Pillow Making

The whole entire month of June and into July, I have been making pillows. I seen this pillow pattern and had to make it. You can see the picture of the pillow I made in my last blog post below. When my grandaughter, saw the pillows that I was making she just had to have one. So, I found another pattern (here) that was more kid friendly and easier to make and made all 6 of the grandchildren a pillow plus one extra for a prize for my daughters baby shower. 

I made 2 pillows for the gift exchange and 2 for a friends birthday, plus 2 practice pillows that I am keeping and am partial to even though they are filled with flaws. Now these pictured. I'm all pillowed out now but have to make more. My daughters want some and I have to make one for my niece. She loves to be included in everything.

When I gave my 3 year old grandaughter her pillow this evening, she was happy, but wanted to know where her blanket is. She is under the impression that I am making her one. I don't know where she got that other than pillows go with blankets. She loves to look at my material and pick out her favorites and tell me to make this or that. And, of course, she expects me to make it right then and there with her help. She's a character.

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.

That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
