That’s When God Wants to Hear You Sing

27 Jul

Their chains were fastened tight
Down at the jail that night
Still Paul and Silas would not be dismayed
They said, “It’s time to lift our voice, sing praises to the Lord
Let’s prove that we will trust Him come what may”

God wants to hear you sing
When the waves are crashing ’round you
When the fiery darts surround you
When despair is all you see
God wants to hear your voice
When the wisest man has spoken
And says, “Your circumstance is as hopeless as can be”
That’s when God wants to hear you sing

He loves to hear our praise on our cheerful days
When the pleasant times outweigh the bad, by far
But when suffering comes along
And we still sing Him songs
That is when we bless the Father’s heart.

 

This song has been running through my head lately. It’s not so easy to sing in the darker hours of life. But those times are often when we learn to trust God more. God is faithful and is with us in all our circumstances!

Carseat Canopy

19 Jul

Baby Carseat canopy is perfect for protecting your precious baby! It is fully lined and made of cotton. The top ties keep the cover in place and still allow you access to the handle of the car seat. The back is made of a coordinating cotton fabric. The ruffle on the peek-hole is made of the same fabric as the back. The front bottom edge is finished with blue piping. The ties are wide red ribbon.  The bonus strap-covers are made of the same fabrics. They velcro over the straps. The canopy is perfect for protecting your baby from the weather.

This Baby Canopy is lovingly hand-made by my sister-in-law. She has two children she dearly loves, and is very creative in making things for them and others.  We are planning to offer more of these covers so please check back.

The canopy will be perfect for your baby or for a baby shower gift! Head on over to my shop for more details! Let me know what fabrics and colors you would like to see in this item!

God is Great

13 Jul

This treasury is one of the most unique treasurys I have seen! Can you see the prayer in it?

It took me awhile to see it.

Other than its uniqueness, it has a good message! It is good for me to remember that God is very great and all my blessings are from Him!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of Lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

Click on the picture of the treasury to go to etsy and see all the shops with these lovely items! This treasury was made by fibremom, featuring the shop FoundOnThePrairie who is the shop of the week in the Fruit of Her Hands Team.

New Gift Bags

12 Jul

I used to make gift bags from fabric scraps we had laying around here and people gave me, like this. That is fine with me, but they weren’t selling very good, at least not very fast! :/ I then went off to JoAnns and bought me some fabrics that I thought looked a bit more stylish. 😉 Those aren’t selling that fast either. …

I did sell two of the pink polka dot ones!

 I can’t decide which is my favorite; I love them all!

This picture makes the brown & blue bags look really nice, I think! Wouldn’t that be fun to be having a party and line up all the bags like this!

What fun you could have packing all your small things in pretty pink bags to put in your suitcase! I forgot to take a picture of the suitcase so these are just sitting here ready to go in. 🙂

If you aren’t having a party or traveling you can use this lime green drawstring bag for a cute purse on your shopping trip!

The lavender stripe bag is perfect for storing little projects.

Visit my etsy shop for more info on these bags and others! Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July

9 Jul

I made a coupon code to use as a Christmas in July sale, but in the meantime someone in an Etsy team suggested using this website to run sales:

https://www.etsyonsale.com/sellers?referralCode=NXMHZEYBVN

I checked it out and I am so glad I did! It was super easy to make a sale, and mark every item through their program instead of going through and doing it manually. It’s a site that allows you to easily run a sale in your Etsy shop, change tags for items all at once, and auto renew items on a schedule you set.  You can watch the demo video at the link above.  Plus, if you login and link up your Etsy shop you will get a total of $10 in free credits to use.

So right now every item in my shop is on sale! I have been adding 1 or 2 items almost every day so go check it out and see if there is anything just right for you.

Happy Shopping!
