Nautical Print: Sure & Steadfast

My darling friend Katie shared an inspiring SFD Nautical Printable on her new site: The Vintage Mother.Loot-678x1024A few weeks ago I was able to attend a marvelous retreat where we laughed, cried,
were nurtured by the Good Word of God, felt of His Holy Spirit,
and were surrounded by kindred spirits – women who understood our hearts.
I am so grateful for these dear friends.

This print: Sure & Steadfast, is a great focus for centering your hope & faith in Jesus Christ.

Go check out Katie’s post to download the Free Printable.

*Free* Easter Printable

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love knowing that because of the sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we will all be resurrected. This is my greatest HOPE. Hope by itself is nothing. HOPE in Jesus Christ is EVERYTHING.

Today I am sharing an Easter Printable of one of my favorite scriptures, Moroni 7:41. It reminds me that “There is Always Hope.”

New in the Etsy Shop: Instant Downloads

Just wanted to post a quick update on what’s happening in the etsy shop.  We are set up for ***INSTANT DOWNLOAD***.  This means no more waiting on your end.  Wahoo!  I will have all the listings up in the next few weeks.  But go check out what’s there now.

We have a new ‘Women of God’ print that I adore.  What a powerful message to strengthen us.women of god

Also new are the Oath & Covenant of the Priesthood, Standard of Truth Quote, and Doctrine & Covenants Section 4 in various colors. If you purchase the bundle, you save 10%.

I just relisted ‘You Make my Heart Happy’ if you’re in need of a last minute valentine’s day card. You get 30 files for $2.
16x20 8x1010

Because we are doing instant downloads, instead of just receiving 1 design/color for $5/$10… you now receive a set of coordinating colors for that same price. More for your money. Buy one listing and you’ll have lots of color options; these make great gifts for friends and family.

That’s all for now. Check back weekly in the etsy shop for new designs.

Nativity Blocks

I saw these cute nativity blocks for children on pinterest. I knew I had the images from a purchase long ago on (which no longer exists). Me & My Big Ideas sold the stickers but I can’t find either digital or stickers anywhere online. I hope it’s appropriate to share these edited & framed images with ya’ll since they aren’t available anymore.  These are the blocks I made.  The fun part is that you can make it as little or big as you want.  You could do just Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus… leave out the wisemen & angels… no animals, etc.  Lots of options.

This was a fun project for this holiday season. I kinda wish I would have used 1×4’s… but I used a 2×4 for the longer Scenes… and a 2×3 for the little blocks. You can also use a 2×4 for the little blocks as they will fit well. I’m no modge-podge or staining expert, but it seemed to work out alright. And I’m pleased to announce that I didn’t even cut off any fingers when I used the saw to cut the boards. That is always a good thing, especially when it’s your first time.

Here’s what you get in the free downloads:

2×3 Nativity Prints & 3×8 Nativity scene
(1 set of all individual images for printing at home
1 set arranged on 4×6 cards for easy printing at Costco)

2×3 Christmas Prints & 3×8 Santa scene
(1 set of all individual images for printing at home
1 set arranged on 4×6 cards for easy printing at Costco)

And because I can’t get enough of my Zu-Zu girl… here she is enjoying the blocks.

Terms of Use: Personal Use Only. Do not make any money from these prints or sell them.
