Decorating Class

It was time to have the young women that are taking the W.I.S.E. Builders class over again.
It stands for Women 0f Integrity Strength & Efficiency. The have a class every Tuesday evening for 12 wks. on one of these subjects- --Finances, Nutrition, Cooking, Time Management, Housekeeping, Decorating, Relationship to Husband, Weight Management, Fashion, Hair Care, Facial Care & Positive Outlook. I have been doing the class on decorating.
Believe it or not, these young women tell us they have not been taught to do the basics in these areas. It's a great out reach for learning & fellowship.
I had a couple of tablescapes for them to look at and many pages of decorating tips, ideas, color swatches and hands on assignments.

I forgot to have someone take pictures this semester so I'll share the ones of the Spring session. There was a different group the other night. Each girl has a mentor to help her through the 12 wks.



Our pastor's wife is at all 12 sessions and does a great job co-ordinating and doing a devotional.
After the lesson they were off touring the house for ideas. Talk about pressure. lol


I made a pumpkin cobbler that was a big hit with everyone. Compliments to my daughter who gave me the recipe.


Served warm it is so yummy!

I had hot cider on the stove and two kinds of iced tea.


Pretty paper plates and napkins make clean up so much easier.


A few nuts to take away the sweet taste. (smile) It's a cycle for me. Sweet, salty, sweet, salty!

I gave the girls a little pumpkin with this little reminder printed on it.


Here's a close up pic.

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit. Please let me know you were here so I can come visit you.
Well, it's off to get ready for company arriving tomorrow. Take care now!

Love this post so much. What a wonderful thing to do and share your talents with others. You are so good at it too. The perfect one to teach and help others decorate. I know the girls had to be very inspired.
Your home looked lovely as always and the pumpkin gobbler looks so yummy. I would love that recipe.
What a great idea to give the ladies the little pumpkins with the attached verse. I have read that one before and it is such a good analogy.
You are a blessing my friend and the Lord uses you to bless others.
What a wonderful gift.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful post.
hugs, Celestina Marie

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
