{Journaling Bible} My newest craft endeavor

Hi Crafters,

I recently stumbled on the #inspiredart and #journalingbible hashtags on instagram and pinterest. Needless to say it intrigued me and I spent hours looking at all the artwork people had created.

I purchased my own ESV single column journaling Bible from amazon. I was a bit afraid where to start because it seems so permanent but I knew I just had to start somewhere. I am also not my #1 fan of my own handwriting, again something I had to just get over.
My great aunt passed away just after her 100th birthday a few weeks ago. This was one of the scriptures they shared at her service it really spoke to me especially being a mountain dweller myself. 

This style of quiet time is perfect for me. It blends in my hobbies with my faith making it something that I will treasure years to come when I look back. I was even able to incorporate some cricut cuts in the one above. 

If this is something you are intersested in be sure to check out Shanna Noel's blog it's filled with some great information about getting started on this artfully inspired journey!

Happy Crafting,

{DIY Kids Valentine Kit}

Hi Crafters,

Valentine's Day will be here in less than a month. It's one of my favorite holidays to craft is my favorite!
I grabbed a few flatrate boxes from my local post office and filled them with some DIY goodies. I love the idea of subscription craft boxes for my nieces and nephews but they are REALLY expensive. I was able to make these with supplies I already had on hand. I cut out some hearts and used the cricut explore to write out "you" in a fun valentine's font I downloaded.  I included some glue dots so there wouldn't be a big mess for almost 5 year old niece or almost 2 year old nephew. I threw in some googly eyes to complete the "eye heart you" sentiment. I prefolded some A2 cards in various colors and included envelopes as well.

I printed out some labels for the boxes and added some pink and red washi tape to complete the package and off they went in the mail. I hope they enjoy crafting up some valentine's love!

Happy Crafting
