll try to do either a mobile re-cap or a photo everyday while I'm gone, but if I miss a day, don't hold it against me.

I'm super excited for camp! I had a blast last year and I know this year will be just as awesome! God is going to do some great things in the youth of AZ this week!

Ok that's all for me today. Off to bed!

See ya Friday! :)

Countdown To Camp!

I leave for camp in 2 days!!! I'm so excited. Sunday morning I'm out of here. I get home Friday afternoon/evening.  My posts for those days will be some sort of mobile upload.

This is what I did today:
These are to decorate my cabin with.

I made this to go with a ladybug themed tutu that I'm making either Saturday or when I get back from camp.

I also made a purple tutu for a little girl named Alyssa and a matching bow.  I'm having so much fun making stuff! I have a TON of tutus to make when I get back from camp, and hopefully I'll have my Etsy shop fully up and running by then.  

Ok it's hot in here. I'm off to bed. 

See ya tomorrow!

I spent today making paper butterflies and signs to decorate my cabin with on Sunday.  I made a ton of butterflies to hang from the ceiling and signs with scriptures and quotes about being a new creation and being unique. I can't wait to hang everything up at camp!!! YAY!

Ok that's all for today. I have lots of tutu orders, now I just have to get my supplies!

Hello Monday

I opened my Etsy store today! You can find it at  I don't have anything up yet, I probably won't have anything listed until the week after next. I have camp next week so I don't want to have orders that I have to put on hold.  However, I did get some orders from facebook friends today, so I have lots to do this week! YAY! I started a hot pink and black tutu today, but I have to wait for my supply order to come so I can finish it.  I really am enjoying my business!

Ok that's all for today. I'm going to watch TV and hang with the hubby.

See ya tomorrow.

I Like Having Friends

We had church today. I did nursery for the 9am classes, and then went to 10am service. The nursery kiddos are SO cute! Church was good. Pastor Price has been preaching on some GREAT stuff lately! I'm super happy at Cathedral.

After church we went to lunch with the Lafons.  Nate and Amy are great, and their kids are adorable!

We had a little rest time and then it was back to church to help get stuff ready for camp next week. I addressed and stuffed a ton of envelopes.  I'm super stoked for camp! YAY!

I'm really tired now. We had a super busy weekend.  I'm going to try to make some tutus this week and help with more camp stuff.  Then Sunday morning I'm off to camp till Friday night.  Busy Busy Busy!

I still haven't found my notebook to check up on my book stuff. Yikes! I'll try to find it tomorrow. I promise. *wink* haha

Ok I'm off to bed! See ya tomorrow!

I Has An Interwebz!

We finally got our internet hooked up!!! I'm so excited. My goal is to get my Etsy store up tomorrow afternoon/early evening.

I just realized I never posted yesterday. I had youth choir last night and then my hubby and I helped out at the Teen Afterglow and we didn't get home till almost 2am.  I am very sleepy to say the least.  We had a blast last night and I'm extremely happy to be at Cathedral and to be involved with such great ministries.  I leave for camp a week from tomorrow and I'm SUPER stoked! At this point, I've decided to not have a guest blogger for the time I'm gone, I think I'll just update you all with a daily photo or a little mobile post. 

We're babysitting my nephew right now and his parents should be home soon. I'm ready to go home and go to bed. We have a semi-early morning tomorrow and lots to do.  I'm an extremely sleepy Manda.

Alright this is all for me today.

Catch ya later.

It's been a long week. Hopefully we're able to get internet tomorrow. I'm going nuts without my interwebz! Tomorrow night is youth choir and afterglow! Night!

I Need Me Some Interwebz.

Still using this dodgey internet connection. It seems to work best late at night and super early in the morning.  I can't wait till we can get our own service.

We had church again tonight. It was pretty good. We took 2 of our old youth kids with us. I really miss them. They're such good kids.  We have church again tomorrow night and then youth choir and afterglow on Friday. The preacher this week has been talking about your goals and dreams and not letting anyone get in the way of them. I've talked about my calling to work with youth before in this blog. I'm sort of feeling like right now I'm supposed to hang out and do what's asked of me and just be involved with the youth group and the kids.  It's all about being a good influence and a positive adult in their lives for me anyway.  I really have a heart for kids and youth.  I'm thankful that God has given me a husband that is the same way.

Ok well it is SUPER hot in this room. I need to get a fan for in here ASAP! Off to read a bit and go to bed. I finished the 1st Sookie Stackhouse book this morning. I'm going to start the second one now.  Still no book counts for you. I really need to find my notebook and update it. Grrr.

See ya tomorrow! (Hopefully this internet at night thing keeps up.)

I'm So Hot...And Not in a Vain Way.

It's getting hotter everyday here. Arg, why do I live in AZ again?  I still don't truly have internet in my new place yet. Right now I'm tapping into a wireless connection that isn't the most reliable. It goes in and out constantly. My hope is to have internet by Friday. Here's hoping!

Nothing new and exciting to report. We are still unpacking and getting settled.  The animals are all transitioning ok. Today they were a bit more jumpy and loud then the last couple of days, but I think it's just going to take some time for them to get used to the change.

My Aunt Elsie's house burned down yesterday in Las Vegas. My Aunt Elsie passed away last June and her daughter, PV, was living in the home.  2 of her dogs and 7 cats died in the fire. Please keep PV in your prayers.

Ok I'm off to read a bit and go to bed. I finished a book today and started the Sookie Stackhouse series. I don't have my notebook unpacked yet, so I can't put up book counts. I'll hopefully be more on track come this weekend.

Thanks for bearing with me!

See ya later.
