The Amazing Roman Shades

OK so I've been in love with Roman Shades for forever but never attempted to make them because they look so hard. Then I found this great tutorial on you actually use the old mini blinds you already have and turn them into Roman Shades!!! Here are mine for Bestie's room.

We did follow the advice to use the room darkening material behind the pretty pink polka dot flannel so the sun wouldn't wash out the color.
I was hoping to post better pictures and a how to but our computer is just not being nice lately :).
So hopefully if you're feeling adventurous and want to spruce up your room just follow the link and enjoy!

The "FLOOD"!

We had a "little" rain here in Pennsylvania!

Here it is bubbling up from under the sidewalk!

May as well float a few boats, our kids were instant Civil Engineers

And a little mud never hurt!

We are very grateful that God is sovereign and kept us safe and dry through it all. Please keep our area in your prayers, looks like my Honey will be out of work until Monday and we are hoping they will open back up by then.
Many of our friends have lost most of the things in their basements and are now trying to recover what they can. When you think of all that has happened recently with the weather it makes you stop and realize just how much God is in control. I am pressed to take Him more seriously in this busy life of mine, I want to be found ready and waiting when He returns, not muddling through, and just getting by.
May the Lord Bless you and Yours,
The Keeper
