Pretty Thrifty: Easter Sunday

  Happy Easter!
We opened the restaurant yesterday! It went pretty well for our first day. Continued prayers for peace, provision, and success are appreciated!
  Amy, for taking such great pictures!
So, I just have to say that my mom looked awesome today! She bought a new dress, and she rocked it. The pictures simply don't do her justice! And thank you,

So I made this skirt this weekend. I wasn't sure how it was going to work, but I am really pleased with it. If you go back to my previous tutorial on jean skirts, you can see the basics on how to make one for yourself. I'll go back and make a note for making knee length skirts. I don't know if you can tell, but it does cover all of my knee. I think the length may vary depending on the hem length and the length of the jeans to start out with. 
Jewelry (all made by me): $0.00
Jacket (garage sale): $1.00
Tank top (given to me): $0.00
Skirt (made by me): $1.50
Sandals (garage sale): $0.50
Total: $2.00

Well, I wasn't in service today, so I don't actually know what our Pastor was talking about. I was in the children's church helping with the class. But I still was blessed. I got to watch as the kids opened Easter eggs that contained miniature nails, crown of thorns, coins, etc. that represented what Easter is really about. The teacher then asked, "Is the reason for Easter bunnies?"  
"Is Easter about candy?"
"What is Easter about?"
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings, as they say. We are to have this same, simple, child like faith as they do to enter heaven. We don't believe in Jesus, His death, and Resurrection because we have proof! We believe because the Bible says so. Do I sound naive? That's the point. Children believe because it's what they have been taught by their parents or Sunday school teacher. We are to believe because it's what our Heavenly Father has told us.  
Teen for the Lord


  1. Hello, Emily. You can most definitely slip in a post for the party! :)

  2. Great outfit! Love your jean skirt!
    I've considered making a pair of jeans into a skirt, just never got around to it! ;)
