Beautiful Blessings

I could have just left the post be this. This gorgeous sunset would be a wonderful definition of a beautiful blessing but I won't just stop at this because there are many blessings happening for me this week.
Like these Trim tags sets below that I've put together to send to Kellene Giloff, the publisher of the Stampington magazines. I've turned these into her in hopes of being published in Somerset Life. What a blessing! To be recognized in a magazine where so many other talented artists have been.

This set of Trim tags is for Jenny Doh. I thought with her love of red, white and black and music it would be fitting to name this set. "Jenny Doh Crescendo"
There are so many other Stampington magazines & calls for artwork. Here is the link for what they are looking for. If your hesitating sending in your artwork. Don't! Just give it a try. You never know who your artwork will speak to.
Here are a few new additions to the Etsy shop. Small storage tins covered in Vintage images and cool fonts, and filled with vintage trims.

A new Vibrant blue color of Crepe Paper Roses.

Here are my biggest blessings of all, my babies. Having a picnic out on the porch. We do this often but yesterday I set them up here to keep them busy while I was going in and out of the house. Bringing in the totes of Fall Decor to decorate the house. You'll have to excuse their funny outfits . We are in the middle of closet and decor transitioning from Summer to Fall. Fall is my favorite season because of the cool weather and the warm colors. I can't wait to dress them up in their jeans and sweaters.
It's time to start making dates for apple picking and going to visit the Pumpkin Patch.

My journey to becoming more spiritual has lead me to read and receive emotion from the sky. Doesn't it seem if God were using the clouds to talk to us, this sky would be saying "Everything is going to be okay"

nature is God's artwork. more amazing than we could ever imagine, huh? the bible even says that God made nature is such a way that everyone should know He exists and they will be held accountable for it. isn't that amazing? you guys are cute on the porch eating lunch. lol.

ps when you get those white and cream tags back and if you are planning on selling them on etsy, just reserve them for me! :)

I finished your zombie jar today. I am thrilled with it and hope you will be, too. I hope it ships well, I'm bundling it up tomorrow after I take LOTS of photos!

I hope you like vintage millnery, bling and a little kooky fun.

I adored your shop from first stop, the vintage daintiness combined with the ethereal charms just chimes so true:) This is my first stop here as well and I am enchanted by your blog... Its very fun to find a mommy etsian who shares the same joy in faith and the blessing of motherhood... its prompted me to maybe write a bit more about that part of our life at my blogger, if you get a change fly by and say hi!
