An Artist At Heart! making pinterest inspired Ornaments for Family 2017





A year Ago our so my aunt Tracy hosted a Pinterest inspired ornament party at her house and invited all the ladies in the family to come and do a craft together it was so much fun.

We made cute owl ornaments and Christmas trees I loved seeing how each person made a different owl and tree.

I also made a snowball picture and a horse ornament it turned out super cute and it made my whole family laugh and my mom loved it.

It was a fun and enjoyable day filled with fun and laughter and it was good fellowship to have and we made our house cute as well.

We hope to make more ornaments to this year for our tropical Christmas tree we are planning on having.

You can make all kinds of ornaments for any occasion and holiday I will post some links below for ideas and inspiration.

For Christmas last year I made my best friend a seashell and sand Florida snowglobe ornament as a gift he loved it.



At my Aunt Linda's house, we made cinnamon applesauce ornaments and my sister sierra did not know they were not edible and ate one she said it was gross but beautiful to decorate with they are safe but not very tasty.


I have also made salt dough ornaments with my mom and sister growing up as well as in high school.

Traveling around the world trying one coffee bean at a time.

A coffee cake muffin and the new spring drink

A skinny caramel kiss with whipped cream 

Take time to visit a coffee shop.


I love going to coffee shops I am a coffee shop addict I love the smell of the coffee being made and how warm and inviting it feels to go into a coffee shop.

I love trying all the new spring drinks and trying something new whether it be a drink are something to eat and enjoy. 

My favorite coffee shop treats to get is a muffin they are so good I love all kinds of muffins.

Going to a coffee shop is one of the most relaxing places you can go to and just have some you time. 

I love how coffee shops are so clean and comfortable a nice place to meet friends and catch up over a coffee and something sweet to eat.

Growing up me and my family always went to the coffee shop near my house to get a drink my favorite drink to get was a favorite water they would put strawberry flavoring in it for me.

My new favorite drink is a skinny caramel kiss blended with whipped cream it is so good.

I look forward to visiting different coffee shops when I travel.  

All coffee shops are different and exciting and they all have something different on the menu.

Coffee shops have so much to offer other than coffee like candy's and chocolates donuts and muffins as well as cookies and ice cream and so much more so there is something for everyone.

You can bring an adult coloring book with you and enjoy coloring when you are drinking your coffee.

You can also bring a book our your lab top to enjoy as well as your phone.

Never go to a coffee shop alone you might spend all your money you will need someone to help you.

Sitting outside is relaxing also when you are drinking your coffee I love feeling the spring air and listing to all the bird's sing and just enjoying my time.

The coffee shops I have been too are 
the fat cat in myrtle beach sc
The daily grind cafe in new Philadelphia Ohio
Winan's coffee shop in Troy Ohio 
Joe Muggs coffee shop in Books A million canton Ohio.
Seattle's Best coffee new Philadelphia Ohio.
Starbucks in west Virginia

My Handmade Doll My Mom Made me in 2009 


I would like to share with you the first doll my mom ever made me in 2009.

My mom likes to sew and started making dolls so I would ask her for months if she would me one and she did.

She even made one for each of my sisters as well as different family members too.

She sewed everything herself including the cute little dress she has on. 

My mom made this for me when I was 17 I can't believe it was that long age. 

My mom also made a lot of different things growing up as well like towels and dolls. She as also made candles it would make our house smell so good growing up smelling all the different scents. 

My mom Stephanie does a good job decorating the house with her crafts. she makes her own dolls sewing them by hand and she has also made a door wreaths using old books it turned out super cute she made a big one and a small one.

Here are some more pictures of the crafts my mom made too 

My mom's mammy doll she made 

my mom towel she made.


My mom Stephanie has also taught me and my sisters at a young age how to sew by hand and do crafts. She has taught use to scrapbook and sew as well as making cards and how to use a hot glue gun.

She also taught a scrapbook class in our house growing up we used to have friends over all the time they would bring their scrapbooking belongings to share and we always had a blast using my mom's friends sticker maker.

I would also Go to craft shows with my mom Stephanie she would sell her handmade dolls and signs she hands stitched and sewed as well as her handmade candles our house smelled so good growing up. 

I used to make chocolate candy to make and sell at the craft shows too we used to set up a craft table at our church as well as a friends house it was always fun and I enjoyed being with my mom and learning how to do a craft show. We would love to go to a craft show again it was always fun and we enjoy looking at all the different crafts.

Beach Craft: Seashell wind chime 2017




Beach Craft: Seashell wind chime 


Are you looking for a craft to do with the seashells you find at the beach this summer are just some seashells you have laying around well here is one craft you can do with your seashells.

I have it hanging outside my door it turned out very nice and my family likes it too. 

I finally came around and making a seashell wind chime i really enjoyed making it and it was a lot of fun.

I got the idea on Pinterest and my aunt Tracy made one with the seashells she found on the beach.

I found so many seashells when i lived in myrtle beach and port st Lucie Florida as well as Sanibel island when i visited there.

I am looking forwards to making more crafts using my seashells
and being able to decorate my room with them.

There are so many wind chime ideas on the web i just picked one random website but i did mine a little differently.

I used a stick i found in my back yard
 
I picked some seashells i liked that already had holes in them when i found them on the beach.

I also used embroidery Floss that worked so much better for me.

I have posted a picture of all my seashells i found in the picture below.

I like to find seashells on the beach they make good souvenirs and no two seashells are the same each one is unique. 

I really like the one my aunt Tracy made too it's very different than mine. She sent me a picture to use for this blog post 

My aunt Tracy's seashell wind chime another cool idea.


I look forward to finding more seashells this summer and doing more beach and seashell crafts.

Have you ever made a seashell wind chime? 

What does it look like?

Enjoy reading hope you like me craft Angelika!

Earth Day 2017 How to keep the world around you clean and keeping it clean.


Earth Day 2017 How to keep the world around you clean and keeping it clean. 


With earth day tomorrow i though i would share some ways we can work together and keep the earth clean.

Some ways we can help is recycle you can make this a family activity as well by teaching your kids how to recycle and element what is going in to the land fill. 
By recycle we can element how much waste is going to the land fill. 

When i lived in Florida me and my family recycled and i enjoyed it i hope to do it again sometime that would be fun. 

When we go to the beach this summer for vacation we can help keep the beach clean by throwing our trash away and not leaving it on the beach if you see trash pick it up it can get in to the ocean and hurt the ocean animals. 
You can help by picking up your trash and not littering.

another way we can help is not littering like throwing trash out the window throw your trash in the trash can were it belongs lets keep are earth clean. I see so much garbage on the high ways and on the sidewalk it's gross and uncalled for we can all do our part in keeping it clean.

If you not sure what is recyclable our need help getting started i will post some links below.

one why we can help keep the world around use clean is by volunteering your time by helping with business and company's like when i was in high school i would go around in class room and do the recycling.  
the local park could use your help keeping the park clean.

I donated to the goodwill



I donated books and movies to my local library 


You can also recycle by donating to your local  good will and to your local library. 
You can donate all kinds of things like a broken purse some can use that to make a craft our fix it up.

Other things you can donate is books and movies your library will be thankful for your donation we also donated coloring books and craft supplies to are library as well as stickers.

you can donated used clothing to your local good will to someone can use them for a  crafts and wear them too.


My mom said she has this nice card box that had cards in it she is keeping the cards but donating the box someone can use the box for a craft our other things.

Donating is another good why to element what is going in to the landfill as well as keeping the earth clean.

God wants use to keep the earth clean so lets work together and keep and clean and he tell humans in the bible to work and keep it clean.

Numbers 35:33 

You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it.



paper plate spiders i made

my pop bottle spider i made 

a toilet paper roll bird i made 


 my egg carton bugs i made :)


You can do some crafts with recyclable materials like a milk carton and toilet paper rolls as well as a egg carton and a pop bottle. I also made a bank out of a coffee can.

There are so many craft ideas on what you can make with this items i will post some website below for you.

How can you keep the earth clean?

I look froward to hearing from you.

Epilepsy And Church 2017


Epilepsy And Church 2017 


I have epilepsy and i do enjoy going to church a lot i always ask my parents are we going to church today. 

But with Epilepsy sometimes church is hard for me to enjoy because of  the lights they us bother me my old church group had flashing lights so i ended up having a seizure as church because of that. So i started telling the pastor and the light people that i have epilepsy so they turned them of for me and that helped me out a lot i was thankful for that.

I have anxiety issues really bad because of my Epilepsy and my medicine so a lot of people make me feel over whelmed at times.
As well as the loud music makes me get a headache and i have to sit down for a minute sometimes sitting down helps me and taking a deep breath.


Also with me having epilepsy my seizures cause me to zone out and because of that i miss what the pastor is talking about but i do my best and write down what i can and learn from that and study that and the plus side is that some church have live videos of the message on there church website so i can always go back and relisting to it. 

I also like to pray and ask the Lord please help me not have seizure at church again and please help me with my anxiety and to calm down and i no he hears me and i can trust him to keep me safe.

I love going to church with family and listing to the worship music as well as just being at church.

Some church safety is make sure your church knows you have epilepsy and they can help you and make sure the flashing lights or off for you and make sure you feel welcomed there.

Also never go anywhere alone if you are going to church with a friend or family member make sure they know you have epilepsy   and tell them how to help you and what to do for you if you have a seizure.

I need to do what's best for me and my safety and never put my self in danger that's why i tell my friends and family and church that i have epilepsy and i share with them how they can help me if i need it and what to do if i have a seizure.

I also have a medical bracelet that i made my self and i wear that with me and if you have a illness you should be wearing a medical bracelet too so people can see what you have and are able to help you.


Also with epilepsy always bring some you can trust to go with you on vacation are road trips are any were that's new so they can look out for you and help you if you need it and with my sisters that all know what to do if i have a seizure.

I love the Lord Jesus with all my heart and i know he hears me and protects me as well as helping me enjoy church and learning from the messages. 

With my epilepsy i have learned how to trust the lord and how to praise him through the pain and the sadness and hurt and all that comes with having epilepsy as well as anxiety. God is everything to me and i do not let my epilepsy get in the way of worshiping him.     
One of my favorite bible verses is this one.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
