a little sugar 'n spice... ♥

just puttin' my heart out here a bit...

for such a long time now i've dreamed of having a cute little etsy shop
and filling it with the things i love to make

but the time was never right
it wasn't my season in life
it wasn't in His plan at the time

then i sat on it for so long...i hesitated so often
what if people don't buy anything?
what if it's not perfect?
what if it takes too much time away from my family?
what if it's not what i'm really good at?
what if it's too much work?

i took my husband's advice...
you will make the time, and have the resolve to do the things that you really want to do...
you just have to start ♥

life has been changing...seasons have been changing
and with all worries aside, i'm slowly but surely living out this dream
this plan He has for me...and i've never been so excited!
and i'm so thankful i get to share it with all of you ♥

all these pics are sneak peeks into some of my craziness!
my supplies & product for Sugar & Spice...

so i share this to encourage you to tap into His will for you
what is His calling on your life?
what does He want you to focus on right now, in this season?
ask God today what His plans are for you ♥

(you can get to it from the link in my sidebar too)

i'm sharing this at Funky Junk...Donna's amazing idea of a challenge
The One Scary Thing Challenge via Funky Junk Interiors 


  1. OH this is something I've been wanting to do too, for so long. You seem to have it pretty together over here. I'm bumbling around and not knowing what direction to go with an etsy shop.
    I want it to be the right reasons ;of course,money is always a reason (but where is the fun in that?)
    One thing you've pointed out is knowing God's calling... I've failed in that area and haven't asked. Shame on me!
    I hope this scary dream comes true for you and of course If it is the LORD'S will then it must.
    Me? I've got some SEEKING to do... and must get to work either way!

    nice to me you, found you through Donna's challenge, best wishes to you, Pat

  2. I would love to do this, too! Kudos to you and GOOD LUCK!!

  3. Oh goodness girl.. you are living most of our dreams! Good for you on just going for it!

    You will do incredibly well with photography like this. That's 99% of the battle right there. This is so exciting! Congrats! What an honour to use your gorgeous craft room for something so worthy.


  4. Yay! So excited for you! I am in the same mindset that you were in. Self-doubt sucks! I am encouraged by you. Can't wait to see what you are working on! xo

  5. lovin the photos! can't wait to see what you are up to!! how exciting!


  6. Your pictures are amazing - they make me want to do many craft projects :-D. I'm so excited for you getting to live out your dream. Yea, for knowing you needed to wait for His timing - sometimes that is so hard, yet it really is the easiest way to go about getting big things done. (I found you through Donna's scary challenge)

  7. I am enjoying your blog. Consider this: you do have talent which will enable to you sell your crafts on Etsy, but I think your true calling is ministry. Whether you realize it or not, you are ministering to others here on this blog. Thank you, your post was exactly what I needed today.

  8. Jame, I'm so happy for you! Can't wait to see the shop. I know it will be too cute!

  9. Thanks for sharing your heart and such lovely, Godly inspiration for the rest of us.

  10. Wow, you are so amazingly creative! I'm in awe. I saw your craft room featured on iheartorganizing and just had to stop by your blog. And your blog name--super clever how you tied it to Proverbs 31.
