Got your Goat {funding a missionary with Scripture Calendars}

There are pictures of goats hanging up around church these days.

It makes Cora FREAK OUT. She loves goats at the moment. Why? I have no idea really.  Whenever you have your phone or iPad out she thinks that you’re going to show her videos of baby goats! Or she hassles you with her adorable, “goat? goat? goat? awwww baby!” until you do.

So back to the goats hanging up around church. It is a fundraiser our church is doing to raise funds for a missionary in Syria. The idea is that we as a church will be able to help fund a goat farm for a group of missionaries there who will help build the community through the work and care of the goats. So, our church gave $10 to whoever wanted to try to use that money to make money out of it for the cause.

During all the crazy of the last couple of weeks(you know, buying and selling a house, packing, going to a conference, chasing two crazy littles, being pregnant(and huge as people like to remind me)) I came up with a plan. I had to think of something that I still had the supplies unpacked for, and that I could make multiples of (instead of doing anything custom which seems to be my normal…) I decided to make a scripture calendar.

Usually in August, as everyone is gearing back to go back to school there are all sorts of calendars and goals going on for the new school year.

So the idea of this is that there is a scripture a month to help you memorize a verse each month!

They are 5×7 size printed on card stock.

There are twelve verses for August 2018-July 2019 My hope  is that these verses will encourage you daily whether you hang this on your fridge or put it next to your computer while you work. You will have the opportunity to read those verses daily and hopefully bury them deep in your heart.   So, who wants to help a missionary purchase some goats while getting a pretty little calendar with a purpose? 😉

They are $20 each(plus shipping if you don’t live near me). Email me or contact me if you’re interested!    

My prayer is that they would encourage you and point you constantly to the Lord. We all could use that, right? Amen. 🙂

a new listing in my etsy shop

Hey friends!

There have been a lot of inquiries about the kind of portrait rendering that I’ve been doing for friends and for my family lately, so I thought I’d add a listing to my etsy shop.

These little renderings that I take from pictures are so fun and sweet. I feel like they are so simple and almost childish but I love them. I’ve been making them for gifts a lot recently but I’m always nervous to know if the receiver is really going to like them. It’s funny how nervous I can still get about my art. Anyway, I’ve SO enjoyed having ours framed and hanging in our dining room and I plan to keep updating it as time goes on.

I love having a custom little rendering of our family. And I know lots of other people do too!

If you are interested, please go check it out here!

Of course you can always find me at: Miss Grace Designs 🙂 I haven’t had the energy to keep up with adding much to my shop lately but I’m still there!

then there was this larger angel:

day 24

which i’m super excited about and totally in love with. it was the largest size painting i’ve ever done and i think i was just so inspired it was one of the fastest ones too! there’s layers of text and music under the paint that you can see when you get up close.   {i have yet to get a really good photo of her. but i’m planning on setting up my tripod for that this weekend.}

and now they are almost all up on my society6 shop.  how fun is that?

thanksgiving photos and sale

 

 

i am still jet-lagged from our trip to Seattle. we went for thanksgiving week and Sophia is still sleeping in till 9. {please do that again tomorrow, sweetheart! ha…} but we had a lovely time visiting with all of these people, the Holderman clan:

IMG_5605

{let me tell you, trying to get Sophia to stay still and look at the camera was quite the ordeal!}

the sunday before thanksgiving we left for the airport straight from church. sophia had a chance to sit on a sleigh. although she has no idea why she got to pose this way, she was really cute about it. so our holiday started with this cuteness: sliegh ride  then grandma Pam finally got to have plenty of cuddles. it was a restful week with family!  snuggles fireside

Sophia and i got to snuggle by the fire, drank lots of coffee and tea(it’s seattle…), we went to a park{which she adored!}, we celebrated a certain handsome man turning 31, ate lots of good food, probably gained weight and had lots of good times.

IMG_3152 IMG_3147 walking hugs (here she’s thanking dadda for bringing her to a park. she was so happy)  helping IMG_2996 IMG_3098

{she has a milk mustache and she wanted us to pray since we were about to have lunch} IMG_3104 IMG_3174   and Grandma and Grandpa got to soak up quality time with the girl.

oh, and Husbuddy and i got to go on a date. shopping, wine flights, and ice skating. it was fun. (and maybe not the best combination lol) wine flight     my love we had so much fun that i didn’t do any holiday shopping! ha. i also didn’t post about any of the sales that Society6 had for black friday or anything! what.
