Joining Kindred Sisters

http://kindredsisterssellingblog.blogspot.com

Not to long ago I applied to a wonderful site that offered a mix of primitive, vintage, folk art and even some fabulous glittery offerings. I wasn't sure if I would get in as it is so difficult to do so with the bigger sites. An Open House was on Saturday that I was in and I actually (do to being so busy) forgot about applying to this great site. On Monday, this week however, I got an email to die for!!! I had been excepted. I can't begin to tell you how honored and excited I am to be apart of such a wonderful, talented and diverse group of artisans.

Here's a list of just a few of the wonderful artisans you can visit:

Mystical Entities
The Pixies' Thimble
The Artful Attic
Sweet Magnolia's Farm
Barefoot Primitives

Don't forget to stop on over for a visit and see all the wonderful work done by these talented artists and soon to be me. I will be listing on the 7th of October, but will keep you updated regarding that.



Have a wonderful, creative day. God bless. Cathy

Fanny Crosby an Amazing Woman


Fanny Crosby wrote over 5,000 hymns in her day. Many have been added to our hymnals for singing and many artists have updated some songs for a more modern edge. Her willingness and trust in our savior even in her blindness humbles me to the core. Please read on.

"Frances Jane "Fanny" Crosby (1820-1915) was an American hymn writer and poetess, who wrote over 8,000 hymns during her life. One time a preacher sympathetically remarked, "I think it is a great pity that the Master did not give you sight when He showered so many other gifts upon you." She replied quickly, "Do you know that if at birth I had been able to make one petition, it would have been that I should be born blind?" "Why?" asked the surprised clergyman. "Because when I get to heaven, the first face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Savior!"


Her unfailing cheerfulness, her childlike trust in the divine watch care over her own life, enabled her to say to others:

"God will take care of you, be not afraid,
He is your safeguard through sunshine and shade;
Tenderly watching, and keeping his own,
He will not leave you to wander alone."

Such hymns as: "Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine," "Jesus, keep me near the Cross," "Saviour, more than life to me," and many others equally well known, were born in her own heart life."

From: Christian Biography Resources: http://www.wholesomewords.org/biography/bcrosby4.html

Never underestimate what the Lord can do with you, even if you have shortcomings and disabilities, just ask, believe and trust.

Prim hugs,

This will be a quick and easy project and can be done in no time. I 'll let ya know when they are available. Have a wonderful, creative day. God bless.
