Christmas....let's lay it out straight.

It has been awhile since I was this excited about Christmas! I have several craft shows coming up and so I've been working hard trying to figure out the best looks in a range of prices.
I have four official looks for ornaments this year. I'll post one picture for each look. You can view more photos at
I also have a few different decor sets available (also photographed on my site) but I'll make this blog simply about ornaments! I think they are so cute, I wish I could sell ornaments all year long. You will probably see me come up with an idea to do so! lol.
Let me know if you have questions about anything. These ornaments shown here are $8 each or six ornaments for $40.00. These ornaments will not break or shatter. They will be something to treasure and pass down from generation to generation!
I'm super excited about decorating my tree this year. I won't have to dig out the hooks and almost have a heart attack when my cat starts swiping at the balls. My two year old won't break these...the list goes on and on. :)

My Grandma loved me!

I just read my brother's blog and it so inspired me to write my own. My grandma was an amazing woman of God. She was not my dad's birth mother, but she was the only mother he really knew. His birth mother (Ruby) died when he was five. Eva, was one of his dad's old love interests before he met Ruby. Ruby died of cancer and when she did, Elmer went to find Eva to propose and request her help in raising his four children. It is such a love I'm still learning. From what I have heard, Elmer wasn't too romantic about it and Eva had a lot to consider...taking on all those four unruly and sad children. She took it all on though, and with amazing grace as my dad has remembered. She was one lovely lady!

Eva and Elmer lived very long lives together. They ate good breakfasts, took long walks and read their bible every day. The thing that saddened me the most when they died, was the feeling that the prayer covering for me would be no more. My revelation left me little at that time, not enough to understand how much greater my support had become and "cloud of witnesses" would be in heaven. Thank you Lord for my heritage, my inheritance, and for your tangibility revealed in the lives of my grandparents! What an earthly treasure stored up for me.

Here is a poem she had copied into her Bible and a photo of her when she was turning 100. She went home when she was one hundred years old. The photo of the young woman is my Grandma Ruby who died when my dad was five. She too was an amazing woman, who I so want to learn more about, and when I shall hear about it as well!
