More Seeds of Hope

I had such a great time making the ATC's yesterday, that I decided to make another batch for trade today. I'm in such a different stage in my life right now. I have been planting flowers like crazy. My Sister's say that I'm finally nesting. Hmm...maybe there is hope for me yet. I'm no Martha Stewart, that is for sure! I'm not a very domestic person, but I find myself wanting to be home more lately and really enjoying the contentment of just sitting on my deck and taking in the beauty of God's existence in such simple pleasures as a flower....

Off to plant, but if you are interested in trading for one of these ATC's, drop me a note.

Seeds of Hope

I'm in an ATC swap with a small group of folks and thought I would finish mine as the deadline quickly arrives. Where has this year gone? The schools are already finishing up for the summer and it seems like they the school buses were just starting their routes...

I had prepared these backrounds quite some time ago, but needed to try something new, thus the purpose of the ATC swap...something new we haven't tried before. One of the suggested categories was sewing. Although I have sewn before, I had never sewn on an ATC. Sometimes ideas just flow into my head and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I wanted to "sew" seeds of Hope. So I encased real seeds in a vinyl pocket. I really liked the way they turned out.

Wishing you a great weekend!
