Sewing Machine!

Hello everyone!
So, for Christmas I got a sewing machine, which was such a huge surprise, and I just couldn't wait to start sewing!  But I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong with setting it up!
I tried every little thing, and then I was so confused, that it took me almost 2 months to try again!

BUT, I just couldn't wait any longer, and I took a look again two days ago, and I FIGURED IT OUT!
I feel kind of silly now, but I didn't realize before that I didn't even have the bobbin set up!
Well, I finally got it all together, and then tried it out...


I started dancing around my room and went to tell just about everyone in our house that it was working!
It was a truly wonderful moment for me.
I'm always thinking of things I could sew now!
It has beautiful different stitches, and I tested all of them.  Me and my mom both loved seeing the patterns together!

Would you like to see a picture of my sewing corner?
I love my sewing corner ♥
Do you sew? I just can't wait to start making some skirts and what-not for my self.
Lots of modest clothing for sure! (:
I always want to be sewing now!
And I will be sharing all of the different things I sew on here!

Oh! And I will be putting a beauty post up tomorrow on how I did my pin-curls and how they turned out! here's a little preview picture of that post :

Thanks for reading!

Valentine's Day and Family Night

Hello Lovely Readers!
Today I wanted to say THANK YOU!
For reading, and commenting and following and EVERYTHING!
I love reading your comments and hearing what everybody has to say!
And all of these comments have been SO sweet and encouraging!
It really has just made me so happy! (:

Today i wanted to write a post on yesterday and today.
Yesterday, my mama made a GINORMOUS pot of homemade soup and homemade bread to go with it, and it was just one of those evenings where you are all cozy and happy being with your family and just sitting around sort of chatting and then eating and then chatting some more!
Here's a picture of the beautiful soup cooking : 
It was heavenly! (:

And here's what the bread dough looked like before it was baked :


It was so scrumptious!
There really is nothing like homemade soup and bread made by the amazing cook I call my mama! (:
We all watched the Grammy's together, and us girls - me, my sister, and my mom, - all talked about our favorite dresses, and looks.  There are some crazy ones!  But I LOVED  Carrie Underwood's white dress, and Katy Perry's blue one.  The dresses both were very modest and very beautiful!
Some weren't very modest at all *cough cough FERGIE cough cough!*
But i think that's what makes it funny to watch and see some people's crazy ideas of dresses (:
Some people just don't have modesty at all!  but judging aside, I loved the performances, and almost everyone sounded great! 
 And I loved seeing The Band Perry and Taylor Swift perform, I love their music! Kimberly Perry wore the most gorgeous skirt ever during her performance! and Taylor wore a beautiful dress during hers! I think award shows are so fun. They actually are great for getting ideas for different looks too!  Do you like award shows?
I personally love them (:

Oh, and today we are doing lots of Valentine's Day preparations!  Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays!
I always do decorating the night before, after the little one's go to bed, so that it's a surprise the next morning!
Me and my Mom went to the grocery store and bought some goodies for tomorrow!
We're making some rainbow waffles for breakfast, and we got some absolutely wonderful delicous looking strawberries :

And we got some whipped-cream to dip them in! Oh, and of course there will be lots and lots of chocolate! MY FAVORITE!  Let's hope I can wait until tomorrow (;
I absolutely can't wait!
I love Valentine's Day ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

And for all of you wonderful people who commented about me doing a beauty post, I positively am!
And I think it might be fridays and saturdays, or saturdays and sundays that I do them!
But of course there might be a random beauty post at any time!  You know I'm always doing something girly!
Tonight I'm trying out pin-curls, - I got LOTS of pins when we went shopping earlier today! -
And I can't wait to see how they turn out!
If anybody wants, I can do a post on that also! (:
Have a lovely day everyone!

My New Hair and Seth's Birthday!

So, My hair is dyed! I really love it!  We're doing it in a few steps, because I didn't want to do anything crazy all in one step! Here is the result! (:

You can see that it got rid of the darker roots and bottoms of my hair! And it made my hair feel really nice!
It felt a lot softer and shinier.
The reason i am wearing a different shirt in the result picture, is because we got some hair dye on that pink sweat-shirt (:
The next step will make it lighter, and since I have such long hair, just one kit was hardly enough to cover all of it!  I really love the result!
So, it says in the directions, that you can't get your hair wet for at least 24 hours, so my next few showers I will be wearing my favorite little shower cap with flowers on it! Here's a picture of that :

It is the loveliest shower cap i've ever seen! It's so girly! just like me! My wonderful Mama got it for me (:

That shower cap is one of my favorite things! You just can't help but feel glamorous wearing it! 

It was also my sweet little brother Seth's 1st birthday today! Here's a picture of him eating a birthday cupcake :
As you can see he loves icing! Just like me (:
He is such a blessing.

So, I am thinking about starting a day on my blog that I post an article just about beauty things... 
I can't think of a good name though! I need to work on that...
Do you like the beauty post idea? make sure to comment and tell me! I love hearing your lovely thoughts! (:

Hair, Beauty, and Modesty!

Hi  everybody!  So today is one of my first beauty articles.. woo-hoo!
So the first thing i want to talk about is i'm dying my hair.  I'm going a lighter blonde! - i'm naturally blonde -
And by lighter i mean a lot lighter! I have gold-ish blonde hair right now. in summer it gets lighter with natural highlights from the sunshine, but i want something permanent! It's going to be white-blonde.  i can't wait!

I might get it done tomorrow! I love being homeschooled, it always allows everything to work, without having to do everything after school!
I will make sure to do a post on a before and after of my hair.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

So the next thing i want to talk about is my favorite beauty things!
There's just something so wonderful about being a girl.
I love doing my hair, trying new products, hot rolling my hair, playing with makeup, and of course clothing!
I have a little " glamour area " in my room, where i do my makeup and hair, and can try out new things!
I love it.  I think that every girl loves to primp a little!
As I said in my last post, i don't do crazy makeup, because i most certainly don't want to cover up the face that the Lord blessed me with! (:
But I think that it's a lot of fun to play around.  And with subtle touches, like a little eye-shadow, you can really make your eye-color brighten up and stand out!  And with touches like these you're not covering anything, you're

accentuating what you are blessed with!

I'll definitely be doing hair and beauty ideas on here!  Natural and fun!

And for clothing, like I said in my other post, I dress modestly, and I love it! (:  

     My sweet baby brother and I! and that is my favorite denim skirt in the world! (:

And I feel that modest dressing is something almost everyone forgets about!
One of the best compliments to me is when someone tells me " You're so modest! "
I feel like modesty is such a great thing.
I am slowly starting to wear just skirts! I want to wear skirts all the time, and i want to start sewing some too !

Well I better get some sleep!
Love in Christ -

Well Hello!

Well here goes my first post!  I am so excited to be a blogger now!  I have gotten so much inspiration from other blogs, that i decided i would make one myself and maybe i'll inspire someone to do the same thing!  Well, I bet you would like to know a little bit more about who i am!
My name is Mia Janine.
I'm 13 - ALMOST 14! - 
I have been homeschooled my whole entire life and it is just amazing to have my amazing mom as my teacher! we're best friends!  we are so close, and it's just a blessing to be learning from her each day.
I love talking to God. He has helped me through everything in my life, and I find so much comfort in the fact that I always have Him by my side to help me be the best I can be.  He is amazing, and i always have Him to take my fears away. 
My family has a farm so i am a true farm-girl! and i love it so so much!
I love Jesus!
I want to be a baker/chef when i'm older!  I want to have my own bakery and sell pastries and cupcakes and all sorts of sweet things!  I've been cooking with my mama for as long as i can remember, and she has taught me wonderful things about cooking! from making homemade bread, to our secret spaghetti recipe!  She is the best cook i know!
I LOVE TEA!  Hot tea, sweet tea, iced tea, You name it! My mom makes the best sweet iced tea in the world though!
I love beauty.  I love playing with makeup, - nothing too crazy though, i like being natural and flaunting the face the Lord blessed  me with (: -  and i love doing all sorts of beauty things, like painting my nails, doing different hairstyles, and trying out different recipes for face masks and stuff like that!  I plan to share those kind of things on here too! I'll most definitely start a beauty article maybe for once a week or twice a week!
And I also enjoy dressing girly and modestly! - I love love love my long denim skirt! - i feel that the possibilities are endless for feminine dressing!  that is ANOTHER section i'll be doing on here for modest dressing!
Oh, and I love nature so much ♥

WELL, I think that's it!  Even though there's SO MUCH more about me i think i've told you a lot about who i am, and i'm sure you'll learn much more as this blog goes on!  I hope you have a great day!
