An Awesome Sunday

-In Christ Alone-

I first heard this song sung by Travis Cottrell at a Beth Moore conference in San Antonio and I just can't get enough of it. We sang it in church today and even though I can't sing a note, I just had to "make a joyful noise" today! I found a youtube link and thought I'd share:

I hope it touches your heart as much as it does mine!

Vintage Button Rings

Remember those vintage buttons that my mom rescued from my grandmother's old house?
Well, I managed to find a bit of time during the holidays to make some rings for my mom and cousins for Christmas. The buttons were metal, plastic, and porcelain or ceramic.
Everyone really liked them - cute and sentimental!

I love the textures!

I have quite a few white ones, so I think my next project will be button tassels. I haven't quite figured out how, but I can picture them!

Spring Easter Crosses Arriving

I just love spring and fortunately in South Texas, it always starts early! We have already had a hard freeze, so we're all hoping that the worst of our winter is gone with just a few cold snaps leading up to spring!
My shop is full of hearts for Valentine's Day, but I was also inspired to start my spring collection of crosses a bit early!

The blue and green are already available and the pink, apricot, and yellow will be in before Sunday morning.

The tooth fairy came to our house

One day right before Christmas my kids and I were talking about braces and teeth and all of I sudden I thought, my kindergartener should be about ready to have a loose tooth. Well I reached over and wiggled a tooth and sure enough, both bottom teeth were really loose!

I'm glad I had time to warn her because one came out that week and the next one came out two weeks later. She was so excited when the tooth fairy came to visit!
