~Fleece Tie Blanket~

So, I know you have probably seen these blankets everywhere but I just have to show you the one I made for my niece's 7th b-day this weekend. It.is.ADORABLE! She is the only one of my nieces & nephews that doesn't have a fleece blanket, so she is really excited about it!

I went to a local craft store and found this adorable fleece material with birds on it & I found a pretty teal/blue color to use on the backside! I think it turned out really cute! This was my 8th fleece blanket to make and I think I am a professional at it by now! LOL They are really easy to make and everyone loves them. They make great gifts!

If you don't know how to make one, and would like a tutorial, here is a link to show you how: Fleece Tie Blanket

Thanks for stopping by...have a GREAT day! :)

~Home Run the movie~

Hello friends! I just wanted to remind everyone about the movie "Home Run" that will be in theaters near you next month, April 19th! It was filmed in Oklahoma and I was lucky enough to be an extra in it! It is a story of recovery & finding God. Here is a link to the website: Home Run Check it out!

This is what the story is about...

"Freedom is Possible

Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.

Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

Based on thousands of true stories, HOME RUN is a powerful reminder that with God, it's never too late … freedom is possible."

There is also a novel that just came out about it written by Travis Thrasher...I ordered my copy and it should be coming in the mail soon! I can't wait to read it!
