Because you prayed...Jesus sent me in my Aug. Better Homes and Gardens magazine last week!!! YEA! (That was the first BHG magazine that I've received here in Colombia since April 2011!!!)
Today, I was talking to my Best Friend Jesus and I asked Him if He could PLEASE send me 2 more magazines this weekend while my sweetheart (my earthly Best Friend) is away.
(Phillip is in Medellin helping preach a revival at our church there. Please pray for this effort!)
An hour later...I went through the office where we get our mail...and the guard said,
"You have 2 magazines, do you want them now?"
I SQUEALED with delight (much to the embarrassment of my older children, I'm sure =) and said, "YES!!"
~So, in just 2 weeks Jesus has sent me in the Aug., Sept., and Oct. issues of Better Homes and Gardens. YEA!! God is GOOD...ALL THE TIME!!~
Living in South America...I cannot just go to a Pumpkin farm, or a grocery store, to get pumpkins, and I can't run to Hobby Lobby to get Fall decor to use to decorate...so I LOVE the T.P. pumpkins! =D
~I used a half-empty roll to make this pumpkin smaller.~
1. I just use a piece of material that is about 18 x 22. (This piece was a long and skinny piece, so I cut it off and sewed it together, to make it about that size. =)
2. One lady I read after lays a piece of newspaper on top of her material to make a more "puffy" pumpkin. She tucks in the newspaper first, then follows with the material.
I don't have newspaper, so I wrap 2 plastic bags around the outside of the T.P. roll to make it look more round and not the shape of the T.P. roll.
4. For a stem you can use a smaller stick, a thick stick, a brown paper bag twisted to make a stem, or roll material to make a stem.
5. If you want to tie a bow, you'll need about 12"-15" of ribbon.~
~I love it that you can be creative and use scraps of material (no matter the color), and any type of stem and you get some FUN pumpkins!~
