Pattern For Making Face Masks...


Making Facemasks to protect yourself, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


~Here is a short video clip to watch~


Hello Everyone
I have been making face masks for 2 weeks now!
I have completely run out of elastic, so I have
Improvised, adapt and overcome!
(Did Clint Eastwood say this?)

You can't even order this online
(Out Of Stock)

I have shared a few links for making these;
Also an interesting topic of the better material or fabric to use!

I personally believe this is real and not a conspiracy theory.

Once again, lets fight over everything
And let's agree everyone is wrong;
(Accept Yourself)

So please stop your anti- everything for just once!
Political nonsense...

Don't be in fear, just stay home and stop spreading this virus;
You may show NO symptoms, but be a carrier!

Do what you think is right!!
Don't be a naysayer!

Stupid is as stupid does!!

Hoopla A Wonderful And Free Service Through Your Library For Audio Books...




It is always wise to have a few good movie series in your home.
Keep in mind that having good books and movies available.




This may the year, many of us will be planting gardens;
Because it is a very therapeutic!
Even if it is just a small planter with tomatoes.

I hope you will look into the app called Hoopla,
I have listened to at least five books so far!

I pray you are staying healthy and happy and keeping busy
Yourself with a home project!

What are you doing with your extra time of not being out and about?

Spring is arriving on daily winds here...

Encourage yourself and encourage others!
This too shall pass!

Blessings, Roxy

Sweet Solitude in Times Of Unrest...


We are not alone! living from glory to glory blog....


Sweet Solitude

Finding peace and learning to be content in times of unrest.

Why running around and leaving your home for every little thing
you might think you need!
Well, think again;

Having a home, we can rest and shelter in place is such a blessing!

Many people think that continuing to go out and about that
It's still okay and safe to be a part of being out in public spaces.

But, I am so suppose to be responsible...
Right?

So may I encourage you to stay home!
(If you can)

So, why not take advantage of this time to enjoy your home.

I always enjoyed the quote that said
~The kitchen is the heart of the home~
But I feel that the Home is where the heart stays happy.
And healthy with safe borders.


Take this time to start planning your garden!
Start your Spring cleaning!
Make some delicious homemade soup.
Clean out some of those junk drawers.

May I suggest changing your bed sheets every week,
Open the windows, even a crack to allow some fresh air to circulate!

Be not discouraged as we are called to take personal responsibility!

It's not that I believe everything I see or hear on the news;
But rather the truth of what a virus is able to transfer to others;
A virus does not care who it latches onto.

But we may need to keep our own thoughts and ideas to ourselves!
Learn to filter what is pertinent to yourself and your family.

Also, keep the things you talk about
 To your children or grandchildren private.
Only share what they need to know about washing their hands.

Take extra time to pray and be frugal in your home goods.
Realize we are still the working class,
 And we must stay healthy and calm.

Take this time of being asked to stay home and try to enjoy
The Solitude...
Of being with your family!

Keep busy and don't listen to the news all day long!
Try to listen to a news source that is not leftist generated.
I am sure there is more to this story or not that they are telling us!
Use the wisdom we learned from the chicken pox or polio.
Look some people are going to die!
But, the Lord has my days numbered, but I am not stupid!!

Remember when we would practice a fire drill?
Were were to all stay calm and walk out the door!

Well, in this case walk calmly into your home and stay there!!


Hugs, Roxy

How to Use Disinfected Sprays And The Benefits Of Wearing Rubber Gloves And A Short Video Clip...


Wearing Rubber Gloves, Living from glory to glory blog...


I think we are all feeling some of the stress of this virus;
Even if you live in a place with no known cases,
It is invisible and is spread very easily.

So I wanted to share something that you may already know about.

But if you are not aware of this it could benefit you and yours!

I always spray down my counter tops in my kitchen,
And my bathroom often.
Also, if someone is sick in the home, I will do it daily!

So if you use a disinfectant spray, you must take into account,
{Dwell Time}
This is the amount of time you leave the product on the surface,
BEFORE you wipe it off...

Seven to Ten minutes;
Some may require a longer time!

Use a paper towel and throw it away
(If you can find paper towels)
If not, use a clean rag,
 Then wash with bleach in your washing machine!



In these times of personal distancing
6 feet apart
And only 10 people in gatherings

It is wise to use wisdom in your hand towels and bath towels.

Please drink water every 15 minutes to keep throat moist
Stay home!!
(If you can)

Please stay well and obey the laws and rules put in place,
By our city and government officials...
They have your best interest at stake!

Blessings to you all
Stay healthy and keep praying for yourself and others!

The Importance Of Celebrating Those You Love, And A Video Clip... Birthdays And Special Moments


Sending Birthday Cards, Living from glory to glory Blog...


Learning to celebrate others,
Showing honor and making others feel special!



I was just thinking about how lovely it is when I receive an inquiry
About how I am doing or feeling on any given day!
But when we stop to think about sharing special days;
Of those we know and care about!
Especially those we love in our families!

It's about giving honor and showing that the other person matters!

We are pretty self absorbed these days and just so busy.

Give honor where honor is due!

It is not too late to purchase a pack of note cards or birthday or get well ones!
And try to send ONE card a month...

Or just a quick note on a single page!




Or you can send a card through email!



Well, I just wanted to say thank you for those that have
Been coming to this Blog for so many years!
Blogging has just been a wonderful source for me to;
Encourage others...

I have written over 900 hundred blog posts to date!

I keep asking myself, should I keep blogging?
Well, until then
Blog on and Plod on...

How To Prepare For Cornavirus And Other deadly Viruses As A Homemaker...



Keeping The Home Safe From Viruses, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


~Viruses~

Hello Ladies...

Here we are once again being challenged as a homemaker to keep watch...

Being diligent and being proactive is a powerful tool!

I wanted to share a few things to us that stay at home and are hearing,
All kinds of rather very alarming stories and scenarios.

But when these things start happening, are we to just laugh and ignore them?
And think everyone is an extremist?

I like to think of the Proverbs 31 Woman that laughs at the days to come;
Why did she laugh?

Well, I like to think she did because she made herself ready,
And also for her entire household!

We all know just how sick, we can get from the common cold!

These viruses are getting more and more powerful, but so many,
Are new to this century!

Well, firstly may I just share a few things I am doing!
Do not operate in fear, but in wisdom...

(I will start a list of what I do and how I prepared)

Wash your hands!!!
As soon as anyone comes into the house require them to wash their hands!

Wear those little gloves that cost a buck whenever you go out;
Once your home just throw them in the washing machine!

Make a new habit of not touching your face!!

Have antibacterial soap in the house;
I bought some Dial bar soap for very cheap.

Purchase some bleach super cheap; (If you can find any)

Rubbing alcohol; (If you can find any)

And we have been told to always have at least 2 weeks of provisions;
Just in case of house quarantine or natural disasters!

Also a fever reducing medicine!
Kleenex
Vitamin C

We are told elderly and children can have worse symptoms;
But these viruses can be deadly even in the healthy!
You can even have these viruses and not show signs of sickness.
But you could still transfer it to others!


Use Antibacterial wipes, wipe door knobs and phones daily,
Any surface that is touched by many people.
We have all seen the many ideas to stay healthy!
Abide by them...

Stay away from large crowds;
If someone coughs move away from them!

Always keep items you need to have if things escalate in your town or state.

Water, soups, crackers, juice or a pop you need to stay hydrated.
Extra food items that will last on your pantry shelves!
Extra items in your pantry are just plain wise!

You need to always have these things put back;
Rotate them and use them up!

Help
If you have any ideas or suggestions to add;
Write them in the comment section!

Always learning and living from glory to glory...

Stay well and keep watch in every season...
Hugs, Roxy

Sharing A Dollar Tree Bargain...


Sponges From The Dollar Tree, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...



Sharing A Dollar Tree Bargain...

Sponges in the kitchen;

Use a clean one every day!
Keep the sponge away from raw meat!
(If you are wiping up raw meat juice use a paper towel and throw away)
Do not keep them around for too long!
They say you can put a damp sponge in the microwave for One minute
(To Kill Bacteria)
But, with these very inexpensive sponges you can use a new one!!

Using a sponge in the kitchen is still a good tool;
Just be mindful of using a clean one every day!

On this same train of thought,
 Always use a clean dish cloth and towel every day!

And always keep clean rags available for cleaning up spills.

Also, I think you should have separate towels for hands and dishes!
I personally prefer to allow my pots and pans to air dry!


~Here is the clip showing the sponges I buy from Dollar Tree~

Making Cinnamon Rolls And Zuppa Soup...


Roxy's Cinnamon Rolls And Zuppa Soup, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Making a loaf of fresh bread and cinnamon rolls;
I served these cinnamon rolls with my soup;
It is a copycat recipe from the Olive Garden restaurant!
Zuppa Soup
Click the link below  my clip and give it a try!



I laughed as this video clip just stopped short;
But anyone who has ever baked cinnamon rolls,
Just pop them in the oven at 350 degrees and bake till 
Lightly browned, Allow them to cool,
 Frost and enjoy!





This was the recipe I used from Delish!
Zuppa Soup from Delish, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

This was really delicious, I did not use hot sausage,
But I did add some cayenne pepper flakes for a bit of spice!

I may have to just write out my own recipe later for this blog post!

Happy Homemaking...

Sharing A Pretty Lace Treasure And The reality Of Homemaking...


Lace Doiles, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

I really loved getting this set of four lace doilies or placements.
There is just something about lace and placement that I so enjoy!

~Being thankful for the strength and energy~

Also. Wanted to say that being at home and working
In your home and making it clean and tidy should be a joy!

But there will be days, that you just have to go with the flow;
It does not have to be a production,
Lights, music or perfection!

Doing two delicious things from my bread making moments...


Hope you enjoyed seeing Tasha, every time she hears this clip,
She starts looking around and does a little bark.

The Video Called American Gospel Christ Alone...


American Gospel; Christ Alone Video 

Please take the time and watch this amazing video!
It is from YouTube...

I wanted to share this video about the Gospel!
I personally believe we have a watered down gospel,
And a feel good gospel!

This video is a powerhouse of truth!
Trust me, some of you may become offended;
But this is so needed in a culture of just try a little harder!
Build yourself up!
I am-----
Don't offend anyone...

Deception comes as an Angel of light;
In return you could be cast into the outer darkness,
~Separated from God for Eternity~

This is a long video, but you can watch it all at once or
In a few different settings!

Just click and be blessed!


Christ Alone

Beware of another Gospel being preached!

An Easy Valentines Craft And A few Thoughts On Flying Apperance's...


Valentine Banner, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Hello, Can you believe we are celebrating another lovely holiday?
I wanted to share these sweet heart banner that I made years ago and,
It is still one of my very favorite banners!
When its over I place it in a drawer of my china hutch for the next year!




I just could not help myself in saying maybe too much on how my
Flying experience went last month!
But, It just helps me to be mindful of how I look when I am
Out in the world!

Vintage Looking Banner, Living From Glory To glory Blog...

Here is my homemade heart banner!



Heart Patterns, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Make a few different patterns of size and shapes of hearts!
Fat and wide or long and skinny...

Scrapbooking Paper, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Use some pretty scrapbooking paper, of colors and design you really like!
There are so many beautiful colors to choose from!

Once you cut out the hearts place them in the pattern you choose;
Now, slowly line them up on your sewing machine;
Leave a long tail of thread and sew them evenly apart!
I like to sew the hearts almost into the middle of each heart,
This way they lay nicely!
Then also leave a long ending tail of thread, as you use these strings
To hang them over a window or a china hutch or a mantel or just on a wall!


I do want to say may you take this time and share your love;
And creativity and always try to look your best!
Make and Bake something for those you LOVE...

As Always, Hugs and striving to remind myself;

How To Make Fabric Coasters With Video Clip Directions...


How To Make Fabric Coasters, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

These coasters are made from a Pioneer Woman table cloth,
I just cut the excess fabric off as it was too long for my table.




Living From Glory To Glory Blog...
Batting for Coasters, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...










Measure fabric 6x6
Measure Batting 5x5




Material Needed
1/2 yard material of your choice
1/2 yard of Batting 100% cotton
Yardstick
Scissors
Needles for pinning
Sewing machine
Scotch Guard Spray
Remember you can cut the material with scissors or use a mat board
With a Rotary Cutter.

Start this project, by cutting your fabric and batting
Fabric  cut the square's  6x6
Batting, cut the squares 5x5

Now, Place the fabric squares right sides together;
Then place batting in the center of fabric and sew around the edges of batting material.
Try to catch the batting material as you sew,
As it will make it easier when you turn it right sides out!
Leave a little 1 inch opening so you can turn it right sides out.
Remember to use a thread that matches your fabric.

Tip: Make sure to cut off the tip of each corner after sewing the,
Batting on, as it makes it less bulky when turning.
Tip: Also iron the squares after you turn them inside out!
Then go around each one for a final stitch;
(Remember to backstitch so they stay securely together.

I like using a mat because I can have very straight lines
 And it protects the sewing surface.

You can make a different design for all sorts of holidays or special occasions!

I have made many sets for myself, and some for my friends!
It is also a very frugal gift to make with very little fabric;
A great craft to use up all those smaller bits of material.

I do hope you will try this sweet little craft. It is fun and makes such a nice gift.

May you all enjoy this month of February and make your home cozy and warm!

As Always,
Living From Glory To Glory

Hugs, Roxy

The Benefits Of Making Lists, And Vintage Material...



I absolutely love this material...
I would love to have a bed pillow covered by this Ticking Material.
But having an apron made out of it is just the perfect thing for me,
As I wear aprons while cooking and deep cleaning.


Every day is a new chance to BLOOM...


Hope You enjoy this video clip...




One thing other than washi tape and stickers and aprons is pretty shopping list,
That I just can't get enough of (smiles)


Ticking is a cotton or linen textile that is tightly woven for durability and to prevent down feathers from poking through the fabric and used to cover mattresses and bed pillows It commonly has a striped design, in muted colors such as brown, gray or blue, and occasionally red or yellow, against a plain, neutral background.

Although traditionally used in mattresses and pillows, the material has found other uses, such as serving as a backing for quilts and other bedding It is sometimes woven with a twill weave.

Ticking is no longer restricted to a utility fabric and has found uses in interior decorating styles intending to evoke a homespun or industrial aesthetic. Modern uses for ticking include furniture upholstery, cushion covers, tablecloths, decorative basket liners, and curtains. Occasionally, lighter weight  cloth is printed with a striped pattern made to resemble ticking fabric, and used to make garments  (Information From Wikipedia)



Enjoy your day or night!
Keep a smile on your face and get'er done!

Finding A Pretty Treasure And Sharing Our Lives...


Vintage Rose Painting, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


We now have so many different ways to communicate with others!
What a joy to be able to send a quick picture or text about something,
That is a moment you want to share with others!



I am so grateful for the fast and easy ways we can connect with others today!

But, we all know the feelings of being lonely or isolated.
So we must always strive to reach out and connect in a personal way!

Meeting for coffee or a phone call!

Writing a letter or a nice long email to someone!

It is so much more enjoyable to have someone close to your heart;
And to know what is going on in your life.
Maybe not as impersonal as Facebook, with every relationship.
We are created for intimate relationships, not so impersonal.
And you do not have to be best friends with everyone.
(Just a few that are near and dear to your heart)

I remember as a young newly married woman then quickly,
A new Mom, there were times of thinking,
I just wish I had someone to talk to!
About things that mattered to me and someone to help advise me.

Reach Out And Touch Someone Today!

And keep your eyes open for a treasure meant just for you!

As Always Living From Glory To Glory

Shrimp On Angel Hair Pasta Quick And Easy Meal...



Easy Shrimp Dinner, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Shrimp served on Angel Hair Pasta

I always like to keep a bag of frozen raw shrimp in my freezer;
You can get a bag at the super market for under eight dollars.

It's really handy for a quick meal when the day has gotten away from you!

I did make this last night and it was delicious!
The angel hair pasta cooks up so very fast and is light.
I always like to add onions and garlic and olive oil and butter,
The sauce is mostly butter, so You can a dash of sweet and sour!

Or just add more olive oil and garlic salt!

Delicious and you can make and serve this in a flash...

I made a clip to share with you!




I am enjoying using Bloggers Video Clips!

I am not sure I want all the things that go along with YouTube Channel!

Still researching the pros and cons...

Should I Start A YouTube Channel...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


I have been trying to decide if opening a YouTube Channel is for me??

What are the benefits?
Would I enjoy having to create a video clip for it?
I guess I could just experiment and see where it goes!
I did not even realize blogger had a place to do this on my blog!

Well, welcome to a new decade...
Do you have any suggestions or comments!

The quality of this video is not good at all;
But once again, I would be entering a new learning curve!

I have to ask myself if this is a good way to use my time;
And will this reach more people?
Also, Maybe I should just use Blogger and not bother with YouTube!
I could sure use some feedback!
Thanks so much!

I guess everything is really trial and error,
It is how we learn and overcome the things we do not know how to do!

Why We Should Start A Grateful Journal...



Why We Should Be Grateful, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Starting A Grateful Journal...

It is never too late to start a grateful journal;
But maybe starting it at the beginning of a New Year,
We do not have to implement all our ideas for the new year on January 1st!
Sometimes it takes time to do the very things that will bless us.

But this idea;
Could be a great way to practice being grateful!

I found a journal that I have had for years and much to my surprise,
It was filled over a decade of time of things I was grateful for!

So do we have to learn the art of being Grateful?
Yes, I believe we do!
It is so much easier to just be busy in any given day;
We can become distracted and often overwhelmed.
In many seasons we can be what I called a survival mode.

But once you start taking the time and look for those things,
 That come from our sweet heavenly Father;
 You will want to start treasuring those little things and big things!

We need to make time for journaling things that can give us joy;
Because In times of trial or lean days we can find hope.

Being grateful is one of the most powerful weapons!
We can ward off discouragement and anxiety!
And bring us back to a peaceful state of mind.
Because we can look back and see that the Lord has done to bless us!

This simple thing can bring you great joy!
Because we can feel lonely or forsaken at times.
And it's truly just not true...

Train yourself to look for the things in everyday life;
To be grateful for!!

I have picked up that very old grateful notebook,
And I am adding things often that I am grateful for!

I think this will be a legacy of the sweet gifts from the Lord...

Blessings to you all!
Hugs, Roxy
