insta march & april's free calendar ♥

hello april!
did you download & print your free march calendar last month? i had so much fun with mine!

use it to mark off your bible reading, 
to use on your bible journaling pages or right in your planner! 

march was a full month! a busy etsy shop, lots of birthdays and some fun trips

my girl AmyJ. made these doll sized stickers to use on my packages
my happy mail just got waaaay more fun :)

that too legit sign is my new favorite :: from here

i added tons of new things to my etsy shop this past month!
including these NEW laminated, adhesive bible tabs ♥

watch this video here to see how i used washi tape to decorate the bible tab pages of my bible

a few new necklace designs were added as well with matching bible journaling cards

not sure what to do with my journaling cards??

i love these lyrics from big daddy weave :: you can listen to the song here

these planner & bible journaling JUMBO paper clips are a NEW addition to the shop too!!

  3. I was delighed to find your sweet blog today while I was visting Misty's blog. My husband and I have raised up two beautiful rubies (our daughters Andrea and Alicia) who are now married adults, and serving the Lord in full-time ministry. God is SO good. My focus now is on our baby boy (Andrew, 16) and enjoying watching him grow into the young man God has raised him up to be. It's so exciting, and it's always a blessing to find a blog like this with so much encouragement for the journey. Thanks for sharing your talents in this fun way that glorifies our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Have a blessed day, and feel free to pop my blog time to say hello any time you can.
