What at blessed Holy Week! I have been really busy, and now I am just sitting back and relaxing… Ahhh!
I won $50 credit at The Summery Umbrella Etsy shop. I fell in love with this shelf.
I was amazed at the super fast shipping and the ability to custom order with my color choice. They have some great signs and chalkboards too! But since I make signs and chalkboard also, I went for something different.
Here is a close up of one of my chalkboards. I picked up the HUGE frame for $8 at Hobby Lobby. I added a piece of plywood, painted with chalkboard paint. I painted and distressed the frame. Now I can change seasonal accents to my hearts desire!
I love the color and distressing on the corner shelf. It works so well with the colors in my house!
We have friends who are missionaries in France. We met Charles and Amy Cross when we lived in Dallas and hadn’t seen them in over 10 years. They are currently in the states for a few months with their SIX children. Since God has blessed me more with talents than money, I wanted to be used while they are here. So I have offered to bake cakes for the family birthdays while the Crosses are in town.
I particularly enjoyed this cake, for Thomas was not only celebrating his birthday today, Easter Sunday, he was also making a public confession of his faith through believer’s baptism. Happy Rebirth Day Thomas!
If you ever feel that you can not be a blessing financially to your church or others, search your heart and your talents and let God use you! I have learned to see God working through my creativity and am constantly amazed!
There were 20 of us at the farm this weekend to celebrate Easter. I finally got to see & snuggle with my new great nephew, Jaxon. He is SOO sweet and has the cutest little bend in his ear!
As I leave you with a peak into our weekend,
Y’all have a blessed evening and a beautiful April! Love, Whyt
Lauren and Sweet Jaxon
