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

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 an…

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…
