When I started to create products for The Print Shop I wanted a place where I could display them 1. to keep me motivated & 2. I needed something on those freshly painted walls! I wanted to be able to easily switch things out and frames were not going to allow that!
Before coming to know Jesus I tried to fill the God-sized hole in my heart with things. I was lustful for things, clothes I wouldn’t wear, journals I wouldn’t even write in, candles I wouldn’t burn. You name it, if it was pretty I wanted it. Now that I know Jesus as my Savior I know that no amount of stuff can bring me joy, only He can do that. But my habit of wanting things is a harder habit to kick than I thought. When I have a bad day I can sometimes find myself wanting to go buy something to make me feel better instead of just turning to God in prayer.
Christmas is quickly approaching and I often get frustrated that as a society we’ve created Christmas to be about gifts, songs, movies and decorations. We’ve changed the symbol of Christmas from a cross to a tree.
It honestly doesn’t even seem like Christmas is NEXT week, WHAT?! Between my mission trip in the Dominican with 90 degree weather to it being in the 70’s here at home and then add in that this year has straight up gone by way to fast I’m just plum not ready for Christmas to be here! And I LOVE Christmas. But it’s coming whether I’m ready for it or not!
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! Thank you for letting me take a week and a half off for my mission trip (post coming soon) and then to get my life back to normal! I’m still in the process of finishing up decorating for Christmas but cross your fingers and your toes I’ll be able to show you on Monday! To hold you over until then I’ve created a free printable for you!
Happy Thanksgiving friends! I’m beyond blessed and unfortunately sometimes I forget that until this time of year rolls around.
Since starting back up blogging around mid October and really giving this a go I’ve had over 2,000 views and around 1,000 visitors to my little space in the vastness that is the internet and it is blowing me away! So for those of you taking the time to read this or any of my other posts, I am thankful for you. I can’t wait to see how this blog and myself continue to grow!
This is diy is so simple I almost feel silly posting it. It’s also nothing new, I feel like you could consider this a #throwbackthursday of Pinterest. It seems like there is a handful of projects I specifically remember the first time I logged into Pinterest, this is definitely one of them. But sometimes it nice to do something simple and east yet still beautiful!
We all want to feel known. We want our family and friends to know our likes and dislikes and our ins and outs and for them to just “get” us. Every single person wants to feel known, no one is immune to it.
I have a love for quotes. I also have a love for displaying them in my house. And while I love to make printables I just don’t always have the time or energy to make one for every quote I happen to love. It’s just not practical. The solution to my problem? A diy faux framed chalkboard. I can easily swap out quotes as my heart pleases or tailor it to fit the current season or holiday!
Y’all I’m so stinkin’ excited!!! This is my first tablescape EVER! We have a small kitchen table (that is just asking for a paint job) and we go to my parent’s house for Thanksgiving so I kind of thought why bother? But it was something I really want to do, so to heck with it I’m decorating my table even if it’s only us that gets to enjoy it! So here’s my farmhouse Thanksgiving tablescape:
