Today marks 7 years since my first blog post... I love blogging - creating, writing, scheduling, musing, all in my own little space. Thanks for meeting me here, in my colorful little giving space.
Thanks for those of you who have reached out to me, and connected with me personally, through emails and comments and your own giving hearts. I got this email recently, which blew me away...
I've been following your work on your blog and at Splitcoaststampers for a long time. I almost feel as if you're family! I was there 'with' you as you and your family did missionary work in Indonesia, and made the trip back home to the US with you. I'm a big fan of your work...both your art and ministry work. You are like family to me and I want you to help spread God's perfect love through your art ministry.
Your art ministry has touched my heart in so many ways. Not only do I feel I can relate to you as a mother, wife and Christian, I also relate to you as an artist. I know that your talent, as well as every person's talent, is a gift from God. I love that you continue to emphasize that. Both my sister and I feel so touched by your selfless sharing of your time and talent that we want to give back, and I felt a hand on my heart to want to help support your ministry. I know it's important to keep current, and tithing to your ministry by donating supplies (or monetary gifts via Paypal) is something I feel called to do.
I remember you mentioning several places you have wish lists for art supplies. Would you please share your wish lists and Paypal address? Thank you so much for everything!
That means so much to me on multiple levels.... thank you! I created a page HERE where I've listed links to my wish lists, along with affiliate sites that reward me with a portion of any purchase you make when you click through from my blog. I'm so humbled by this request - thank you!
It wouldn't be a birthday without some PRESENTS, right?? - I have a couple of envelopes here waiting to be sent out to TWO lucky commenters!
Leave me a comment below before Thursday Oct. 31 at midnight Eastern Time, and I'll announce the winners in my Friday post! Each prize package contains a 9" x 12" decorative stencil, a classic set of Spellbinders Nestabilities shape dies, 3 yards of black gingham ribbon, a 4" mini canvas, and a mini Valentine stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! I'll tuck one of the Pooh cards from this post in as well. :)
Thank you again for all you do to encourage me with each new post I write! Have a wonderful, colorful week.
