For those of you that are not familiar with FAMU(a.k.a Florida A&M University) Homecoming, I am going to tell you it's a week long event and the city is ours for the taking. We have vendors from all around selling everything from FAMU T-Shirts to shea butter. ( I got some raw shea butter for like $5 yea!) and there are events all week, Greek and Dorm step show, a concert gospel and rap and a tone of other things. Now being I am an alumni I do sometimes participate in some of the events, but for the past two homecomings I have had to work. Bummer! But I did get a shirt. I love it and now it's over and I can get some rest. But you my friends can enjoy the funnnnn! Check out the links and pics. Enjoy I am going to sleep now. All images are located on

Natural Dyeing Relationship

Ok So since I have Graduated from SCAD I have not been very nice to my lover"Natural Dyeing".I have been promising to rekindle our love, but haven't found the time or the SPACE to start dyeing again. I am really missing the lab and the countless hours of experimenting and dyeing and producing natural dyed goodies to sell and give as gifts. So I hope not to keep neglecting my love, but all I can say is that I am trying. Until then I watch other people's relationship with natural dyeing grow and see what mine could be like later. So check out these relationships.( I have been following them for a while)Ok this is Tinctoria, I have been following them since 07'. They Use natural dyes and they dye hemp and they are located in Portland,OR. I really love they the rich colors that they can achieve on the hemp. Just Beautiful. I love how the website has changed it looks really good. One day I will buy something. But check it out!

Ok this is Tenfold,I found them around the same time I found tinctoria. I was researching natural dyes and different materials that I could dye. Cotton was my main one. So I stumbled up these wonderful people. They Dye Cotton, they sell fabric( naturally dyed of course) clothing and the dyes themselves. They are located in Seattle Washington. Again one day I will buy something from them also. I just love how there website has change and how much they have grown it's great. So check them out also.

Weekly Wisdom!

Oh yes, Weekly wisdom found on Christ Notes:
Weekly Wisdom for 10-5-09

If you puff yourself up you'll get the wind knocked right out of you.

Proverbs 16:18 says, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." This principle can be clearly seen in the life of King Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, by examining Daniel chapter 4.

King Nebuchadnezzar started out praising God and giving Him the credit: "It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that the Most High God has performed for me. How great are his signs, how mighty his wonders! His kingdom is an eternal kingdom; his dominion endures from generation to generation" (Daniel 4:2-3). Here, Nebuchadnezzar is humble.

However, over the course of a year, something happened that caused the king to begin to take credit for his circumstances: "As the king was walking on the roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, 'Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?' " (Daniel 4:29-30, italics added). Nebuchadnezzar is no longer giving God credit. Instead, he is full of pride and is puffing himself up.

However, as is always the case, "Pride goes before destruction." So, God punished Nebuchadnezzar by sending him out to live like a wild animal for seven years (See Daniel 4:31-33).

Then, Daniel 4:34 records the king's response: "At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored." Interestingly, the king said that his pride caused him to lose his sanity and that now, as a result of being humbled by God, his sanity was restored. In order to humble him, God humiliated him. Indeed, a humiliating experience will almost always humble someone.

The chapter concludes with Nebuchadnezzar's reflection: "Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble" (Daniel 4:37).

True peace only comes from the Prince of Peace.

Peace does not mean that everything around you is calm and tranquil; true peace means that you are able to remain peaceful during the storms of life.

But this peace, which the Bible promises is available to believers, can only come from God. Jesus said, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace" (John 16:33). In other words, Jesus came so that you could have peace.

Paul tells us, in Philippians 4:6-7, that we can have peace if we don't become anxious about life but instead give our worries to God: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Hand over all of your problems to the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, and He will give you a peace that passes understanding -- a peace that is beyond comprehension.
