I'm still on cloud nine!!!

I've gotta brag on God today!!!
I shared with y'all on Saturday that I would be participating in my very first craft fair.  It turned out better than I could have HOPEd for.  
We had prayed that God would bless our efforts and did HE ever!!!
My poor hands had ached and cramped from crocheting so much (carpal tunnel and Arthur Ritis!!!) ....but it was so worth it!!!  

Just as the scripture that I chose for Wise Old Owl Designs says.....

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.

.....I crocheted with all my might and God rewarded us!!!

Here are a few pictures from Saturday.....

This is where the craft fair was the parking lot at New Creations Salon and Spa.   If you notice on the sign their scripture to go along with their business is 2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

A little advertisement for Wise Old Owl Designs I printed out and put in a frame and sat on an easel!!
This is how the table was set up.  
All the wooden "props" belong to Jess and it was her idea to go with that theme!!!
Isn't she so smart?!?!?
Takes after her Daddy!!!
A few items we had for sale....some little owlie purses, dish/wash cloths and flower pins.....
 Some hats and scarves.....
Headbands and "necklaces"
Book Markers
A box full of hair bows.....
A hat and scarf set....

I was so blessed that we didn't bring a lot of these items back home!!!
What I did take away were several orders!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes HE is!!!

I'll leave you with this final picture.  Sam, our oldest GRANDson asked for my phone so he could take some pictures.  I didn't look at them until last night and here was my favorite of all.....
....Pappy and Sam's baby brother, Sawyer!!!

Thank you, Lord, for your blessings on our efforts!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. Congratulations! How wonderful that the Lord blessed all your hard work! I also use Ecclesiastes 9:10 as the verse for my esty shop: Queen B's Busy Work! :0)

  4. Hi Deb,

  5. I had to come back by and snag that scripture here.
