Hello Creative Friends,

Just checking in with you. I know I haven’t posted on my blog in awhile. I’ve been busy working on preparing for my Online Leadership Workshop that I’ll be having on the main website in March. You are all invited to attend. It will be March 16-20. It’s free so no fee to attend. You will need to attend during the event in order to download each day’s materials. The material will be available each day from 9:00 a.m. PST till midnight PST.   It’s not live so you will have the entire day during that time frame in order to watch the videos, read the material and download any handouts.

There will be video sessions from me, new articles and devotionals, and lots of downloads.  
It’s all revolving around leadership but a lot of it will be helpful to you as a Christian woman whether you are a leader or not so everyone is welcome to attend. Just go to the main Creative Ladies Ministry website www.juliabettencourt.com during the event (March 16-20) and there will be a new password each day in order for you to log in to attend.

Please pray for me as I finish up preparing for this event.  Feel free to re-blog this post or take the graphic above and let others know about the Workshop.  Thank you!

Have a creative day,

Hello Creative Friends,
I wanted to update my tag for the Conversation Hearts craft that is on the main website. The new one is in pink wording. The old tag in black and white is still there so if you want to print them on colored paper you can.

I dug my butterfly die and made the butterflies out of felt that I added to dressed up clothespins.  I love putting anything in glassine bags.

Pick up those Conversation Tags here on my main website.

Warm Up Those Hands!

Hello Creative Friends,

Just wanted to share real quick one of my little projects I made.  These are diy hand warmers.   They are made out of cotton material and filled with rice.  You heat them in the microwave for 30-50 seconds for two.  It all depends on your microwave.  If you have ever made a bean bag, it’s the same principle.  Just a 5 x 5 square.

Isn’t that fabric pretty?  I got it from Stampin’ Up! awhile back on their clearance.

Some people put dried lavender or herbs in theirs.  A lot of smells bother me and the rice does have a smell after you microwave it.  Just a grainy smell, but to me that’s something I can handle.  I’m better off without the lavender.

When I was expecting my second child, one of the ladies in our church gave me this really pretty handmade set, with a heating pad like this.  That one was filled with seed corn and believe me, it got used a lot.  One of my favorite gifts I have ever received.  It also came with a cute bib for my little girl in matching material and I think a pretty burb cloth.   I used that heating pad for the longest time and it still retained the heat.  I only had to get rid of it because something got spilled on it and it’s not like you can wash them.  It was just so dirty looking, I finally threw it away.

I’m not going to reinvent the wheel, so if you want step by step directions, go see the Bee in My Bonnet Blog for a tutorial. She adds a layer of flannel in hers to help keep the warmth in.  She shows how to make the heating pads too.

I’m very excited about using mine when I go out to heat up the car to take the kids to school in the mornings.  I know our California weather probably sounds warm to some but for me, when it is 60 or less, I am freezing!  We’ve been having the lows in the 40′s and highs in the lower 60′s.  How I ever grew up in Ohio, I will never know.
