     I wouldn't say that sushi is one of my most favorite foods, but I do like it once in a while. More so, I don't like all of it and have always wanted to learn to make my own and subsequently play with the ingredients and tastes.

     As a first time sushi maker, I didn't make anything spectacular, but it has always seemed like even the simple ones were such a difficult dish to make. Not anymore!! 

     I do have to say, after making several rolls, I much prefer sushi with seaweed on the outside, they were much easier to roll, cut, keep contained, transfer, and eat.

     When I was expecting our 6th child, I was anxious and scared and my mind was buzzing, "OMG we are going to have 6 kids!!! How am I going to do this??!" Not with this baby though. I have such peace about it and I am really looking forward to enjoying our 7 children. I must say though, God had been preparing me and opened my heart to receive this baby.

Jewelry Organizer

     It wasn't until I was 31 years old that I got my ears pierced for the first time. I had always wanted to, but my parents never allowed it, saying it was a sin. Even when I started to study the bible for myself, learning differently, Mr. Chickadee was still against it. So I went on with my life, browsing pretty earrings, wishing I could wear them. One day I sat down and made a list of all the reason I wanted to have my ears pierced and, hoping for the best, gave it to Mr. Chickadee. For the first time he actually considered it and then said, "I still don't want you to, but you can." You think I waited to get them pierced? I went the very next day!!

My earring collection started growing slowly, creating a storage and organization problem..
With that, this lovely hanging jewelry organizer was born!
