Crafty Me!

I absolutely hate wearing shoes. I would rather be bare foot. When summer roles around usually I keep a pair of shoes in my car for when I need to wear them other then that there are no shoes upon my feet.

I really wanted to do something crafty, (being a crafty person and all) so I bought some cheap shoes from Walmart (gotta love Walmart) and went to work. Painting and threading and a little bit of sweat, and this is what I came up with, and I quite like them. No one will have a pair of shoes like me! I epically like the ones I painted, I don't mean to show off or anything, but lets be honest they are some good looking shoes. I should start my own business, sweet shoes, hoodie bags, tie skirts, I could do it all!

Here are a few close ups of my shoes. Their time to shine :)

Someone is watching over me

My heart is so full of love. To be honest I don't even know why this happened or who it even was. Tonight after I finished with work I walked out to my car and saw a piece a paper on the windshield, and I was so scared it might be a ticket or something. There was no reason why I should get a ticket but you never know these days. So I pulled it off and found an envelope with my name written on it. When I opened the note I simply started to cry. In a weird crazy way a prayer had been answered. In the envelope I found a note that read...

Heavenly Father felt like donating to your college fund today:) He loves you...

Along with the note was 60 dollars....

I have no idea who this person is, how they even knew I was at work, or why they even felt like they needed to donate to what college fund I have. Someone out there must know I am in need of money, but really 60 dollars... I just don't even know what to say. What was even going threw their head to just want to give me money. Someone out there must be watching over me. I have been praying that I will know how to save up my money, and just for help to support me threw college and the hard times I have a head of me, I never knew Christ would show that help threw others. That little act of kindness strengthened my testimony of tithing immensely. I guess Heavenly Father is really looking out for me. -Thank you mysterious angel.

My latest trip!

On my last trip down to Cedar City, SUU was having a Polynesian culture concert. People in the Polynesian club performing all different kinds of dances, and I simply fell in love. I have no greater desire then to visit New Zealand, and I think all my friends are a little annoyed at how much I talk about it. There is just something about the way my brother Jesse talks about NZ that makes me want to fly out there and explore every place possible. The beauty of the island, the wonder of the people, and of course all the Tim Tam's I can eat. As they did the dances; the Haka, the Rikirang, the Ikaletahi-Mako, I simply thought I was born into the wrong culture. They had dances from Samoa, Tahiti, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Tonga. They brought so much joy and beauty to the stage. And I must say I do love the music. Perhaps someday I will make it over to New Zealand, even Hawaii would be cool, but I just might not come home.

Plan of action: Someday Jenny Holker and I are going to have our brothers take us to New Zealand, since they both served missions there. Perfect plan!
