Sewing: God's way of taking my mind off of WAITing!

God sure knows how I operate. He knows what keeps me busy and focused. He knows what keeps my head from going crazy with this wait. I'm blessed that He gave me the talent of sewing!

Over the past few weeks I have been a sewing maniac! Mostly orders from my Etsy shop. Some days I get to take a "break" from orders and get to create new items...but lately it's been all orders! Thank you Jesus!
ALL of the proceeds from my shop go toward our adoption fund. I always give God the glory. He is really blessing my fundraising efforts through my sewing!

So this past weekend I added a couple new items to my shop including these personalized burp rags...

This new birthday hat... personalized with the name, not the number. REusable year after year!

I had another order for a jewelry/photo board. . .
Did some cute personalized 1st birthday bibs.
And... this short set. Not my pick of fabric, but it turned out cute.
So needless to say I have been keeping myself busy.

My family has been busy as well!!
Laynie (my 15yr old in Sept, step-daughter) has started HS softball practice. I can't believe it's already that time of year! She's excited and I am looking forward to seeing her blossom this first year of high school!!!
Blake (my 11yr old step-son) is starting Fall baseball practice next week. Our house is all about the ball!!! Blake is an excellent baseball player and the older he gets the more enjoyable it is to watch him play.
Clint (my hubby) has been working on the nursery transformation. He's completely done with the outside and now gets to enjoy working indoors in the airconditioning!! He's doing such a wonderful job! I thank God for my husband every day!


  1. Wow, what a busy household! Pics of the nursery?

  2. Oh, and those jewelry holders are really cute!
