The Paisley Chicks are back and getting in the Christmas spirit!

They have carefully climbed up in the attic and retrieved their winter gear.
Boots, scarves, hats and leg warmers are a must.
The excitement is building!
A busy day is ahead...
they have a tree to decorate with love.
Oh, how they are working together to get the job done....
whistling and singing while they work

and now
it's off to the Christmas Parade for sure.
The Paisley Chicks have decided to do more than just attend the parade ....
they want to be in the parade!
Hurry now, there is so much to be done.
A float...not enough time.
"Oh no...what can we do?"
Red Hen has an idea,
Tape, paper, stickers, glue, markers and some glitter too.
A beautiful banner...
Oh yes, that will do!
A banner of LOVE
carried high for all to see.

They have learned this year...
It is all about The Gift of Jesus
and the love He has for you and me.
He loved people so much...He gave the very best
Now He wants us to do the same.

Just wanted to share a few photos from the July 2009 Gatlinburg Craftmen's Fair. This was our first time attending this show. We met so many wonderful customers and fellow exhibitors. I fell in love with Alewine Pottery. Their booth was right across from ours. So I came home with some great pottery gifts and also a new friend named Becky all from that one booth! Her joy and love for the Lord was a great encouragement to us every day at the show. It was quite an adventure getting there and then getting back home....It was a great week.

He IS Worthy!

WOW! I am behind in keeping this blog updated. I have been very busy and it doesn't seem like it will be slowing down anytime soon.

I have several new designs since the last post. I'm working on getting them listed in my online gift shop and in my ebay store. Taking the photos is what always seem to slow me down. Progress is being made slowly :)

In February our church's Women's Minsitry held a Winter Women's Retreat. I was a teacher for one of the sessions. My topic was "The Lord is My Shepherd". I learned so much about sheep and shepherds and was very overwhelmed the more I realized what it meant to have Jesus, the Good Shepherd as my shepherd. Throughout my time of preparation for the retreat and even during the retreat my mind was flooded with "He is Worthy". It would go over and over like a marquee sign. Being a part of the planning and preparation was a very humbling experience. I still feel speechless and overwhelmed by God's presence that weekend. From the weekend came a new design. I've called it the "He is Worthy Cross". I couldn't rest until I got that design out of my head and onto paper :) It is now available in prints, cards and tiles. I even experimented with bookmarks.
