Psalm 62

"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:1-2

We have just finished filling out a police report for another attempted burglary. Alan set up measures to ensure it would be very difficult for someone to break into the house and set specific obstacles that they would need to move before attempting to break in. The obstacles have been moved and there is a crack in the wood of the door from the garage to the back yard where it has been pulled on very hard. Alan made the decision to call the police and file a report in light of our having been robbed around the first of December. The officer agreed with us that there had definitely been an attempted break-in. We are beyond thankful to God again for His protection over our family and household. Please join with us in praying for the cessation of these events and attempts to steal from my family.

Busy Bee

I'm working on building my Etsy shop and trying hard to be dedicated to listing frequently, networking with other Etsy buyers/sellers and really finding the products and styles that sell. Any ideas would be fabulous.
Well, Ideas per se are not the biggest hurdle for me. I have lots of ideas for new designs and styles and projects... My difficulty is in following through with all my fabulous ideas and making them feasible options for my store.
I want to do quite a bit with infant/toddler clothing and accessories as well as crochet delights and ladies fashion. It's hard to hone my ideas into one mold. I have also done a bit of business with a friend in her shop specializing in fur hand muffs and fur wraps for weddings or special occasions.
As I meander through my thoughts via media I feel like I'm coming to the conclusion of keeping the crochet and random sewing projects as fun bonus items for the shop and specializing in infant/toddler clothing and accesories. I have also been handed the reins of the girls hair bows shop just for fun. I'm gonna list what I've got made already for that and slowly build up my inventory.
