Positively Crafting

On the Michaels facebook page this morning,  they ask, "Michaels Fans, we're keeping you accountable. It's almost the end of the month, have you stuck with your New Years crafting resolutions?". Well I am happy to announce that YES! I have kept my crafting resolutions to make and create all things that bring goodness, love and joy. All things with positivity is my resolution this year. Over the weekend I added several things to my Etsy shop including:

And more additions to my Christian/Inspirational Items.

Also new in the shop is a section for Shining Hope Soap. A variety of soaps that I am making to benefit Haiti through the Lifeline Christian Mission. <---click here and you can see that the items from Color Of Dawn Creations have been added to the Lifeline website in the "Lifeline Products" section. Something for which I feel so excited, proud, and blessed. The soaps are now ready to ship so be sure to oder today.
 Valentine Gift Sets are being added just in time for the season of looooooove.

A Rarely Seen Creature And Spiderman

 Tonight a rarely seen creature resembling a pre-college teenage boy came out from the back of the house, regularly filled with non stop sounds of online Wii gaming, and exclaimed to me that he would like to cook whatever I had planned for supper because he probably needs to learn how to cook........................
.................................Oh excuse me. I just fell out of my chair. Again.

I managed to somewhat capture a photo of what this creature looks like.  

As I gave my basic instructions and let the creature go about working his cullinary talents I glanced into the livingroom and noticed that the Rileyman was extremely busy building a spiderweb with string on the sofa. 

Another glance and my Lola Roo who is normally my shadow was curled up resting in the fetal position. Probably to keep from being tied up with string but lets move on....... 

I decided this would be the perfect time to work on my Shining Hope Soap for Haiti. You can read more about my soaps if you click HERE or click on one of the nifty new page links at the top of my blog.  The soaps shown below are made with scents of Apple Pie, Linen and Sweet Pea, Honeydew Melon and, the looks and smells good enough to eat, Vanilla Latte.

But quite honestly I was too fascinated by the creature that appeared from the back of the house to get much of anything done in the way of craftiness and such.  

And he did a great job. Here he is bubbling with joy over his accomplishment. This hand in front of the face gesture is sign language for "I am so SO happy that you want to take my picture".

Plus there were other distractions like the tangled mess that Spiderman found himself in with his spiderweb and I was summoned from the cullinary show to be of some assistance.

Aaaaah yes. This is much better.
