So I finished the Twilight series on Friday - so so so good! Loved everything about them. I finished all four books in about 2 weeks - and I have to say I am a little sad they are done - now what am I gonna do with my free time? :)
I went to the movie yesterday - so good. That is one good looking cast! Really you should read the books and watch the movie - if you like that kind of thing then you'll love these.

A sweet friend and her hubby and a couple of little ones need our prayers. Truly such a heart breaking story. They have been caring for two beautiful little ones in hopes of permanently making them part of their family. Today they we were notified that the little ones will be sent back to live permanently with their biological parents just next week.
They are....."heartbroken and scared and are now begging you for our prayers. They have spent the day on their knees, praying that God will keep them safe. Won't you please join us? If you belong to a church, please add the kids to your prayer list. If you are in a prayer chain or a member of an online site that allows prayer requests or know just one person who is willing to say a prayer or two for E & H--will you please tell them their story and ask that they also tell all their praying friends? They need God's help." (this was taken directly from Becca's blog.)
So come on let's pray - they need us. I can't even imagine the pain they are going through. But I will pray - a lot - for them all, I really hope you will all join me.

Happy November....

....from Star Hitched Wagon!

I really do love fall! The colors of the leave are gorgeous! I so enjoy the cool days with cold nights. I love to drink hot cocoa, tea and cider to warm up. Fall truly is my favorite time of year. And I have to say this fall might be one of my favorite yet. It's been so nice that we really have been enjoying being outside a little longer than we are used too....

Another reason I love fall is the clothes, the boots, the accessories....

Deep Thoughts! :)

I like The Secret - I believe! I also love the song Lifeline by Angels and Airwaves. These words taken from the song so go hand in hand with asking and believing. They are:

If you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

Now I don't know what thoughts go with that song but I am going to focus on them as a reminder - the ask and you shall recieve.

Just For You...

Found this gem on Brown Eyed Fox's Blog . It's wonderful - such a feel good piece - you should watch it!!

I am paying it forward....

Becky Novacek listed Star Hitched Wagon in a blog post recently. I am always so moved when people compliment my "goods". It means so much - and it gets Star Hitched Wagon out there to people who might not know about us. Anyways her post was about places she would love to shop for the holidays.....what a great idea.
So I thought I would do the same - I would pay it forward and tell you all about the indie designers/businesses that I drool over. So here ya go:

Long Lane Boutique - this skirt is beautiful.

Brown Eyed Fox I love Soar Some More and Blushing Moxie

Live Life Inspired. Dream With Possibility! Donna Downey
Donna Downey her work is beautiful I especially love the Optimistic Swatch Print

Becky's photography is wonderful as well as her canvases. If you live around Omaha you should book with her. Our family photos were so cool!

Kelly Rae Roberts moves me! :) She just is so inspiring. I love to read her blog and her art is out of this world cool. One day a few of these will hang in my studio:
Leap Fearlessly
Let It Go
In Her Hands
This reminds me of me and my sisters.
And how cool are these magnets???

Kafe Utza has such amazing coffee and treats!! And Kara is a great gal!

Great signs for your home. I love this one.

Sadie Olive - there isn't much of here that I would want in my home!! Such beautiful stuff. I love her prints!!! Especially Red White and Blue, Red Linens, Nest, and Old Door!!!! And this corner basket is so cool an work wonderfully in my studio. Oh yeah and I love nests.

Gemini Studio Art has great canvases. I would love this one, this one and this one. How fun would it be to have a custom canvas done with street from your home town....hmmmmm......

Very fun art for your home. I love these.

Beautiful photography if you live around Mandan you should book your family photos with Joleyn!

Great stamping and scrapbooking supplies and a FANTASTIC person to inspire you. This is a fantastic kit and I love their ribbon.

Feeling Scrappy
Awesome awesome scrapbooking classes. And Jayne is pretty dang awesome herself.

I like It Kit Studios - I really need to order one of these kits soon.

I have a tad bit of a bag fetish - this is kinda fun.

Beautiful Music!! I love Jeremy Larson's songs - so good!!! You can buy them on itunes.

Well that's just a few. :) I know there are tons more that I love that I am forgetting and a ton that I am sure I would love if introduced to them - so please do share your favorited with me. I do love indie businesses!!!

6 Random Things

The Rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you Jayne
2. Post the rules on your blog (this is what you are now reading).
3. List 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up!

Here are six random things about me:

1) I make smoothies with romaine lettuce, blueberries, bananas and raspberries.

2) I stress way too much about how to live the "right" life.

3) I read Unity, Daily Word, Body and Soul, Runner's World, Simple Scrapbooks, Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks, Etc. each month or issue....

4) When I was in grade school I hit my little sister Jamie above the eye with a metal baseball bat - on accident - she was standing behind me when I swung to hit the ball.

5) I can't wait to get up in the morning to have some COFFEE.

6) I was told this year that I needed braces because of gum recession - which is something I have wanted forever - braces to fix my spaces - but after the orthadontist told me my bite would be fixed - so different - I decided against them because I like that my smile - my expression is unique.

Now I tag Jodi, Tara, Becky, Jamie (on her facebook), Ally, and Colleen
