I have discovered that doodling which I have done most of my life (especially while talking on the phone) is actually an art.  And I have discovered that I really enjoy doodling!  I love paper.  I love different writing instruments. So I am working on some doodling to create greeting cards, note cards & tags and having so much fun! 

My daughter, Wendy, and her husband are coming home this weekend and I am really excited.  We will be celebrating her birthday with family & friends.

My favorite verse this week is "Be still and know that I am God"  Psalm 46:10.  I have been consciously trying to do just that.  Sometimes in all the hurry scurry of life I forget to listen.  And God has really reminded me of that this week.

He is also reminding me to trust Him with all my heart.  And I do.

God's Direction

I have gone in several directions since first opening my shop on Etsy.  I have prayed, "Lord, what do you want me to do here on Etsy?" 

After several weeks of going back & forth.  Praying.  It became clear that I needed to take my prayer & card ministry one step further.  I have been involved with my card ministry for several years, purchasing cards from Lifeway most of the time. Many times wishing the wording was just a bit different for the situation where I was sending the card.  So now I will be  making my own cards to send to those people who God leads me to for encouragement.

I am very excited to be able to share my line of cards & tags on Etsy while furthering my card ministry at the same time.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

The rain has begun.  Tropical Storm Isaac is churning it's way up towards the Panhandle of Florida but we are pressing on.  My daughter, Wendy, is getting married on Saturday no matter where Isaac lands.  And she will be beautiful.

I am spending lots of time in my studio getting more pendants ready to list.  As I look outside and ponder the results of Isaac on our community I am reminded that God is Always in charge and He will take care of us.  That promise is so wonderful!

I pray everyone is safe on this rainy Monday.

Hello Everyone!

After much thought & prayer I have decided to re-open my Etsy shop and feature my vintage map pendants.  I took 9-10 months off from Etsy but I missed the Etsy community and the creativeness that I achieve with my pendants.

I have several of my pendants from my previous inventory and I will soon be adding new pendants.

I love custom orders!  Let me know which place is your favorite for your pendant.

Hugs to all my friends!

Busy in My Studio

I am looking forward to this weekend where I hope to be spending lots of time in my studio.  Working on my pendants is very relaxing to me.  I love my fulltime job working at the church but I always look forward to time spend working on my Etsy shop.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
