Opening for 48 hours only

I’ve had so many requests for etsy prints… that I’m opening my etsy shop for 48 hours only this weekend. Don’t miss the opportunity to purchase a few fun designs. I’m still not certain when or if I’ll be reopening my shop for good… so snag the deals while you can.

a heads up

Just wanted to let y’all know that my etsy shop will be going on vacation for the summer starting Tuesday, May 29 (day after Memorial Day). I am excited to be spending my time outside with my 5 kiddos while the weather is nice and sunny. The shop will reopen probably in August or September. Head over and get any last minute gifts or prints.

Here’s a 5×7 Freebie print for your Memorial Day Weekend.

Back from Vacation

Not that I had much of a VACATION, but we’re back up in the etsy shop. I only have a few limited designs for sale right now until I get my groove back. The exciting news is that we have a new Living Christ design to accompany the Proclamation.

Free Download: CHARITY quote

This quote by Marvin J. Ashton is one of my favorites. If we could live our life – full of Charity – think of how much better off we’d be.

These freebies are 8×10 and the download includes all 8 files in .jpg format.

2012 One Little Word Posters

Have you selected your One Little Word yet for 2012?

I chose “Uplift.”

Haven’t heard of One Little Word? … You can find out more from… Ali Edwards: One Little Word

I also love this explanation by Sherrie Johnson:

“New beginnings don’t have to be measured in years. At one point in Paul’s teachings, he tells the Corinthians, “Though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). In other words, our bodies might be growing older and becoming weaker, but our inward being, our spirits, are renewed daily through Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost.

“That is one reason I like having a word for the year instead of goal resolutions. My word is not something that is kept or broken like a goal; it just floats with me in whatever I am doing. If I am cleaning house, I’m thinking rejuvenate—do it better than ever before. If I am studying, I’m thinking rejuvenate my studies — have more enthusiasm and excitement in my study. If I am with an old friend, I’m thinking rejuvenate my friendship—don’t take friendship for granted but cherish it. Instead of feeling like something extra to do, my word resolution enhances and invigorates everything I am already doing. In this way I help the natural process of letting the Spirit renew me day by day by day without getting discouraged or being tempted to give up. I love it!” (Sherrie Johnson)

I thought it would be fun to invite y’all to participate in One Little Word 2012. New in the etsy shop is an opportunity to get your “One Little Word” in print. Each custom order will be $10 but you’ll receive 2 different sizes (because it’s good to hang one in a visible spot in your home … like above the kitchen sink… and have a smaller one to use as a bookmark.) You select the wording, the colors, the fonts. You can add the year, add a scripture, add a quote… you choose!

Head on over to the Etsy and pick up your 2012 One Little Word Print now.

The Story behind this Awesome Quote

This is Steph… my friend from BYU since oh… 1996. I was a newbie and she showed me the ropes at work and on campus. If you need a campus tour, she’s your gal. We still keep in touch. She, in Alaska, I, in Utah. Last month we were instant messaging back and forth (isn’t technology fabulous?!). We were talking (rather… typing) about all the fabulous blessings/hardships/callings we deal with in this life. Even after a hard day … and realizing things were not going to get much easier in the immediate future … what did she say?

“Tie on your bonnet, sister, we’re going to make it to Zion!”

Oh, how I laughed.
I absolutely loved it!
I’m not clever enough to think of AWESOME things like that.

Best Encouraging Thoughts EVER!

I hope I remember it always, especially when I’m melting into a puddle of tears.

We can do it people.

“We must not lose faith. We will make it to Zion! We will!”

So – if you want to join the “Tie on your Bonnet” club, go ahead and mozy on over to my etsy shop and select the design of your choice.

All proceeds from “Tie on your Bonnet” will go to Stephanie Bacon (and her husband and six boys)… because she’s such an AWESOME encouraging friend. (Now don’t embarrass me here… I don’t want to hand over $5 to her).

Don’t forget that all prints are 25% off until Christmas Eve (yikes… it’s coming up so fast!). Use code JOYFUL at checkout.
