NEW PDF Pattern - "On The Go" Car Mat Activity Tote

This PDF Pattern is for making a car mat/activity tote bag.

This bag is WONDERFUL for trips to Grandma's, for church (it'll fit on most pews), or even the car!

When closed, the bag measures 15"x10"; when fully opened (using the car mat) it measures 15"x40".

When closed, the bag has 2 outer pockets that are great for storing coloring books, etc.
Open the bag up once and it has a tic-tac-toe board and a chalkboard.
Open up once again and it has a car mat with Velcro pockets to hold 12 cars and 2 zipper pockets to hold the extra road and building pieces.

Very descriptive pattern with lots of pictures.

***Please note: This pattern is written in a way that a beginner sewer should be able to make the bag...but because of the different types of materials used together (felt, cotton fabric, chalkboard fabric), plus the length of the pattern...I would NOT recommend this for a ""true" beginner sewer.***

This pattern, as well as the pattern concept/idea are COPYRIGHTED. Please do not "steal".

Book Review: Dining With Joy by Rachel Hauck

I really enjoyed reading “Dining With Joy” by Rachel Hauck. It’s a good book, with a little bit of romance included!
The main character, Joy, is a TV cooking-show host – who can’t cook. [I will admit…at the beginning of the book, I thought it was a little “far-fetched” that someone could be the host of a popular cooking show and not cook…but as you keep reading, it becomes more rational to believe.] Then she meets Luke Redmond, a handsome, caring guy who CAN cook. She thinks he’s her “way out” of the cooking part of the show…but it doesn’t quite work out that way. By not telling Luke her “secret”, she almost loses him. But, of course, love wins out in the end.
This book was not only an enjoyable romance book, it also touched upon following God’s will in making choices for our lives - including totally relying on God and praying to Him when our lives seem topsy-turvy.
This book was easy-to-read. In fact, I couldn’t put it down once I started it. And, yes, I did cry a little while I was reading it…especially towards the end.
I would definitely read other books written by Rachel Hauck. In my opinion, she’s a great author, and as stated earlier, I really enjoyed this book!
