Day 10: 31 Days of Pinterest: Scrapbook Owl

Well today was supposed to be an easy, "cross that one off my list and move on to get some things accomplished around the house" kind of project.

Yeah, not so much.  Isn't that always the way it is?! :)

This was a pin I came across in looking for ideas when I was working on redoing my bedroom.  A cute little scrapbook owl that I figured I could use some coordinating paper and pin them onto the message board I made.  Pins on Pinterest are "supposed" to link back to the page where the directions, etc are found.  Sometimes the pinner links back to just the blog itself and you have to try to find the actual post for THAT pin.  And sometimes it doesn't lead anywhere except a photo hosting site.  This was one that led to the blog, not the post, and I though I searched for the post for a while (didn't help that the blog is in another language!), I could not find it, but I thought easy enough.

So I gathered my supplies...

And it was NOT easy. :)

I didn't have a big enough circle punch, so I needed to use my circle cutter.  But then to figure out how to make the cuts needed for the wings and head... it took a while.  And it frustrated me.  But I finally completed one that I liked!

And I was done. :)  One is plenty!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
