Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Daisy by Elisabeth Bell is BACK!!!

Hi everyone!

I have some very exciting news!!!! Elphine House Australia is releasing "Daisy" as a new stamp!!!

If you're already an Elisabeth Bell fan, you probably know who "Daisy" is. She is probably one of the most loved images by Elisabeth, and has been unavailable to purchase for quite a while now. I fell in love with this image from the moment I saw it and it was then that I learned who Elisabeth Bell was. I was never able to purchase this before, and I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have her! Being on Elphine House's Design Team and being able to work with this, is icing on the cake!!!

In honor of "Daisy" returning, EHA is having a special celebration/challenge on their Blog which you can read all about it here. It's called "Welcome back Daisy using Fall colors". Here is my creation using Daisy for the first time ever!
