It's official!

My girls think they are superstars, now that they are in print.


If you are local (Shakopee Minnesota), clear your calendars for February 20th and come hang out with us at Eagle Creek Quilt Shop. The girls are getting ready for their runway debut *tee*hee*. And Amy and I sat down last night to finalize our sewing timeline. Lots of fun in store and we'd love you to join us.


If you'd like a glimpse of the class I did 3 years ago (when Amy and I met), go here.
I'm the 9th picture into their slideshow.

Custom Address Stamp {Giveaway}


I had to come tell you about the great opportunity you have to win a custom return address stamp by none other than Crystal Kluge. She is a professional lettering artist and illustrator and has designed the most gorgeous fonts. I'm sure you'll recognize some of them when you take a look. Her fonts are seen in countless magazines (including the new Pottery Barn glitter word ornaments this year) and they are all over Etsy.

Crystal is also married to my cousin Christian and she's done all of the important invitations and announcements for his family. I have saved every one of them, they are such beautiful works of art. Oh and if you are lucky enough to receive an envelope that's been lettered by hand, well then that would truly be a beautiful day. And I'm not biased either. ;) Just look at her portfolio! I think her wedding invitation maps are my favorite.

Hop on over to the blog of Pretty Girl Designs and enter to win your own custom return address stamp. This would be perfect for those Christmas cards. I so want one of these for myself, but figure I should let everyone else have a chance at winning instead. Contest ends tomorrow Friday Dec 3rd.

Now off with you!

Finding encouragement

In these little loves...


and in God's Truth.

I had printed all of these (and several more) for my dad. But I'm finding them to be of great comfort to me as well.

Jeremiah 17:7
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD

Psalm 34:18
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit

Psalm 46:1-2
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.

Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Nahum 1:7
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,

Matthew 11:25-30
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God

1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Chronicles 16:11
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

Thanks, friends.
